Daily Check-Ins for Student Support
I enjoyed reading this article and watching this amazing video from Edutopia. This video highlights what Fall-Hamilton Elementary School is doing in regards to providing support for students. Daily, students who need extra social and emotional support have a quick check-in with an adult at the start and end of each day. Enjoy this excellent school-wide strategy and see if and how you could implement this on your campus or in your district.
In addition to having other faculty members check-in with students, you could have community members, parents, and/or district leaders come check-in with the students. This could be done both face-to-face or digitally using a web-conferencing tool such as Google Hangouts, Skype, and/or (my favorite tool) Appear.in .
