A growing number of students starting kindergarten lack basic social, emotional, and behavioral skills. And these skills are essential for school readiness and academic success.
Just like letters, numbers, shapes, and colors, the earlier kids start learning and practicing social and emotional skills, the more successful they’ll be in school. In one study, 4th graders identified as “not ready” in kindergarten were seven times more likely to have been suspended or expelled and 80% more likely to have been retained. So there’s no time to waste in building these skills in K-1 students.
Introducing Zoo Academy®: For Students in Grades K-1
Students at Zoo Academy will help animals like Owlivia the owl learn to respect others’ personal space and not call out in class, or Tango the gorilla, who needs some pointers on making new friends. While “teaching” the animals, students will be learning and practicing these skills themselves.
