Happy Mother’s Day. The flowers you received from your preschooler were planted by them and they have been helping me water them for a month. The container is biodegradable so you can plant it right in the ground. The flower is a Painted Daisy (multicolored). Hope you enjoy them this summer.
Home Challenge: Start thinking of summer now. Kindergarten will begin before you know it. To help prepare you child, schedule your day so you can fit in some Reading Time, and some type of project, whether it’s, coloring, playing an alphabet or counting game, or making something together in the kitchen. Have them practice writing their name for you everyday. There are lots of story times and summer reading programs that can help motivate your child to read with you this summer. Another thing to think about is to keep them active by going to the park and playing outside. We like to take swimming lessons so they learn how to be safe in the water.
