🔍 Key Takeaways from Chazz Lewis

  • Be aware of the emotions of the children right now and create experiences for them, let them be out in the rain, and jump in the puddles, and play the floor is lava (safely)!
  • Replace screen time with sensory play and get them outside as much as possible!
  • Plant the seed to help children visualize what will happen next. Use a visual timer for virtual classes to help children anticipate transitions.
  • Be real and validate how the children feel. 
  • Fidget toys can help children focus and self regulate. Especially those who are doing virtual learning.

🌟Audience Shoutouts!

:speaking_head_in_silhouette: Lucinda – On those days when you are feeling down think of one positive thing. One simple thing that puts a smile on your face. You might have to dig deep to find it but it is there. 

:speaking_head_in_silhouette: Elena – We call parents, often encourage them to send us the picture of children participating in daily activities that we post on Facebook. We also ask parents to send us a picture of the process of children coloring, reading, listening to music, and playing outside. 


:speaking_head_in_silhouette:Rose – The children here are doing very well! The COVID experience is different but we are working together and learning in a new way.
