Hello Peer Buddy Families! 

The following is a suggested schedule of activities for you and your child to do throughout the day during the next few weeks. This is not mandatory, and completely flexible. Think of it as a starting point for how to create a schedule and routine and best works for you and your family. Activities and resources will be updated periodically to keep things fresh! Please let us know what works for you and what does not, and if there are any particular resources or ideas we can help you with. We are here as a resource for you during this time, so any and all feedback is very helpful! We would also love to see any pictures of activities that you do at home that you would like to share with us. You can email the school or me directly at lydia.kline@k21schools.org. If you are having trouble getting access to the Zoom Meetings as well, please let me know! 

Thank you all, and happy learning!

Ms. Lydia

Time Suggested Activity
Before 9 am Wake up, eat breakfast, get ready for the day!
9:00-9:30 Music and Movement Time- wake your body up with some dancing, stretching, yoga, a short walk outside, or other activities.
9:30-10:00 Peer Buddy Morning Circle Zoom Meeting (Meeting will most likely be less than 30 minutes)
10:00-11:00 Learning Through Play Time- Kiddos at this age do most of their learning through play and hands on activities. Attached is a list of simple activities you can do with your child at home to encourage early math, early reading, motor, and social skills. It also comes with a list of additional online resources that could be helpful in providing activities to do. Click anywhere on this box follow link: PK At Home Activities Guide
11:00-12:00 Learning Through Play Time Continued- This week, the Zoom meetings will be focused on reviewing the letter R and the parts of trees. If you would like to further review these concepts at home, I have provided easy adaptations or focuses to a couple of the activities from the activities guide: Suggested Activity Adaptations for the Letter R and Tree Part Review (click anywhere on this box for link)
12:00-1:00 Lunch! Cooking with your children is another fun way to incorporate early reading and math skills. Allowing children to help you prepare the family meals, to whatever level you are comfortable with, is a great way to do this. If you are looking for specific kid friendly recipes for a lunch or snack option, this is a link to all of the cooking we have done in class so far this year. These are a great place to start for simple, kid friendly recipes. Click anywhere on this box for Peer Buddy Recipes
1:00-2:00 Afternoon Movement Time! Get outside if possible for a longer walk or do something active in doors. This week, if it is safe for your family to go outside, take a tree walk with your child. Count, describe, observe, and notice all the trees you see as you are walking. Take pictures of trees to remember later. This is also a great time to work on using tree parts vocabulary as you are walking and talking (trunk, bark, limb, branches, sap, buds, roots, sprout, needles, twigs, flowers, and fruit).
2:00-3:00 Quiet Time- Pick a cozy, low-key activity like reading a book, coloring, journaling, taking a nap or a rest. Just enjoy some peaceful time together! Our art teacher, Mr. Matt, has put together some step by step art videos using materials you should already have at home! He recommends that an adult work through the project with their child. Click anywhere on this box, or go to: https://vimeo.com/402437082 Refer to the Preschool Activities guide or the Adapted Activities List for some suggestions for non screen time activities.
3:00-4:00 End of Day! Touch base with your child, ask them for three memorable moments in the day. What made them laugh, what frustrated them, what are they looking forward to for tomorrow?
