Just as Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina are learning how to go to school and be away from their families, the children in your classroom are learning these same skills. The separation may be easier for some kids and more difficult for others, but having a plan in place for gradual acclimation and strategies the children can employ throughout the day can help children learn to be more independent and remember that grownups do come back.

In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on feelings about separation and independence, memory skills, developing self-control, and expressing feelings.

Watch the videos about Separation and think about how you could use them as a part of the classroom activities or throughout the year as children work on being away from their families and remembering. 

Explore further the topic of Separation in your classroom with the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity. 

Share the Family Activitiy document with the families of your students, so they can continue the conversation at home.
