CURIOUS MOMENT – What can you create? – Use your imagination this week to create and build! Look around your home to find materials to build with: Legos, Duplos, Play-Doh, blocks, boxes, wood, paper, blankets, sticks, string, sand, mud etc. 1) Design and build with your materials. It can be anything! 2) Talk to your family about what you made.  3) Draw a picture in a journal or on a piece of paper and write a sentence or two about what you built and why you like it.

COOKING – Make a tasty dish at home.  Write a list of instructions on how you made your tasty treat. Draw a picture of your delicious dish.  Use your maths knowledge to write a recipe for the same dish but for half the amount.

Keep a diary of your daily activities, record what you have been doing and how you have been feeling.

Storytelling – share a favourite family memory – Talk to an adult about their childhood memories. Ask them to tell you the story and to share lots of details. 2) Draw a picture of the story. 3) Retell the story aloud to your family member. 4) Write down the story or your favorite part of the story.
