Leander ISD Counseling Services
Second Step Home Link-September 2018
Second Step Overview
The Second Step program increases kids’ school success and decreases problem behaviors by teaching them skills for learning—such as paying attention, listening, and sitting still—as well as how to manage their emotions, solve problems, and make friends. All these skills help kids do better in school and in life.
Second Step lessons include fun Brain Builder games, opportunities to practice skills, puppets, and songs.
We want your child to be as successful as possible at school. Success in school is not just about reading and math. It is also about knowing how to learn and how to get along with others. We will be using the Second Step program in your child’s classroom to teach these critical skills.
The Second Step program teaches skills in the following four areas:
1. Skills for Learning
3. Emotion Management
4. Problem Solving
