An Elementary Approach To Build Resilience In Every Student

The New WhyTry Elementary Approach

We are excited to introduce our latest program addition: The WhyTry Elementary Approach! This new set of tools and resources is specifically designed to address the unique emotional needs of elementary students, helping teachers like you engage and motivate young learners who have fallen behind in the aftermath of Covid.

In this webinar, we discuss how this new approach can help you:

  • Address the emotional needs of young learners with age-appropriate, trauma-informed strategies.
  • Engage and motivate students who are struggling to catch up academically in the aftermath of Covid 19.
  • Foster resilience and social-emotional skills essential for success in and out of the classroom.
