May is Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness month. Raising A Reader is here to support you and your community. We have several offerings to help with conversations highlighting how caregivers and educators can adapt to life after the pandemic, acknowledge and learn from emotions, and take time to process changes, while contributing to health and wellbeing of others.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is crucial for children’s development. It helps them develop critical skills for school success and overall well-being. By promoting empathy, positive relationships, emotional management, and problem-solving, SEL prepares children to navigate life’s challenges with resilience.
- Our Social Emotional Book Only collection, which contains 10 books and a downloadable guide is the perfect way to add books into your Classic Red Book Bag Program to help with skills needed for success. This collection, and the supplemental resources, help establish and maintain conversations on empathy, positive relationships, managing emotions, problem solving, and more.
- As an optional add-on to our Super Summer Learning Adventures offering, we have a social-emotional pack ready for purchase, which contains a family guide to support social emotional development in children, and a cozy stuffed RAR animal companion. These add-ons have been popular with our Affiliates looking to provide additional resources to caregivers over the summer.
- Have you met Ready Freddy? Ready Freddy is a valuable tool for fostering Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in children. This cozy stuffed RAR animal companion helps children explore emotions, empathy, problem-solving, and positive relationships.
