This week we talked about our feelings. We read the book Glad Monster, Sad Monster and students acted out what they are feeling using monster masks. During centers we created our own monster mask to represent how we are feeling using loose parts that parents donated.
Students also brought in their green choices/red choices activity they did at home with their family. They talked about what green choices and red choices they can make at home and in school.
Our Pre-k friends are working hard to becoming more independent and responsible for their needs. Look at them hard at work!
Here are some things parents can do to foster responsibility and independence in their children :
Let your children do things for themselves.
Encourage your children to make decisions.
Help and encourage your children to solve their own problems
Be there to provide support, when needed.
Give your children responsibilities.
