2nd Step Social Emotional Learning Tip of the Week

Students are learning PROBLEM SOLVING skills.  Lessons use the acronym S.T.E.P. to help students remember the skills.

FIRST STEP – calm down and say the problem without blaming others.
SECOND STEP – Think of safe solutions. Come up with safe and respectful ideas to solve the problem.

Notice when your child thinks of solutions to their problems.  Reinforce this with specific feedback!

Parent Script Tip:  “I see that you both wanted to play with the ball and you have thought of a solution to take turns playing with the ball. This is a safe and respectful solution.”
