The children in Room 203 often hear me say “Hands are for Helping!” We promote using hands for helping instead of hurting often throughout the school year. The children are also encouraged to always use their words instead of their hands to solve problems peacefully! We have been reading the book Hands Are Not for Hitting by Martine Agassi, Ph. D to also help convey this message to our friends in the class. Please help reinforce the idea of “Hands are for Helping” at home by having a conversation with your child about ways they can use their hands for helping instead of hurting. Thank you for partnering with me to promote a peaceful environment at school!

Here are some photos of friends using their hands for helping this week!
