STEM Focus
When children play they are mastering a wide range of skills that help support areas of their learning. Make up a scary (or un scary) story with your child, or tell a story of your day. What did you do? Where did you go? What happened? Bring in technology and take photos of your outings and make a photo book with your child. Write or type up their words to make their very own book to read.
