Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Kindergarten is getting sweeter! Typically, in February we celebrate Valentine’s Day, but last week we spent some time celebrating ourselves! Usually, during Valentine’s Day we give valentines to our classmates, families, and other people we care about to let them know that we love and appreciate them. That is a great thing to do, but it’s also important to take time to remind ourselves of all the reasons we love ourselves! When we love ourselves, we feel better, we believe in ourselves, and we are more forgiving of ourselves when we make little mistakes.
Through alternating points of view, I’m Gonna Like Me: Letting Off a Little Self-Esteem by Jamie Lee Curtis shows kids that the key to feeling good is liking yourself because you are you! A healthy self-esteem must be carefully fostered in our youngsters if they are to realize, and eventually assume, all the promises and challenges that life sets before them. We must equip our children with tools that will aid in decision-making and challenge their abilities.
Kindergarten learned about self-esteem and explored all of the things that make each one of them so awesome. All of our falcons have wonderful qualities that are so lovable! Check out this fun activity we completed to illustrate our best qualities.
