  2. Watch this fun video and practice counting to 100! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TgLtF3PMOc

  5. Use playdough to make the letters or other objects in your house.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! I hope you all wear some green and send me a picture. I am working on some fun activities for you boys and girls to do each day. Remember post pictures of your fun activity!!!

Today I want you to watch a book called “How To Catch a Leprechaun”. Do you think you can catch a leprechaun? I want you to make a leprechaun trap to try to catch a leprechaun.

****Parents (here’s your fun part) if you can get your hands on some gold chocolate coins, they have them at Walgreens, to put on the floor by your child’s trap overnight so that they can be surprised by it in the morning!! I did this with my kids every year and they love making a trap and finding coins, even though they didn’t catch a leprechaun. If you aren’t able to get gold coins then you could leave a few quarters by the trap. Please take a picture and share it on our facebook page so I can see their amazing traps!! Happy hunting.


Monday, March 16th Activities

We practice a letter a week at school, so I am going to review the letter we’ve already done this year so that hopefully they don’t lose anything they’ve learned this year. They are used to this, and they do well with the consistency of repetition. Hopefully you will get to see how smart, funny, talented, and kind your child is. The first few days they may resist a bit, because it is new. Stick with it, and tell them Mrs. Manwell said they need to do it. 

Please feel free to share pictures of your child earning at home either via the facebook group, or remind if you don’t want to post more publicly.

  1. Go on a letter hunt around your house.
