MESSAGE FROM YOUR TEACHER,

We want to set them up for the same day/time each week but if you have something at same time occasionally you can call me or text to me and I can change make another schedule.
For the toddler to express caring feeling and give hugs, pats, or high fives to other children.
Toddlers sometimes find difficult to learn to express affection to other children their partners do not cooperate; however, expressing affection is important.
Begin by complimenting the toddler on giving his teddy bear love he hugs it. When he is with another child and both seem to be sharing pleasurable feeling, ask him if he would like to give the child a hug. Do this a couple of times and then watch to see if the children hug, pat or high fives each other spontaneously.
