Have a safe and fun summer!!!!!
Remember! Hands on activities are the best way for children to learn. Grabbing some inexpensive things at the dollar store can turn their learning into fun!
-Small toys that can be manipulated (counted, sorted by color, etc)
This is just a small idea of what you can use to maximize learning at home this summer. All you need is a creative mind. Activities can be math, language arts, science, and anything you can imagine. We wish for you to intentionally teach math skills such as counting 1-10 or more, sorting by colors, shapes, and more, and identifying numbers. Language arts skills can be taught by continuing to read to your children, asking simple 'wh' questions (what? Where? When?), teaching letters of their name and the alphabet, and exposing them to beginning forms of writing (allowing children to trace letters in sand or other materials, and begin writing lines, shapes, and letters).
Going on a trip this summer?
Take a look at this video to help you pack a sensory travel bag. This will help lessen travel stress for both you and you child.
