Read a story:
Select a book from your collection. Do you have a favorite book? Think about the cover of the book. Do you remember all the characters? Where is the setting?
Parents, when you read with your child, discuss the book illustrations, ask questions to predict what will happen in the story, point to the words while reading and discuss the events in the story. Afterwards, draw a picture of your favorite part, or maybe draw a different ending. If the story takes place in space, maybe look up some information about the solar system, stars or space travel on the internet.

Practice sight words:
Write words with chalk, use a stick and write words in the sand, write words and trace with a marker or form with playdough. Spread shaving cream out on a table and write words with your finger. Use words in a sentence. Challenge yourself to use as many words as possible in one sentence.
Put the closed caption setting on your tv and turn off the sound. How many words can you actually read-I bet you'll surprise yourself!
Save items that could create a make-believe dramatic play center-make menus, add empty food containers, notebooks, markers, aprons, anything that can be used for pretend play.
Journal writing about what you are doing at home. Who knows...maybe one day your journal entries will be the beginning of your first book about living during the Coronavirus!
Practice Rhyming. Make up a poem.
Using the same ideas for sight words above, practice writing numbers.
Look for shapes around your home. Look at the containers your food comes in-cylinders, rectangular prisms. Save your containers and build with them. Make a collection of shaped containers.
Practice adding and subtracting with dried beans, cereal, pennies. Count everything. Do you know how many socks you have if you count by 2's?
