    Good morning, Happy Thursday!  Since the 2019-2020 school year officially ends tomorrow, this is our last daily activity before summer.  It's been a strange school year, to say the least.  Thank you for all you have done to help your child!  I have always felt that the school-home partnership is vital, and this year has certainly proved that.  Thank you again!  Have a wonderful, safe, and happy summer.   Today's math activity is to design a parade float for a 'summer celebration parade' - how long would the float be?  How wide?  What would be on it?  Is there a theme?

    Good morning and happy Wednesday!  This is the second to last activity idea post and the last language arts post.  The school year has definitely been different, with so many unexpected things happening.  Thank you, grown ups, for all of the support and care that has gone into helping with your child's education!   The activity for today is to have your child write a letter to their teacher for next year.  They can tell the teacher about themselves.  Some ideas are: *What do they want the teacher to know about them?  Things they're good at, things they'd like to work on? *What do they like most about themselves?  We referred to them as 'super powers' in my room, everyone has something they're good at even if they haven't found it yet.  It doesn't have to be something school-related.   *How do they learn best?  Is it by listening?  Seeing?  Moving around? Since they don't know the name of their teacher for next year yet, they can start their letter with 'Dear Teacher'.

    Good morning, and happy Tuesday!  Today is our second to last math activity, and it might be a challenge.  See how far your child can get counting down from 100.  If that's too easy, try counting down by 2's...or by 5's...maybe by 10's?  Counting down (backwards) isn't easy!

    Good morning!  Today's math activity is to practice skip counting.  Count by 2's, 5's, 10's, maybe even try 25's...to 100.  You can use a hundreds chart if you have one handy, creating one was one of the earlier activities I posted.

    Good morning, happy Wednesday.  Today's language arts activity is to write a fifth adventure for your character.  This will be the last one I officially suggest, although you are welcome to continue to write stories for your character for as long as you'd like.  Where will they go?  What will they do?  Who might they meet?

    Good morning!  Today's math activity is to create more arrays.  The more your child works with numbers, becomes familiar with them, the more comfortable they will be working with them on higher level math calculations as they go through school.  Have your child use whatever's handy to make the arrays.  For example, they could make three groups of four crayons.  Have them count out the total, at the end. 'Three groups of four crayons equals twelve crayons.'

    Good morning!  It's hard to believe it's already June 1st!  Today is National Say Something Nice Day.  Your child's language arts activity is to write a letter saying something nice to someone that is important to them.  Perhaps they could write a letter to the grown up that's been helping them with school work since we've been in quarantine?

    Good morning, happy Thursday!  Today is math day, and our activity is to use a deck of cards to play a memory game.  Place the cards face down in rows and columns and take turns finding cards that match.  If you don't have a deck of cards, you can make a memory game with paper and writing/drawing utensils.  Just cut out several of the same shape (should be an even number of whatever shape you choose) and draw pairs of items to match up.  If you're using cards, you can add the pairs you find.  Face cards equal 10.  For example, if your child finds a ten of hearts and a ten of clubs, that's a match and it equals 20.  To 'kick it up a notch', you can have older children multiply the pairs.

    Good morning, I hope it's a wonderful Wednesday!  May 27th is National Paper Airplane Day.  Have your child design a paper airplane and write a description of it.  Afterwards, fly it and then write about how well it did (or didn't).  If it didn't fly well, how could you fix it so that it does?  Please remember to be safe and that flying paper airplanes might be best outside, or at least away from something that might break or get hurt (please don't aim it at anyone or anything).
