Work on fine motor skills at home 🙂
Here are a few ideas:
- Have students use “tools” with their playdough at home (i.e. rolling pin, kiddie scissors, cookie cutters, etc)
- Draw all kind of dotted lines on paper and give them different things to trace them with (pencil, crayons, markers). You can even have them follow the lines with glue and then sprinkle on some glitter to make it more fun!
- Find small objects they can use tweezers to pick up at home (sometimes even the dollar store has larger plastic tweezers that are easier for them to maneuver) and drop into a cup or small basket
- Have them string beads onto pipe cleaners- you can even turn them into bracelets or necklaces!

Week(s) of April 29th
The students will begin to learn about bugs this week. They will read a scholastic magazine, watch a video on bugs, and even play a game on the computer where they get to build their own insect. We will read books about bugs and the students will get to create their own fireflies and make bugs using different paper shapes. They will have opportunities to sort bugs vs non-bugs as well as explore different types of bugs in the sensory table with magnifying glasses. Bugs, bugs and more bugs!
