The Social Skill for January is:

How to Get Along:

1.  Show concern for others.

2.  Remember everyone deserves respect.

3.  Apologize when you need to.

We have reviewed and practiced these steps at school, and we hope that you will also review and reinforce them at home.  

The ability to get along with others, oftentimes, determines how likely it is that a person will succeed in their chosen endeavors.  With this in mind, please discuss with your students the importance of getting along with others.  Watch for your child to use these steps and reinforce or compliment them when they do so correctly.  When correct behavior is reinforced, it is more likely to be repeated.
