Learning During Winter Break
The students will soon be out of school for winter break but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. There are several real-life ways you can keep your kids learning, maybe without them even realizing it!
Have your child help measure ingredients when cooking to gain a better understanding of fractions.
Bake cookies and ask your child to count them by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.
Read the directions for a new game to practice for technical reading skills.
Write a thank you card to a relative for a gift. This not only develops writing skills, it is also a courtesy that is sometimes forgotten and always appreciated.
Plan a visit to the swimming pool at Sherburn Elementary to maintain those skills and stay active.
Use the internet to explore interesting holidays around the world in the winter.
Make a trip to the grocery store to practice math skills by comparing products by weight and price to determine which is a better value.
Compare the temperatures for three places your child would like to visit someday to learn more about climate and geography.
There are so many ways you can keep the learning going year-round. These real-life activities encourage communication and help your child.
