Sometimes I get so focused on the tasks at hand that I forget that it doesn’t have to be so serious. Does that happen to you, too? You’re so focused on moving through the things that have to get done that playfulness gets pushed to the side?
When we bring playfulness into transitions it can be an awesome way to connect with children and lead to collaboration. It turns off the alarm center in the brain, allowing them to feel safe and secure.
What have you found helpful during transitions?

Such beautiful, heartwarming words
I love you.
I hope you know that.
But I’m so small and I can’t say it yet.
So the tears will come when I need you, and sometimes I feel yours too.
I know you ache, but I ache for you.
Maybe we feel the same?
When it’s dark around me and your face comes into view,
I know everything will be ok.
Do you know that too?
I just want to tell you,
I love you.
But I can’t just yet.
So I’ll stretch out my arms instead, I’ll protest and fuss when you put me down.
When all I want is your smell, my comfort, a wholeness.
Because you smell like the two of us, as if we were one.
You’re all I know.
All I need.
I can’t wait to know more about the you before me, but right now it’s, ‘us’.
One day I will tell you,
I love you.
When I gaze up at you, as soon as I find your eyes, my whole world is in focus.
Maybe, we can both slow down together.
Orbit around each other, like we have nowhere to be.
As if this will be no longer.
As if my smallness won’t last.
I wish this moment could last forever, and maybe one day you will too.
These days are ours, as you whisper to me,
I love you.
When you kiss me goodnight.
As I fall asleep.
As we breathe each other in.
When I wake, again and again, searching for you.
While you’re searching for you too.
While we find each other.
I know it is constant.
But you are my constant.
Because these days filled with nothing are everything to me.
And soon my head won’t rest on your chest,
soon my cries will become words instead.
By watching you, my lips start to move,
the only feeling I’ve ever known, in a voice that feels new.
I’ll smile up at you and say the words,
“I love you too”.

"A few weeks ago, I started the 'I need' box in my class, a way for my students to ask for help without having to come directly to me. They write their needs on a card and leave it in the box.
The first week, two boys let me know about a bullying situation. We got it taken care of. The next week, I changed the format a little and started having EVERY student put a card in the box every day. They didn’t have to write on it, but every student visits the box daily.
Since then, I’ve had a plethora of 'needs' submitted. They range from specific supply needs, seat changes, special handshakes when entering class, after school help, bullying situations, and even hugs.
What’s even better is students are starting to come to me directly with issues/challenges they are having bypassing the box completely. I’ve been teaching middle school for 15 years, and I can honestly say this is the best thing I’ve ever done to reach my kids this early in the school year."

You know what's better than saying "this food is good for you"? Tell them what foods do in their body! Why do I keep sharing this message? Because we keep selling our kids short labeling foods and good/bad, healthy/unhealthy. Here are some examples of messages I like for different ages:
For 2-3yo kids I usually break it down by color. Although it's not 100% accurate, it’s a good framework to get started. ⠀⠀
❤️ Red: gives you a strong heart⠀⠀
🧡 Orange: helps you see in the dark⠀⠀
💛Yellow: helps your body heal cuts⠀⠀
💚Green: gives you super powers to fight off sickness⠀⠀
💜💙Blue and Purple: Give you a strong brain⠀⠀
💟White: gives you energy⠀⠀
For 4s and 5s you can start being more specific - like carrots and sweet potatoes help you be able to see in the dark. Clementines help your skin heal cuts. Broccoli helps your night vision, your skin heal, AND your bones be strong.⠀
For 4s/5s and 6s you can introduce the idea that some foods do a lot of things in their bodies and some foods do a few things.⠀
For 6s and 7s you can introduce the concept of vitamins and minerals - tell them HOW carrots protect their night vision (via vitamin A). Learn about the body.⠀
For 8s and 9s - learn even more about different things in foods. ⠀
And so on.⠀
All the while, model the way you want your kids to eat in your home and serve them the balanced diet you want them to eat. That's more powerful than anything you could ever tell them.⠀
If you need help getting your child to try new foods, my free child eating guide 🔥 From Stress to Success - 4 Ways to Help Your Child Eat Better without Losing Your Mind is in my bio .eat.in.color⠀
