The year has come to a close. Yet learning does not need to stop. Here are some ideas to extend learning throughout the summer.
1. Continue to read aloud to your child. Your child’s vocabulary extends when they are read aloud to on a regular basis.
2. Go online together and listen to stories. Check out our list of resources at http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=119412
3. Check out our local library or go online and access resources http://www.georgina-library.com/KidseResources.html
4. Go for a walk to our pond by the school. Talk about the birds you see. What insects do you hear? What changes are happening in the pond? Compare the pond now and how it was in the winter.
5. Some online math games and activities from a colleague Matt Gomez http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/pbsmathgames
6. Get moving! Go outdoors, walk, run, skip or jump. Go online and do the Just Dance Daily Physical activities on this link http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/justdance2
7. Write- Write instructions on lego creations, crafts or other projects. Create and write new lunch time recipes. Write about mini holidays. Write grocery lists together. Build and label parts of the building.
8. Fill up a bin of water, add some food colouring and different sized cups or containers. Let your child explore and discuss which containers hold more and why.
9. Use sidewalk chalk to draw and write. Practice letter formation, label pictures or write messages.
10. TALK! Yes, talk to your child. Expand their vocabulary. Talk about what they notice, think or wonder.
