Resilient kids are problem solvers. They have the confidence that they can figure things out and handle what is thrown at them. This doesn’t mean they have to do it on their own – resilient kids know how to ask for help, but shouldn’t expect others to fix things for them. Practice problem solving with your children by encouraging them to define problems, brainstorm possible solutions, and try the solution they think will work best. Remember that it can be helpful to let your children struggle before you step in. Consider waiting for them to ask for help even when you can see there is a problem. With guidance and skill-building opportunities, all children can be successful!

Message from our school Librarian:

Repetition in books is valuable. If I began the phrase, “Run, run, as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m......” Most of you said in your mind, “the gingerbread man”. In Eric Carl’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar we read, “On Monday he ate through... On Tuesday he ate through... On Wednesday he ate through...” Goldilocks and the Three Bears goes through too hot, too cold, just right and too hard too soft, just right. Did you know that repetition in books is not only a lot of fun for kids to repeat but it also helps emergent readers learn to read. Repetition makes reading a memory game. It brings beginning readers into the story by helping them “read” words that are above their level. It increases their confidence with books. If you don’t have a repetitive book, you can read a favorite story over and over again until it becomes repetitive. Once a story is familiar, you can try to fill in the wrong words and let your young reader correct your reading. Have fun reading!
