June is here and summer vacation is going to start soon! If you are looking for ideas on what you can do to make your child's day more special, check out our Google classroom. Highlights contained within our lessons include: making cookies with Cookie Monster, making bannock, drawing in the mud, making your own sensory bags, sidewalk painting, making playdoh with lotion and going on a bug hunt. We really miss our students and can't wait until we can play and learn together again. Wishing everyone a healthy and safe summer!
Congratulations to Charlie who just turned 4 years old, and works studiously on his Google Classroom activities! I am hoping that once our classroom's iPads are ready to be loaned, more students will eagerly participate in our lessons. Even if you are feeling overwhelmed but if you check out our ideas, you may find ways to relax and enjoy some quality time with your child. There are ideas about what you can talk about, how to communicate using their communication systems, cooking, songs, counting and sensory play. These are just a few of the ways that we have tried to make your day a little easier and your child’s time more fun. Let’s hope that we can play together at school soon! Thank you for trying to keep everyone safe!
Keeping busy has kept us warm! In December, the students made plaster plates and tie dyed wrapping paper. The students requested that we sang "Jingle Bells" and "Must Be Santa" to the point that one student memorized the words to both! The book the students requested the most was called “Santa” and this month it's a tie between a sensory book called “Winter” and the classic fairy tale, “The Gingerbread Boy”. Students are currently baking and decorating their own gingerbread person. In circle time, the students like dressing up and acting out the song "Frosty the Snowman". A pretend snowball fight makes for a good laugh each day.
