    Hello Hillside!
     
     
    A story for kids about social distancing

    Tuesday Tip for the Day:
    from Child Mind Institute
     
    FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE:

    In this time, parents can manage anxiety (yours and your children’s) by remaining optimistic.

    • Remind the family that experts are working hard to contain the virus
    • Don’t dwell on hypothetical worst-case scenarios
    • Maintain agency over what you can control — meals, bedtime, homework, hugs.
     
    Monday Tip for the Day:
    From Child Mind Institute

    KEEP YOUR SCHEDULES FRESH

    When developing at-home schedules, try to alternate between activities kids enjoy (like playing or screen time) with less popular tasks (like chores or homework).

    • Variety helps kids focus and gives parents a break.
    • Remember, this also applies to your schedule: alternate between work and family time.
    • Don't forget to give yourself some “me time.”

    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Week 1:
    I am thinking of all of you at this time and hoping you are all healthy and safe as you practice social distancing.  This time can be very isolating and stressful as you manage your children’s wellbeing, education and entertainment all while trying to work and to manage your own wellbeing.  Please know you are not out there alone.  I am still here to support your family as best I can from afar! 
     
    I have activities that are included in each grade level folder and will add to those once or twice a cycle.  I will also send more ideas as well as videos and other visual activities from time to time.  Please use what makes sense for your family and how you have planned for this time at home.
     
    I will keep adding material to my webpage.  Under Counselor Corner there is a post about helping children deal with emotions. 
     
    Please feel free to reach out to me via email and I can call you back as well.  We use Microsoft Teams to make the calls and the number will be a 717 -431-7267.  This is uncharted territory so we will work together to figure it out. 
     
    Stay well!
