Review for Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement , Newtown, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After teaching secondary STEM subjects for 25 years, it feels like the opportunity of a lifetime to teach SEL skills to elementary students on the island of Kauai using the Choose Love curriculum. The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement provides simple and elegant tools that prepare kids to respond to life's challenges from a calm and mindful viewpoint. It provides them them practical ways to reducing the life chaos, destructive neural pathways and negative mental habits that result from low emotional self-management skills. It provides them with a kind of user's guide for their own brain, turning emotional self-management into a user-friendly experience. Their simple approach to SEL empowers students to learn and discuss essential intra- and inter-personal skills that last a lifetime. It earns my highest recommendation!
