Along with Groundhog day on February 2nd …will we have many more weeks of winter or an early spring?….
Either way we will celebrate Valentines Day on the 14th! A wonderful day to show love in action to those around us…
All this month at New Steps we are emphasizing loving, caring, sharing and kindness
Feel free to mentor and model as well as provide activities all month with your child putting into practice what they are learning at school.
Some ways we can do this practically are:
Using encouraging words when a new task is practiced.ie) Wow, great job at getting those boots on…that is a tough job sometimes.
A simple acknowledgement about a positive trait your child exhibits, ie) Thank you Cherise for sharing your toy with your brother this morning. That really is showing your brother kindness.
Listening……Listening……Listening…. We are all so busy…… sometimes taking the time to slow down….sit down…..make eye contact and just listen…to those we love ….is what we need …. to feel loved and be loved!
And…..don’t we all love encouragement? Let’s use February to lavish it on the ones closest to us…and it just may spill over everywhere….
ENJOY VALENTINES DAY…..AND SPREAD THE LOVE!
