YOUR.home.activities

friendly Friday, 2/9

  • Whew…that snow just keeps coming down! It should make for a lot of  outside fun in the snow — eh? What is YOUR favorite thing to do in the snow?
  • Jay and I just arrived at the airport all safe and sound and  trust that you are home now safe, too. Please give your parent (or other driver) a big hug from me for arriving early AND a big hug from you for all the extra time they took picking you up and taking you home today in all the weather.
  • Reminder that this break is dedicated to expressing kindness — especially with your family members.
  • Everyone has an HA grid that is designed just for your ease in seeing which activities to complete each day. You can always work ahead if you want to skip a day later. Eager to see who joins our SoL when we return.

Here are some dialog items for your chats with parents or caregivers tonight. Choose at least 7 and print the bolded words neatly on the back of your BMBS with 2/9 above them. Put an * next to those that were your favorites to talk about.

  • To what two states are T and Jay traveling over our break?
  • Who are our STLC Slice of Lifers now? Anyone new? When will YOU join us?
  • Describe the new venture of the Elon Musk’s SpaceX company?
  • Describe what is inside of the Falcon Heavy rocket AND what music is playing as it orbits?
  • What is T hoping will be missing from the end of Whoop from now on?
  • Where did you go on the PE 3-mile hike on Thursday?
  • Name at least 5 of the ingredients in our STLC mac and cheese OR in the smoothies we had this week.
  • Who has the co-op meal when we return from break?
  • On which two continents did you score highest when you took the My Geo tests this week? Which will you practice most?
  • What is a “monster” test in STLC geography?
  • What is something you are looking forward to in this next week?

Sending wishes that we all make wise and kind choices over this break — so that there is harmony and joy in our homes. HOW will we show our gratitude? Let’s trade something you think everyone else will really want when we return. Happy trails, muchachos dulces. Hasta luego.

 

trustworthy Tuesday, 2/6

  • Stone Soup is tomorrow. Be sure to pack your veggie sharing item and bring it tomorrow  so that our soup is yummy and nutritious AND so that you can enjoy it with us. Several of you already planned out your items, but once in a while it has been left behind. We have an over abundance of people bringing carrots, so feel free to switch to something else if that is a possibility.
  • Caroline, reminder that you need to bring at least one extra STLC shirt for this week at RH.
  • Some of you forgot your pjs, pillows, and PE shoes last week — Yikes! Be SURE to bring them tomorrow.
  • I heard from a few of you about whether or not your parents would like to use a BMBS over our break, but not from all. Please let me know by writing “Yes BMBS” or “No BMBS” at the top right of your BMBS sheet if you have not already done so.
  • We can use any many receipts, bills and menus as you can bring in. It makes Slice of Life more fun and realistic.

Here are some dialog items for your chats with parents or caregivers tonight. Choose at least 5 and print the bolded words neatly on the back of your HA log with 2/5 above them.

  • Who worked with us today who has not been here this year so far AND when will she return? Did you work with her?
  • Who were our Slice of Lifers today? Anyone new? When will YOU join us?
  • How many members are in “Dominic’s” SoL family? Can you remember the ages of his children?
  • Who went to Trader Joes with Jay today AND why?
  • Describe what happened when red, green and blue light is added together.
  • Describe how coding was used in the videos Jay showed today from the Science and Industry museum. What was so cool about it?
  • What is something you can think (or pray) tonight that could be supportive to Jordan’s family in terms of their loss?

…sending wishes that we all make wise and kind choices for ourselves and others tonight and in the morning AND that we show our gratitude to our parents for each thing they do for us tonight and on the way to RH in the morning. Lets trade something chewy tomorrow. Happy trails, muchachos dulces. Hasta mañana.
