Dear Parents and Caregivers, Save the Children has an opportunity for children and families in Calhoun County! We offer weekly Parent Child Groups throughout the county. The focus of these groups will be Kindergarten Readiness Skills for children 3 to 5 years old, but all younger siblings are also welcomed to attend. Snacks will also be provided! One lucky parent/caregiver will win a small door prize. During the weekly Parent Child Groups, we will be exploring the following Language, Literacy and Math Kindergarten Readiness skill areas: Knowing about the alphabet, books and print; talking and listening; understanding words and sounds; numbers, counting, patterns, sorting and classification; comparison, measurement and geometry. These are all critical skills that your child needs in order to be prepared for Preschool and Kindergarten. I look forward to meeting you and helping prepare your child for school success! Group location and dates for the month of March: Calhoun FRN on Tuesdays from 11-12 Upper West Fork Park on Wednesday from 1-2 Pleasant Hill Elementary on Thursday from 4:30-5:30 Arnoldsburg Elementary on Fridays from 2-3 Here’s a tip card to use with your littles. Use Your Words: Does your child get upset and start to cry or whine? Gently remind them to use their words to say what is bothering them or what they want. If they’re too upset to talk, try to guess what they want to say until they let you know you got it. Brainy Background: Helping your child learn to use words to share upset feelings is one of the best tools you can give them. This helps your child managing these feelings and express them in ways that others can understand and responded to. Ages 2 years - 3 years #152 If you have any questions, I can be reached at Pleasant Hill Elementary School at 304-354-6022 or Arnoldsburg Elementary School 304-655-8616, or email email@example.com. Come and join the fun! Debra Smith, KRA
