I just read an interesting article that I thought I would share about the importance of teaching self-regulation. Here is the link if you would like to read the full article: self-regulation article
Preschool programs that teach self-regulation skills may help boost student achievement in math and other subjects, according to a recent study published in Early Childhood Research Quarterly. Researchers found that such lessons produced even better results among disadvantaged students. Self-regulation, or self-control, is particularly difficult for preschool age children, but this skill can be taught. This is exciting news since this is something that we are already working on in our preschool program!
