positive phrases for preschoolers

If talking kindly to plants helps them grow, imagine what talking kindly to humans, and more specifically Pre-schoolers, can do. The preschool years are a critical time for children’s emerging sense of self, and the way they are spoken to can have a significant impact on the way that they see themselves. As teachers, the way we speak to children and the words we choose are vitally important; we must seek to use words that enhance children’s sense of self rather than tear it down (positive phrases).

Here are a few ways to turn routine and correction into opportunities to validate, teach and connect. Positive phrases can make all the difference!
