Since the weather is getting warmer, I thought I would find some interactive scavenger hunts to do outside, as well as in your own home. Each scavenger hunt also provides discussion questions for you to ask your child while finding the items. I have sent an email with the attached scavenger hunts.
I hope everyone is staying healthy. In addition
to the resources I emailed last week, I have compiled a list of some movement
videos for your child to do while learning. Please let me know if there is
anything else I can do to help you, your child, or family.
Here are some movement website and videos your
child does in the classroom that they love to do:
Go Noodle is a movement website that shows many
videos to get your body moving. It is free and no need to sign up! Click on the
“Get Started Now” in the upper right corner, then click on Familes “Play Now”.
Scroll down to Channels and start exploring.
Some of the ones we do in class are:
Channel- “Kidz Bop”
Whoop (There It Is)
Channel- “Koo Koo Kanga Roo!”
Get Yo Body Movin’
This or That
Pop See Ko
You Tube has a lot of educational videos for
you child to watch and learn at the same time!
Some of the letter and letter sounds ones we
watch in class are:
All Schools will now be closed THROUGH April 13. We were planning to return that day, but now are scheduled to return Tuesday, April 14.
