Lets take a look at what's happening in St. Anthony Community Center.

 

What exactly are emotions?

 
Well, Webster says: a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. Emotions can place a huge role in how we learn, how we react to something, and even how we receive love and feel accepted.
 
Here are a few emotions we spoke of in afterschool
 
  • Sad 
  • Frustrated
  • Happy
  • Angry (accompanied with a stomp)
  • Excited

As we spoke of each emotion, the kids really grasped and understood how important it was to express their feelings and to be heard when they were vulnerable with them. One child even responded, “I think you’re making me feel better.” #success
 
The social emotional part of school is just as important as the learning of academics. Take the time daily to listen and hear what you child thinks about and learn how they feel. It will prove to be an incredible asset.
 

Homework Time

Smiles EmojisEvery day, regardless, it's homework time. Sometimes fun, sometimes not as fun but we ALWAYS have time for spelling. This is something the kids have really grown to take pride in. Listen to one of our 1st graders share his skills.

It is important to encourage
kids’ creativity. We love to play and stimulate our imagination, which helps with math and predictability. We also love to do some sort of physical activity, like jump rope or simple jumping jacks.

Watching our children develop, grow, and be curious is a delight and something not taken for granted.
