Message from Teacher Christina:

This week we will continue our camping theme. Help your child with spatial skills with these fun map activities.

I know many of us are having fun swimming during hot days. There are many things to remember to stay safe while having fun in the water. Click the link below to find some great reminders from John Hopkins.

Math / Science

Make a chart on a piece of paper. In the left column write objects and in the right column you will write the number of steps it took to get from one place to the other. Point out two objects and say “how many steps does it take to get from ___ to ___?” Have your child count aloud with each step. Then help them to record the number of steps in the right column. Below is an example. You can choose any objects you want. You can pretend your home has turned into the great outdoors. Pretend your sofa in a giant rock, your refrigerator is a mountain or your rug is a lake!

Objects number of steps
couch to table 6 steps
bed to door 3 steps
wall to wall 12 steps
fridge to sink 5 steps

Language / Literacy
