Message from your teachers!
Welcome to this week’s learning resource, everyone! We have a very special announcement!! We are so excited to welcome back Teacher Margie to the team!! Teacher Margie has been out but is back and ready to get back to working with your families! J Welcome back, Teacher Margie!
As always, in the links below, you can find some resources that may be helpful to you. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your teacher! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
As we mentioned last week, our four program-wide expectations are Be Courageous, Be Curious, Be Compassionate, Be A Community. This week 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
Activities from Teacher Bea
Big Box Basketball! An easy-peasy way to release some energy and practice tossing skills!
- Big cardboard box (or a laundry basket!)
- Small balls to toss (if you don’t have these, you can use rolled-up socks!_
- Set up the box somewhere in an open space and place the balls nearby.
- Demonstrate to your child how to toss a ball into the box. You can support them as they try this if they are still practicing this skill.
- Once all the balls have been tossed in the box, you can repeat the activity! You can even have them toss a certain number, or a certain color – have fun with it!
Language / Literacy
Activities from Teacher Suzanne
- Listen to or read the story, “Spring Senses” by Leona Locke*
Click the link below for the book, “Spring Senses.” You can click on the microphone icon and the book will be read to you as many times as you like or you can read it to your child yourself.
- After reading the book one time, you can listen or read again. Ask your child, “What did you like about the story? Is there anything outside that matches pictures in the story?”
- Walk outside or go for a short walk around the block and explore the outside. When you come back, ask your child to draw about what they saw. Talk about colors, smells, and how the air felt. (Remember you wear your mask!)
- Use crayons or markers, white paper or any paper you have. Write down words the child tells you about their drawing.
*This book developed by Unite for Literacy
Listen! Look! Feel! Spring is all around.

Activities from Teacher Margie
Springtime Scavenger Hunt!
The weather has been so warm and full of sunshine! If you and your family decide to take a nature walk together, FIRST please remember to wear a mask! Next, take this list with you and your child can look for these things! They can even count how many things they found, and identify the colors and textures of what they find! (P.S., it’s okay if they don’t find everything on the list!)
