Week 1 Learning
These activities are not divided by days, but rather they are divided by 3 Activities for each subject area to gives you more flexibility.
Have a great day! If you need a break...after lunch, Pre-K always has a 40 minute rest time (where we lay quietly and read books, or sleep if we want to). You can tell your child that their teacher says they still have to rest even at home, because this is still a school day! :)
