"Emotional ABCs has
been a GODSEND."
A) Using a Parent Account: (Best for single family or 1-4 children)
Individual and Family Parent Accounts meet the needs of home educators by giving complete access to all content from our Emotional ABCs Classroom curriculum at no extra charge. The Parent Accounts include 20 Workshops plus the additional classroom resources included for the Workshop instruction. Parent accounts are month-to-month subscriptions and include a 7-day free trial.
Ways to use a Parent Account as a Home Educator:
i.) Independent Learning: Your child/ren can independently follow the consecutive online curriculum using the Lesson List of sequenced activities. The Lesson List connects to all educational resources of Emotional ABCs and presents our complete Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum. The independent program is self-contained, self-explanatory, and includes full voiceover.
ii.) For the Parent-as-Home-Educator: In addition to the Independent Learning option, parents can present the 20 consecutive Workshops of Emotional ABCs Classroom, designed for teacher-led, in-class instruction, to their child/ren. The Workshops elaborate on our Lesson List sequence by using additional offline resources for classroom engagement and providing teaching ideas to support more in-depth instruction. Full Curriculum Structure, Teacher’s Guide, and Print Library are included.
B) Using a Premium Schools Account: (Best for home education as part of a pod or other grouping with like-minded parents, or for more than 4 children being taught at a time.)
The Premium Schools Account includes all the benefits of the Parent Account listed above and adds individual sign-ins for up to 30 students and two educators. Educators can work with multiple families in a single location or remotely. In addition to presenting the Workshops and Lesson List materials, educators can assign individually paced activities to each student to be done in the class or at home. They can follow each child's progress through the program. The Premium Schools account is currently more than 90% discounted off the original Individual Parent price (less than $1 per student per month for a full classroom).
Emotional ABCs’ evidence-based Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum builds foundational emotional competency skills for young children ages 4-11. These skills, beginning with emotional awareness (the ability to know and communicate one’s emotions), and growing to include emotional regulation (the tools to modulate one’s emotional responses) and responsible decision-making (the ability to evaluate an emotional situation and choose a constructive course of action) have been proven to significantly improve later-developing social skills and also positively effect academic outcomes. (See supporting Scientific Studies page here.)
Our online and offline interactive activities use well-established teaching processes to hold a child's interest while building skills step-by-step. Emotional ABCs requires no parent or instructor training and is self-contained and self-explanatory.
Students progress through the curriculum, building specific skills in the following sequence: developing an understanding about emotions; acquiring an emotional vocabulary; doing a self-assessment of emotions through sensations; observing the emotions of others; learning self-regulation techniques; developing a repeatable decision-making process with a repertoire of good choices; practicing all skills in “What If” scenarios. Parents who oversee their child's participation can put the curriculum material into active family use by learning and then reiterating the new emotional skills language in the home.
