This week the students have been working really hard on practicing our rules. Particularly rule numbers 1, 2, & 3 (if you don't know what they are, please ask your child). We read a book called My Mouth is a Volcano and recalled times everybody has been interrupted and how it made them feel. We also learned and discussed ways we could stop ourselves from interrupting others: breath our words out of our nose until it is our turn and breath them back in, make figure eights that Ms. F showed us last week, raise pur hand, or just wait patiently for our turn to speak. It would be very helpful to to talk about these and have your child practice some of these turn talking strategies in your everyday routines.
Next week we will practice our listening/following directions skills.
Stay tuned :)
