Congratulations to the 2018 School Survey Raffle winners!
We want to congratulate the families of Kirin L, Jasmin A, Jeiner R, Partho B, Debanjan P, and Saad I who won $25 gift cards to local businesses . . . and our Grand Prize winners - the families of Violetta M and Sebastian M - who won a FREE after-school session this spring.
Thank you to all of our families for completing your 2018 School Survey!
Help your child take inventory of things at home. They can count anything ranging from books, pennies, to crayons. Observe how your child keeps track of their counting. Then encourage your child to make groups of ten using Ziploc bags or rubber bands. Once the items are counted, have a conversation about how many groups of ten and how many ones represent the number in total. For example, 35 pennies should be viewed as 3 groups of 10 and 5 ones. You can continue to do this throughout the summer too!
Readers go on adventures with their characters by paying attention to details to learn all they can about the characters they meet along the way. As you read with your child, help your child study the characters by thinking about their relationships with other characters, their likes and dislikes, their wants, and paying attention to what they do and say to infer feelings and motivations.
