Comment on Routines and Self-Care by TulipTree https://tuliptreepreschool.com/tuliptree/routines-and-self-care/#comment-7354 Mon, 17 Jun 2019 20:18:28 +0000 https://tuliptreepreschool.com/?p=22040#comment-7354 I think appropriate responsibilities are things that we know the children can handle themselves. For a 3.5 year old I would say this might include: cleaning up materials after working with them, bussing dishes after a meal, cleaning face and hands after a meal, picking clothing out of two outfits (some children may be ready to pick their own clothes without having them narrowed into outfit options), getting on/taking off extra clothing for outdoor time, helping in the garden and with pets, and night time self care such as getting pjs on and brushing teeth. Making these responsibilities part of the routine and setting them up as expectations can help negate that feeling of nagging. “You’re asking to go out and play, but there are still toys on the ground. We always clean up before leaving our space.” “I noticed you are walking away from the table, but you don’t have your plate. We always clean and stack our plates before moving on to the next activity.” Modeling these behaviors as part of your personal routine will also help set you up for success, as your child will naturally want to emulate you. Of course there is always wiggle room if things just aren’t working out that day. “You seem extra tired this morning, I noticed you still haven’t picked out an outfit. Shall I choose for you this time? You can try again tomorrow when you’re more rested.”

Comment on Routines and Self-Care by Laura https://tuliptreepreschool.com/tuliptree/routines-and-self-care/#comment-7311 Fri, 14 Jun 2019 04:24:02 +0000 https://tuliptreepreschool.com/?p=22040#comment-7311 I have been thinking of this lately. I wonder what “appropriate responsibilities” are for a 3.5 year old? I like that term vs “chores”. And how do you get them to do these responsibilities without turning into a nag?

Comment on To Tulip Tree We Go by TulipTree https://tuliptreepreschool.com/tuliptree/to-tulip-tree-we-go/#comment-7221 Wed, 05 Jun 2019 20:42:05 +0000 https://tuliptreepreschool.com/?p=22014#comment-7221 This is an activity that all of the children will get to participate in, Caity! It is mostly determined by arrival time, as the walk has to start early in order for us be back for lunch. The children who will go most often will be the ones who arrive before 840, but everyone will definitely get to go!
