With the Winter Break around the corner, it is a perfect time for you to begin thinking of ways to fill those quiet or empty moments for your sons and daughters during the two-week holiday. Vacations offer the perfect time to catch up on a good book or enjoy an academic challenge!
I encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the multiple online learning opportunities, which we have set up for our students.
Online magazines such as Time for Kids or Smithsonian are wonderful places to learn and explore the world around us. Code.org offers a creative outlet to learn or practice coding. Typing Club is encouraged for our third and fourth grade students to practice their keyboarding skills. These are only a small sample of the on-line resources available on Symbaloo, which is accessible through the Online Learning Access link.
In addition to technology, we encourage our families to use the holidays to stock up on board games, puzzles, books, magazines, comic books, and picture books for your children to enjoy. Don’t forget to visit the Book Fair, which is happening through Friday in our Community Center to check out the amazing books or visit the local library or bookstore. Make these trips into a special family outing!
All of our young students can benefit from a little time away from school. I hope you will encourage time to play outdoors, time to explore the Bacich online resources, and time to curl up to share a good book!
