What's on your list?
• BOOKS! Please be sure to include books in your holiday giving. Students need 30 minutes of reading at home every night, so surround them with books that will interest them.
• GAMES! I mean good, old board games - the ones we played when we were young. Our youngest students can learn 1-to-1 correspondence (counting one space at a time) by playing Sorry or Candy Land. Older students learn how to make inferences - an essential skill for reading - by playing Clue (our 3rd grade students finished a mystery unit recently). Students learn to recognize patterns with Connect 4. There are many coding-type games out there, including those that use technology. Yahtzee is great for doing mental math.
• MEMBERSHIPS! Consider memberships at the Milwaukee County Zoo, Discovery World, the Art Museum, or a nature center. Many of these have reciprocal memberships at other zoos and museums across the nation. This can be a great idea for a grandparent to gift to a family, especially if they live far away.
