Join the Banyan Buddies, a group of friendly monster and kid pals, as they travel the universe in their SEL Spaceship. Just as their rocket needs fuel, the Banyan Buddies need to make sure their own brain “engines” are in tip-top shape. Monitoring their emotions is very important so that they don’t want to feel too low or stuck in overdrive. With the help of their Moody Meter, the Banyan Buddies work with students to learn to identify their emotions and self-regulate. This six-part series invites student participants to join the Banyan Buddies and embark on an SEL journey together!Episode 2: Running On Empty

Farmdale, NY

Banyan Global Learning is a virtual education content provider with a global network of innovative educators. Our live virtual programs connect learners to undiscovered places, new people and fresh ideas

Our programs are taught LIVE and on location (time zone permitting) with TWO teachers — one driving the lesson progression and the other engaging from the field. These dynamic programs are unlike any educational program you have experienced. 

We have created a suite of virtual programs to reach all levels of learners in three main content areas: Social and Emotional Learning, Digital Citizenship, and Global Citizenship.

We love designing new programs, so if we don't currently have what you're looking for, just ask.

Banyan Global Learning believes in the power of live video to bridge cultural divides, expand empathetic thinking and prepare our students to navigate real life. We are mission-driven to create authentic connections that fulfill the needs of students and teachers alike.

Program Details


While each SEL program follows a format, each lesson is responsive to the individual audience. You will get to know your teacher and puppet friend while also sharing many things about yourself either through a class webcam or the chat box.

Throughout, students will learn and use the moody meter to describe how they feel and help solve various problems.

Each trip is highly interactive and can often go different directions based on what the audience says and asks! Interaction, questions and answers happen throughout the program.


Participants will identify the Moody Meter as a vehicle to identifying one's own feelings and the feelings of others.
Participants will recognize good choices and the development of a growth mindset and reachable goals as essential components of optimism.
Participants will extend their learning into their real lives by connecting with their families and communities.
