Each child will be given a red Raising-A-Reader bag containing four books to take home. Parents are encouraged to read with their children on a daily basis and encourage their children to read or retell the story to the parent in return. Raising-A-Reader books should not be exchanged with other students and the bag and books are to be returned on a weekly basis in order to receive a new set of books.
Second Step is a universal Violence Prevention Curriculum designed to reduce aggressive behavior and increase social competence. Churchland Preschool students are taught skills in the core areas of empathy, emotion management (impulse control, emotion regulation and anger management), and social problem solving. The preschool classroom provides an ideal setting for teaching children these skills through the use of puppets, rhymes, songs, and role playing.
