Sanford Harmony is a skills promotion program that uses free-standing lessons to promote social and emotional learning for students in PreK through sixth grade. Lessons are combined as grade bands for PreK and K, first and second grade, and fifth and sixth grade. Grades three and four have lessons for those specific grades and are not combined as a grade band. Each grade/grade band includes approximately 20 lessons.
The program consists of five units or focus themes: diversity and inclusion, empathy and critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, and peer relationships. These focus themes are presented in ways that are differentiated for each grade/grade band to account for students’ developmental levels. In lower elementary, lessons include storybooks that focus on core themes. Games are provided for upper elementary levels.
