We wanted to let our St Stephen’s teachers know that we think you are SUPER and we miss you dearly!


Message From: Mrs. Kutsko for the Blue and Dolphin Classes , for the class

Hello everyone!
I hope everyone is doing well. I know the old saying “April showers bring May flowers” but I would be grateful for some warm, sunny days!  
I hope that all of you have a chance to practice writing your names. You all were doing such a great job with your writing!  If you get tired doing your name look in a favorite book and try writing some new words. Making a card for someone special would be a fun thing to do!
Here are some other ideas to practice your letters and your fine motor skills. 
Use water and a paint brush to write letters on the sidewalk. 
Make letters out of Lego Blocks. 
Use chalk to write letters on the sidewalk. 
Read a favorite book and look for the letters in your name on each page. 
Write your name in rainbow colors. 
Ask an adult to help you staple some papers together to make a book. Write a story           
and draw pictures.  When you are done, read your story to your family.                                  
Ask an adult to put a thin layer of salt on a tray or a plate.  Use your finger to “write”       
letters, words or your name in the salt.  

I hope you find some of these ideas fun to do.  Take care and know that we miss all of you very much!

Draw a picture of you and your family!  Tell a story of what you and your family are doing in the picture. Would love for you to post a video or photo of your picture and story, so we can all see your work of art!

We have all missed our students and hope that everyone is staying safe and having fun at home!

Here are some of the things I have been doing over the last month:

While walking my dog Maria around my neighborhood and through the woods near my house I see lots of fun things like chalk drawings, messages on rocks and lots of beautiful flowers and even some animals including turtles, deer, bunnies, hawks and the occasional stuffed animal.

I have been spending time cooking with my kids, we even made mango coconut icecream and I have been playing board games and card games with my entire family.

I have really enjoyed having weekly google chat playdates with the Green class just seeing your faces makes me smile.

I have attached two different scavenger hunt activities here I hope you will enjoy!

Happy Earth Day Everyone!  We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Today is the day we celebrate our Earth. There are so many things we can do to care for our planet. We all know to recycle and reuse the things we can. And we can take care of our own spaces. Put our toys away and clean our rooms.  With our grownup’s help we can clean up our yards and the spaces around our homes.
A fun thing to do it to take empty boxes, empty paper towel and toilet paper rolls and pieces of cardboard to make something.  You can take an empty box or a paper bag and decorate it with markers or crayons.  Maybe it can be a home for a special toy.  When I was little I would make beds for my dolls and stuffed animals.  And we know superheroes all need a place to sleep too!  An old shoe box can become a playhouse or fort for your small toy figures.  As always be sure to ask Mom or Dad for permission first.  
Can you think of other things we can do to take care of our Earth?
I hope everyone has a chance to get outside and enjoy this beautiful spring day! 
Take care and we miss you all!

Hello everyone. I found these letters in my house and need help making sure the sounds and the pictures match up. Watch the video, practice with me identifying the letter,?saying the sound, and checking in we can find something that starts with that letter sound.
