we@sel together for social emotional learning in october

Bonjour toute le monde,

Here we are in October already. The kids and staff seem to be all settled in. After the initial excitement of coming back, we are humming along nicely and looking forward to our famly barbecue Thursday, this week.

Included in this sel flyer are tips on homework, time management,working with teachers and community resources. Hopefully, you might find something that helps you and your elementary aged child. If you are to starting notice changes in their attitude about school, there is a good read below. End up by watching the cute video.

Everything is clickable and don't forget to browse the families and teen sites too. I hope you all have a nice October!

Don’t let problems fester—ask questions sooner rather than later.

Sometimes it’s not what you say but how you say it. If you want to effectively communicate with your child’s teacher, try these sentence starters.

  • “I’m concerned about my child’s...”

  • “Help me understand...”

  • “What was the goal of this assignment?”

  • “Have you considered...”

  • “I’ve noticed...”

  • “It seems as if she has a harder time doing __ when __.”

  • “Her IEP provides her with __. How does that look in the classroom?”

  • “How can I help?”
