Learning and Sharing


on February 2, 2014




On February 5th,  Mrs. Rairden and I are making a presentation to a group of teachers and para-professionals who work with young children with special needs.  The subject of our presentation is The ABC’s of Self-Regulation:  Teaching social thinking through stories, songs, and play.  Self-regulation skills, such as impulse control, managing feelings, perspective taking, flexible problem-solving, and task persistence, are viewed by kindergarten teachers, as being  more essential to academic success than counting and letter recognition.





We will talk about why we use yoga to help children self-regulate.  We will show participants how we use video modeling, books, songs, and play to help young children think social.

Mrs. Rairden and I love to share what works for us and for the students we serve.

My Best,

    • Hi Karen, thanks for your comment and interest ing the presentation. We did not tape it (what a great idea to share on youtube). Do you have a particular interest in self-regulation and social thinking?
