Peekapak is a Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) platform for pre-kindergarten to grade 3 that makes teaching important SEL concepts like gratitude, perseverance, empathy and teamwork fun, easy and engaging for students, teachers and families.
The power of storytelling in teaching young children is at the heart of Peekapak and their online platform is filled with original SEL-focused stories, a diverse and relatable cast of characters, and engaging lessons for the classroom and the home, making it exciting for students to learn and practice SEL topics.
Peekapak is aligned to the English Language Arts standards and is broken out into bite-sized, easy-to-use lessons. Lessons are research-supported and include a wide mix of different teaching and learning styles, such as role-playing, discussion, making connections, group work, drawing, and movement activities. Lesson plans are available for Prek to Grades 3.
Connection to parents:
Peekapak bridges the gap between the classroom and the home by enabling teachers to send updates to parents about what was taught in the classroom and to share the terms used to teach SEL concepts. Parents are able to access the digital storybooks read in class (to re-read at home) and receive discussion questions and activities to do with their child. This makes it easy for parents to reinforce classroom learning in the home through fun materials and a common language.
