By providing children with a physical way to represent letters, parents will be helping their children remember the letter names, be able to identify the letters visually, and understand the function of letters to represent the separate sounds within words.
July 29: Manners, Mealtime and More
Good manners do more than impress people. They also express gratitude and promote harmonious interactions. Helping children learn these social skills is important because kids who feel grateful and treat others well are more empathic, get along better with peers and adults, and feel more satisfied with life than those who don't. Manners are best taught through example, and mealtime provides many opportunities. Because manners are abstract ideas, including simple signs can make the concepts more concrete for young children. That's the purpose of this class. Additionally, increasing a child's mealtime vocabulary reduces frustration by enabling the child to be more precise in expressing likes and dislikes—resulting in more harmonious mealtimes!
