Things to do at home this month to reinforce our themes:
Look for our words of the week when reading a story, cut out pictures beginning with the letters of the week.

Play “I Spy” with items beginning with the letter of the week, or find things around your home that begin with the letter of the week.

Practice telling time on the clock at home. When you sit down to dinner, ask them to tell you what time it is, when they go to bed, have them check the clock. Have fun with Time!

Practice exchanging money with your child. When you go to the store, have them help you pay!
