Sensory, sensory and more sensory this year
Children at Northwest will have available more sensory 'tools' this upcoming year than every before!
sit n move cushions putty
bean bags pencil grips
chairs bands cube chairs
water bottles stress balls
And much much more!
Please, please remember to practice "I messages" with your child when dealing with any type of conflicts!
I feel........ feeling
When.......... undesirable behavior
Because........why you don't want that behavior
And I want.....what you want
Peer Tutor Program
Last year, we had over 54 fifth grade students who gave up their recess to 'tutor' a kindergarten child!! The program started in October and ran through June. Can you imagine the committment that is required from these students? And they LOVE doing it! Relationships flourish, self-esteem grows, knowledge abounds and everyone gains!! Ask your 5th grader if he or she is planning to be a tutor this year!
