Breathing techniques work well for children and adults as well and have the power to reduce the effects of stressful situations. At the Montessori School of Pleasanton, we incorporate breathing techniques as a way of helping our elementary students get control of their emotions and deal with anxiety and unpleasant situations.
Cultural diversity is fundamental to life in the United States, and the African American contribution to history is extensive and impressive. We encourage you to help your preschooler learn about it at home during Black History Month as well.
Valentine’s Day projects are a great way for preschoolers to learn about crafting. Hearts are the order of the day, and decorating them in individual ways helps children build self-esteem as it enhances fine motor skills. At Mission Valley Montessori, we value the opportunity for children to learn and play at the same time, and these fun projects are great examples of how the two work in concert.
