Friday Fun!

If the weather is nice, try this outdoor scavenger hunt with your grown-up. Head outdoors and see how many of these things you can find. Take a journal and pencil outside with you and make a list of the things that you find.

Word Pattern for the week:

Please choose a story and at least two of the activities provided to use with the -ug word pattern.
I am including two mini movies of the -ug pattern books. Printable -ug pattern books, and several -ug pattern practice pages. If you choose to print the -ug books, your child could use a crayon or marker to circle any sight words or -ug pattern words in the story. Common words in the -ug pattern are: bug, dug, hug, jug, mug, rug, tug, and slug.

Friday Fun!

What can you do on a snowy April day? Go on an indoor hunt to find things. When you are finished write about it in your journal and draw a picture of the things that you found. Have a great weekend friends!

Learning can happen without the use of a screen. Check out these fun ideas:
