Teacher: Laura Martin Fall 2021 Volume 4
WEEK: October 4, 2021
I am enjoying this time of us getting to know each other! Our class is still growing with some being added just this week, so if we have not spoken yet, I will be calling you soon.
Please be aware that well child checks, dental visits and immunization records need to be current for each student before that student can attend in-person learning. If you have questions about that please contact me so we can discuss it together.
We do not yet have a date set for a return to in-person learning but our administration and many others are working hard to make sure the building and all of our procedures are ready for a safe return to the classroom. I will keep you posted as we get more information.
OUR CLASS SESSION THIS WEEK WILL BE 11:00 – 11:30 ON THURSDAY OCTOBER 14. Watch your email for the Teams link Thursday morning!
I look forward to visiting with you this week!

Movement / Play
GAMES: FAMILY HIDE AND SEEK
Try a family game of HIDE and SEEK. This is a great game indoors or out. One person covers their eyes and counts while the others hide.
CHANGE IT UP: The one covering her eyes doesn’t have to only count numbers! Other ideas are:
- Sing the ABC song two times (with eyes closed)
- Clap their hands ___ times. 50? 30? 20? (with eyes closed)
- Do 50 jumping jacks (eyes open for safety, turn back to other players)
