    Hi everyone! I hope you are all healthy and keeping busy during this time away from school and your activities. I also hope you have been enjoying the stories, messages and information on the Elementary Center & Llewellyn's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MinersvilleElementaryReadingConnection/. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet! 

    As nice as it is to be spending so much time with our family, sometimes that means we can get on each other's nerves at times. What can you do when this happens? Maybe spend some time in another room of the house or outside doing something you enjoy.  I love to read to relax. Coloring is another great way to calm down. Maybe you like to build with Legos or make slime. Play a board game with your family or use your imagination and make up your own game. Going for a walk with the person you are upset with is a great way to relieve stress and clear your heads. Check out the Rocketkids link "Conflict to Resolution in 4 Steps" under the links on the Social/Emotional tab. 

    Remember, I am available by email if you need any help. I miss all of you very much!
