The SSIS SEL Preschool Instructional Program (PIP) Manual is designed to be used by teachers and other preschool professionals to teach and improve social emotional skills for all children ages 3 to 6. The SEL PIP is inspired by (a) the continuing research on the importance of social emotional learning to the academic and social wellbeing of young children and (b) the conceptual and policy work of the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL). This universal instructional program provides a S.A.F.E.R. ---Sequenced, Active, Fun, Explicit, and Responsive -- way to teach children up to 15 social emotional skills that represent one or more of the CASEL Five competency domains (CASEL, 2013).

The SEL PIP’s Fundamental Five and Terrific Ten Skill Units require less than 2% of annual instructional time to implement and will lead to improved social and communication skills and reduced challenging behaviors in preschool and kindergarten classrooms! The SEL PIP includes:

  • 15 units comprising 45 lessons with role-play applications, suggested story book reads related to each skill, and tips for differentiating social emotional skill instruction in the classroom.
  • 100% digitally delivered intervention resources for classroom-based or remote instruction.
  • Engaging and memorable TIPS (Teaching Important Positive Skills) musical sessions with Mr. Parker are embedded in each unit to make learning SEL fun for everybody.
