The Bears Are Back
Today we are still using bears to work on our foundation skills . Today we used a bear hunt game to practice our counting and one to one correlation skills.
With Spring always comes some very large emotions as the children try to figure out this ” friendship ” thing. You will hear a lot of ” you are not my best friend today.” Our go-t0 answer is we are all a preschool family and we treat our family with kindness. If you want to teach you can go the step further to say ” Your face looks like this ( mimic ) when you say that . Are you angry ?” Offer empathy . ” You wanted to play with your friend alone . Its hard. Look at your friend’s face. How are they feeling ? ( wait for answer ) I will not MAKE you play with them but what can you do to help them when they feel sad?”
Growing older and managing emotions is hard.
