One of my favorite teaching tools that I've had the pleasure to use this
year is 

MindUP is a curriculum designed to help students understand how the brain
works and how to deal with stressful emotions. I like the lessons being 
connected to the brain because I think students really start to understand 
that brains cause us to freak out sometimes, it's just what they do. 
MindUP takes that knowledge on step further and gives students strategies 
that will help them deal with stressful situations. 

MindUP is grade-level appropriate. There are 3 different versions of the 
book, depending on the age you teach. There are so many actives that you
can do. Hands-on, pictures, graphic organizers, games, etc. MindUP really
makes their curriculum easy for teachers to read and teach.

I forgot one of the coolest things about MindUP, Goldie Hawn started it!
