Here are some interesting points presented in a Stanford University report:
Stanford researchers see trouble ahead for kindergarten students with low self-regulation unless parents and teachers help.
Children’s self-regulation skills may affect the course of children’s academic trajectories in elementary school.
Teachers can learn to provide a better classroom environment for all students.
Teachers should get professional development opportunities to help them create a non-reactive, low-conflict classroom environment.
Parents can help students improve self-regulation.
By implementing resources that help students self-regulate educators may be assuring a child’s success with learning.
I Can Do That! Kids – www.icandothatkids.com – offers “child-friendly” Action Stars for teaching children HOW to work at difficult tasks. They are grasped easily by kindergarteners who see them as “helpers” when faced with a challenging task. Young children begin to self-regulate their responses to learning: “I need to try again!” and develop essential learning traits.
