Parent Corner

Check back each week for a new idea to try with your children!

This week's Parent Corner Idea (March 29, 2020)

A Neighbourhood Scavenger Hunt

Have you and your kids been going on more walks recently? Try creating a list of items (better yet get your kids to create the list) that you can look for on the day’s walk. Each day could be a different list. Here’s a list of ten items to get you started: a green car, a park bench, a yield sign, a ball, a bird, a colourful door, a basketball hoop, a fire hydrant, a cat, a For Sale sign.

Must-Have Books

Are you looking to begin a library for your home or classroom? Are you looking for a gift for a particular age? Refer to these must-have book lists for starting ideas. Some of these picks are new; many are classics.

The age guidelines, are just that, guidelines. Of course, most of these books can be enjoyed at various ages!
