Next week we will be following a recipe to make ice-cream in a bag, practicing creating alphabet letters with buttons, writing numbers in shaving cream, re-telling a story with picture cards, refining our fine motor skills with lacing cards, and creating and extending a variety of patterns. Our read aloud is The Mitten, and our letter of the week is A,a.
Our Second Steps lesson is on “Managing Disappointment.” Young children have strong feelings about what they want, and may have a strong emotional reaction when they don’t get it. Adults may be tempted to give children what they want to avoid a strong emotional reaction, but we know disappointed feelings are just part of life. Taking deep belly breaths will help your child calm down when they are experiencing a strong emotion.
