Free Meals Over Summer Break!

Students
Dearborn will continue offering free student
meals over summer
ستواصل مدارس ديربورن تقديم وجبات مجانية للطالب خالل فصل
الصيف.
Free student meal distributions will continue throughout
the summer at seven Dearborn Public School sites.
The district has been distributing the free grab-and-go
meals since shortly after the Governor ordered schools to close
in March. That program is slated to end on June 10, which is
scheduled to be the last full day of school in the District.
However, Dearborn Schools received permission to
continue serving free meals through the summer under the U.S.
Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.
The summer meal distribution will be once a week on
Wednesdays starting June 17. Food will be handed out every
Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon at the seven locations. Each
bag will contain seven breakfasts and seven lunches for each
child under the age of 18. Each child will also get a half gallon
of milk.
The distribution locations will continue to be Fordson,
Dearborn and Edsel Ford high schools, Woodworth and Smith
middle schools, Salina Intermediate, and McCollough/Unis
School.
One person can pick up food for any child living in the
home. The child does not need to attend that school.
The District has recently been providing 65,000 grab-andgo meals a week for children in the community. Those meals,
which include lunch and breakfast, are funded through the
U.S.D.A. School Lunch Program. Dearborn used that program
to offer free lunch and breakfast to all its kindergarten through
12th grade students before the school closure in March.
“We know our families appreciate the student meal
distributions, and we are glad to be able to continue to offer
children these meals during the summer months,” said Food
Service Director Jeff Murphy.
سيستمر توزيع وجبات الطعام الطالب المجانية طوال فصل
الصيف في سبعة مواقع من مدارس ديربورن العامة.
تقوم المقاطعة بتوزيع وجبات الطعام المجانية منذ فترة وجيزة
بعد أن أمر الحاكم بإغالق المدارس في مارس. من المقرر أن
ينتهي هذا البرنامج في ١٠ يونيو ، والذي من المقرر أن يكون
آخر يوم دراسي كامل في المنطقة.
ومع ذلك ، تلقت مدارس ديربورن اإلذن بمواصلة تقديم وجبات
مجانية خالل الصيف بموجب برنامج خدمة الطعام الصيفي
التابع لوزارة الزراعة األمريكية.
سيتم توزيع الوجبات الصيفية مرة واحدة في األسبوع أيام
األربعاء ابتداًء من ١٧ حزيران/ يونيو. وسيتم تسليم الطعام كل
يوم أربعاء من الساعة ١٠ صبا ًحا حتى الظهر في المواقع
السبعة. ستحتوي كل حقيبة على سبع وجبات إفطار وسبع
وجبات غداء لكل طفل دون سن الثامنة عشرة. كما سيحصل
كل طفل على نصف غالون من الحليب.
ستستمر مواقع التوزيع في المدارس التاليه: المدراس
الثانويه، فوردسن و ديربورن و ادسيل فورد- والمدارس
المتوسطة وودورث، سميث و سلينا إنترمديت مكولوى /
يونس.
يمكن لشخص واحد أن ياتي الى أي من المدراس المسماة
أعاله وأخد وجبات الطعام ألي من أوالدكم الذين يعيشون
معكم في المنزل.
قدمت مدارس ديربورن مؤخًرا ٦٥٫٠٠٠ وجبة طعام سريعة
لطالبها. يتم تمويل هذه الوجبات ، والتي تشمل الغداء والفطور
، من خالل A.USD .برنامج غداء المدرسة. استخدمت ديربورن
هذا البرنامج لتقديم وجبة غداء ووجبة فطور مجانية لجميع
الطالب من صف الروضة حتى الصف الثاني عشر .
قال مدير خدمة الغذاء جيف مورفي: “نحن نعلم أن عائالتنا
تقدر توزيع وجبات الطالب ، ويسعدنا أن نتمكن من االستمرار
في تقديم هذه الوجبات لطالب خالل أشهر الصيف”.
Parental Partnership with the School is Crucial Because:
Educators + Parents + Students = Excellent Students and Successful Community
الشراكة بين أولياء االمور والمدرسة أمر في بالغ األهمية ألن: المعلمين + أولياء االمور + الطالب = طالب مميزين ومجتمع ناجح

Transition for Next Year!

Hello Families,

Wishing you all a happy health a fun summer break!

Here are some tasks to work on with your child to make sure they are ready for school in the fall <3 Since we called everyone last week and discussed the transition, we felt that we would share this refresher on our blog. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further please let me know!

Talking to Your Children about Germs, Wearing a Mask and Covid-19

I have included some links and topics to discuss with your children going into the fall school year. If we are in the buildings in the fall it is likely your children will have to wear masks as well as the teachers and staff. Please prepare your children for this, otherwise it can be a bit scary/overwhelming if they do not know what to expect.

Tips for Teaching Children about Wearing a Mask

  • Practice wearing a mask in your house before you go in public
  • Talk with your children about how it feels around their ears and that it might be warm to wear. Let them know it is normal and they will still be able to breathe.
  • Help your child get used to the idea that other people will also be wearing masks by making some for stuffed animals or dolls in your home to wear.
  • Use a simple story to explain the importance of the masks. Use the story to remind your children that the other people wearing masks are doing their part to keep you safe, so we don’t need to be scared or anxious when we see people wearing masks in public.

This will be the final activity post of the school year! I will continue to post resources next week! Mrs. Ahmed or myself will be calling you today or tomorrow to do a final check in.

Literacy and Writing

Think back on our preschool year… what is your favorite memory? Playing outside on the playground/snow, going to the gym and riding bikes, making new friends, going to the Science Center, having the Critter Guy and firefighters visit our classroom? Whatever it is…draw a picture and write about it!

Literacy and Math

Watch the book below! Think of some things you may do and learn in Kindergarten! Make a list of three things…challenge 5 things!

WORK/PLAY TIME

5 to 10 MinutesPlan for Work Time (Playtime):  Build your child’s ability to organize their time by having them make a “plan” with you about what they would like to play with.  Children do this everyday with us at school.  It helps children learn to organize their thoughts. 
They will tell you what they are planning to do/want to play with/how they will use toys at home. (“I want to work with blocks-I am going to build a tower and knock it down.”)التخطيط لوقت العمل ( وقت اللعب): ساعد طفلك على بناء مهارة تنظيم الوقت بوضع خطة  معهم عن لعبهم. هذا ما كان يفعله كل الطلاب كل يوم في المدرسة. هذا يساعد الأولاد على تنظيم أفكارهم. الأهل أيضا يضعون خطط دائما لتنظيم أفكارهم مثل قائمة التسوق قبل الذهاب إلى المتجر, كتابة القوائم تساعد على تنظيم اليوم….. الأولاد سوف يخبروكم ما هي خطتهم/ ماذا سيلعبون/ مع من سيلعبون/ ماذا سيستخدمون من أدوات في لعبهم.
1 hrWorktime/Kids play WITHOUT ELECTRONICS  Kids can use toys to pretend play, build, and create. They use their imaginations and play as they choose.وقت العمل :  يجب أن لا يستعمل الأولاد الإلكترونيات . يستطيع الأولاد استخدام الألعاب التي تساعدهم في  التخيل و البناء و الإبداع 
15 minClean Up:  Kids clean up the mess they have made while playing.وقت التنظيف: ينظف الأولاد الفوضى التي نتجت عن لعبهم.
5 to 10 min Recall:  Build your child’s memory of events by having your child tell you what they did while they played (ask “tell me how you did that” or “what did you do next?”) وقت التذكر: بناء ذاكرة الأولاد و مراجعة الأحداث عن طريق جعل طفلك يعيد سرد ما قام به خلال وقت اللعب( اسال طفلك: اخبرني كيف قمت بذلك؟ أو ماذا فعلت بعد ذلك؟)

Today’s letter for review is Kk! Use your side walk chalk and draw something that starts with a Kk.

After listening to all of the Pigeon stories, choose one of the following activities to do in your journal:

  1. Draw about your favorite pigeon story and tell me why you liked it
  2. Can you make up your own story about something silly pigeon might do?
  3. What would you say to pigeon if he was trying to get you to let him skip his bath, or drive the bus?

Math

Wash out an egg carton and write the numbers 0 through 11 in the bottom of each egg spot (see picture). Then use two small objects, like pom poms, 2 fruit loops, 2 legos, etc. put them inside the egg carton and shake, shake, shake! Open the egg carton and add up the numbers where the pieces landed!

Write it on a piece of paper as you go, you can draw dots/lines to help you add as you go! You can even use coins, cereal or other object to help you add the numbers together.
