Social and Emotional Wellness
I believe that it is our mission to not only educate our kids academically but also socially and emotionally. Yes, this includes reading and math but also character development, building self-esteem, coping strategies, making friends, conflict resolution skills and the list goes on.
Using Literature to reach your kids...
Using children's literature is a great way to not only read with your child but also to touch on some tricky topics. Julia Cook is an amazing author that has TONS of books on topics like divorce, bullying, following directions and MANY more. Let me know---I may just have one you need in my library.
