Activities for Home
Visit with your child about baby animals. Ask your child if she knows how mother animals take care of their babies. What special things might baby animals need? How are baby animals different from their parents? Consider visiting a petting zoo or pet shop to look at the baby animals. You may also search images.google.com for pictures of baby animals to share with your child.
Visit with your child about which animals make good pets. Name some baby animals and then talk about why they would or would not be a good pet. Invite your child to name some animals as well. What is your child’s favorite animal?
Enjoy a purple snack to reinforce the color of the month. Suggestions include grape juice, jelly sandwiches, purple cabbage cole slaw, grapes, and plums.
Review the letter Y by talking about yawning. Look in the mirror with your child and pretend to yawn. Why do we yawn? Explain that we yawn when we are tired. When we yawn, we take a big gulp of air to help wake us up!

Character Card

I am patient.

 
Little Kitty
I love little Kitty,
Her coat is so warm,
And if I don’t hurt her,
She’ll do me no harm.
So I’ll not pull her tail,
Nor drive her away,
But Kitty and I
Very gently will play. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Look for Books
The best way to learn which books your child enjoys is to read children’s books –lots of them!

Cooking Together
 
When cooking with young children, allow them to help in a safe way with mixing, pouring, rolling, mashing, shaking, etc. Use words to describe what you are doing and what you plan to do next. Talk about what you see, smell, feel, and hear.
