Supporting families and students with social emotional learning at home is on our minds at Central Schools. Here are some positive strategies that families can use together. Attached please find great family resources for PAX at home; Recipe Cards for families:
  • PAX Breaks give families strategies to help when tensions are running high at home
  • PAX Mystery Motivators help families with strategies for setting boundaries at home and motivating their child to follow the rules of the home.
  • PAX Shared Vision are strategies that help children who aren’t on the same page as adults about expectations. This can lead to frustration and arguments. Use a Shared Vision to make expectations clear and prevent conflict.
The PAX Good Behavior Game is a powerful evidence-based practice, consisting of proven instructional and behavioral health strategies used daily by teachers and students in the classroom. This universal preventive approach not only improves classroom behavior and academics, but also provides a lifetime of benefits for every child by improving self-regulation and co-regulation with peers. You will be able to use the techniques and video links below in the month of April, as we continue student engagement while school buildings are closed.
