Story Time Video Library - Books for Social Emotional Learning

(View Complete Item Description)

"On our new Story Time With Panorama Education resource library, we have curated a group of stories designed to help educators and parents combine literacy and SEL. (Of course, we also have a few that are simply meant to be read for pleasure and to make us laugh!) In order to support educators and caretakers develop “master readers,” our team wanted to share a few of our favorite children’s books with you and the children you support. You will notice that the stories we chose will also highlight characters' thoughts, challenges, and emotions. Talking through these with your students or children will help develop those SEL skills. We have also created an accompanying guide outlining best practices in building literacy to support you as you use the videos."
