I hope all students and families enjoy the winter break.
As you celebrate the holidays or simply celebrate time with friends and family, I encourage you to get creative!
If baking cookies is part of your holiday traditions add some artistic creativity and let your child jazz up that snowman or tree with colored frosting, candies, or sprinkles.
If they don't come out looking just right - who cares! It was creative fun and they will still taste great!
Make a paper snowflake with your child. Children of all ages benefit from practicing the fine motor skills of folding and cutting. Use thin paper easier for cutting through - computer paper, notebook paper, wrapping paper, or even magazine pages.
Art supplies make great gifts without costing a lot of money. Encourage children to draw people and things around them. They can document the holidays with their drawings!
Here are some great online activities that you and your child can have some fun with over break:
Please be Internet Smart with your child. Always monitor as children are on websites - no matter how "safe" it looks. Talk to your child about Internet safety. Visit our district's website for tips on how to keep our kids safe online. http://molineschools.org/internet_safety_parents.html
Build Your Wild Self!
Washington has been my "Home" school for many years now. I enjoy teaching all the different students who make up this diverse school. I have taught a multitude of lessons in this building and have learned just as much from all of the students.
