Each Tuesday beginning on 3/24/2020 you will be picking up or receiving by bus a weekly packet of work for your child. These packets will be filled with different activities for your child based on our curriculum. Please know that this is very new to us all, and normally we would not be doing this many worksheets. A lot of our classroom work and learning is all hands on and we are using many different manipulatives daily.
Different ways to help with hands on at home is to have your child build towers, count the blocks, break them apart into different towers. Anything they can build with Legos or big blocks will be great. We were discussing the Woodlands habitat in our ELA module, so they could build their own versions of the Woodlands.
Playdough is another very good hands on activity and will help with muscle growth. Kids can help wash dishes, or even help making dinner. I know some parents are not big on scissors, however if your child has them it would be beneficial for them practice cutting. I had my own two boys at the table cutting coupons when they were younger, that way they had lines to follow and felt like they were doing very important work. Just an option of course.
Again if you have any questions or concerns during this time please don't hesitate to reach out. I will do my best with the information that I have to help.
Finally, please send your child my love as well as love from Mrs. Youngs. We already miss them terribly.
