Classroom Respectful Signage & Let's Chat Conversation Cards
Thanks to our Respectful Signage, everyone’s using the same positive language! Each module comes with a removable vinyl sign to post in help emphasize the message in common areas and classrooms. The emojis and texting speech bubbles catch kids’ eyes and reinforce the slogans for systemic SEL throughout your school or camp.
Use this classroom tool to your advantage!
The Respectful reminder signs allow you to address the behavior and not the student directly — keeping everyone accountable and on task.
You get back to "teaching time" more quickly.
The Let’s Chat Conversation Cards are a hallmark of our program. These exploratory questions help students break the ice and discuss the module theme in small groups.
We can’t wait to see what your students come up with!
We’ve written hundreds of research-based, unique activities with objectives, discussion guidance, and detailed suggestions on how to expand the lessons. Each diverse and immersive activity explores a different dimension of the module’s theme, pulls out a different meaning of the lessons they teach and gives your students real world applications to take outside of the classroom.
Our Cast of Characters and Ambassador RILEY WAYS
Riley Ways and a lively cast of animated, multicultural characters from all walks of life host the online modules. As your teaching assistants, they entertain as they guide students through our thought-provoking activities. These relatable “friends” grow in age with your students as they progress through the program.
Gamification and Certificates
Kids love to play games and earn recognition for their hard work.
Your students' ears will perk up once they see the great prizes they can win when they abide by the rules and have a lot of fun doing it! From the "Super Human" Cape they can wear for being "Super Respectful" to individualized award certificates, kids can be celebrated for their kind behaviors.
Parent Resources & RW Forums
Parents are intimately involved in every module through “Respectful Ways Home Connects”. These printouts, translated in English and Spanish, detail what their students are learning and offer ways to further the discussion. Other ways to get involved in the SEL conversation: Use our Educator and Parent Discussion Groups on Facebook to collaborate, share classroom stories, and find better ways to engage your students.
