  • Geography – Model of My Room – 15 minutes


  • Blocks, Legos, or other household items

Prompt your student to build a model of their bedroom out of blocks, Legos or other household items. You may want to do one too, or do one of your own room.

Have your student get a small toy that can walk around in their map. Using their small toy, ask them to give you a tour of their model room. Older students can make a more elaborate model with more details or can do a model of several rooms or even of their own house. 

Here is an example of a classroom model made out of wooden blocks:

Upload a picture of your child’s model to The Mighty Network!

  • Literature – 15 minutes

We have finished The Classic Adventures of Brer Rabbit! Find a good book to read this afternoon or evening before bed.

Happy end of Week 8, Kinder families. One more week to go!

As always, reading with your child in the evenings is a great way to grow their mental word bank and fluency, and they may want to show their Math Card Deck to a parent or sibling after dinner!

If you find yourselves with more free time, please refer to our Additional Resources page for some great websites to explore.

See you next week for School Day #103!
