How this curriculum works:

This curriculum is a 6-module program. Each week there is a different theme: kindness, feelings, manners, respect, empathy and courage and with each theme having a corresponding book.

The format of the program follows this framework: Inspire, Story, Activate, Share, Reflect.

Monday: Inspire, Story, Activate day 1 activity.
Tuesday: Activate Day 2 activity
Wednesday: Activate Day 3 activity
Thursday: Activate Day 4 activity
Friday: Activate Day 5 activity, Share and Reflect

Each lesson has been purposefully designed as a mini-lesson, ranging from five to 20 minutes in length, and can be implemented throughout the day, flexibly fitting into your classroom schedule. Each theme could be spread over a month, where this curriculum becomes a guide to inspire you to infuse social and emotional learning in your classroom.

Philosophy: play-based, hands-on, engagement through active learning.

We follow the CASEL framework to foster knowledge, skills, and attitudes across five areas of social and emotional competence: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.

“This program saved the day. Our two children (ages 4 and 6) have been home since March of this year, and they can’t sit still in front of a computer unless it’s playing Peppa Pig. Little Dude’s “At-Home Lessons” has kept them busy for hours and hours – and they’re learning really important lessons and doing really interesting activities!” Erin (NJ)
“I’ve searched everywhere for a program that includes the lessons, teaching guide, and the materials needed to homeschool my 4-year-old. Then I found this gem. I’ve referred everyone I know to this program – and now I look like the hero!” Kris (TX)
“I was dreading the fall and fearing the inevitable ‘distance learning’…until I discovered this program. Now I’m excited to be a homeschool mommy!” Emily (CT)
“I am a good parent but was a bad homeschool teacher. I had no idea what or how to teach. But thanks to this program, I’m good at both now!” Sam (CA)
“My son and daughter-in-law were stressing out about homeschooling our 5-year-old grandson this year. Then I purchased this program for them and that stress literally disappeared overnight. Grandma to the rescue!” Elaine (FL)
