Word of Week – Positive Intent
Definition: see the best in one another.
 


Helping ADHD Students
The world is quite different for ADHD kids than it is for you or I. They do something because it is there to be done. They don’t really think it through. If they paused and thought about it, they most likely would not do the bad behavior. ADD children behave impulsively, get in trouble, and then feel picked on.

We must utilize a prolonged approach to improving your child’s attention, concentration and self-control. Positive reinforcement is the basis for Conscious Discipline. We use total focus and I think you will be amazed at the success once you start implementing these techniques.

Spring Forward
Children can learn a great deal about Science in the spring. They can plant seeds, observe the birds and animals, talk about changes in weather, and name the different colors of flowers and leaves. This is a great time to go to the park and learn.

Tools for Triumph – If someone in class wins a game or does something well, congratulate that person appropriately.
