Social-emotional development and academic success are much more related than many people think. We often hear talk about the academic curriculum or the social-emotional approach to early education as if these are two separate things. Research tells us that for children to be successful in school, they must be mentally healthy and they must have good interpersonal skills. Emotional development skills include the ability to regulate behavior, to manage feelings, to feel competent in completing tasks, and confident in trying new things.
To help boost these invaluable skills among preschoolers, each episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood consists of two engaging stories that center on a common early learning theme with catchy, musical strategies that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and adults will both sing – and use! – together in their daily lives.
Going back to school and/or starting school elicit a variety of concerns in young children.

Engage students with Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, a PBS KIDS series based on the Ordinary People Change the World books by Brad Meltzer and Christopher Eliopoulos. The show follows the adventures of Xavier Riddle, his sister Yadina, and their friend Brad as they travel back in time to meet real life historical figures when they were kids.
Use these video clips, teaching tips, and historical figure biosketches to support students’ social-emotional, literacy, and social studies skills.
Learn more about the series and find full episodes, digital games, and home activities at the Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum website.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As a supplemental resource, this collection is not designed to facilitate dialogue on the merits or virtue of all of a historical figure’s actions and behaviors. The focus is on specific positive behaviors the person demonstrated, rather than all aspects of who they were/are.
Decisions about how and when to engage students in these important conversations is at the discretion of teachers, families, and school administrators at the local level. Select the biosketches that fit best with your classroom curricula and learning objectives.
