• Math:
- In Week 25 the child sequences a normal day's activities and created a visual a schedule depicting the future.  This week focuses on the past.  Allow the child to explain dictating a letter or to someone over the phone the sequence of events of her day.

- Have the child think of some things he can't do now (present), but will be able to when he grows older (future).  Also, name some things he can do now (present) that he couldn't do when he was younger (past).  (Idea from Tripod)

• Letters:
- Week 28 focuses on the last two leftover characters "U" and "u."  Start by creating the characters using play dough snakes or pipe cleaners and move to writing the characters on the Characters worksheet.  Be sure to say the Letter Formation Chant as the child creates each character.

- On 1” Tracing Paper, have the child write number 0-9.  Draw a box for each number and add the green and red dots if needed. 

• Information:
- Have your child write her phone number and address on the 1” Tracing Paper. Use yellow lines and boxes along with green and red dots as a guide on numbers with which the child is still struggling.  Depending on the ability of your child, work on small sections at a time if needed. 

- In Lesson 17, your child learned how to dial 911.  Review this with play phones and practice calling 911 to report an emergency.  Have your child tell the "dispatcher" her full name, phone number, and address.  Always remind your child that 911 is for emergencies only.  Remind her what constitutes an emergency.  Also conduct a fire drill as a family.  Decide on a meeting place and discuss what doors to use and how to get out of the house.
