Deep Dive Questions for Children and their Grown Ups
It’s always helpful to talk about important topics from each episode with your child. Here are some Deep Dive Questions to help children and their grown ups debrief after listening to this week’s episode.
- Do you like dressing up for Halloween? What has been your favorite costume, and why?
- Have you ever had a disagreement with your friends like Megan the Mermaid did? What did you do? How did you and your friends resolve, or move past, your conflict?
- If you could dress up in any costume with your friends, what would you dress up as? Why?
Here’s What We Practiced This Week
We Go To School Song: This catchy song is a great way to bring a routine or sense of adventure as you transition to your school day.

Active Listening, one of the 10 Emogers from Move This World: The 10 Emogers are emotional management strategies we can use whenever we feel sad, worried, frustrated, overly excited, or any time we want to focus and calm down. Active Listening reminds us to listen with our ears, eyes, and bodies when other people are communicating with us.
Meet in the Middle, one of the 10 Emogers from Move This World: Meet in the Middle inspires us to work together and compromise to overcome obstacles.
