Scope and Sequence

All of our episodes include the five core CASEL competencies. Our research team identified three additional competencies for children with LD (belonging, learning goals, and resilience). Read our Elementary School White Paper and read our Middle School White Paper to find out more.

Our episode sequencing is research-based, with consideration of the developmentally appropriate stages for introducing each SEL theme.

Themes are repeated in multiple episodes, as repetition is crucial to a young learner’s mastery of new concepts. The video storylines become more advanced but they allow students to practice some of the same SEL themes from grade to grade.

4th Grade

The fourth-grade sequence continues to emphasize accepting differences and developing self-advocacy skills through:

  • Understanding emotions
  • Finding the confidence to take risks
  • Exploring how to face challenging situations at home and school
  • Celebrating each student’s inventive mind
  • Learning not to compare ourselves with others

The skills included in this series are: SELF-AWARENESS LEARNING GOALS RESILIENCE

5th Grade

The 5th grade curriculum focuses on developing strategies to deal with the stress of academic and social pressure, and increasing outside expectations through:

  • Accepting/Normalizing anxiety as something many students deal with
  • Explore new ways of facing obstacles by using them to grow and thrive
  • Practice self-acceptance
  • Develop tools for self-advocacy


6th Grade

The 6th grade sequence deepens many of the themes present in the earlier grades while introducing new skills to meet the increased responsibilities of middle school academics and growing social awareness of preadolescent students.

  • Leveraging strengths to independently overcome challenges
  • Navigating conflict in peer relationships
  • Taking ownership of learning with self-advocacy strategies

The skills included in this series are: RESILIENCE BELONGING LEARNING GOALS
