Thank you Stellar!!! From Torrie

It is with a lot of excitement and hope for the future, that I am writing this see you later, not Goodbye :) My last day at Stellar was April 1st, as I am moving on to a new Career adventure starting next week. I can't express enough, how much my time here has meant to me. Stellar is a special place to work, and the Staff is one in a million, as are the amazing kiddos. Thank you for sharing your families with me and for really making Stellar a fantastic place to be!!

Summer is Coming!

Summer is just around the corner. We are starting to move towards the end of the year. During the lazy summer days it is still fun to find engaging activities for your child to do. One such activity could be writing games. These games can be fun anytime of the year, but they are really good to use during the summer to have fun and build on your child’s educational skills. Here are two writing activities that you and your family can enjoy.

DIY Mad Libs

This game is a great way to work on parts of speech. DIY mad libs work just like regular ones, except instead of buying them, you write your own. Write a short simple story (less than a page) on lined paper, skipping every other line. True stories or summaries of famous stories are fun, too. Erase some words, replacing them with an underline. Below that, write the kind of word the erased word was (noun, verb, adjective, number, name, etc.) Then find a friend and have them choose another word of the same kind to fill in the blanks. Read the new, crazy story! Be prepared to laugh!

Cat to Dog

This spelling and word-pattern game is a great solo activity or it can be played in pairs, with each person trying to solve challenges given by the other person. The point is to think of two words with an equal number of letters (three is easy, four a good challenge, five is sometimes too hard), and turn one word into the other word in as few steps as possible. In each step you make a new word by changing one letter. Each change must make a real word and you can’t change the order of the letters. So, for instance, to change CAT to DOG, you could do CAT>COT>DOT>DOG. Try to think of challenging pairs. Can you think of an impossible one?
