Effective Social-Emotional Learning Program for Kindergarten With* Positive Action*

A very exciting learning adventure begins! Kindergartners embark on a social-emotional learning journey to the "Kingdom of Positive Action," where they learn more about themselves. The kingdom comes to life as a series of colorful posters. Throughout the year, nine mural posters are displayed to complete the big picture of the kingdom.

The students are joined in this adventure by their new special friends, Picks-It and Nix-It, who lead them through the lessons and challenges ahead. Picks-It, a wise and experienced raccoon, and Nix-It, a young, innocent panda, join the class as two handheld plush puppets that help keep the students engaged throughout the curriculum. Together, they travel through the three lands of the kingdom to learn about themselves and reach "Castle Self-Concept." By the end of the curriculum, the students uncover the important secret that lies in the castle. It is a secret that helps them learn how to feel good about themselves.

In this first lesson, Picks-It and Nix-It introduce themselves to the students. They take the students with them as they prepare to begin their adventure of self-development and discovery.

Nix-It can’t deny being afraid of what lies ahead in their journey. Picks-It assures him that although it is not going to be easy, it is going to be rewarding. Nix-It begins to feel excited when Picks-It delivers him to his first test—to look into the pond and tell Picks-It what he sees. Nix-It sees something in the pond, and although it is not very clear, it surprises him.
