As we mentioned over the last few weeks, our four Program Wide Expectations are Be Courageous, Be Curious, Be Compassionate, Be a Community. First, we focused on how our children can be courageous. Over the next few weeks, we will focus on how we can Be a Community.  

We are a community when….

We are kind to one another 

We take care of one another

We embrace our differences and cultures 

We share what we know and care about 

We solve problems together 

Social Emotional

Kids Yoga !

Try out some of these awesome stretches with your child! Saying these phrases out loud as you do the stretches can also be a good way to help your child engage in positive self-talk, and can encourage them to always do their best! 🙂

Math / Science

Science – texture: Make a simple texture chart with your child. Texture describes the feel or appearance of an object or the material an object is made of. Write texture words like smooth, bumpy, rough in separate columns. Begin hunting for textures on your list. When you find something, draw a picture and/or write the word of the object in the correct column.

Problem Solving

I have who has

This game is a part of the Tools of the Mind curriculum. You can start by doing colors and move on with uppercase letters, beginning sounds or whichever category your child is familiar with. There are two decks: one deck for the child and the deck for the guardian. All the color cards have colors on both sides. One person goes first by picking any color from their deck and says “I have *color*, who has *color*? once the card flips over. Find the color that has been flipped and see if your child or you have it. Continue to say “I have *color*, who has *color?” so that your child recognizes colors.

Boats in the water

Living in Seattle we have the amazing opportunity to be surrounded by water. In those bodies of water we often see boats, look at this video below of Teacher Dave talking about some of the boats we see. Use the password we have previously given you or ask us for it again.
