Science:  Draw a person on a blank sheet of paper.   You may draw an example to get them started.  Put the date on it and send it in.  You may refer to the following website with your child:
www.hwtears.com
• “Why it works” to “Online tools” to Video library (watch videos like Matman demonstration)

Social Studies: 
Goal: Share episodes of personal history from birth to present through personal memorabilia or connected to stories. 
Activity:   Give your child four or more pictures of themselves to put in order (according to age, event – like building a snowman)   Send them in to share with the class - optional


Parents – There are 2 sets of capital letters.  You have a few options depending on your child.  One option is for you to cut one set of the letters out so that they are little squares.  Show them how to put the matching letter card onto the 2nd sheet of capital letters.  2nd option:  Put the cut out letter squares on the floor (you may only want to do 5 letters at a time) and say give me the “___”.  3rd option is to make a matching game with two pages of capital letters.  Cut out all the letters into squares.  I would encourage you to do only 5 letter pairs at a time so that you would have 10 cards total face down.   One person turns two cards face up, name them and then turns them face down.  If you turn two over that are a match, put them aside and you can have another turn.  (I usually limit one second turn)   If your child does not know the letter names yet, just say the letters when you have a turn and if they ask the name, then tell them.    You may want to put 5 or 6 sets in different baggies at home to make it easier.   Have fun!  
Step 2:  For those children who already know the letter names, say the letter and make the letter sound when the letters are turned over.  (Example: B, Bah)
Step 3:   Say words that start with that letter sound (Ex:  ball, bat, bake)
 

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K   L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z 

 

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K   L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z 


(For those children who can already name all of the capital letters) Match the lower case letter with the second set of lower case letters.  2. Name them 3.  Match the lower case letter with the capital letter.
 

a  b  c  d  e  f  g  h  i  j  k  l  m  n  o  p  q  r  s   t  u  v  w  x  y  z 
 

a  b  c  d  e  f  g  h  i  j  k  l  m  n  o  p  q  r  s  t  u  v  w  x  y  z 

Parents – There are 2 sets of numbers.  You have a few options depending on your child.  One option is for you to cut one set of the numbers out so that they are little squares.  Show them how to put the matching numbers card onto the 2nd sheet of capital letters.  2nd option:  Put the cut out letter squares on the floor (you may only want to do 5 letters at a time) and say give me the “___”.  3rd option is to make a matching game with two pages of numbers.  Cut out all the numbers into squares.  One person turns two cards face up, name them and then turns them face down.  If you turn two over that are a match, put them aside and you can have another turn.  (I usually limit one second turn)   If your child does not know the numbers yet, just say the number when you have a turn and if they ask the name, then tell them.
