Too Good programs in K-5 build a healthy foundation for early learners as they develop social emotional skills through engaging songs and activities. Both Too Good for Drugs and Too Good for Violence define a sequential set of core components through fully scripted and prepared lessons. Students learn goal-setting, responsible decision making, emotion management, effective communication, and bonding and relationship skills to lay the groundwork for a drug-free and violence-free life.
Too Good for Drugs further expands on social emotional skill sets by giving students the opportunity to practice peer-pressure refusal strategies through role-plays and other interactive games. Grades K-3 establish healthy norms for children, whether it be getting enough rest, engaging in exercise, selecting nutritious foods, or being a good friend. Grades 4 and 5 delve further into healthy choices by teaching the negative effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use on the body and brain, emphasizing the benefits of leading a drug-free life.
In Too Good for Violence students set out on a path toward a peaceable place. The program encourages peaceful living and cooperation as students learn to respect themselves and others, to celebrate differences, and to employ effective methods of conflict resolution so they may learn to be peaceable people.
Together, the programs develop happy, healthy, and confident children journeying into the Too Good way of life.
