This workshop will focus on how self regulation develops in the early years and how we can support our students to develop these critical life skills. We will discuss the theory and foundation for self regulation along with the latest research in this area. We will learn how to set measurable goals around self regulation. The session will then move towards games and activities that you can use to facilitate the development of these skills early in the elementary years. Aspects from the Zones of Regulation and We Thinkers Social Thinking Curriculum will be incorporated into the day.
