Main Street School Celebrates Students at Open Circle Lunches

By Meredith Shaw
Open Circle Trainer & Coach 
How do we guide children to carry over Open Circle skills outside of the classroom to areas where they are most in need -- the cafeteria, playground, and hallways? New Hampshire's Main Street School, a Pre-K to Grade 2 elementary school nestled in downtown Exeter, has found a way to help increase students' use of Open Circle skills.

By Peg Sawyer
Open Circle Trainer & Coach

Shifting alliances - overwhelming emotions - challenging life-circumstances - comforting friendships - self-discovery - acts of courage: These are some of the themes in this list -- books that are worth spending time with this summer.
