✨💛This year we organized a food drive. We discussed what a food drive is with the children, and all of the classes worked hard to decorate the box. Our community really stepped up and donated so many goods!! We will be donating all of this this week to Hope Gardens, a transitional living and permanent supportive housing facility for women and children.💛✨

🍂🍁✨It is always a pleasure for us to welcome Ben Hale and The Eagle Spirit Dancers! Ben and his family have been coming to our Autumn gathering for over 20 years now. We’ve seen his family grow, and he’s seen our community grow and change over the years. It’s one of our very special and favorite traditions here at The Neighborhood School✨🍁🍂


✨How do we teach math and science at Neighborhood School? We make it exciting! We believe that the best way to learn is by doing! Today we dissected a pumpkin and roasted the seeds!✨

❔✨Why? What? How?✨❔

❔”Why did my child act this way?”
When we keep in mind that our children are tiny humans with brains that are not fully developed, we can understand that often our children will “misbehave”, act out”, whatever you want to call it because they were hungry, tired, impulsive, angry, or didn’t have the proper means/skills to communicate their feelings.

❔”What lesson do I want to teach in this moment?”
Remember- the goal of discipline is to teach. What lesson is needed? Manners? Impulse control? Importance of sharing? The list goes on?

❔”How can I best teach this lesson?”
Consider your child’s age and development. Did natural consequences already teach the lesson for you? Is there a loving way you can approach the lesson? Ideally we’re looking to avoid a harsh, one size fits all consequence.
