Branching Out Theme of the Week: My Friends – Old & New

The children are quickly forming friendships with classmates and telling stories about all of the fun things they do. Have you heard new friend’s names at home? This week are all learning all about each other and what it means to be a friend. Friends help each other and say kind things. We can help children learn to be a friend by role modeling this behavior when with friends you know well and those you don’t know. Try being friendly when in the grocery store and to neighbors and tell you child why you are doing it. We all need friends and can strive to make more!
