SocialEyes Together® makes it easy for teachers, group leaders, and other educational professionals to deliver Social Emotional Learning to students in unique, interactive, and practical ways that keep students engaged whether in person or online
SocialEyes Together offers interactive, dynamic, easily implementable SEL (Social Emotional Learning) lesson plans with tools and techniques for you to use right away in a small group or in your classroom.
The program features research-based, classroom-tested components including applied social improvisation activities, mindfulness scripts and exercises, and cognitive awareness lessons.
With these tools, teachers can lead SEL lessons with ease and clarity.
It is designed with detailed instructions, scripts for the leader of the group, and provides alternatives for more elementary and advanced versions of some of the therapeutic activities and exercises.
Students acquire essential social skills that build healthy relationships by engaging in thoughtful, mindful, and enjoyable activities. Students learn to be flexible, attentive to others, resilient, emotionally aware, self-regulated, and kind, for starters!
Students experience empathy and heart-based living. They embrace making mistakes as part of life and critical to learning. In doing so, they become kinder to themselves and to others in their group or classroom.
Students become mindful and present. The activities and exercises require heightened focus as participants Think, Act, Listen, and Look on Purpose.
Classrooms and groups become caring, creative environments where everyone belongs. New experiences lead them into uncharted territory where they connect and bond.
Included are SEL objectives for each of the five CASEL competencies for ease of use in IEP development and other data record keeping.
The activities are organized under specific objectives. You can choose the ones that address the desired skill. For example, if you’re trying to have your students improve flexibility, you can select the activities, exercises, tools, and techniques that fall under that heading and easily create your targeted lesson plan.

The implementation of SEL programming is an ongoing process that can be embedded into the school day or taught in ongoing group and classroom lessons.
