Fun to Learn, Easy to Teach, and Research-Based

Supported by music and videos, take-home activities, and stories kids relate to, the developmentally appropriate Second Step lessons have helped teachers instill social-emotional skills in their students for over 20 years. Best of all, the student lessons are easy to teach, right out of the box!

“Our district has been using the Second Step program for more than 15 years. We continue to use it because it’s fun, interactive, and easy to use; teachers and students like it; and it's cost-effective.”
