Book of the Month
Our Book of the Month for January and February is Wordy Birdy by Tammi Sauer. Wordy Birdy loves words and she talks – A LOT! A hilarious and fun book with an important message about listening and communication. Learning how to listen is a crucial aspect of communication and at school, we teach children about Whole Body Listening where each part of our body plays a part in showing someone that we are listening to them.
You may want to take a look at these tips on positive ways to talk and listen with your child at home. Asking specific questions, for example, is a great way to invite children to open up and let them know you are really listening. Effective communication helps build strong relationships and is a skill that children will be able to utilize in every aspect of their life!
