Home Connections

  • Please send in a baby photo of your child for a special project.  Photos will be returned. 
  • When at home or outside, point to different objects and ask your child if it is a living or non-living thing and how they came to that conclusion.
  • During family meals, discuss with your child where the food they are eating comes from    (ex: broccoli is a plant and chicken nuggets comes from an animal).
  • Ask your child to help you sort items for recycling.
