    Parents, you can help your child this month by:

    • Reading to your child every day.
    • Taking walks outside, observing and discussing the changes of the season.
    • Looking for things that are different shades of blue and white.
    • Pointing out things that begin with the letter(s) Ww, Bb, Cc, or Kk
    • Pointing out objects in the environment that have the Octagon shape. 
    • Talk about the shapes that you see in buildings and other objects in the environment.

     

    Please share any Winter activities that your family participates in.  We would love to learn and talk with students about your family’s trips to snowy destinations or learn about any Winter traditions your family has.  You can share by:

    • Writing a letter to the class
    • Sending a book for us to read aloud
    • Sharing photos of a snowy destination family trip or a family Winter tradition
