Hi Suder Students and Families,
I hope you are doing well! I wanted to share a few more resources that may come in handy while we are all hunkered down. First up is a chart of 30 small practices you can do at home for your emotional heath. Try to do one or two each day!
Mission Propelle is a yoga-based empowerment program for elementary aged children that Suder has partnered with in the past. While school is out, they are offering daily yoga classes on their YouTube channel. Practicing yoga has multiple benefits, both physical and mental. Follow along with them here:
Below are some printable worksheets focused on social-emotional health:
You can also take "virtual field trips" to a number of museums and places of interest all over the world! This website has a good list of resources all linked in one spot: www.iflscience.com/editors-blog/going-stir-crazy-in-self-isolation-travel-the-world-from-your-couch-with-these-virtual-field-trips/
Staying at home means more time with siblings, which could cause some friction! Check out this free online resource:
For more than 30 years, Laurie Kramer, a professor of applied psychology at Northeastern University in Boston, has studied sibling conflict. She and her co-researchers are distilling much of what she’s learned into a new program called More Fun With Sisters And Brothers, which is for parents of 4- to 8-year-old children who want to help those kids build positive relationships.
Families who are interested can register for the online program, which includes four lessons, for free. The program is focused on that age range because kids are developmentally capable of things like empathy, but their behaviors aren’t yet set in stone.

Hope some of these resources help to stay busy during this break! Please continue to check back here, as I will be adding resources as I find them. Stay well!
