This month we are here to provide you with 4 more stress-free activities to help your little one grow academically while still having fun doing it! With the free time that they will have, these are the perfect activities for them!
Roll and Write
Your children are given a roll and write checklist, based on the number they roll on the dice, they will be given a setting, character and problem. Using that information they will either write a sill sentence (K/1) or a fun story (2/3). All of the supplies needed are included!
Measuring and Building a Reindeer
The children are given all of the supplies needed to make a reindeer out of construction paper, googly eyes, even a red nose! Then, they will measure the reindeer using the measuring tape included in the box.
States of Matter
Your child is given 3 balloons, they will fill 1 balloon with air and 2 balloons with water. They will put 1 water balloon in the freezer. Then, they will reach the questions given to them on the Science questions card, discovering and discussing the 3 states of matter they observed.
Building a Christmas Tree
The child is given supplies to build a Christmas Tree! They are encouraged to make a plan about how they will build the tree.
Building and Measuring a Sleigh
The students are given all of the supplies they need to build and measure Santa's sleigh. They are encouraged to make a plan before beginning about how to do this!
Grow Your Own Polar Bear
Your child will be given gummy bears, baking soda, salt and small cups. After reading the directions, they will place each gummy bear into a different cup based on what's inside. They will then wait and see which substance made their polar bear grow the biggest.
