Suggested Activities

Dear Parents,

This is a suggestion of what you and your child can do each day to keep up your school skills. These resources are also linked on LCS’s website. We recommend you do these daily with your child as often as they would be in school until LCS is back in session:

*Help your child review numbers #1-10 and letters A-T (letter names and sounds) and the sight words that have come home throughout the year. If you can’t do the whole list of numbers and letters each day, split the list into 3 chunks: #1-3 and A-H, #4-6 and I-N, #7-10 and O-T.

Sight Words for Review: and, at, big, boy, can, cat, dad, egg, for, God, go, he, it, is, Jesus, king, love, I love you, me, mom, no, on, off, red, see, the, to

*Have your child practice writing the letters in uppercase.  Again, if it is too much to write A-T in a day, split the list in to manageable chunks.  We usually review a few letters and numbers each day in our morning work writing time.

*Have your child practice writing his or her name in title case.

*Help your child identify the day of the week.

*Ask your child, “What is the weather like today?”

*Have your child practice the flag pledges

*Help your child choose a gross-motor activity, such as playtime outdoors, build a blanket fort inside, keep a balloon from touching the ground, exploring outside for signs of spring, etc.  

*Have your child work on a fine-motor activity, such as Playdoh, working with watercolor paints, building something with Lego or blocks, putting together a puzzle, working with stickers, or coloring.  

*Read with your child, or have them listen to and watch a book from our list of links.  One of the best things you can do with your child is to READ with them! Choose books that you can read to your child, as well as some that they can read to you – even if they are simply “reading” the pictures.  You can ask your child to identify the type of cover (hardcover or paperback), the title page, to predict what might happen next in the story, and to retell the story after you have finished the book together.

Bible songs to sing: 
Jesus Loves Me
Jesus Loves the Little Ones Like Me, Me, Me
I’m Inright, Outright, Upright, Downright Happy All the Time
Read Your Bible, Pray Every Day
The B-I-B-L-E

Pre-K Picture Challenge:
If you are up for an additional challenge, take a picture of the following and send it to us by email, and we will respond!
Wednesday: Something that starts with the letter “U”
Thursday: A picture of you and today’s weather
Check your email at the end of the week for the next week’s picture challenge!

We hope that your child’s time away from LCS can be an enjoyable and rewarding time for you and your whole family, despite the inconvenience of timing!  We look forward to seeing you again once we are back in session.

Blessings to you and yours,

Mrs. Oostman and Mrs. Roels
