At-Home Resources

Distance Learning Resources:

Below are optional enrichment activities that can be completed at home. Students should not spend more than 15-30 minutes a day on digital enrichment activities. To continue to make learning a positive experience, your child does not need to complete these activities if they are not up for it on any given day.

Other Ways to Support Learning at Home:

  • We are heavily focusing on beginning reading skills.  When at home, please be sure to encourage your child to identify the beginning sounds in words.  For example: "bike" begins with the /b/ sound.  The first letter is b. Children are also exploring touching each word as we read, reading from left to right, turning the pages and only one page at a time, identifying punctuation, etc. 

  • There is no such thing as too much counting.  Please count with your child.  If you feel he/she can count strongly past 20 (without skipping any numbers), begin counting by 2s/5s/10s.  Count backwards.  Have him/her listen to you count, leave a number out on purpose and ask him/her to tell you which number.  Let me know if you need ideas, games, etc.  Please also take a look at our weekly newsletter to see what math objectives we are currently working on.

  • Kindergarten is closer than you think. The children are rapidly increasing their independence and listening skills--both are crucial for Kindergarten readiness.  At home, please encourage your child to complete tasks independently.  For example:  getting dressed, putting on and taking off shoes and coats, unpacking his/her backpacks, cleaning up his/her own dishes and messes, etc.  The children will be expected to do all of these things next year, by themselves.  Training them at home now will greatly help them prepare to be successful in Kindergarten.  

  • Please use any of the activities that were sent home and/or discussed during conference time.
