Dear Wareham Families,
February is a short month, to begin with, and for school time, it is even shorter, with February vacation and now these two snow days. There are many different ways to keep the learning going while your child is out of school.
Take a visit to the Wareham Free Library. Our library has much to offer families. In addition to quiet studying spaces, they have a number of activities planned each month. Here are some of the events for February:
Feb 11 10:00 AM Playgroup
Feb 14 10:30 AM Winter Storytime
Feb 16 10:30 AM Winter Storytime
Feb 16 6:00 PM Winter Storytime
Feb 21 10:30 AM Winter Storytime
There are also ways to keep the momentum of learning going from home via online websites. Some of our favorites are individualized and keep track of student’s progress such as:
While others offer tips, resources and fun games for students such as:
During these days off, I hope you will set aside time to read together as a family. Research shows that maintaining at least twenty minutes each day of reading, will help prevent learning loss during time away from the classroom. Also, reading together as a family helps promote a love of reading and learning, and creates bonds and memories that can last a lifetime.
Best wishes for a great weekend, and stay safe in this unpredictable New England weather.
Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
