CLASSROOM LESSONS (R.E.A.C.H.):

Once every day six day rotation, I will teach a lesson in your child's classroom in one of the following areas, Responsibility, Emotions, Academic Success, careers, Character Education, and Healthy Choices otherwise known as "R.E.A.C.H. Class" in your child's words.  Each lesson is 25 minutes in length and will focus on personal/social, academic, and careers.  I visit each classroom approx. 15 times per school year.  You will likely see handouts come home with your child.  These are meant for families to transfer the learning at school to home.  These are not "assignments" unless otherwise indicated and otherwise do not need to be returned to school. A core curriculum used in R.E.A.C.H. class is an evidence based curriculum called "Second Step". It promotes success in school beyond reading and math by helping children know how to learn and how to get along with others. The critical skills it teaches includes:

Skills for Learning: Students gain skills to help themselves learn, including how to focus their attention, listen carefully,  use self-talk to stay on task, and be assertive when asking for help with school work.

Empathy: Students learn to identify and understand their own and others’ feelings. Students also learn hoe to take another’s perspective and how to show compassion.

Emotion Management: Students learn specific skills for calming down when experiencing strong feelings such as anxiety or anger.

Problem Solving: Students learn a process for problem solving with others in a positive way.

Your child will need your help! Second Step has created  Home Links. Home Links will come home with your child. They are simple, fun activities for you and your child to complete together, however, these are not required to come back to school.
