Social/Emotional learning is an important component to
success in school. Preschoolers at Scottsbluff Bear Cub Preschool are
taught the Second Step Curriculum for Social/Emotional learning and includes
topics such as joining groups and handling strong feelings (such as anger or
frustration). The school rules mimic those of the other schools in
the district and feature the three main rules of Be Responsible, Be Respectful,
and Be Safe. As staff encourage students in these areas Paw Prints are
given out to reinforce skills being taught and expected at the preschool.
The Paw Prints are placed on the wall so families can see all the good choices
our youngest students are making while attending Scottsbluff Bear Cub
Preschool. Once a week, each class selects 3 students as Bear Cubs
of the week and the office takes a picture for display on the TV in the foyer
of the school. This way we acknowledge and honor our families and
students for working hard to learn how to conduct themselves responsibly,
respectfully, and safely.
