(your parents have my text information) Write and make cards for your teachers, grandparents or other family that you may not be able to see right now. Ask your parents to help you address and mail these to them or send pictures to them through texting.
Speaking- Do an interview of your mom or dad, grandparent or other family member- write out some questions first: How do you feel about the. Corona pandemic and having to be so careful?, Have you lived through something like this before? How has it changed how you do everday life? Have the family member interview you also. Have them think of questions to ask you.
i-Ready- This is the program we have for your kids to use over the summer. It has lessons, practice and covers reading and math! The kids love it! Your teacher will have their log in and password information.
These are some bird feeder ideas for making at home- Boston orioles like grape jam and oranges- these don't have to be on a fancy feeder just use toothpicks, string, yard or set them off the ground near a bush so they have a safe place to perch.
Cereal with holes in them can be placed on a pipe cleaner or string and tied on a branch.
Paper towel and toilet paper rolls can be used by putting peanut butter on them and roll them in bird seed or crushed cereal and/or nuts and use ribbon, string or yarn to tie run through the roll and hang where you can watch.
The milk jugs will need parent help to get the holes cut- use a wooden spoon or skewer to place through them like the illustration shows. This allows the birds a perch to stand on while they eat. Fill the jug with bird seed, crushed cereal and/or small nuts and seeds.
Friday 5/22 will be the last day for the website to be updated. I will post websites that will be available for you and your child to use over the summer.
