Social Emotional

Teach your children how to be a good friend: https://thepreschooltoolboxblog.com/tips-for-helping-preschoolers-be-a-good-friend-teachece/ 

Look for Common Interests:  share with your children some visual clues they might look for at school (or in other social settings) to find a friend that may have similar interests.  Backpack characters, characters or logos on clothing and games that other children like to play are all good clues.  Remind children that by listening to their peers and observing, they will gain valuable information about what other children like.  Those clues will give a child something of value to ask another child about.  We ALL enjoy talking about the things we LIKE – preschoolers do, too!

WRITING PRACTICE:  

Do you have an old calendar at your house?  Every day before or after class have your children write in one of the boxes that matches the day of the week or the number of the day.  (Hint – each calendar rotates every seven years so if you found an old one from 2014 it will be correct to the day of week/number of date)
