Learning Readiness

As teachers begin the school year, they are preparing classrooms and schedules that will introduce students to the routines of the school day. These routines will provide the consistency needed for children to feel safe and calm which promotes learning. When children feel unsafe, their brains are challenged to learn. Teachers can make a significant impact in helping children feel safe. Conveying a sense of calm is a first step. Go through your own check list in reaching that state of calm. Consider a few of these questions: Have I had enough sleep? Have I taken time for myself? Have I used forms of stress management?
When children observe an adult who can self-regulate, that promotes a sense of safety in the classroom. Then children are better able to learn.
