ALL ABOUT HEALTH AND HAPPINESS: INSIDE AND OUT!

This week, our theme is "HEALTH AND HAPPINESS: INSIDE AND OUT!" Throughout the week, we will be incorporating various activities to introduce the letter H. While at home, have your child spy for items that begin with H. They can also point out the letter H. Ask them if it is a capital or lowercase letter. We will focus on beginning sounds. We will also be focusing on identifying, building, and writing our names. Some kiddos have mastered writing their first name. Those that are ready will begin to writing their last name. In math, we will be learning about the number 8, the color blue, and looking at dental health, emotional health, and how to keep our bodies healthy.
