What's SPECIAL this week?

*We hope you had a great 4 day weekend and celebrated MLK day!
*This week we are focusing on hibernating animals in the wintertime. Ask you child what they've learned about hibernation!
*Chapel is on Friday.


*Please remember to dress your children for the weather outside! We go outside if it's above 32 degrees! Hats, gloves, scarves, and boots (if there's snow) are super helpful!

Family Partnerships

*Please keep reinforcing correct letter writing formations and practice daily with your kids! The more they practice, the better they'll become. If they think it's "work", try forming letters in salt, shaving cream, or even pudding!
*Have your child teach you "We're Going On a Bear Hunt" dramatic poem. They will love going through the story with you!!

Fruit of the Spirit: Kindness

Kindness isn’t taught, it’s learned. In order to be kind, you have to experience it at home, and most of that experience is learning it by example.

Here are four ways to bridge the kindness gap:
1. Walk the walk. Children understand kindness through everyday interactions with their parents.
2. Talk the talk — give them kind language. Kindness is the ability to take another person’s perspective and then tailor your words and actions accordingly.
3. Reward big acts of kindness, but don't go overboard. Reward “uncommon acts of kindness”
4. Force them out of their comfort zone to teach empathy. Kids should interact with people from different backgrounds, to learn how to place themselves in someone else’s shoes
