      We use Second Step as well and I think it is really great. I also highly recommend Responsive Classroom. I have been to one of their workshops and subscribe to their newsletter. I have some of their publications too and they are fantastic.

          Our elementary school uses Second Step curriculum. We have been using community circles to check in with each other and do quick lessons on SEL. Today we focused on reading body language and how to ask a friend what they need. Engineering projects are also a great place to embed SEL.
