For each grade from kindergarten through grade five, RULER includes six units designed to build skills and enduring understandings of emotion themes and concepts. These understandings are written in kid-friendly language and build on one another, ranging from “I have emotions, and they provide me with information” to “I can use what I learned from studying my emotions to make positive changes in my environment”.

Additionally, we provide support for integrating emotion vocabulary into the classroom curriculum. We provide developmentally appropriate “feeling word guides” for each grade level (12 words per grade) that can be integrated into existing curricular content and deeply explored through narrative, curricular and family connections, and emotion regulation strategy sessions.
