SUMMER "Home School" IDEAS
Read! Go to the Public Library and you'll be amazed at what you find. .Borrow audiobooks for car trips.
Exercise! Play games with friends. Practice cooperation, winning and losing.
Do something to help others. Everyone needs a favor and those skills transfer to real life work.
Make yourself do something you thought you didn't like or couldn't do. Write letters. Keep up with the local, national and international news. Plant a garden and make scientific observations. Make a chart, graph or sketch.
It is great that parents check teachers' blogs regularly. For some subjects, the blogs are complete homework help, class notes and links to even more information.
My blog will be short. It might be a variety of topics. I get carried away with inspirational writing. Academic cheerleading for the students! I like to post news about things to do in Chicago. I also have many recommendations about special education for parents to read .
Stay tuned. And please send comments or emails any time.
Thanks for all your support.
And what a great year it will be. Ray is truly a wonderful school full of hard working, imaginative and kind students.
I will update my blog every Monday morning. I will try to keep it short and sweet! Remember to look at other teachers' blogs; they include very cool links and it's good to know what's going on in the other classrooms.
UPCOMING EVENT: Open House Thursday September 22, 5:00 PM.
Visit your child's classrooms. Hear from the administration. Stay for the PTO meeting.
Finally, enjoy this beautiful weather and take advantage of opportunities the City of Chicago may provide in your neighborhood. It's surprising to see what's out there.
Thank you for paying the $85.00 fee in the office.
