Build relationships by practicing community circles daily Repairing relationships when harm has occurred Doing things WITH students (and co-workers) instead of TO, NOT or FOR Ultimately, people will learn to make positive, productive, and effective choices in response to situations they

may encounter in the future after engaging in a restorative practice. Restorative Practice Community Circle Tips Proactive Circles Use community circles to proactively build relationships with students. There are circle guidelines to support the process and prompts such as getting acquainted on the back of the RP cards. Circles should reflect the age/grade of students (example: Kindergarten 5 to

10 minutes). Depending on the topic, circles can range from 5 -20 minutes. Impromptu is fine, but the best circle are one that are prepped in advance. Circle Guidelines Use the circle guidelines every time you have a community circle. The talking piece/stick is designed to create an equitable space for everyone to be heard. (There are posters and cards available that have the guidelines available for you)

Tone Set the tone for your community circles. Get JAZZED! Show excitement about a topic that is fun. Take on a caring or concerned, caring tone if the topic is sensitive or serious. Remember, students follow your lead so stay positive. Full Participation As the Circle Keeper, you should fully participate in the circle process. Sit in the circle With the student and not on the sidelines. Share/allow the students to get to know you too. Remember this quote Students dont care how much you know until they know how much you

care! When to Use Circles: Depending on the need to bring people together, circles will serve different purposes. Always guided by the same values and principles, circles may be called for: community building problem-solving reflecting introducing new students
