    • Parents: Have your child lie down on their back, spreading the legs apart and their arms away from their body.  Use the chalk to draw an outline all the way around their body.  Then have the child draw their face, hair, add clothes if they want.  Finally have them write as much of their name as they are comfortable with.  Please take a picture and send to me so we can post it on Cluster.
    • Parents,  This was a favorite activity on the roof.  They like to see how big they really are and to fill in the details of their features.

  • Zoom Circle 9:30 Virtual Field Trip to Sweet Farm in Half Moon Bay
  • Join GotoMeeting
    • https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/115702789
    • Note this meeting is hosted in Go To Meeting so you will need the app to participate
    • We are going to Sweet Farm in Half Moon Bay, a farm animal rescue farm.  Here is a link to tell you more about it: https://www.sweetfarm.org/
    • This is a field trip for the Birds,Owls and Penguins.  They will show us some farm animals and tell us about them and the farm.
    • Given that we have been talking about seeds and planting, this outing is a natural extension of that learning thread.

Learning Domains:  Social-Emotional, Cognitive, Listening Skills, Science Exploration

  • Activity 1: Baa Baa Sheep Sponge Painting
    • Materials Needed: Colored Paper, White Activity Paint, Unused Kitchen Sponge or Kitchen scourer, Black Marker
    • Parent Instructions:  Have your child take a piece of colored paper.  Have them dip the sponge or kitchen scrubber into the white paint and then make prints of the paint on the paper in the shape of a fluffy lamb.  Using the kitchen sponge or scrubber will give the paint some texture.  When the paint dries, have them draw legs and a head.  They can use other colors to fill in as much detail around the lamb as they like; grass, sun, etc.  No worries if they get carried away with the sponge painting.  They can make a whole flock of sheet or turn it into a snowy day.  The idea is the sensory stimulation and fun. Take a picture and send it to me.
