Second Step Program
The Second Step Program is about knowing how to learn and how to get along with others. Throughout the year, you can go on the Home Links that go with several of the Second Step lessons. They are simple, fun activities for you and your child to complete together. They are a great way for you to understand what your child is learning and for your child to show you what he or she knows. We are currently on Lesson 1 and it focuses on Empathy and Respect. Having respect and empathy helps you get along with others. See the downloads section for the optional homework lessons
