Summer time is ALMOST here! It's hard to believe, but it is true. Don't miss out on the Reading Celebration Field Day which takes place on Friday May 16th. The students have earned all the fun we have planned for them. The last week of school will bring some bowling fun here at the Primary Center during their Physical Education classes. Our "Bowling Alleys" will be set up in the gym for all students to enjoy. We will practice the skills of rolling that bowling ball toward plastic pins and discuss "bowling etiquette" as well.
During the summer months we encourage you all to remain safe in the sun and in the water. Please protect yourself and your child with sunscreen applied early enough to dry and use hats, sunglasses, umbrellas, and even clothing to protect tender young skin! ENJOY YOUR TIME TOGETHER!!!
The SPARK curriculum is used here at the Primary Center. You can see an overview of what we will be covering for the week on Monday of the calendar below. Please take time to check out the PDF files posted below. Each month there is a SPARK "Home Connection" that has family activities that you can print out and "do" together.
Parents please check the PDF file on shoe lace tying that helps you (with pictures) to work with your child at home. They will need lots of practice, even if they know the steps. Shown are the "loop the loop" and the "bunny ears" method. My personal favorite is "loop the loop", but either way is fine of course, what-ever works for you and your child is absolutely perfect. Students are asked to "double tie"after they have made the bow. The trick to students tying their own shoes, is making the final product tight enough that the bow will stay tied. We encourage them to.....PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE at home, with your permission of course! Please make sure that their shoes fit properly and until they learn to tie, put a double knot in those laces so that they will stay tied all day. We appreciate you in teaching this difficult skill!
Thanks so much for coming to my website and for allowing me to teach your child. I enjoy the time we spend together because they are just AWESOME KIDS!!!
