Have a Great Summer

Our school year is officially completed. I enjoyed being your child’s preschool teacher. I will miss each and every one of them. Know your child will always hold a special place in my heart. 💕

Thank you for all your hard work and commitment in helping your child during our remote learning. It definitely was a challenge, but the children all worked so hard and are now ready to move onto kindergarten. I am very proud of them.

This is my last post. I wanted to share the following learning activity calendars for the summer. These are optional but a good way to keep learning fun until the new school year. I wish all families a safe, healthy, and relaxing summer. Enjoy the sunshine!

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?”)
