  • Create Behavioural expectations that are owned by everyone in the class.
  • Live The FISH! Philosophy in a way that meets your goals.
  • Build a caring community where everyone feels safe and ready to learn.
  • Develop character, empathy and personal responsibility.

  • Grade K-2
  • Grade 3-5

k-2The Grades 3-5 Classroom Experience is designed to let students help transform their class culture by reinforcing positive behavior support and uses inquiry-based methods. FISH! For Schools will help your students become better learners and citizens. With students growing independence and the ability to observe the world, the activities and extensions help learners hypothesize ways to improve the school experience with others—and carry out original experiments to test their hypotheses—helping to build self confidence and learning about the impact they can have on their own environment.

Choose from expanded activities, lessons and extensions to help impart the practices of The FISH! Philosophy—Be There, Play, Make Their Day and Choose Your Attitude. This was designed to take advantage of the fact that students in this age group are trying to fit in with peers and many group activities designed to solve problems that may exist in the school culture.
