Mr. Urban, our school Guidance Counselor, visits our classroom on Tuesday mornings! Back in September he sent a note home to explain a little about what he'd be doing in kindergarten. If you click here you can look at a more detailed Scope and Sequence for the Second Step program in kindergarten. I do not attend Specials (Art, Music, etc.) with the students but I do participate in Guidance so that I can use the same language and apply the skills of the program e.g. focusing attention, using self talk, being assertive etc. throughout our day. Today was our first day of Unit 2, below you can see a few students demonstrating sad.
If you want to learn more about Second Step or using these skills at home please contact me or Mr. Urban!
