Holiday Learning

It's hard to believe it, but it's holiday time!  Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away.  Soon families will gather together to feast and reflect on the things that they have and how glad they are to have them.  Children will have their first "vacation" from school.  But just beacause there's no school doesn't mean that there has to be no learning.  There are lots of fun, creative ways that your child can continue to learn during the Thanksgiving holidays.  Here are just a few ideas:

What's for Dinner?-Make up clues about what you're planning to have for Thanksgiving dinner and see if your child can figure out the right food.

Family Estimation-Have your child guess how many people are in the family (aunts, uncles, cousins), then make a list and count them up.  It's a great math activity and a good way to teach your child family history.

Tom the Turkey Wants Out-Have your child think of creative ways that Tom the Turkey can escape before Thanksgiving.

Reading Together-Take time each day during the holiday to share a book with your child.

Happy Thanksgiving!
