Manners of the Heart

Ballinger Elementary has partnered with Manners of the Heart to bring our students a guidance and counseling curriculum that supports social emotional learning by teaching self-control, responsibility and respect for others. This results in productive learning environments where individual student motivation drives academic success. The 23-week curriculum includes a 20-minute lesson on Day One introducing the Heart Attributes emphasized that week. Days Two–Five are 5-10 minute engaging activities reinforcing the weekly principles and incorporating original songs, stories, puppets, journal prompts, full-color animation, games, crafts, and role-play. Set in the imaginary town of Merryville, the curriculum is based on original stories which ignite the imagination and reveal a world of possibilities. The host of colorful characters welcomes all young visitors as they enter a world filled with Respect, Kindness, Acceptance and Hope. Parents can read the parent involvement letter and engage in conversation at home to help bring the Heart Attributes into their home.
