We have had another busy week here in Prek 4.2. The children have been engaging in a variety of activities to help introduce and reinforce rules and routines. Many important discussions have taken place in our circle time where we have brainstormed of different ways to play safely, kindly and responsibly inside and outside our classes. Our children have really provided accurate descriptions and reasons of how and why we should all comply with specific guidelines.
In addition to rules, we have also been focusing on the topic " All About Me" which of course blends very well with the concept of feelings . We have been learning about the different emotions and how we can communicate our ideas and feelings effectively.
All About Me
WHAT IS IN A NAME
Encourage your child to write notes to family members, help make a shopping or a to do list. Writing is meaningful and useful and that is what they are discovering in class.

Friendly Reminders and News
Please remember to reinforce some of our conscious discipline strategies of STAR which entails to stop, take a deep breath and relax. We have been using this in school and discussing how it is ok to be upset or angry. We remind students that we have a strategy that can help us. It is also helpful to label our children's feelings so that they become aware of the names of how they feel.
Reading to our children at least 15 minutes a day will maintain strong bonds with adults and allow them to further develop literacy skills.So please remember not to miss out on this fun activity with your child.
