Elementary Wellness Wednesday

In November we learned about: using words as tools, please & thank you, being thankful, and making memories. In December we will begin to explore how our behavior impacts relationships with others. Please practice asking your child/children about their feelings and try to get them to notice when feelings change. This will help establish a pattern of noticing and allowing for a pause. Then you can ask your child how they think they should respond. This will help teach self regulation.

The Zones of Regulation poster, can help children determine how they feel and then choose how to self regulate.

Holiday Schedules......

This is a very exciting time of year with all of the different holidays we share. Young children will thrive by maintaining a set schedule for sleep and learning tasks. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends elementary age children get between 8-10 hours of sleep per night. They state, “Regularly sleeping fewer than the number of recommended hours is associated with attention, behavior, and learning problems.”
