Going on a word hunt…

Maybe you’ve read the book Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.

Going On A Bear Hunt

Today, you will be going on a WORD hunt..

First, find your child’s sight word cards in their book bag.

Next, place the sight word cards around the room or around the house (in your child’s line of sight).

Give your child a piece of paper and a pencil, the paper should be numbered with the number of words that you placed around the room (if you placed 20 words…label the paper 1-20).

You and your child can now go on a Word Hunt! As your child finds each word, he or she should write it on the paper.

Happy Hunting!

Write a letter to family or a friend!❤

What a great way to connect with others during social distancing!

What you may need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil, crayon, or marker
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Envelopes

What to do:

  • Send your child little notes (by putting them in a pocket or in a special place they can find it. When your child shows you the note, read it aloud with expression. Some children will read the notes on their own.
  • Your child can write a note or draw a picture for a neighbor and just leave it on the porch!
  • Use sidewalk chalk to write messages to friends or family in front of their house while keeping your distance.
  • Have your child write a letter. Have your child dictate the words to you if your child doesn’t write yet.
  • For example:
  • Dear Grandma,
    I like it when you make ice cream. It’s better than the kind we buy at the store.
  • Your grandson,
    Ali
  • Ask the people who receive these notes to respond. Calling on the phone is fine – a written response is even better.
