I’m thinking about your children this morning and want you to know that I feel very honored to have the opportunity to partner with you, their first teacher, in helping them grow and learn.

LET’s DRAW CIRCLES!
Watch this video to see our friends at KidsDraw4Fun draw circles.
Now get paper and crayons and practice your own circles. Parents: Help your child start at the top and as you make the circle say “around and close” as you bring the crayon back up to the top and close the circle.
Gather a pile of 20 dried beans or small rocks. Practice counting and making groups.
Count all the beans. Parents help your child go slowly and say one number for each bean.
(If she/he is ready) Can you make groups with 3 beans in each group? How many groups of 3 beans did you make?
Movement / Play
BE A HELPER! Ask mom if you can help sweep the kitchen floor or wash some dishes. Maybe you can pick up toys or help clear the table after a meal.
Parents: this is the perfect stage in your child’s development to help them build the habit of helping; having small responsibilities each day so they can experience the sense of accomplishment as well as the joy of helping others!
