Feeling Sad

Sammy was feeling sad so she took some time for herself and went to the feelings corner. She read The Smile Book and looked at pictures of our friends making different feeling faces and then she felt ready to talk about what was bothering her.

Sammy respected herself by acknowledging how she felt and give herself time to experience those feelings in a healthy way.

Good job Sammy!

"Snow! It's cold!" - Bradley

We took some time to notice the sun was making the snow melt, so we could now see more ground and sand. 

We also noticed cars pulling in and out of the parking lot, and snow falling from the trees. 

 

Tracing Shapes Outside

Using chalk, we traced the rectangular shaped cement blocks outside.

And then we traced our hands and feet.

In September the children had a hard time connecting the Tinkertoys, and now just after 2 short months they had no problem.

Great fine motor progress!
