‘Learning skills for LIFE’, is a series of student journals that empower children to explore their thoughts, understand emotions and believe in themselves. The journals help them master life skills through SEL(social emotional learning). The SEL journals also help them ask questions to their trusted adults, you, on all that fascinates and amazes them.
Any and all questions are asked when children feel safe to fail, are self-aware and have growth- mindset. Learning skills for life, their SEL journal is here to support and empower every child !
Packed with positive thoughts, illustrations and writing prompts, these guided SEL journals have been created to help open conversations with children.
These interactive student journals will help children to become better versions of themselves using the power of their own mind.
