Loneliness and social isolation have sadly become the hallmarks of the COVID Crisis. The impacts have been seen everywhere, most notably in the home. According to a national poll conducted by the Mott Children’s Hospital, 3 in 4 parents say this experience has negatively affected their children’s social interactions.
The foundation for success in every great classroom is built upon strong relationships; relationships with the teacher, relationships with and between students, and relationships within one’s self. Starting the 2021-22 school year off with routines and procedures in place to develop strong connections in the classroom is critical for student and staff success.
Participants in this session will:
Discover tips, tools and techniques to create enduring relationships beginning on day one of the school year.
Understand the importance of intentionally creating relationship routines and rituals that forge relationships with and between students.
Leave with a Classroom Relationship Plan that will serve as a blueprint for relational success to be used throughout the school year.
