Expectations for Success
If you haven't already, establish a routine bedtime, that allows your child to have 10-12 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.
Healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner....more veggies and fruit!
Closed toe sneakers to school; students run and play outside each day!
Snack and Water Bottle Daily
Please send ONE HEALTHY, non-messy snack, that does not require a utensil. I strongly encourage fresh veggies, fruit and/or nuts, as kids need food that will help them to be their best! I kindly request that you do not send chips, cookies, treats, or items with high sugar/fat content; please read nutrition labels. No "junk food!"
Portions should be snack-sized, and able to be eaten in less than 10 minutes. *Water only* upstairs.
*Limited Screen Time*
Focus on quality family time, creative play, outside play, social play, reading, etc.
Allow your child to gain confidence/independence by doing tasks/chores on his/her own (if your child does not have chores at home, now is a great time to start!) Let your child "problem solve" independently or with limited/open ended parental guidance, when he/she "get's stuck" and/or frustrated.
Reading (M-F) – 15 minutes
Preferably from a book of choice, that is a "JUST RIGHT" book; a book that is on or near their independent reading level.
Math (M and W only) - Choose any 4 problems from the homework sheet.
