From our January 2020 workshop in Stockton, CA

Stockton Unified School District has partnered with RedRover to bring social and emotional learning to students and educators throughout the city. In seeking effective ways to connect with their students, Stockton educators have found that the RedRover Readers program provides just that: a new channel to connect through safe and welcoming discussions about animals, helping kids open up and share their experience. See what some Stockton educators have said about the RedRover Readers training workshop:

  • “Now I understand it. As educators, we can also be more aware of how we teach so we can show the kids how to be more in tune with themselves and others [including animals] around them.” – RedRover Readers trained teacher, December 2019
  • “This training taught me to be aware of the judgment or leading to a certain thought I may be giving students.”- RedRover Readers trained teacher, December 2019
  • “It made me conscious of how I present new material to my kids. Also, how I can create a non-judgmental environment to make my kids feel safe to share their feelings and thoughts.”-RedRover Readers trained teacher, December 2019
  • “I loved the positivity and openness.”-RedRover Readers trained teacher, January 2020
  • “I loved engaging and working with my site to come up with follow-up questions.” -RedRover Readers trained teacher, December 2019
  • “I enjoy the way we learn how to present the books to our kids. Always good to get new ways to read to our kids.”-RedRover Readers trained teacher, December 2019
  • “I enjoyed learning how to respond to difficult questions. [This workshop] helped with preparing on how to respond.” – RedRover Readers trained teacher, December 2019
