Scope & Sequence

Our stand-alone lesson plans with flexible scope & sequence are the perfect resource for Tier 1, 2 and 3 instruction and intervention.

Our framework of well-being is based on several educational theories and reflects a synthesized approach to what we know about the conditions needed for educators and students to do their best work, the well-being competencies that educators and students must acquire through multi-tiered systems of support, and the culminating celebrations of educators and students thriving in any given system.

PreK-12 curriculum features

  • free-standing lessons specifically and explicitly designed to enhance students’ social and emotional competencies
  • strategies that promote reflection by students and build positive and supportive relationships among teachers, students, and families
  • lessons that integrate well-being and academic instruction
  • organizational strategies designed to create systemic structures and a schoolwide culture conducive to learning.


Our PreK-12 student curriculum was written by teachers, administrators, and service providers. Aligned with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, our student curriculum helps students acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions for physical, social, emotional, mental, and academic well-being.

Our standards-based lessons include hands-on activities, topic- based reflection prompts, engaging discussions, interactive graphic organizers, and integrated deep learning opportunities for all students.
