Fun activities

Below is a list of engaging activities that are fun but also filled with skills your child could benefit from practicing! Enjoy!


1.Create a fairy or gnome house out of sticks outside.  Then write a fictional story about who lives there! Remember your punctuation!! :)
2. Take a walk to search for signs of Spring! (Notice changes in trees - buds, pussy willows,etc. Document in your journal.
3. Create a sit spot somewhere in your yard. Use it for observing nature, sounds, journal what you see or wonder about.
4. Take a walk and look for signs of different seasons fall, winter, spring.
5. Write a How To...book.  It could be on how to make maple syrup, planting a garden, building a fairy house, building a bird feeder, surviving boredom :) etc.  
6. Make a leaf creature - give them a name and a story.  Draw this story using no words!
7. Make a 10’s frame out of sticks from the outdoors or popsicle sticks.  Find items to go inside. Make some equations!
  Ex. 8+2=10  
8. Challenge yourself with 2 frames.  Make equations that equal 20!
9.  Design a fraction flag out of paper or things from nature. Remember a fraction has equal parts!  Give your country a silly name!
Ex. This is separated into 3rds! The red part would be ⅓.
10.  Make 1 or 2 lines of numbers outside on a paved surface up to 20 with chalk.  Have someone ask you equations. If you make 2 lines you can race someone to the number! Or make out of paper/tape to play inside!

Virtual field trips

This is entertaining:  Actors reading children’s books!

Sugaring song

Thursday we decided to change the words to one of our favorite songs to fit the season! I challenge them to come up with another verse & share it below in the comment section!

Celebrate the sap flowing down
Celebrate the tall Maples growing all around
Celebrate the sap     that we tapped
Celebrate the sap flowing down

Indoor recess

I am sorry for all the worries and unknown future that is in all of our heads! Here is a little spark of laughter and sweetness we experienced today. When the slow song came on it really was a magical moment that I will forever treasure! After getting our groove on with some fast tunes we then turned to a calm song. Please watch the tranquil moment that went on with everybody in the room! Oh and the epic break dancing!! :)
