Second Step is based on research that connects social-emotional competence and self-regulation skills to success in school and life.
Each grade level features developmentally appropriate ways for students to learn core social-emotional skills such as empathy, emotion management, and problem solving. Students will also learn skills for learning that address self-regulation and executive function skills.
These foundational social-emotional skills also contribute to bullying prevention and positive school behavior systems. Second Step lessons are paired with research based lessons in bullying and substance abuse prevention where students learn specific skills.
If you would like to view Second Step curriculum at your child's school please contact your school counselor or the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District Student Services Department at (253) 891-6062.
