Lee's Summit Parents As Teachers
Longer days are here!
Even with the longer days we still have cold and flu season. Reminder: If you or your child are ill, please call your parent educator to reschedule. She will work with you to get your visit rescheduled
Inclement weather information
Please remember, if Lee's Summit Schools close for weather related reasons, then you will need to communicate with your Parent Educator concerning your visit that day. If the roads are hazardous, most likely your visit will need to be rescheduled. Thanks you!
Goal Setting as this year begins:
Making small changes can have a big impact.
Calling 3, 4 and 5 Year Olds
Has your child had a developmental screening?
1. Set a schedule and stick to it.
2. Keep screen time away from bedtime (by at least an hour)
3. Choose high-quality, educational apps. My favorites: ABC Mouse & Amazon Free Time
4. Use a timer during screen time and be there to do a real activity or spend real one-on-one time together right after to help them transition.
5. Sit with your child during screen time.
6. Avoid giving your child screen time when they are upset or during a fit
Share the story then make self portraits together.
Take a winter nature walk. What are some of the amazing things you see?
Spend a day noticing all the little things - and if it’s snowed recently, even better!
Dig out a plastic Easter egg or small ball, and try to walk like a penguin with the egg/ball on your feet. See who can go the farthest without dropping the egg!
Work together to make a snowman outdoors if you can, but if the weather doesn’t cooperate, you can make one out of paper Take turns adding the pieces to mimic the cooperation friends have. !
Please feel free to share this with others.
