Message from your teachers!
Hello Parents! Happy Spring!
As we are getting more sunshine, we hope you and your children are safely spending more time outside. There are so many changes to notice in the spring. The trees are budding and blossoming and the birds are busy. One resource below describes shadow walks. We hope you find the other two resource articles interesting and helpful as you remain at home with your children. As always, we are here for you!

SCISSOR SKILLS PRACTICE LION CRAFT
Scissor skills are an essential life skill, but learning and practicing them can be tricky! The best way to start is with plastic scissors and play dough, but once children can cut paper, then it’s time for some activities that help build these skills like this scissor skills practice lion craft.
Gather your materials. You will need three sheets of colored construction paper, glue, a crayon, scissors, and two googly eyes. Or you can draw the eyes.
Start by drawing a circle on a sheet of paper. Cut out.
Using that cutout circle draw two circles on the 2nd sheet of construction paper. It should look like a donut. Cut the large circle out and leave the circle drawn inside.
Cut the large circle out and leave the circle drawn inside.
Using your scissors make cuts from the edge of the circle to the line of the inner circle.
Glue on to the 3rd piece of paper.
Draw a face on the small circle. Add googly eyes or draw your own eyes.
Add to the center of the cut paper to create a Lion face.

This can also work as a matching activity! Have your child sort and match socks together after they’ve been cleaned. They can even learn to fold them together! After the socks are matched and rolled, your child can play some basketball by tossing the rolled socks back into the basket!
