We look forward to seeing all the children in the near future. As a reminder, our live sessions are on Tuesdays 11-11:30am and on Thursday 1-1:30pm.

Listen and watch together with your child the book “Lucy’s Mask” https://video.link/w/7Rf2b After reading the story, ask open-ended questions to your child about how your child can be a heroine or a hero, and the things they are able to do to protect themselves and others? Dress your child with a cape and a real mask to pretend saving others.

Shape match game

On a piece of paper draw a variety of shapes in a variety of sizes and make sure you have two shapes that are exactly the same. Then with crayons or markers find the two shapes that are the same and color them the same color. This activity allows them to focus on a few things. One is the shape another is the size. The concept being different and same or big and little. You can change the focus of matching what is same and focus on the shape by coloring all triangles the same color regardless of the size.
