Message from Teacher Dheko.

Hello families. I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. I am so glad to hear that some of you got your vaccines. If you need any information about the vaccine, I am happy to pass that along to you. We will get through this by looking out for one another. We got this and we are almost there!

Please continue to use the tools of the mind website. I notice in my home visit sessions most of you have nothing but positive things to say about the activities that the website provides.

Math / Science

I Spy Classification: First model for your child by saying “ I spy something that is round and flat” (clock) or “I spy something that has 4 legs that is smaller than a car” (dog). This activity helps your child figure out how to recognize an object’s attributes and sort objects into groups with similar attributes. Being able to group by number, shape, or measurement helps develop your child’s mathematical thinking. Grouping by color, texture, or hardness will introduce your child to scientific classification.


Sorting: Invite your child to help you with some household tasks that involve sorting. For example, he could help you organize clean laundry, put away dishes, or straighten toys. As you sort, continue to talk through the process with your child. For example, “all the round plates go here” or “put the white socks together in this drawer”.  Use attributes like length, color, and texture to explain why things get put together.

Language / Literacy

Read ABC dentist: A colorful alphabet book with medical vocabulary, starting with A for Appointment and B for Bandage, and ending with Z for…a Zillion times better!
