SEL (“EQ”) Show & Tell
Thursday & Friday, September 21st & 22nd
“All About Me, and Getting To Know You”
As we get to know each other, we’d like to give each child a chance to share a little about him/herself at our first EQ Show & Tell of the school year. This sharing time validates a child’s feelings of importance and develops social skills that are fundamental to every relationship: the skills of speaking and listening.
Show & Tell may be a favorite toy (that your child can operate on his/her own), a picture drawn or taken to demonstrate an accomplishment, or how your family spent the summer… or anything that helps your child tell about him/herself!
Our September Theme:
Welcome to the School Year: Friendship, Cooperation & Caring
It’s all about relationships: with ourselves, with other people, and with everything in our environment. This is what EQ (emotional intelligence) is all about, and this is foundational for the Kinder Works Curriculum.
So we always start our new school year by learning about our school, our new friends, and ourselves. Rules, respect, and routines help us keep our environments safe, healthy, and pleasing. Manners, mutual respect, and cooperation help us make and keep friends. Self-respect and communication skills enable us to meet our individual needs and know ourselves better.
As we communicate about ourselves, our families, and our community, we will also begin our yearly practice of Sign Language and begin learning Spanish.

“Celebrating Our Childhood”
International Children’s Day began in 1925 and is still celebrated in many places around the world today. It is a day to show respect for and celebrate childhood. Here at Kinder Works, we are going to celebrate it all month long! We will look at children all around the world, remember our EQ projects that helped those in need, and think of ways to continue helping. So as we prepare for Show and Tell this month, we would like to honor our own children, and all that they have experienced during this school year. As our school year comes to an end and we celebrate childhood, it is important for us to remember that children learn through play, exploration, and imagination!
Ask your child to remember and share some of his or her most joyful experiences from this past school year. They can draw a picture, share a favorite photo, or bring in an object that represents their fondest memory to share with their classmates during this month’s Show and Tell.
