A brilliant book that will be welcomed by all early years practitioners who want a more effective way of addressing behaviour.
Includes 13 sessions
Thinking and behaving restoratively does not come naturally to all kids. Restorative Practice is a way of thinking about people and events and it is a frame of reference that we can teach to young people.
What is the result? Calmer more peaceful and more productive classrooms and playgrounds. Evidence shows that schools that actively teach Restorative Thinking and Behaviour to students report less bullying behaviour; less anxious kids; less anxious parents and happier teachers.
The Grab and Go Circle Time Kit for Teaching Restorative Behaviour is unique. We have harnessed the Circle Time pedagogy to create thirteen wonderful sessions to teach young students how to think and behave restoratively. Packed with wonderful illustrated stories and resources for use in the sessions busy teachers can literally pick up this manual and run with it!
