Davis Staff Friday Flyer
Deep in the Heart of Davis
Three of my takeaways:
1. We need to teach kids to be emotionally literate. I know some of you are already doing this through colors or emojis. Brene Brown has identified 30 that she believes all students need to be able to articulate. You can find these with a quick Google search.
2. Teach Kids cognitive regulation skills. Various breathing exercises (box or smelling flower/blowing out candles or laying down and putting something on your stomach and focus on it moving up and down) These techniques help not only with behavior management but with higher academic success.
3. 30-90-10 RULE: Every 30 minutes-students need to move at least 90 seconds-at least 10 feet from their original spot....And don't leave out the 10 feet part.
