2nd Step Social Emotional Learning Tip of the Week

Kinder-1st and grades 4-5th

Continue to work with your children to hone self-management skills by managing their emotions.  Remind students to 1) Stop 2) Name their feelings and 3) Calm Down.

Calm Down Strategy:  Using positive self –talk.  What we say to ourselves can change the way we feel. If we say positive or good things to ourselves, we are likely to feel better. 

  • “I can do it”
  • “I can try again”
  • “If I don’t understand, I can ask for help”

Reinforce this at home by noticing when your student calms down and asking what positive self talk they used to calm down.

Parent Script: “Jordana, I saw you looking frustrated as you wrote your numbers but then you calmed down. What did you say to yourself to calm down?”

Special 2nd step lesson for 2nd-3rd graders this week on how they have power

  • to stand up to bullying
  • to support others by showing acceptance
  • to help others feel included. 

You can implement this at home by noticing when students are inclusive of others. 

Parent Script:  “Tad, I noticed you invited Zaida to join your group when you saw she was left out. That was a kind and respectful thing to do.”
