    "Sounds of Friday" Countdown to Summer

    At the end of every school year, Mr. S and I enjoy celebrating a countdown of how many weeks are left until summer arrives for our students, and we want to keep that tradition going!  Each of the last five Fridays, we would love for your child to celebrate with us by having fun making some noise related to the theme for that day!  If they would like to add to the fun, they can wear a favorite hat or dress up for each week too!  Please feel free to share any pictures or videos of your child making noise with us each week!  We look forward to celebrating the countdown to summer with everyone!

    Friday is Stepping Up/Family Fun Day


    Happy Friday!

    This month we are singing the nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet.

    Those of you who are using starfall it's under Nursery Rhymes on the right.

    Today is Stepping Up/Family Fun Day.  I hope you enjoy all the fun activities Mr.S and I planned for you. Congratulations to all who are stepping up today.  You have so many exciting activities ahead of you at the PLC.  Remember today is Sounds of Friday.  We are taking off number 3 in our countdown to summer. The count is 2, 1.  It's getting close. Only 2 more Fridays are left of school.  Have a great weekend and enjoy this very special day!

     Family Fun Day Activities

    Tower Toss: Build a tower using plastic cups and try to knock it over by throwing a ball at it.

    Clothespin Drop: Stand next to a small bucket and hold a clothespin high above it. Drop the clothespin and see if you can get it to land in the bucket.  If you don't have clothespins you could use a popsicle stick or pencil instead.

    Bucket Toss: Try to toss a ball into any type of bucket or laundry basket.  Choose a distance to throw from that works best for you.

    Balloon Volley: Hit a balloon up in the air by yourself or with your family and try to keep it from falling to the ground.

    Pillow Case Race: Stand inside of a pillow case and try to hop across the floor to a designated finish line.  You can also try sitting on the pillow case and sliding across the floor.

    Photo Booth: Send a picture of your child participating in the activities wearing their Stepping Up shirts/school spirit colors.

    Picnic: Bring a blanket or chairs ouside and have lunch/snack together as a family to celebrate.
