Digital Tools for Social–Emotional Learning

In honor of National Literacy Month and students heading back to school, Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and Macy’s are offering new, free resources and digital tools to support the fight against the national literacy crisis. This year’s support of Back-to-School and National Literacy Month encompasses supplemental classroom materials for the whole family and resources for literacy advocates, parents, and caregivers. The newly created “Be Your Best You social–emotional learning (SEL) collection focuses on the themes of confidence and empowerment. Through exercises and activities included in new educator guides and parent resources, students learn critical skills tied to empathy, tolerance, conflict resolution, and mindfulness. Literacy Network, RIF’s central portal with tools and resources needed for community stakeholders to take action, has launched new resources for back-to-school, including read-aloud guides, tips to create literacy centers in classrooms, literacy insights, webinars, best practice case studies, volunteer guides, and fundraising toolkits. And as children head back to school, Macy’s support of RIF’s matching grant program will provide more than 255,000 books to 126,775 students in 44 states and Puerto Rico during the 2019–2020 school year.
