A joyful interactive program blending exploration of the physical heart, heart health and the feeling heart.
Tailored for classroom or home use, HeartSmarts Adventure for ages 4 to 6 is a wonderful new way to teach children how the heart works, and habits for keeping it healthy and strong. Along the way, they will learn about their emotions and how to manage them. As they work through the six artfully crafted Adventures, children will love completing more than 60 engaging and informative activities. They can sing along with HeartSmarts’ joyful songs and practice three special self-regulation techniques that can help them take charge of their emotions. When the last Adventure is over, children will possess important life-affirming knowledge and skills that will serve them throughout their childhood and into adulthood.
Blended Online Social And Emotional Learning
