Second STEP

For the 2nd year in a row, classroom teachers are using the Second Step social skills curriculum to directly teach students the competencies to strengthen their ability to learn, have empathy, manage emotions, and solve problems. This program promotes school success, connectedness, and a safe/respectful school climate by developing student’s self-regulations skills, social-emotional competencies, and school connectedness.

The focus for September/October 2019 is SKILLS FOR LEARNING. To be successful in school, students must be able to regulate their emotions, thoughts and behaviors. The skills required to do this are known as self-regulation skills. The Second Step program promotes development of self-regulation by teaching focusing attention, listening being assertive and using self-talk.

The documents below contain Key Concepts and Key Words that will be taught and used throughout the months of September and October. In addition, there are worksheets that can be downloaded and completed by families at home to reinforce the skills being learned.
