2021 Early Years Conference has ended
The 18th Annual Early Years Conference focus is on understanding the approach to a Multi Tiered System of Support. Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) is a framework that promotes equity and access by engaging “ALL” through a tiered approach that uses differentiation of services and supports. “All means ALL”.

10 Ways to Decrease Stress in Your Classroom

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

This training will provide information, activity ideas and tools to help ease the worries and anxieties of children in the classroom. In accordance with the MTSS processes, this workshop will challenge the attendees to change the way in which they have traditionally worked to support the social/emotional needs of students in their classroom. Participants will be able to define various sources of stress, recognize symptoms and learn techniques and activities that can be applied to help children cope with stress or alleviate it altogether. They will also be able to identify the ten strengths to build resiliency in young children. Teachers may benefit personally by using these techniques throughout the day to manage their own stress, which will increase their ability to alleviate the behavioral concerns before they occur in their classroom.
