Samford Harmony - SEL Curriculum

Parent Welcome Letter

The Samford Harmony program provides PreK-6th grade teachers with everything they need to successfully social-emotional learning into the classroom, including training, lessons, activities, videos, stories, games, and songs.

Harmony provides educators with the tools to foster and support social connections among all students, and to promote the social, emotional, and cognitive skills students need to successfully negotiate peer interactions, develop positive peer relationships, and thrive in school. Harmony incorporates multiple methods to teach positive relationships and create an inclusive classroom environment. A multi-layered approach is necessary to build a mutually respectful learning community.

These goals are accomplished through:
Relationship-building lessons and activities that help students learn and practice key social and emotional competencies.
Everyday practices that provide students with ongoing, supported opportunities to interact with peers and participate in dialogue and decision-making about issues related to the classroom community.

By combining these approaches, students not only gain interpersonal competencies, but they also have continual experiences that promote the development of positive attitudes and relationships, as well as a supportive classroom climate.
