Instructional Ideas

  • Invite the school counselors to be part of the lesson—ask them to lead an age-appropriate discussion about feelings in a way that makes everyone feel safe and welcome to share
  • Take brain-breaks as needed—when class members need to refresh their attention span, sing a song from your grade level's lessons 
  • Create anchor charts with the lessons' sentence frames—display charts for learners to reference while they speak
