Childhood is full of new experiences. Whether going to the doctor, traveling on an airplane, or visiting a relative’s house for the first time, talking about and planning for new experiences can help children manage their fears and expectations.
In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on using play to better understand feelings, develop imagination, and feel proud of themselves for facing a new experience.
Watch the videos about New Experiences and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children face new experiences such as a trip to the doctor.
Explore further the topic of New Experiences in your classroom with the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity.
Share the Family Activity document with the families of your students, so they can continue the conversation at home.
