Regulates Feelings and Impulses – November

The ARISE Strategic Action Team of parents and partners created these pages to share activities and information about kindergarten preparedness. Preparing for kindergarten starts long before the autumn a child enters a classroom for the first day of school. Everyday interactions with young children help develop their abilities and skills – and are a lot of fun too!

Each month we focus on a different goal in the Alaska Developmental Profile (ADP). This assessment is based on the Alaska Early Learning Guidelines and is the measure ARISE tracks to see how prepared Alaska Native and Native American students are when they arrive at school for that exciting first day. Follow ARISE on Facebook for posts on each month’s topic.

November theme: Regulates feelings and impulses

Learning how and when to show emotions is an essential part of a child’s social-emotional development. While infants need a responsive and predictable environment, toddlers need to feel independent and capable. Learning to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings with work is key to learning self-regulation. Learn about how you can help your child regulate his or her feelings and impulses by checking out these resources.
