Description: Target Audience: School Staff, Behavior Support Staff, Teachers
Join us to learn strategies for incorporating humor, fun, connection, and energy into in-person and online sessions with students. The session includes an exploration of the role of icebreakers, brain breaks, and student engagers in building relationships, promoting social-emotional awareness, and implementing trauma-informed practices. Teachers and school staff can use these activities as part of lesson plans, advisory sessions, and circle processes. All activities can be tailored to a variety of ages, interests, and abilities.
