Self-regulation is the theme for our classroom lessons in January. I Students need to develop emotional, behavioral, and cognitive self-regulation. One research based intervention for self-regulation is Conscious Discipline that includes a 5 step model, several breathing techniques that are fun and engaging for young students. I teach the breathing techniques to all kindergarten and first grade students. The Shubert series of books that I use in a small group with students who need more work on these critical life skills.
