    We hope all of our students and their families are staying safe and healthy. For the beginning of the school year we will meet virtually using Schoology and our class webpage.  
    Below are listed activities that your child can work on daily for extra practice.
    *writing their name
    *recognizing letters A to Z
    *reconize numbers 1 to 10 or 1 to 20
    *look for shapes and colors around the house
    *read a book and ask them where the front and back cover are, point to a picture, point to a word. Ask what the author does and what the illustrator does.
    *allow time for reading books together, crafts/art time, and pretend play 
    *if you have scissors, practice cutting skills. You can have your child cut out coupons from grocery store ads. 
    *practice zipping your coat or hoodie

    *physical exercise: go to YouTube and type in gonoodle. There are a bunch of free dances and exercises on this website. www.gonoodle.com is a free website if you would like to sign up. We use it daily in our classroom.
