"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Home Challenge:  Rediscover things your child can do.  Let them know you notice how well they can put their own clothes on, or make their bed, or help set the table.  Be specific in your praise.  What ever it is try this week to tell them how much you appreciate the things they can do.  This helps them know they are important and loved. 

If you are not continuing preschool I would challenge you to find time everyday that you sit with your child and create something, practice letters and numbers.  This will help them continue to get ready for Kindergarten.  I have been so proud of every single one!
