  • Soft ball that child can roll using one hand (tennis ball, small plastic basketball, etc)

Key Activity: Do 3 Supermans with your child.

Motor Lab Activity: Today we will do a new activity called Finger Ball Roll. This activity helps the child experience full body tactile stimulation.

Have your child sit on the floor with their legs spread apart. Using a soft ball, have them place the ball near their right foot with their right hand.

With control, have them roll the ball using only their fingers over their leg, up the side of their body, over their shoulder, then their head, and then down the opposite side of their body toward the opposite side of their body toward their opposite foot.

Have them change hands and use the same rolling pattern to return to the starting foot.

Keep up the good work, Trinity School families! It is so fun to review the worksheets and art that you are returning to school each Friday. Our portfolios are looking better and better.

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 Everything Math Card Deck to a parent or sibling after dinner!

See you tomorrow for School Day #92.
