Review for Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement , Newtown, CT, USA
As a school psychologist who has expertise in social-emotional learning (SEL), I recommend Choose Love Movement to all teachers and families with no reservations. When students returned to school full-time after a year of hybrid instruction from COVID-19, staff quickly realized that addressing our social-emotional and behavioral needs had to be the priority. Research tells us that providing explicit instruction in SEL is a critical part of meeting those needs. The ready access to Choose Love Movement, specifically because it is FREE, allowed my school to begin implementation within just a few weeks of identifying the need for an SEL program. Most SEL programs are such a pricey investment, which delays the process while staff try to get district buy-in, find the funds, formally train staff, etc. Choose Love allowed us to bypass those barriers to get kids what they need when they need it. The lessons are developmentally appropriate, engaging, and simple so teachers can implement them with little prep. Thank you for your generous work on these lessons and resources. During such a hard time for educators, you make our work a little bit easier.
