Early HeartSmarts® Ages 3-6
Item # 5335
For Classroom Or Home Use
Give young children a strong foundation for future learning
What young children learn before their formal education profoundly affects their performance in school and the rest of their lives. Research shows acquiring social and emotional skills early is essential for success in today’s classrooms. Early HeartSmarts is fun and engaging and was scientifically developed for children ages 3-6 so they could learn fun, simple, but powerful skills that build a strong foundation for their future years of learning. Children learn about working together in small groups, problem-solving, creativity, emotion self-regulation and the importance of the heart as Early HeartSmarts eases the transition from the home to the classroom environment.
Piloted and reviewed by preschool teachers, administrators and early childhood experts, Early HeartSmarts guides young children through several key goals:
Recognizing and understanding basic emotional states
Skills for strengthening expression of positive feelings
Skills for improving peer relations
Skills for developing problem-solving skills
Program Materials Include:
The instructor manual provides all the essential information to successfully implement the program. Each of the 11 lessons is organized with purpose and materials, quick steps, scripted lessons, recommended books, parent connection, music lyrics, and support activities. Song lyrics are featured in the last section for easy access.
A short, narrated power point that introduces core concepts, skills, and materials
Besides heart beat sounds, there are six beautifully sung songs and an instrumental version of Little Wheel Turning in My Heart.
Anatomical Model Heart:
The squishy, anatomically correct heart serves as a physical model for conversation about the functions of the heart.
Bear Heart Puppet:
The puppet plays a crucial role as facilitator and teacher in the program. Use a normal, pleasant voice when speaking through the puppet in lessons. The surface of the puppet can be washed with cold water.
Six cards showing typical age-related issues are presented to children over three lessons to help activate problem as an optional choice.
