implements Becky Bailey’s “Conscious Discipline” as our classroom management
and social/emotional education program.
for the Month: It’s my job to keep you
safe. Your job is to help keep it that
Place: the safe place provides the
opportunity for children to remove themselves from the group in order to become
calm, regain composure, and maintain control.
When upset, angry or frustrated, children come to the Safe Place in
order to be helpful and not hurtful to themselves and others. It is the keystone to our anger management
program. The brain works optimally when
it feels “safe”. Four ways to calm the
brain are: STAR – smile, take a deep breath and relax; drain, balloon, and
pretzel. The children will be learning
these techniques in the classroom. When
children are out of control, they need routine which creates safety. When children are uncooperative, they need
connection which creates willingness.
Conscious Discipline is taught during Parent Association meetings. By attending, the school and home can be on
the same page when disciplining children.
I wish you well.
