Have your child keep a journal. We only get better at writing by practicing and this would be the easiest activity for you to do at home with them.

Your child should be reading for at least 30 minutes every day just like they do at school.

Cooking and Baking are great ways to learn math - measurement, adding, subtracting…

Build with lego, blocks, or sew something - all good for brain development.

Don’t forget to get outside and play in the snow and get some fresh air.

I miss all my little kiddos but I hope you are enjoying your time at home. I hope the above helps in your day to day learning. As we learn more from the school division about how to support you I will be in touch.

Toodles,Mrs. B.
