Home Project: I would like to work on phone numbers with the students this week.
Could you please send me what phone number you would like your child to know to best

get a hold of you. This is important information to know especially before Kindergarten.

This will also emphasis number recognition as well. Practice dialing your phone number

on a “fake” phone at home. If they are having a hard time remembering the phone number I

recommend putting it to music. It fits well with the “Bingo” song. “My phone number is

seven long and I can dial home, 512-6094, 512-6094, 512-6094 and I can dial home.” Or

you can sing and I can dial mommy or daddy.
