Things to do at Home this Month to reinforce our themes:

  • Make Valentines together with your child. Have them sign their own name to the cards.
  • Practice saying the Pledge of Allegiance with your child at home.
  • Practice teeth brushing with your child. Make a healthy snack together as a family that will promote dental health.
  • Practice the letter of the week with your child by playing “I Spy”. This is a great way to help them learn initial sounds. Remember to focus on the sound of the letter and not the name of the letter.
