Social Curriculum

We believe the social competency of children is strongly tied to both social and academic success and the development of higher-level thinking skills. In second grade, we capitalize on the natural social interactions between students each day. We help facilitate constructive problem solving, conflict resolution and peace making with peers all in an effort to develop personal and social responsibility. The following resources are incorporated into our social curriculum:

Bully Proof, Nan Stein
Quit It, Merle Froschl, Barbara Sprung, Nancy Mullin-Rindler
Open Circle Curriculum:  Social Competency Program, The Stone Center, Wellesley College
Responsive Classroom Curriculum, The Northeast Foundation for Children
