How to Use This Page

This page contains a "menu" of lessons and activities for this week's learning at home. You will find the objectives: the specific skills that your child will be able to do. Then you will find a selection of lessons and activities which help your child master those skills. If you run into technical issues or other difficulties with any of these, simply move on and choose another. These activities fit into the Sample Dailly Schedule.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Your child DOES NOT have to complete all activities listed for each subject.
  • Activities have been identified to give your child choice and variety.
  • Your child's teacher may suggest other activities more appropriate for your child.

  • Can you create rhythms based on what the hungry caterpillar ate? Write them down. Here is what I came up with. Remember that as long as you have a rhythm value for each syllable, any rhythm can be correct!

Extension Activities:

  • Which foods on the caterpillar’s menu are healthy options? Play one or both of these games to see if you can make healthy decisions!
