  • Picture Study Introduction Video – 5 minutes

  • Lifeboat painting by Bo Bartlett
  • Lifeboat coloring sheet
  • Half sheet of cardstock
  • Crayons, colored pencils or watercolor paints
  • Scraps of paper, pipe cleaner or other materials to make a stick figure of themselves

Study Lifeboat with your child, following the procedure outlined in the video above.

Let your child color their lifeboat and half sheet of cardstock to look like the painting. They may then make a figure of themselves and add it to their version of the painting. See my example below.

This is a great chance to point out more details in the painting, such as colors and the details!

We will be collecting this reproduction of Lifeboat on Friday so that we can add it to your child’s art portfolio.

  • Literature – 15 minutes


Study the picture with your child before you begin listening and ask your child what they remember from yesterday’s reading.

Then listen along as Mrs. Resendez reads to us from The Adventures of Winnie-The-Pooh. In today’s reading, we’ll hear the conclusion of the story Eeyore Loses A Tail.

Way to go, parents! Wednesday is in the books! If your child is eager, they may continue their math problems or keep working on their reproduction of Lifeboat. Make sure you practice one of the tongue twisters over dinner!

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 tomorrow for School Day #84.
