Let's Be Friends by Amanda Miller  
5, 4, 3, 2, 1... being friends is so much fun!  
Friends care about each other's feelings. Knowing how a friend is feeling helps you be a good friend yourself!  
  • Brainstorm a few different feelings, like  happy sad surprised , and  mad  
  • In the mirror, your child can practice making a face that shows each feeling.  
  • Then let your child make a face to see if you can guess the feeling!  
  • You can also try looking at emojis on a smartphone together. Can you and your child come up with a feelings word for 10 faces?  
Here's a
for you!
P arents- Have you ever heard of a Victory Garden?  I've been doing some research on building a garden (I've never had time, but now with the whole family home, no excuses).  In my research I keep hearing about Victory Gardens.  I thought I'd share some information I have found.  Good luck and send me pictures if you do make one.    

    H ave a wonderful 1st Day of April!!  Happy to see the sun out, so get outside and soak up the fresh air.  Talk to you all on Friday.
