    I am attaching another idea for letter-sound practice for all of the children. Please allow your child to watch the video and then encourage them to create a drawing of items that start with the letter t. Families could also extend the activity by clapping the syllables of the words that start with the t sound.

    Read aloud of I’ll Wait Mr. Panda, after reading with your child encourage them to draw about the story. Open-ended questions like what was your favorite part or what character do you like best build vocabulary.
    Try to encourage your child to label their pictures with words or letters.
    Another activity would be to have your child tell you what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story.

    Patterns are all around at home. Have your child look for patterns in your home, many clothes have striped patterns or have them create patterns with small toys, stickers or drawings. Understanding patterns helps children later with higher mathematical skills.

    Encourage your child to order a collection of household items by size, from biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest. Reenforce or introduce related math words such as big, bigger biggest, tall, taller, tallest or small, medium and large. Encourage them to find things that are the same size using the vocabulary word equal.
    Another activity would be to sort the items into groups by size, count the objects and talk about what group has the least what group has the most
