LSR7 Parents as Teachers

November 2020

PLEASE SHARE THIS NEWSLETTER WITH A FRIEND!!

We are always working to connect with our families in LSR7. We appreciate your referrals.

It's about time....

Life looks and feels a little different, but the leaves are still gorgeous and the weather is changing to Fall with Winter already making a visit!


We are thankful for all who have continued to allow us into your homes virtually - our services have not changed! Just the format we are using. If you know of a family with a child prenatal to pre kindergarten, please share our information with them. We are still working hard to connect families with resources, to partner with you for your children and to bring you valuable information about your child's development.


Our district is using Google Meet for our visiting platform. If you would like to share a picture of your virtual visit, please share it with us and look for them on our Facebook page! (You will need to sign a release allowing us to use your picture - it is included below)


If you need anything, please let your parent educator know or feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help you!

Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood Made Fun!

From Our Librarian

Let's Have Some Fun!

Try a fun hunt!

Try this out with your family for some fun!

When you do a scavenger hunt, you can go outdoors, but you can also do one inside! Make up different items to find - both easy and a little harder. Let your kids make one for you too! They love trying to have you look for things as well. You can also make one that uses senses...find something smooth, rough, smelly, etc. See below for some ideas!

Using our senses helps us to learn. These activities use different senses to help your child grow and learn.
