You can choose when to do which ones, or switch around the days!

***PARENTS: Please take photos of your child doing all of these activites! We are going to make a class book when we return to school with all of the photos of the children doing the activities!
**Don’t forget to check our classroom webpage, I will be adding YOUTUBE videos to books I’ll be reading for them to watch!
Day 1- Listen to, “The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day” on YouTube!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!! Go on a nature walk and find things that are GREEN!!!! Take a picture of one green thing you see and send it to me on Remind!
Write a letter to Mrs. Humphrey! Walk to your nearest mailbox, and mail it to:
601 Cortlandt St.
Perth Amboy, NJ 08861
If you do not have access to a stamp, feel free to take a photo and send it to me on the Remind app! J
Go outside and look for rocks! Find FIVE special rocks that we are going to bring into our classroom to paint and add to our discovery center! You can paint these rocks at home, or wait until we get back to school if you do not have paint at home!
Day 5- Google images of “STAMPS”, and have your child find their favorite one! Have them draw a picture of it, and send it to me!
Day 6- Make a ramp, a car, a tower, etc- anything you’d like, out of a cardboard box!
Read your favorite book at home, and look for the word, “the”! Point to the word “the” every time you see it! (You can also find the words and, a, at, etc!) These are the sight words we are starting to learn in the classroom to prepare for Kindergarten!
Write a letter to someone in your family! Tell them all about the activities you’ve been doing at home, and all about the MAIL study you’ve been learning about at school!
Day 9- Draw 3-6 different shapes, and make people out of them! Color them, and take a picture to send me! Identify the shapes and label the shapes you made!
Day 10- Take the silverware out of your drawer and have your child separate all of the forks, knives, and spoons! Count how many each one has, and write that number! Have them put them back correctly!
If you have baking soda and vinegar at home, create a volcano outside with your child! (Trust me, they will love it! The more excited you get about it, no matter how cool (or not cool!) it is, the more excited they will get! Check out this Youtube video!
Go for a walk and count how many mailboxes you see! Look at the numbers on them, and discuss the differences and the similarities! Take a photo of YOUR mailbox, and let your child go with you to take the mail out of the mailbox for the next few days and sort the mail with you!
Discuss healthy foods and unhealthy foods with your child! Look through your refrigerator and/or pantry, and talk about what is healthy for our bodies, and what is a special treat! (Moms and dads- perfect time to clean out the fridge! ;)
Choose a color to have your child/children wear today! Find things around the house that are the same color! Discuss the letters that are in that color (for example, p i n k ) – and find things around the house that begin with those letters!
Let your child help you cook a meal! Use measuring cups and spoons! (Even if it’s just a bowl of cereal- have them fill the measuring cup to the amount you tell them, and pour it into a bowl!) .. let me know what you made! Don’t forget to take pictures!
Day 16- Go for a STICK WALK! Collect a few sticks that your child can save to bring into school! We will use these sticks to create a “STICK COLLAGE” that will tie together our remote learning with our classroom learning! We will display this collage in the hallway of our school!
Day17- Have your child get their SILLIES OUT! Here’s what they will need to do-
10 jumping jacks
5 arm circles
20 stretches (whatever kind you want!)
Repeat this 3 times!
Also have them sing, “Head, shoulders knees and toes”, 3x, each time going faster! (we sing this in our classroom, so they should know it!)
