This month's advocacy topic is self-regulation! We will be reviewing our unit from the beginning of the year on identifying emotions and then we will be figuring out what to do when we feel those emotions rising up within us!
Because it is a new semester, your child will be seeing some new faces. The kindergarten team has shuffled up every class to make sure we are supporting each child in every aspect. Feel free to have conversations with your child about this, some may be sad that their friend is not in their class anymore and others will be figuring out how to be in a new classroom. You should have received an email from your Advocacy teacher if your child is one that will be moved.

This month in Advocacy, we are talking about Optimism and Gratitude. This is a great month for us to be positive and thankful!
We will be doing some fun activities around the language we use in the classroom and how it can be optimism or pessimism. We will also do some perspective taking and an action advent calendar counting down to break!
