Conscious Discipline  

 The Conscious Discipline Seminar will be held on Thursday November 20th and December 11th from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.  Child Care will be provided.

 3 Tools for Time Management

1. Create a predictable routine and show it in pictures. Go over this visual routine often! (There are many examples of visual routines on Pinterest.)

2. Talk about how long something will take to do. Children don't really understand time until second grade. With younger ones, refer to blocks of time that they are familiar with such as lunch time, snack time, reading time, etc.

Here is an example: We just finished story time. Now, we will be working in centers until snack time.

3. Make picture calendars and schedules for children. Regularly, go over what they did, what they are doing, and what will happen next.

As always, we wish you well!
