Have you noticed how often you are telling instead of asking ? When we are asking instead of telling, we are giving our children the opportunity to think and feel capable. If you find yourself telling instead of asking, stop for a minute and think about how you can change the command to a curiosity question.
Here are some ideas, feel free to post them around the house to help you remember how to use curiosity questions:
¿Cómo puedes resolver el problema con tu hermano? /
How can you solve the problem with your brother?
¿Qué necesitas hacer para que tus juguetes estén en su lugar? / What do you need to do to clean up your toys?
¿Cuáles son las reglas para jugar con el agua? /
What are the expectation to play with the water?

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.
