Summit Learning Convening
Weekly Parent Connect
As we near spring, which can be a challenging time for students and parents, it is important that you focus on the skill of Composure and remember to be a S.T.A.R.
Anytime a child is not doing what you would like them to do – focus on these steps:
Noticing: Noticing connects you with the child. Paint a picture of what you see with your words –i.e. LaKesia, you are on the chair.
Breathe: with the child. Be a S.T.A.R.
Teach: Now that you are connected and calm, tell the child what you want them to do. “LaKesia, my job is to keep you safe and what is your job?” Child, “Help keep it safe.” “You’re right. To stay safe in our class/home you have a choice. You can step down with your right foot or your left foot? Which do you choose? You choose your right foot and now you’re sitting!”
*This discussion is based on Becky Bailey’s book: Managing Emotional Mayhem and adapted from Larry Slocum’s School Family Minute.
