A Leader's Guide to The Adding Assets Series for Kids

The Developmental Assets (40 Assets) outline the relationships, personal qualities, and opportunities kids need to thrive.This comprehensive, easy-to-use Developmental Asset-building curriculum for grades 3-6 includes 42 sessions: one for each of the 40 assets, plus introductory and concluding sessions. Each session includes activities, discussion prompts, and a handout to bring home to parents and other family adults.

For schools, districts, and states that have implemented standards-based education, a detailed chart shows how each session correlates with specific standards in the areas of character education, health, social studies, social and emotional learning, and language arts.

The digital content features all of the reproducible forms from the book and an additional 40 pages of student handouts used in the sessions.
