Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this research was to determine the effects of a self-monitoring system on the social-emotional behaviors of children in a mixed-age early childhood classroom. The study took place over the course of six weeks at a public Montessori school with twelve participants ranging from ages 4 to 7. Data was collected using a teacher questionnaire, observation tallies, teacher notes, and student feedback. Findings indicated that disruptive behaviors increased and children’s ability to communicate their emotions and recognize emotions in others only slightly increased. Although the results displayed minimal changes in students' ability to self-regulate, some children appeared to become more aware of their feelings and utilized effective strategies for sharing how they felt and improving their mood. Further research might focus on a smaller group of children that need assistance with self-regulation or include an easier method of obtaining student feedback.

Abstract/Notes: To glide effortlessly across any body of water, regardless of conditions, the sailor studies the movement, speed, and directional changes of the wind. After much practice, the connection to the wind becomes a part of the sailor's environment; it becomes second nature. A child sailing by himself or with a crew of peers in a large lake is just one example of children learning to connect with their environment through risk taking.
