One of our new initiatives for this school year is the implementation of Guidance Corners in every classroom. These will be areas designated for calming activities, mindfulness techniques, and emotional regulation strategies that students can use throughout the day. Certain Guidance Classes throughout the year will give students the chance to make crafts and design activities that will be featured in their Guidance Corners — whether it’s filling a box with soothing toys and books that they choose themselves, or the whole class creating a Choice Wheel to use when they need to take a break. This activity will be launched in the first week of September.
This month, our Guidance Classes will be focused on Kindness and Anti-Bullying. Please check the blog again soon for photos and updates!
