Our four program-wide expectations are Be Compassionate, Be Curious, Be A Community and Be Courageous. This week we will focus on how children can Be Compassionate.

We are Compassionate when we:

  • Offer to help someone
  • Cheer someone up
  • Support others
  • Listen to how others are feeling
  • Listen to different ideas

In this week’s learning resource, you’ll find an activity related to this week’s expectation. Let us know how it went!

Activities to Try at Home!

Art / Writing

Be Compassionate with yourself!

Sometimes we need to remember to be nice to ourselves. We make mistakes, and things happen. It’s important to honor those feelings and also remember what we love about ourselves! This art activity can help us remember what we like about ourselves!

Materials:

  • Paper
  • Crayons
  • Tape or glue
  • Scissors

Directions:

1. On one piece of paper, draw a big heart shape. If you want, you can color it in and cut it out!

2. On other small pieces of paper, draw pictures or write some words that describe things you like about yourself. Examples can include how you smile, or how fast you can run, your eyes or hair color! Anything you like about yourself.

3. Draw out the pictures on small pieces of paper and you may cut them out if you want. Then use tape or glue to attach those pictures to the big heart you made! Then when you’re feeling down, you can look at all the things you love about yourself to help you feel better. 🙂

Movement / Play

Lilly Pads Jumping Game

The Lilly Pads jumping game can be played in groups as well as individually.

Choose large objects such as place mats, hula hoops, or flat cardboard boxes, as Lilly pads.  You can place numbers, letters, shapes, colors, or any fun picture on the Lilly Pads.

Place about eight Lilly pads on the ground in such a way that each Lilly pad should be placed one foot apart.

Lilly pads are known to hold anyone on it safely above the river. Let your preschoolers jump from one Lilly pad to the next by taking turns in order, one at a time while play-pretending the Lilly pads are in water.

The kid who misses jumping on to the Lilly pad and touches the ground outside the Lilly Pad is out or must start all over again.

Is it Waterproof?

Watch this short video and use it to find out what materials in your home kitchen are waterproof! If you put plastic wrap over a cup like in the video, does water go in the cup? Just be sure to clean up in case there’s a mess! 🙂 https://video.link/w/j1RGc
