As we get ready to celebrate our Nation's Independence Day, we can't help to be reminded of what it means to be independent. A baby learning to walk, a toddler potty training, and a preschooler learning skills needed to enter kindergarten are all building blocks on the path to independence.
This week in our Kindergarten Transition program, we are focusing on social-emotional skills and what parents can do to help their children succeed in school.
Social-emotional skills are essential for connecting with others. These important skills help manage our emotions, build healthy relationships, and feel empathy.
- Recognizing if someone is sad, and asking if they are OK
- Take pride in accomplishments
- Listens and pays attention
- Understanding your thoughts, feelings, and being able to relate to others
These are just a few of the many skills that make up social-emotional development. While these skills may sound complex, social and emotional development begins at a very young age and are important for starting kindergarten.
Lastly, we hope you carve out some time on Thursday night. We are hosting a Facebook Live Event centered around "Helping Your Child Succeed in School". We will be taking your questions live during this event. Last week's event was a big success.
In this email, you will find all Week 4 custom-designed content:
