Mayo Nursery School's 3s Learning at Home Boxes will contain a month’s worth of educational activities. The activities will be broken into 4 weeks and will include: 2 projects/crafts, a letter based activity, a number based activity and a fine motor activity per week all with a theme or book in mind. The weekly activities are meant to simulate what we would accomplish in two days in the classroom but you can use the materials as you would like and how it works for your child/family. You may do two days of activities or spread out the activities over a full week.
With the purchase of a box, you will have access to links for additional books/stories or activities to go with the theme. These links can be found below, through a password protected portal. You will also receive video and/or photos of Ms. Julie modeling the project for the child. Additionally, because your child will be “learning from home” we would like to include the families in a virtual “meeting” once a month to see Ms. Julie read a book or have something for the kids to see/do that relates to the theme. This will be scheduled and linked in an email and offered only 1 time each month. This virtual meeting will allow for the children to interact with Ms. Julie and each other. This will not be a requirement but just another option to maximize some of the learning.
We ask that you have the following supplies at home to help with the completion of activities: glue sticks, crayons, markers, beginner (fat) #2 pencils, scissors, dry erase markers. We will supply craft objects like googly eyes, pom poms, etc.
Please note that the boxes will be offered for pick-up only at this time. A day/time will be specified each month for families to come to MNS for a drive-up pick up.
