My Story Begins
In AIA, young learners are explicitly taught social and emotional skills through direct instruction, teacher modeling, Nick videos, purposeful play, hands-on learning, self-exploration and more. With literacy-rich lessons, K-2 learners meet Nobly and an entire cast of characters to help them acquire the SEL skills, behaviors and mindsets that are foundational to a lifetime of success and happiness.
As young authors of their own lives, students repeatedly learn about and practice ways to better understand and manage themselves while discovering safe, productive ways to interact with others. Six chapters in all, AIA begins with a Preface that focuses on a successful beginning to the school year, teaching important classroom rules and routines as well as introducing AIA and its theme for the year.
Moreover, AIA for the primary grades helps cultivate a classroom and school culture that is safe, kind, hard-working, empathetic and a positive learning environment. In K-2, students learn to be NOBLE students in a NOBLE classroom in a NOBLE school.
