3-30-20 Thank you amazing parents for taking the time to work with your child at home. Some of the pictures of work sent back to the teachers. Tonight’s homework is to discuss each picture and have the child tell you what they think their classmate is doing or what they made or drew on the picture. Try to have your child use complete sentences. For example “Ali, what do you see happening in this picture?” Ali ,”I see Dena running “or “I see Dena exercising.” Keep asking open ended questions. “An open-ended question is a question that cannot be answered with a “yes” or “no” response, or with a static response. Open-ended questions are phrased as a statement which requires a response. The response can be compared to information that is already known to the questioner.”

Some ideas and information  from our social worker. This is your homework for the rest of the week. Also watch your email for individual homework.

 Here are some resources and guidance that you might find helpful while we are not in school.  

Here are some suggestions that you might helpful as we all deal with the change of routine.

Please remember to stay CALM!! Your children are going to take the lead from you.  If you are calm, they will be calm.

Keep a routine going.  Students need structure.  It provides security and purpose.

Here is an example of how to do this at home.

9.00 wake up/eat breakfast/ help with dishes

9-10 go outside walk/ride a bike/

10-11 Academic Time pick one lesson work on it 

11-12 Creative Time Make a picture/playdoh/music/read a book

12-1 Lunch time Help make lunch/eat/wash any dishes used

1-2 Academic Time pick a different tasks work on it

2-3 outside time chalks/walk/park

3-4 quiet time music/rest/puzzle’s

4-5 Any tasks to be complete at home cleaning, washing dishes, laundry 

6-7 Help with dinner cook with your kids

       Eat dinner

7-8 bedtime routine washing, reading, teeth

8.30-9 bed

This is only a suggestion; changes might need to be made to meet the needs of your family and that’s okay.

Make as part of your routine for the students to help you.  Parents are busy people and there are lots of activities that need to be done that students can do to keep things going.  

Get students to cook with you.  They can measure, peel or wash items.

Laundry, folding, pairing socks, gathering all the clothes to be washed.

Taking out the trash.
