But, do you know that giving and receiving compliments helps to decrease stressors and fosters a positive atmosphere? Here are some compliments in both Spanish and English. You can use them this week, taking the time to model and practice kindness, in Spanish. You can cut them and post them around the house to remind you to say a compliment.
“Agradezco que hayas puesto tus trastes en el fregadero” / "I appreciate how you put your dirty dishes in the sink“

Pasitos is an eco-friendly, bilingual community based on learning and fun. Through a play based Reggio inspired curriculum, children gain the necessary literacy skills to make them successful in both Spanish and English. At the same time, they build social and emotional skills in working with peers and the maestras. Together these skills help open their minds and language capabilities. Teachers interact with the children to build strong academics and positive social skills.
