Second Step

Social/Emotional Curriculum

Second Step Family Activation Codes

We want your child to be as successful as possible at school. Success in school is not just about academics. It is also about knowing how to learn and how to get along with others. We will be using the Second Step program in your child’s classroom to teach these critical skills. The Second Step program teaches skills in the following four areas:

1. Skills for Learning: Students gain skills to help themselves learn, including how to focus their attention, listen carefully, use self-talk to stay on task, and be assertive when asking for help with schoolwork.

2. Empathy: Students learn to identify and understand their own and others’ feelings. Students also learn how to take another’s perspective and how to show compassion.

3. Emotion Management: Students learn specific skills for calming down when experiencing strong feelings, such as anxiety or anger.

4. Problem Solving: Students learn a process for solving problems with others in a positive way.

Make sure to join secondstep.org with your child’s grade-level activation code. You will have access to watch videos about the Second Step program and get information about what your student is learning. You will create a user account and be able to add as many activation codes as is necessary for the grades in which you have a child.
