Here's a little activity I do each year with my froggy friends. I read, The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper. We then discuss things that we can do and how we had to practice, practice, practice to master that particular skill. There are so many new skills to be learned in Kindergarten so whenever a child is having difficulty with a new task, I tell my him to think of the little train in the story and say, "I Think I Can! I Think I Can!" as a reminder not to give up! This usually gives my little froggy friends enough encouragement to keep on trying.
