Dipped in milk

Or eaten plain

Chocolate like silk

Cookies & Cream;

Peanut butter

Nutter Butter


Who to blame

Sneaking in the night

Only for a bite

Sweet and touchy

Creamy and crunchy

Let the sugar rush come

Oh, now hand me a tum

Upset tummy

My nose is runny

What's this i hear?

I can't take sweets as I please?

Oh, come on...

You can't blame the cookies!

(M) Gross Motor Skills Activity:  
Cookie Musical Chairs.  Set some chairs (3 or 4) in a circle.  Place a cookie on one of the chairs.  Play some music while your child walks or dances around the chairs.  When the music stops your child must look to see if they are standing by the chair with the cookie.  After 2 or 3 times around the chairs, let your child find the cookie!  Enjoy!

(T) Shape/Color  This week you will teach the shape of a circle.

A circle's like a ball.
A circle's like a ball.
Round and round it never stops,
A circle's like a ball.
  • Collect 3 - 5 everyday objects in the shape of a circle... ie: mirror, cookies, plate, make one out of felt, etc... to share with your child and discuss.
  • Walk through your home looking for circles.
  • Cut circles out of play dough or cookie dough... bake the cookies!
  • Put a drawing of a circle on your learning poster.

(W) Letter  The letter this week is the letter Ii.
I – body, roof, floor
i – down, dot

Big I starts with one side of a door.  All it needs is a roof and a floor.
Little I goes down, it’s an ice cream treat.  Add a sprinkle on top and it’s ready to eat.

  • Give your child a printout of the (capital) letter I to color.  ~Letter Printouts~
  • Teach your child to trace the shape of the letter I using his finger.  You can trace in pudding, finger paint, a shallow tray (cookie sheet) filled with rice or beans, etc.
  • Point out the letter I in signs, cereal boxes, etc.
  • Post the letter I on your learning poster.
I scream,
You scream,
We all scream

Itsy bitsy spider
Went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain.
And itsy bitsy spider
Went up the spout again.

(TH) Number  The number this week is the number 9.
9 – Make a hoop and then a line.
      That’s the way to make a nine!
  • Show your child 9 objects to count, or eat 9 crackers, 9 cheerios, etc.
  • Show your child the written symbol (numeral) for 9 and put on your learning poster.

(F) Nursery Rhyme  The nursery rhyme this week is The Queen of Hearts.  Recite often!
The Queen of Hearts
She baked some tarts,
All on a summer's day;
The Knave of Hearts
He stole those tarts,
And with them ran away.
