The Social Skill for February is:

   How to Listen

1.  Look at the person

2.  Think about their words

3.  Wait for them to finish

4.  Say what you want about the topic

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

   Learning how to listen is very important to succeed in school and in relationships with others.  Please discuss with your students the importance of listening to others.  Watch for your child to use these steps and reinforce or compliment when they do it correctly.  When correct behavior is reinforced, it is more likely to be repeated.
