SEL Lessons based on the best-selling children’s book, The Crayon Box That Talked.
Since its publication in 1997, The Crayon Box that Talked has sold over 2 million copies and has been used by teachers, parents, and homeschoolers around the world to help kids understand the importance of appreciating others, despite our differences, and the value of teamwork and working together to accomplish great things.
Until now, there has never been a set of multimedia Social Emotional Learning Lessons developed by the author (and Big Word Club Plus founder), Shane DeRolf, and his team of academic all-stars.
The poem that started it all
While serving as president of Random House Entertainment, Shane was asked to produce an animated PSA for the Ad Council based on a poem he had written for a national campaign that would help kids understand the importance of appreciating one another, despite our differences, and the value of teamwork.
This is that video.
One year later, The Crayon Box That Talked became a book.
SEL Lessons for Preschool, Kindergarten, and 1st & 2nd Grade
In addition to 11 pages of age-appropriate ideas and activities that teachers, parents, and caregivers can use to help their 3-7 year-olds better understand The Crayon Box That Talked, we produced 5 animated “BIG WORD” videos to help kids get the most out of the Lessons. The words are: Unique, Respect, Integrity, Kindness, and Empathy.
In addition to the 6 videos, the Lessons come with 3 sets of
11 page printable PDF files for Preschool. Kindergarten, and
1st & 2nd Grade.
We hope these SEL Lessons and Videos will help you feed the hearts and heads of all the 3-7 year-olds in your life.
