Message from Teacher Dave & Teacher Jessica:

Did you know your Seattle Public Library card can help you get free admission to museums in Seattle? You and your family can enjoy exhibits on aviation, nature, science, and industry – all for free! You can reserve one pass per week with your library card and each pass includes at least two adult tickets.

What to expect at your COVID-19 vaccine appointment

Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is an important part of our efforts to slow and eventually stop the coronavirus spread.

When it’s your turn to get vaccinated, here’s what to expect.

Plan for 2 doses, spaced a few weeks apart.

The vaccines currently authorized for use require 2 doses. That means after you get your first shot, you’ll need to get a second shot 3 to 4 weeks later. The 2 doses you receive must be from the same vaccine manufacturer; you won’t be able to mix and match.

If you are interested in learning more about what to expect, please use the link below.

Our four program-wide expectations are Be CourageousBe CuriousBe CompassionateBe A Community. This week we will focus on how children can Be A Community.

We are a community when we….

      Are kind to one another 

      Take care of one another

      Embrace our differences and cultures 

      Share what we know and care about 

      Solve problems together

 In this week’s Learning Resource, you’ll find an activity to help your child learn about Being A Community! Let us know how it went!

Social Emotional

Be a community 

For this activity, write a letter to one of your friends you have made over the course of the year. You can mention things like “I hope you are having a nice day” or “You do a great job learning at school”

Be sure to include your name on the letter. When they are completed, bring them to class next week so you can have the chance to share them with friends.

Math / Science

Tangram Animal Shapes

Here’s a fun way to help increase your child’s thinking skills while also strengthening their fine motor skills! Here are some examples of animals your child can make with the tangram shapes you may have at home. Use the tangram shapes to make the animal, and have fun with it!

Number Recognition Movements – Play a simple counting game with a deck of cards or numbers you write out on a paper and hold up for your child to see. Start with numbers 1-5 for this week. When you say the number aloud together, ask your child to count to that number and then do that number of jumping jacks, push-ups, hops, or wiggles.

Language / Literacy
