Teaching Tip Of The Month:

Getting Back In The School Groove After A Break

-Create a daily schedule, post it in your learning space, and review it with your student daily. Knowing what to expect helps the learning process.

-Hit the ground running but remember to incorporate many breaks the first few days.

-Create, post, and review learning expectations (rules for school time).

-Take control and be sure you are managing behavior. If you start letting your child get away with bad behavior or avoiding a learning task, it will be harder to get him or her back on track later. Be supportive, motivating, and gently firm from the beginning.

-Make sure your learning space is organized.

-Review lessons the day before you teach them so you are prepared. This gives you confidence as a Learning Coach and also helps maintain a great learning flow for the day.

-Remember PE!  Get those bodies moving!  This increases brain flow and learning.

-Keep a positive attitude and find ways to compliment and congratulate successes.

-Attend your Homeroom Class Connects.

-Get lots of sleep and eat right.

-Remember you are not alone! Contact Ms. Colbert if you have any problems.
