For Storytime we read “Bully” by Jennifer Sattler, and “The Very Greedy Bee” by Steve Smallman.
It is never to early to start teaching empathy and manners. Being a good role model is the best way to help your little ones learn compassion and kindness. Talk about your feelings, read books about feelings, and ask your child how they would feel in different situations.
Check out these sites for some more great empathy activities:http://preventingbullying.promoteprevent.org/8-empathy-activities & https://www.understood.org/en/friends-feelings/common-challenges/picking-up-on-social-cues/teaching-empathy-activities
Sharing can be really difficult, even for us adults! This site https://pathways.org/getting-preschoolers-share/ has some great ideas on helping preschool aged children learn to share. Remember, it is something that needs to be learned, so be patient and practice, practice, practice!
Starting in April, we are going to have outdoor storytimes. PreSchool Story Time
will be on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM and Wee Reads will be on Fridays at 10:30 AM. The outdoor storytimes will occur instead of virtual storytimes. If there is bad weather or it is colder than 55 degrees we will have virtual storytime. Be sure to follow us on Facebook so you can learn more!
Marc suggests Killing Crazy Horse by Bill O’Reilly. The book goes in-depth into the Indian Wars, from the United State’s founding to the famous battle that made Custer and Crazy Horse famous. A great read for history buffs and an eye-opening look into the brutality and efficiency of the Westward Expansion.
