Jefferson's March Reading Challenge is Still On...
Our children are used to structure and a scheduled day. The following is a schedule you may want to use in the coming days so the children will know when it’s work time and when it’s playtime. This is just a suggestion.
8:00-9:00 Up and at 'em! Get out of those PJ’s and start the day with a healthy breakfast.
9:00-9:30 Morning walk or some exercise.
9:30 to 11:00 Academic Enrichment Time
11:00-12:00 Do something creative - draw, color, use play dough.
12:00-1:00 Help out around the house. Put your toys away, gather the trash, or put your clothes in drawers.
1:00-2:00 Take it easy, and read a little.
2:00-4:00 Continue with some enrichment work. Practice math, read a book and write or draw a summary, write a letter to your classmates, teachers or your principal!
Email me your letter or even a story (or photo of your letter/story if it's a drawing or handwritten) and I will guarantee a response-- email@example.com.
