You can inspire your class to continue building SEL skills together as a team in ANY learning environment with LaGolda, an interactive, pro-social animated series + online educational program available on Discovery Education ExperienceCheer on elementary students as they explore SEL essentials with LaGolda, an awesome 8-yearold girl who travels the world making friends and learning how to overcome obstacles by successfully managing emotions. 

Lean into SEL Month in a way that helps address the challenges facing students in 2021 with a variety of collaborative, grab-and-go LaGolda resources. Incorporating SEL into your curriculum is proven way to boost students’ overall attitudes and engagement, while increasing social skills like kindness, sharing, and empathy(1). 

Create a safe space in class for positive conversations about timely topics using hands-on LaGolda activities, which each connect to an episode in the animated series. 

    Do your students know what an “underserved population” is? 
    How often do students unknowingly perpetuate norms / stereotypes?
    What does food access look like in your students’ community and surrounding areas? 

SEL competency not only empowers your elementary students with greater emotional resiliency, it literally enhances overall academic outcome! Supporting students’ social and emotional development produces an 11% point gain in grades and test scores1, and SEL competency is accepted to be at least as predictive of academic and career achievement as IQ(2). 

UnitedHealthcare is committed to inspiring the healthiest generation yet by partnering with Discovery Education to make LaGolda resources available through the Discovery Education K-12 learning platformShow students how to play the long game for a lifetime of happiness and success by building SEL essentials in any learning environment. Take your students on an uplifting animated SEL adventure today with LaGolda and friends.
