Student success with less stress in minutes a day
but, there’s a catch…it’s much harder to shine on your own. Find your team. Shine brighter together.
We’ve created easy-to-implement therapy based routines that calm, focus, and improve academics without adding to your already full plate. But please, don’t go it alone. Just like a good meal, these activities are meant to be shared. Open your door. Invite your support staff in. Problem solve together. Celebrate the wins.
A little skeptical that collaboration can be effective and dare we say, fun? Let’s summarize the most reported reasons why collaboration doesn’t work:
time or lack thereof
money and resources
special education and general education divide
limited agreement on effective strategies
busy agendas with no priority given to collaboration
Yet teachers and support staff using S’cool Moves frequently wrote us to share insights that challenged these commonly reported barriers. Curious, we conducted extensive research with school-based teams to find out how they overcame barriers and created successful partnerships. We mined the data for nuggets of gold and designed our training program based on the themes we uncovered.
Nine simple ways to enhance collaboration immediately
Learn quick minute routines that are used daily by the entire staff and students to supercharge learning.
Integrate therapy strategies seamlessly with academic skills so no time is taken away from teaching.
Deliver services in the classroom so there are more hands on deck and more students getting help.
Encourage students to lead routines as soon as possible so all children become leaders in the class.
Send home visuals of routines and invite family members to use the activities together.
Teach minute lessons during staff meetings so everyone learns new routines at least once a month.
Post routines on bulletin boards around the campus for easy reference throughout the day.
Adopt a school culture where staff open their doors, invite one another in, and share skill sets.
Implement a universal framework of theory, research, and tiered intervention that gets results.
“Teachers, students, support staff, and administration professionals have loved using this curriculum and are seeing the difference that it’s making in the classrooms! I love having something tangible and already beautifully put together to share with teachers. I feel like I am being so much more effective as an occupational therapist in schools. Thank you!” Tiffany Clark, OTR/L
“Thank you for giving us such a successful day. We haven’t had people so excited about anything for quite some time.” Peggy Canale, Teacher
