I Can't!

As we dig deeper into the kindergarten curriculum (and the snow!) the challenges increase.  More is asked and expected of students.  Gradually we increase the amount of work and decrease the amount of "play time".   The foundation and skills we have worked on are being tested and applied.

It is not uncommon for children to become frustrated.  Occasionally we hear the phrase, "I can't".  You might hear it at home too.  Do not fret.  We tell your child not to fret either.  Rephrase it..........consider saying, "I can't yet!"

It is okay to be frustrated.  It is learning to practice and persevere that is important.  We assure students that they will learn the skill that is challenging them and that with their continued effort and support at home and school they will be successful.

Pretty soon they will be saying........."This is easy!"
