My Special Word Collection
Help the children in your classroom or home explore the power of special words. Go on adventures with Charlie as he uses COURAGE to spend the night in his tent, with Rachel as she uses BASKETBALL to realize she is full of perseverance, and Alejandra as she becomes EMPOWERED to make her neighborhood a better place.
Bring the My Special Word collection to life with these lesson plans.

Worldreader and SEL
Worldreader’s programming, collections and activities support social-emotional learning as well as literacy skills.
Our all-in-one reading app BookSmart is designed to help readers learn beyond books and bring the lessons they find in stories into the real world. Our books include play-based activities to complete at school and at home to inspire action and build comprehension as well as SEL skills. Booksmart’s built-in prompts provide emotional support for caretakers and educators when discussing texts.
We use CASEL 5 as the framework for our SEL activities and materials, focusing on:
. Social awareness
. Responsible decision-making
. Relationship skills
