Did you Meet the Vacation Week Family Learning Challenge?
During the school vacation week we issued a "Family Learning Challenge," in our Pleasant Street School newsletter. To participate we asked for families to please send in "evidence" of some of your family learning activities. This could be almost anything- a reading log, a math journal, or a writing journal, pictures of an experiment done together and more. All children who participate will be entered into a drawing to receive prizes and each participant will also be recognized at our next all school meeting. Our goal was to encourage quality family time spent enjoying educational and learning activities together.
We also included the following websites which may be helpful:
Literacy information, Home & School Activities, and a printable reading log
