Caring Connections for Social, Emotional, Behavioral Health

A short pep talk from Kid Superintendent

From the SEBH Return-to-Learn Toolkit: Establishing Routines & Relationships 
  1. Maintaining and communicating predictable routines helps students to maintain a sense of psychological safety. 

  2. Do not assume that students understand your routine is changing due to current events.

  3. Taking the time to explain the changes and providing a predictable agenda will reduce student stress.

The first step in setting up any classroom is to define expected behaviors, which can be done most effectively through a behavior teaching matrix.
