Welcome back to the reason you became an educator.

FISH! for Schools will help you build a great school culture—or strengthen the great culture you already have.

FISH! For Schools is a family of products that blend the four practices of The FISH! Philosophy (Be There, Play, Make Their Day and Choose Your Attitude) with research and best practices in social and emotional learning, character education, classroom management and human behavior.

The result? Classrooms where it’s cool to be respectful, where students are fully present for learning and for each other, where everyone has fun in a way that adds to the excitement of learning rather than taking away from it.

There are 3 parts to FISH for Schools program, one for educators and two for use with students.

Guided Journey - For educators
Starter Kit - For everyone!
Classroom Experience - For use with students (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, or 9-12)

It will help you:

  • Create even more effective relationships with students that inspire them to want to be their best.
  • Develop clear expectations that are shared and owned by everyone in the classroom.
  • Build a trusting environment in which everyone feels emotionally safe and ready to learn.
  • Guide students to examine their behavior when it doesn’t work and to take responsibility for more successful choices.
