Dear Families,

The children welcomed December into our classroom. Winter is on its way!

The children continued working within all areas of the classroom. We introduced paper chains in art. Some children decided to start decorating our room for Christmas.

In order to promote independence in our Prepared and structured classroom, the children have been practicing making choices. We always encourage the children to make good choices within limits. For example, a good choice would be using a quiet voice rather than a loud voice. This allows the others to concentrate on their work.

You can help your child to make choices in a structured way at home.
Provide your child simple choices between two items.
*Allow your child to choose between two different shirts.
*Offer two different choices for dinner.
*Let them choose a bedtime story (even if it’s a book you’ve read many times before).

Allow your child to make choices throughout the day!

Regards,
Tina
