Hi families! Here are our activities and videos for today:


We have transitioned to sending out our weekly activities on Sunday evening. Here is the document with our activities for this week. And here is our countdown chain activity, to countdown to the last day of school.


*** If you have not coordinated picking up countdown chain materials with Rachel yet, please do so.


Singing: Teacher Rachel sings “One Light, One Sun” and talks about how singing can make us feel hopeful and connected.


Reminder: Make a Share and Tell video! As we do every weekend, we’re asking you for a short clip (or pictures or a written answer if sending it to us in video format doesn’t work for you!) for our Share and Tell video. Please try to send it by 2pm on Sunday.


Parents: We are currently working on a video in which we discuss why we believe we should be having hard conversations with children (specifically about police violence and racism) and tips on how to have those conversations. We hope to get this video to you at some point today or, at the latest, on Monday. Please be on the lookout for that and if you want to hold off on having certain conversations with your children until then, know that that is okay. But please also know that no conversation will be perfect and that making mistakes is okay. The first conversation will be (and must be) one of many, and will be a process of making mistakes and learning and growing.


We hope you are safe and well. You are in our hearts. Have a wonderful weekend!


Rachel Ford and Patricia Houston
