Children begin developing emotional skills from birth. Emotional skills
include being able to recognize, express, understand and manage a wide
range of feelings. These skills are important for children’s developing
ability to interact successfully with others and their physical world.
Children who can understand and manage their feelings, stay calm and
enjoy their experiences, are more likely to develop a positive sense of
self and be confident and curious learners. Our Preschool 4 and Pre K friends have been exploring their emotions this week. Take a look!
Playing with chalk not only helps develop fine-motor skills such as grasping and holding, but also improves visual judgment and stimulates imagination. It's a good activity for our teachers to encourage.
Our friends in Toddler 4 are learning the classroom rules for the new school year. They talked about using softer inside voices while in the classroom and using big outside voices while outside. Take a look at their big, outside-voice faces! Hilarious!
Our friends in Pre K 2 were so excited today to learn all the names of the kids in their class. Their teachers put together a neat table top activity, in which they had to guess the first letter of their friends' names. What a cool way to combine beginning letter sounds and learn your friends name!
