Ms. Irene’s Positive Affirmations at Prairie
By Valerie Kelly
One of our very own teachers over at Catalyst Kids – Prairie in Sacramento was recently featured on Good Day Sacramento. Ms. Irene has published several books about maintaining positive thoughts and she recently had a book signing! It all started off with the children making handwritten positive affirmations and placing them into glass jars. Ms. Irene then turned them into printed books for the children to read as well as coloring books.
“We never know what they’re going through at home, we talk to each child and we each build a personal relationship with them. The kids come in and some days aren’t always easy for some of them, so we talk about how they feel and we try and change from a negative to a positive.”
“We’re going to have bad days, we’re going to have things that come up, but affirmations can help us and help us speak positivity to ourselves.”
