weekly activities

Share Bucket. Each week, one child is given the "share bucket" to fill with things from home that the child would like to share with classmates throughout the week. The sharing child has an opportunity to talk about each item during circle time. The share bucket is a great way to learn about sharing and also promotes confidence and self-esteem in a healthy way as children talk about their items and receive positive feedback from classmates.

Classroom Jobs. Each student has jobs that rotate weekly, such as lunch helper, snack helper, line leader, etc. The expectations of each job are taught to the children who perform them. This promotes independence and self-esteem. Chilldren love doing their jobs!
