Make a prediction: Which will hold more ? Why do you think so? How can you find out which holds more?

Can any of the containers fit inside another one? Estimate the containers capacity!

Explore "volume"

Your child maybe able to count to 100 but can he/she identify a number out of sequence? Play games like Sorry, Uno, Dominos to help them learn!

Our Language Art Focus


1) Work on naming  all capitol and lower case letters out of order

2) Work on saying the sound of upper and lower case letters out of order

3) Match or say as many words that start with the letter you see or are shown

4) Create rhyming words 

5) Work on identifying beginning  and ending sound of a word


guide  your child to ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

guide  your child to identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.

guide your child to describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text.

Writing Skill:

* Work on the formation of upper and lower case letters

*Work on sounding out and writing the letter that matches the sound to make words

* Work on leaving finger space between to words

A good way to start these is to work on your child's first and last name: teach each letter name , sound, correct way to make the letter and start using lower case. Make this fun, use play dough, shaving cream, a paintbrush and water, but model first!

Start small and add on!
