Here is an example of Dylan McPheter's Holiday Traditions from last year. He said I could share it this year as an example. Unfortunately, my new computer does not have a flash drive so you need to email your creation to me.

Coding

This week we participated in the Hour of Code. We watched two videos explaining how important coding will be to the future of today's youth. We spent the week playing and learning 3 different coding apps for primary students. If you would like to have your child practice at home, these are the apps we have been using; Scratch Jr, and Daisy the Dinosaur, Kodable. Star Wars Blocks is another great one you could play with at home. Have fun!

Toys

Thanks for sending in SO many toys! SSF will make a lot of children very happy!

Holiday Card

With the help of our 4th grade buddies, we made holiday cards for a Senior Living Facility. We hope to brighten their day!
