TOOLS OF THE MIND
I am very excited to implement a new curriculum called Tools of the Mind for the upcoming school year. Tools of the Mind is a comprehensive curriculum that focuses on the development of both cognitive and social-emotional self regulation at the same time that academic skills are taught. Self regulation include the following abilities:
*Pay attention and stay on task
*Remember on purpose
*Hold two strategies in mind at the same time
*The development of self-discipline
My goal is to offer specific instructional activities that will teach self-regulation and reflective thinking. I will incorporate strategies to help children enhance their make-believe play which will support their self-regulation development. Please check the following website on various Tools of the Mind Pre-K activities that will be introduced in the classroom:
I look forward to a wonderful school year with you and your child.
