# Activities for June 4th

Wow, it’s almost the end of the school year and this will be my last regular post. I will be posting ideas for summer activities on Monday and I will be delivering items next week on Monday or Tuesday. I will let you know soon.

## Letter of the Week

Our letter this week is Rr. It makes the ruh sound and we write R with a big line, little curve, little line.

When you are outside today look for items that start with the letter R. Also check out signs in your neighborhood. See if there are any signs that have r’s on them.

## Math

You are going to use some junk mail for this activity. Use a pencil, crayon or marker and look through the mail for numbers. When you find numbers circle them! Once you have found the numbers carefully use scissors and cut them out. Want a challenge? Draw a picture to match the number. Ex. 5 = XXXXX   3 = 000

## Work Time

Turn off those screens and play with some toys, color, paint… anything you can think of!

Planning Time (5 minutes): 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. Adults make plans all the time to organize their thoughts (shopping lists are made before going to the grocery store, to do lists are made to help plan your day etc..).

Work Time (45-60 minutes): During work time kids play WITHOUT ELECTRONICS.  Kids can use toys to pretend play, build, and create.

Clean Up (about 15 minutes):  Kids clean up the mess they have made while playing.

Recall Time (5 minutes): 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?”)

## Story Time

Today we are going to listen to a different story. This is a silly story that has to do with weather. The title is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Click on the link to check it out.
