Play, Say & Practice

Social Emotional Learning Curriculum

Why Is Social Emotional Learning So Important?

Play is an important part of children's learning and development, it is the language of children. Play helps children work through their emotions and learn about the world around them. While short-term achievement might seem important, the long-term benefits of childhood filled with play are far greater than a "4" on a standards based report card or progress report.

As education continues to move in the wrong direction, our youngest learners will suffer for it. When children have educational experiences that are not geared to their developmental level or in tune with their learning needs and cultures, it can cause them great harm, including feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, and confusion. Perhaps it's time we listen to the early childhood development experts?

 The Play, Say & Practice™ Social Emotional Learning Curriculum feels like playtime, you guide children through social situations and empower them to act out feelings and concerns without fear of embarrassment. With the help of the characters you create together, children begin to recognize and modify their own behaviors. This launches the process of self-awarness and the ability to observe the impact of choices they make. These are critical coping skills and tools they'll need for a lifetime. The best part? As you teach those crucial learning skills, everyone is having fantastic fun! The social emotional learning curriculum is a perfect fit for Pre K- 2nd Grade.

     This curriculum supports each child by offering carefully selected and sequenced learning experiences to foster healthy social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. The program allows children to develop tangible skills through experiences with music, art, storytelling, hands-on activities and teacher directed lessons that, in addition to skills development, emphasize practice and reflection.


Our teaching method follows this uncomplicated format:

  • PLAY through characters, endearing visuals, music, and activities children love.

  • SAY a simple script that's included with every lesson guide.

  • PRACTICE the life lesson together, building their confidence so they will continue cultivating the behavior on their own.
