Let’s finish strong and have 100% of students completed their homework!  Don’t forget to watch, practice and leave a comment.  When you leave a comment on this post, you can tell us something you noticed, something you are proud of or something you are still struggling with.  Don’t forget to leave a comment so we know that you completed your homework.

Second Step

We have now gone through all of the lessons in our Second Step program.  Next week we will be reviewing the skills we have learned so far.  Students will be given the opportunity to reflect on their individual growth and learning.  This will help them retain and apply the concepts and skills learned.  The more students review and practice, the stronger their skills become.

Some important concepts we have learned this year: Empathy, focused listening, STEP, consequences, choices, belly breathing, positive self talk, name your feeling, and being assertive.  Please feel free to ask your child about these concepts and how they can use them at school and home.
