March is the perfect time for our young people to practice and learn skills that support academic success, healthy relationships, future careers, civil engagement and so much more. We, as educators and caregivers, need to find ways to bring our schools, communities and families together to support every child through social and emotional learning. They need caring relationships, trust and support to grow, learn and thrive, which needs to be the goal of all teachers, each and every day.

One place we can go to find wonderful SEL activities and resources for educators is The Achievery. The Achievery, a free online digital learning platform, offers a wide variety of SEL activities and resources for educators.  The SEL themes The Achievery focuses on are: Self Awareness, Self Management, Responsible Decision Making, Relationship Skills and Social Awareness.
