In the Brown Bears, children learn how to adapt to a classroom routine and follow a daily schedule. They learn how to make choices for themselves and take responsibility for completing their individual work. Not only do they learn valuable self-help skills, but children also receive classroom jobs, learning what it means to help the greater good and be a part of a community. At group times, the children learn how to listen and participate appropriately. Most importantly, Brown Bears learn how to be a good friend! They learn how to wait patiently for a turn and how to share toys and materials with their classmates. The children learn how to stand up for themselves by using their words when they come into conflict with their peers. Teachers work with the children as facilitators to help them learn how to work through the conflict resolution process together. Finally, Brown Bears learn how to work as a team!
