Weekly Update 11/8-11/12

This week we talked all about what trees need to grow and we started to talk about how trees change. We talked about how our bodies change as we grow older and trees change too.

In small groups this week we practiced making patterns, making our name, and making various emotions using playdoh.

Our second step lessons focused on how to identify when someone is feeling angry and what we can do if we are feeling angry. We have a calm down area in our classroom where students can go if they are experiencing a big emotion. This area has some cozy pillows, sensory toys, and mirrors to support students as they calm their bodies. We also practiced how to take deep breaths and ask a teacher/adult for help.
