Aug / Sept  Mindfulness       3rd –  5th grades https://www.parenttoolkit.com/social-and-emotional-development/news/general-parenting/eight-ways-to-bring-mindfulness-into-your-family Guidance Introduction     K-2nd grades      Who is Mrs. Ambrose and how can she help me?

Jan/Feb  Managing Your Anger Although presented in different ways for each grade, the main coping skills I emphasis with the students are:  walking away, taking deep breaths, positive self-talk and doing something physical to release built up anger energy. This is a really good website for more ideas helping your child manage their anger, as well as, ideas for how parents can help when their child is upset: https://copingskillsforkids.com/managing-anger March/April          Child Safety In the next couple months, I will be doing our Child Abuse Prevention lessons during my class guidance time on Wow Weds.  For K-2nd grade, I will be offering lessons through Safer, Smarter Kids.  For further information, please visit the website https://safersmarterkids.org/.  In 3rd-5th grade, I will offering lessons through Child Safety Matters.  For further information on this program, please visit the website https://mbfchildsafetymatters.org/.  Opt out letters were sent home in Tuesday folders.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
