Tools of the Mind Curriculum for Preschoolers

The Mendon Upton Regional School District is holding its preschool enrollment in January. According to school officials, one thing that sets the district preschools apart from others is the Tools of the Mind Curriculum. A comprehensive curriculum that meets all state and national standards, Tools of the Mind focuses on self-regulation of emotions, physical behavior and social interactions.

Students learn the ability to stay on task, ignore distractions, remember on purpose, hold two strategies in mind at the same time and develop self-discipline. The self-regulation is taught through a variety of activities that make learning a pleasure. One example is called making collections in which students work in a cooperative partnered mathematics activity taking turns counting and checking using one-to-one correspondence.

This is the fifth year the district has been using Tools of the Mind and all staff is trained in the curriculum. The staff explained that this is a progressive program and new materials are always being added.

For those interested in the preschool program, the Memorial Preschool Open House in Upton will be January 14, 2011 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and the Clough Open House will be on the same day from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in Mendon. Anyone interested in the Pre-K program is welcome to visit with their child on that day. Additionally, there will be an informational meeting regarding the Tools of the Mind curriculum for parents on January 10 from 6 to 7 p.m. at Memorial and on January 12 at Clough also from 6 to 7 p.m.

Registration for the Mendon-Upton Integrated Preschool Lottery will be the week of January 24-28, 2011. Registration tickets will be available in both school offices. The lottery will be drawn the week of February 7, 2011. For more information please contact the Preschool Coordinator, Carol Suffredini at 508-529-1020 ext. 109.
