Part of our social studies curriculum is teaching children Red and Green choices (taken from Pocket of Preschool). The two colors are used as a visual reminder of the two choices students can make. We teach Red/Green by first talking about Red and Green choices, then giving examples of each. Children are asked to identify if an action is red or green. Visual charts are kept in our room all year to serve as a references as needed.
Carpet (or group) time can be a difficult time for us to settle and keep our bodies to ourselves. During the carpet, we utilize My Turn to Listen/My Turn to Talk (taken from Whole Body Listening). To find out more, contact Mikaela.
If a behavior arises, teachers will first try to redirect the child and remind them of the expectations.
Our preschool program's desire is to honor and respect your child, even amidst managing behaviors. If a behavior arises, teachers will first try to redirect the child and remind them of the expectations. If a behavior continues, the child will need to identify if they are making a red or green choice, and what needs to be done to rectify the situation. If this behavior continues, the child may be removed from the area and/or placed in time out.
