Midwinter Recess

School Closed

February 15th-19th

(Monday through Friday).

 Suggestions for success

  • Be on the lookout for shapes. Discuss the shapes you see. For a challenge, ask your child how many sides the shape has. (Example: A triangle has three sides. Two triangles would have six sides).
  • Use magnetic letters on a refrigerator or cake pan to spell words.

          Use fun writing tools such as markers, gel pens, crayons, pencils, etc.

              Let your child create a shopping list before going to the store. 

  • When writing, have your child begin to use transitions (first, second, third, last, next, etc.)

          When reading, don’t immediately tell an unknown word to your child. Instead, ask them to:

1.      sound out the word

2.   break the word into parts

           3.   try a different vowel sound (long/short)

             4.   use illustrations for clues

             5.   skip the word, re-read sentence, and go

                   back - what word would make sense?
