Lifeskills - Coronavirus Resources

Hooray for Lifeskills - Special Edition - Coronavirus Resources

As we continue to make the health and safety of our school community a priority, it’s important to remember that times of uncertainty can also bring about fear and worry with our students.  I would like to provide families with some additional resources that can be helpful during this time:

Preschool/Early Elementary Aged Students - PBS Kids offers parents of Preschool/Early Elementary aged children developmentally appropriate suggestions for talking to children about Coronavirus.  This article also includes additional video links on healthy habits from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Sesame Street, Curious George and Super Why!

https://www.pbs.org/parents/thrive/how-to-talk-to-your-kids-about-coronavirus

In addition, the National Association of School Psychologists has shared a general resource, "Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus): A Parent Resource."  This document provides parents with guidance in responding to the virus within your family.  https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/school-climate-safety-and-crisis/health-crisis-resources/talking

Please know we are here for you as we navigate these uncharted waters together.  If I can be of any additional help to you or your child, please don't hesitate to reach out to me through email, lconway@thewaldenschool.org.
