Happy Thursday!

Asking open-ended questions is a great way to expand your child's thinking.  When they ask you a question, instead of answering it, you can ask them what they think may be going on.  Here is an example....

 

Child: Why do bugs have legs?

Parent:  Hmm, I wonder what they use those legs for?

Child: The bugs look like they are moving.

Parent:  What do you use your legs for?

Child: I walk with my legs, bugs walk too!

 

Here is a book with lots of questions to ponder!

Happy Wednesday!

In the classroom we spend a lot of time writing, but we don't just writing on paper with crayons, we write and draw on everything!  As children develop their fine motor skills, such as writing, they start with large movements and gradually refine those movements.  For example, before a child can write their name, they will scribble large loopy designs.  Help your child write by giving them lots of different surfaces to write on and different tools to write with.  Use chalk on the side walk, or tape a large piece of paper to the wall.  Let them make big letters and shapes before you have them practice writing small letters.  Here is an activity you can do with your child for hours of fun... and don't worry the paint will wash off in the rain

Happy Thursday,

In the classroom we talk a lot about our feelings.  As teachers, we label what we are feeling, such as "I am so excited to see you!" or, "I feel frustrated when my puzzle will not go together."  This gives the children an example of what the feeling might look like and teaches them the word to express what they feel inside.  We are careful to to label the feelings as positive or negative, but rather as feelings that feel good to our bodies (happy, excited, silly) and feelings that do not feel good in our bodies (mad, sad, scared.)  We also talk a lot about how feelings change.  Our big mad feeling can get smaller and eventually we may feel happy again.  In this video, I will model talking about feelings.

Happy Monday!
I know that it can be hard to make your preschool child listen to you, it can seem like half of the words they say is, "No!"  Things are no different in the classroom, young children love to asset their independence by saying no.  This is an important stage in development, they are growing up and can express their independence by making choices and showing their preferences.  However, they still need to learn to listen to adults.  Following directions is a very important skill.  In the classroom, we use precision requests to help them learn to follow directions.  Precision requests are specific verbal directions that follow a specific sequence.  If you use this format of making a request of a child regularly, magical things happen!  Children learn that they have to listen to you no matter what.  They gradually learn to listen the first time, because they know that you will make them follow the direction.   In the sequence it says to wait 10 seconds, this is to give the child time to process the request, you may repeat the request one more time during this wait time, but do not nag during this time.
 
Here is the sequence...
 

Precision Requests

  1. State the request
    • “Sarah, I need you to clean up your toys.”
      • Wait 10 seconds
        • Compliance: Celebrate!
          1. “Thank you for cleaning up your toys!  You are being so responsible!!!”
        • Non-compliance: move on to step 2
  2. State the request with signal word
    • “Sarah, I need you to clean up your toys NOW.”
      • Wait 10 seconds
        • Compliance: Celebrate!
          1. “Thank you for cleaning up your toys!  You are being so responsible!!!”
        • Non-compliance: move on to step 3
  3. State the request with choices
    • “Sarah, will you clean up your trains first or your cars?”
      • Wait 10 seconds
        • Compliance: Celebrate!
          1. “Thank you for cleaning up your toys!  You are being so responsible!!!”
        • Non-compliance: move on to step 4
  4. State the request with consequences
    • “Sarah, you need to clean up your toys, or I will help you.”
      • Wait 10 seconds
        • Compliance: Celebrate!
          1. “Thank you for cleaning up your toys!  You are being so responsible!!!”
        • Non-compliance: follow through with consequence
          • Help child clean up using hand-over-hand or other consequence
Happy Teaching!

Hi Everyone,

I know that it can be hard to get your child to sit down and read with you for 30 minutes a day, but here are some tips and suggestions to make it more fun…

  1. Let your child pick the book (yes, even the one that you have read 1000 times. )
  2. Encourage your child to ‘read’ to you
  3. Make a special reading spot in your home, keep it cozy, maybe even make a tent or fort
  4. Make the room dark and read with a flashlight
  5. Read your favorite book in silly voices
  6. Write your own stories to read together
  7. Find books with interactive elements, such as lift the flap books
  8. Act out the story with movements
  9. Schedule reading time into each day
  10. Know when to stop and give your child a break

Remember you do not have to read for 30 minutes straight, you can break it up through out the day! :)

Research shows one of the best ways to increase your child's words is to read, read, read.   Don't worry about all the words on the pages.  Have fun with the book.  Watch how Jimmy Fallon does it.  He's demonstrating "how to" read with them.  Look at each picture. Talk about it.  Label pictures, Label actions. Label colors.  Ask simple questions.  It's takes some practice but you can do it!

Happy Monday!

I know that some of you may be struggling to keep your child calm and engaged, think we are all going a little stir crazy.  In the classroom, when a student needs a chance to refocus their energy, we give them a sensory activity.  Sensory activities can be anything from playing in a box of dried beans to finger painting with pudding or even digging a hole in dirt.  It is amazing how long a preschool child can play in a sand box or with shaving cream.  While the activities can be messy, you can always play in the bathtub, then rinse them off when they are done playing.  Here is a YouTube Video I made of a super simple sensory activity that you can make together.

 https://youtu.be/Ztw2FuNCOqo

Making Soap Foam: a sensory activity

Ingredients: 1/4 cup water 2 tbsp dish soap Food coloring

youtu.be

This recipe for Soap foam is just ¼ cup of water, 2 tablespoons dish soap and a few drops of food coloring.  Whip the ingredients together until you get a still foam (similar texture to shaving cream.)  Now you have hours of clean fun.  You can squish it, squeeze it and practice writing in it.  If you feel ambitious, you can make a rainbow of colors and explore combining colors to make new ones!

Have Fun!

Hello Families,

I'm sure that we are all doing a lot of cooking these days, and cooking with your child is a great way to work on literacy skills (reading the recipe,) math skills (measuring and counting,) communication skills ("What do you think is happening?",) and so many other areas of development.  I have made a video of a really easy pita bread recipe. 

https://youtu.be/m694RmZd9qo

Cooking Together: Let's Make Pita Bread

Look for the recipe in the comments section

youtu.be

I hope you have fun spending time together in the kitchen!

Ms. Emily

Pita Bread

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 ¾ c all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon  sugar
  • 1 teaspoon yeast

INSTRUCTIONS

Mix together your ingredients

  1. Measure the flour into a bowl. Add the salt, sugar and yeast into different corners of the bowl.
  2. Pour the water and oil into the bowl a little at a time. Use a spoon (or your hands) to mix until all the flour comes away from the side and you have a soft dough. You might not need to add all the water – you want the dough to be soft, not sticky.

Kneed your dough

  1. Put a little oil on your work surface to stop the dough sticking. Put the dough on top and start kneading. You’ll need to do it for 5-10 minutes until it looks smooth.  Once you’re done, place it in a clean bowl, cover it with cling film and leave it somewhere warm until it has doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 475F and place a baking tray or baking stone on the middle shelf.

Make the pita breads

  1. Once the dough has doubled in size, pour it out on to a lightly floured work surface and knock it back (fold it inwards again and again until the air has gone – or just get your preschooler to man handle it!)
  2. Split the dough into 6 equal sized balls then roll each into a ¼ inch thick oval shape. Remove the baking tray from the oven, sprinkle with flour and place the pita breads on it.
  3. Bake for 5-10 minutes. They’re ready when they’ve started to brown – They may puff up into nice big pockets

I hope everyone got a chance to enjoy the sunshine over the weekend!  I keep hearing from families that their child is begging to go back to school, and that all this time at home can be hard (I am right there with them.)  To help you talk to your children about why we all have to stay home, I made this video about germs.  We have read this book many times in the classroom, so they should be familiar with it.   After watching the video, please help your child practice correctly washing their hands.  All of this virus talk can be scary for little ones and teaching them how to keep themselves safe is empowering.

  • We will no longer serve breakfast from 8:30-9:30am every day. Instead, we will serve combo meals every day from 11:30am-12:30pm. We will continue to serve meals every weekday, Monday to Friday, even during Spring Break.
  • Each combo meal will include a sack lunch to eat today, and a sack breakfast to refrigerate and eat tomorrow. 
  • Depending on demand, sites may remain open longer if families are still in line after 12:30pm.
  • Please note that we will NOT serve breakfast on Monday morning as we shift to this new format. We apologize for any disruption this may cause.

Hello Everyone,

I hope today is much calmer for you than yesterday!   Here is a social story about COVID19 for preschoolers.  It can be very hard to explain everything that is going on to our young children, but I think this story does a good job.  Our kids are so aware, but may not have the vocabulary to ask needed questions.  This story has enough pictures that your child can 'read' it to themselves after you read it together.  

Please reach out with any questions or suggestions that you may have

Stay Safe,

Wow!  What a morning!  I hope everyone is safe!  This can be a very scary time.  Talking to your child about what to do to stay safe will help ease their fears.  Here is a short youtube video that I found…  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSvB2US5r-4 .  Here is a link for another earthquake story.  It is about a more severe earthquake so please read it yourself and decide if it will help your child, https://www.nctsn.org/sites/default/files/resources//trinka_sam_the_day_the_earth_shook.pdf

I will continue to check my email, emily.gill@slcschools.org.  Please reach out if you need anything.
