Welcome to summer at The Haven! We have lots of in-house activities planned as many of our plans have changed due to the “COVID times.”
We are here to support any families in need. Please, reach out if you need any re-sources or referrals during these uncertain times in our society.
I hope you all have a wonderful summer!!
Preschool 5/Pre-K/SAWelcome to Summer We have many planned activities inside of the classroom. We will go to any planned field trips that are allowed. We will walk to the park every Tuesday. Please, bring a bag lunch and water bottle. We have some ex-tracurricular classes, free of charge, including; computer, music, garden-ing, card making, and drama (sign up for drama, if you have not already and are interested). We are in contact with the movie theater and bowling alley for field trips. We will contact our parents as soon as we know more. Please notify staff of any schedule changes for your child/children. Keep your eye out for any sign up sheets for upcoming field trips.
The Creative CurriculumMid-June we will begin focusing on our exercise study. We need your help to get our study moving! If you can, we’d love your help in gathering items to investigate. We’ll need many different objects and pictures related to exercise. Below is a list of suggested items, but you may also send others not on the list that you think may add to our exploration. Please label all items with your name so we can return them to you at the end of our study. We promise to take good care of them.
Equipment/objects– balls, hand weights (up to 2lbs), hippity-hop ball, stretching bands, exercise mats, hula hoops, jump ropes, scarves for dancing, Frisbees, and dance music.
Pictures- walking/running, climbing, dancing, gymnastics, tennis, sledding, swim-ming, volleyball, and lifting weights.
At home you can talk with your child about exercise and do a few exercises with your child each day. Point out when you notice people in your community exercis-ing. Help your child keep a daily exercise chart. Create a list together of your fam-ily’s favorite exercise. As you read books with your child, notice and talk about the character’s physical movements. Thank you for playing an important role in our learning.
