Chalk Talk: Helping Shy Students Adjust to the Classroom
Many kids are outgoing and love school, but sometimes school can be intimidating and difficult for more shy students. Thankfully, there are things that can be done to help transition a shy child into school. Since each year will typically present at least a partially new environment, talk through the changes that will be occurring with your student. If possible, let your student visit the classroom(s) that he or she will be studying in before they have to arrive on the chaotic first day of school. If possible, letting him meet his new teacher and some of his future classmates can help as well. Teach your student to handle criticism well. Help them to understand that they are valuable and valued and that shyness doesn’t have to be a weakness. Be supportive throughout times of transition into a new school, classroom, or schedule and provide safe environments and moments for your student to talk to you about what is going on. Support and affirm him or her and guide them as difficulties arise, utilizing school resources as well as information from your student’s teacher.
