Today’s Social Skills Lesson

Today, your child was presented a social skills class coordinated by our counseling team.

We began with a review of our school wide theme of “GRRR”: Granite Grizzlies are Responsible, Respectful and Ready to learn! The social skills classes each month will provide the skills to “GRRR”!

  • We participated in a mindfulness breathing and relaxing exercise.
  • We also reviewed “If you don’t show it, they won’t know it!”
  • We discussed Body Basics- “FEVER”:
    • Face the person, Eye contact, Voice, Expression and the need to Relax.
  • We discussed personal space: Hula Hoop Space
  • We learned what Active Listening is and why it is so important.
  • We discussed strategies to start conversations and to join into a group.

Please discuss with your child what he/she has learned from this lesson. It can provide a wonderful form of reinforcement of essential interpersonal skills.
