Some ideas for lifelong learning at home


Visit museums for free: See list here.Your kids will learn about careers they might never have thought of!

Hands on: website of ASL events. Develop ASL skills! Second languages are job skills.

Read aloud and sign stories together. Better reading ability creates so many opportunities for kids.

Visit the library. There are more than 200 public libraries in NYC! Make it a routine.

Make sure captions are on when your kids watch TV.

Practice math skills online on sites like abcya.com.

Get enough exercise. Take walks together as a family. Observe the city. Talk and sign together.

Saturday Academy meets on April 5th, 12th, and 26th.
See you there!

Read Aloud Fridays
Come read for the Pre-K classes!


Last week, parent Jill Breeder kicked off our Read Aloud in the Library program with a spooky Olivia story. Please volunteer to share your love of books and reading with our children.

Plan to come and read 1-2 picture books (plan for 15 minutes or less) any Friday at 9:25, 9:45, 10:30 or 10:45 in the Little Library in Room 109. If you are a parent, you can read to your child's class and a guest class.

To sign up, please email Sara, the librarian at spaulson@47lowerschool.org. We need many volunteers to make this program a success. Hope you will join us.


Thank you!
