Social and Emotional Development

Families,

We are working on social and emotional development in the classroom. Talk to you children at home about how they are feeling and use such words as angry, embarrassed, jealous and excited. The students are working hard on interacting with other students and solving their own problems. Go over colors and shapes with your child. We are doing color and shape bingo in the class. Introduction of letters will begin in January.

Daily Activities

Read a book or tell a story to your child.

Count steps, windows, spoons, forks, cars in the street, etc.

Have your child write their name.

Talk to your child about his/her feelings.

Model good behavior.

Spend some time alone with your child.

To reinforce letter recognition and writing skills have your child use play-doh to form letters. Other options are to write with shaving cream and sand.
