"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Home Challenge/Project:  I know how hard it can be to take children grocery shopping with you, especially if you are taking more then one child.  One way to make the trip more manageable is to get them involved with the shopping by making them your special helper.  Before you go to the store take some time to go through the store ad and have your child cut out items from the Ad that your family needs that week.  Glue the items to his/her grocery list.  When you get to the store give him a pen or pencil and mark the items off his/her list once you get them.  
Make meal and snack time a math lesson.  Have them help you divide up small items in bowls or plates.  You could ask them to put three carrot sticks on every plate.  You can also give them a number with a card on it and have them identify the number and then they help you count to make sure they get that number of the snack.  
One other fun activity you can do at the dinner table is see if you can name a food from every letter of the alphabet.  A for Apple, B for Bread, C for C for Cookie...etc.

Upcoming Events:  October 13th and 14th Field Trip to Macey's.  All parents are welcome to come.
