Self Regulation CI

Outcome

This experience for us has been a journey. Along the way we learned that we were already doing many of the strategies we had set out to do without actually labelling them for the students. By giving them a name and explaining the purpose to the children gave them more ownership of their own learning and behaviour. We are still struggling with some of the students in our classes, however, we have come to realize that it is alright to feel this way. Each child learns in his/her own way and his/her own time. We have given them the tools for good friendship and citizenship skills. We will continue to build on our students learning going forward.
