To make the big transition to elementary school, kids need to learn new skills, such as how to control impulses, stay focused, and follow rules. The research-based Second Step program helps teachers give students the skills and confidence they need to adjust to a full day of learning. Kids are captivated by the colorful Second Step lesson cards, interactive songs, games, and especially beloved puppets Puppy and Snail and plush Be-Calm Bunny.
