East Ridge Keeps Playing

This week's game is Superstar. The SEL connection is Positive Language – Using words that are kind, supportive, and encouraging. This week’s brain break is Freeze Dance. Teachers may be using these with classes. We are also using some of these games during Bridge Weeks and will use some at recess when students return to school! Thank you, PTA, for this resource!




Self-reflection is the habit of deliberately paying attention to your own thoughts, emotions, decisions, and behaviors. Here's a typical example: ... We periodically reflect back on an event and how we handled it in hopes that we learn something from it and make better decisions in the future.
