Buddies!  Kindergarten

Social skills are a big part of kindergarten.  Buddies! helps children sharpen these skills before the school year begins.  We target skills such as 2 way conversation, cooperation and sharing in play, understanding that they can’t always be first or play what they want…Each week we will learn a new friendship skill (such as listening, cooperation, conflict resolution, empathy, respect, being a leader, dealing with strong feelings) and then PRACTICE IT while playing games.  Practicing in a calm atmosphere will help them translate it to other settings.  Kids will make new friends, learn friendship skills so they are more likely to stay friends, and have fun while doing it in this unique play-group! Parents are invited for the last 5 minutes of each meeting to hear a synopsis of the lesson and receive handouts for reinforcement and practice at home.  The topics of each week will be tailored to the students’ needs. If a session is missed a free make-up session will be provided, limit one per child. Limited to 6 students. (Note:  If your child is kindergarten age, but you are waiting a year he/she is still eligible for this class.) Wednesdays 4:30-5:15pm, June 10, 17, 24, July 11, 18, 25, $39
