Whirligigs: Lessons from around the world
Our summer Social Skills Group will explore lessons about life, love, and friendship through stories from around the globe.
Using stories from around the world, children will form their own folktale about themselves and their relation with others. Components of friendship and developing qualities such as being trustworthy, generous, appreciative, having frustration tolerance, and perseverance are just some of the topics covered in this group. We will also work on rules of friendship, self-regulation and coping skills through experiential play including games, movement, art, and acting.
