A Peek at Our Week

 

This week we will be talking more about our March Mindset: Live to Give. We read The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein and thought about ways that we too can give to others. This mindset helps create self-worth, and allows us to help others while feeling the great satisfaction of making a difference!

New Look and Say Words: from, does, any. Keep reading every day! Practice makes us better! J

Our big question from last week: Do you like green eggs and ham? After our taste-test, 12 said yes and only 1 said no! J Oh what fun…! But thank you to all kindergarten friends for trying it- way to be great sports! J It was a very fun Dr. Seuss week!

 The Seven Mindsets 

What do the world’s happiest and most successful people have in common? It’s how they think! This year we will learn and activate success strategies and empower ourselves to live the lives of our dreams! March’s mindset is…

 

Live to Give!!

The Live to Give mindset teaches the importance of serving others while maximizing our own potential. It tells us that abundance in life is a cycle: that, in order receive love, respect, and financial security, we must first learn to give those things to others. This mindset also teaches us that the greatest gift we can ever give is to find and leverage our unique genius to maximize our positive impact on the world, knowing the good things will be returned to us in kind. In the lessons for this mindset, we guide students to think about the impact they want to make and the legacy they want to leave.

  •  “Show and Tell” is an exciting event in kindergarten!  Books, games, toys, insects, rocks, photos, etc. that are special to your child are all great examples of items he/she may bring. Please do not send any toy guns or other toys that simulate various types of weapons. Also, please do not send valuable or highly breakable things to school…you’d be surprised what those backpacks go through on the school bus! During Show and Tell, your child learns about questioning, critical thinking, problem solving, as well as language skills. It is also a “feel good” time of the day to share about themselves and what they are proud of!
