The 4th graders  have been practicing self- control strategies throughout this year to self regulate through their own learning process! What this means is that student can self evaluate what is and what is not a good choice and think before they act!  This practice is highly proven for the achievement toward better test scores and the development of interpersonal skills and relationships.
