This can be common conversation between parents and children after the school day. The 'Nothing' response can be a frustrating one for parents and teachers alike. 

'The Nothing Poem' is a little poem I used to share with parents at the beginning of the school year. I also displayed it on the Parent's Board to serve as a little reminder of how much 'Nothing' can actually mean!

You can download a copy of the 'Nothing' poem in poster format here.

After a busy day at school, sometimes the children just need a little time to decompress. The 5 Step Check-In is a nice little way to approach the conversation about the school day in a way that enables the children to think, share and describe. Here's a screengrab of an example of the 5 Step Check-in I shared during my takeover on The Family Edit last week. 

Watch my full take over from their Back To School series here where I share FIVE important tips for returning to school.
