November PBS Theme-Being Thankful
Grade 2 is continuing our work with developing students’ social and emotional awareness. Our goal is to support every child in their social and emotional development during school and providing parents with tools to support them out of school. We want the students to have the language and resources to identify the situation and how to respond to them.
This month is all about being thankful! We are looking to broaden students’ vocabulary to think about ways to show gratitude and what they are thankful for. Students can show family member gratitude by telling each other what they are grateful for (not just toys). We want the students to think more deeply about their lives and their family, community and friends.
Please help us out by talking with your children, reading books about gratitude and thankfulness, and modeling the desired behavior.
I am so grateful for your continued support and thankful for the help that you provide in and out of school each and every day!
