April 19 – 23 Learning Resource Vol. 19
Message from your teachers!
We hope the warmer weather and sunshine has helped you to be outside more and enjoy playing and learning outdoors. It is a good time to fly kites and discover animals in the ponds. Of course, safety first!
As we mentioned last week, our four program-wide expectations are Be Courageous, Be Curious, Be Compassionate, Be A Community. First we will be focusing on how children can be courageous.
Children are courageous when they:
- Try new things for the first time
- Ask questions
- Make a mistake and try again
- Share their own feelings
- Stand up for what is right
In this week’s Learning Resource, you’ll find an activity to help your child learn about Being Courageous! Let us know how it went!

Movement / Play
Number and movement game.
- Use a long piece of tape and place it at the end of one room to create a finish line. You can also do this outside on the sidewalk or draw a line with side walk chalk.
- Use number cards or draw numbers on small pieces of paper from 1 to 10 and place in a small bowl or basket.
- Have your child choose a number from the basket or bowl and take the number of steps on the paper.
- Repeat until he or she gets to the finish line. After getting to the line, he or she can choose a number again. This time they can hop on one foot or jump the number of times
Art / Writing
Below is a Video to show you a fun way to create make believe Binoculars. Real Binoculars help to see up close when you are out exploring an animal, insect, or just something in nature.

Below is the safe link video to the story, “Are you My Mother.” This story is about a baby bird who is lost. After viewing the story, you and your child can draw the characters in the story and you can ask your child which one came first? It is fun to read more than once and have your child try to remember what happened first, second, last. You can ask about how the bird felt and have your child draw emotions. Just use paper or marker and crayons.
