At-Home Learning Tips
Embrace Your Culinary Creativity

Have your kids or their friends choose a recipe each week to make together via video chat. Find some more ideas to help kids stay close to their friends online and offline.

ACTIVITY: City Nature Challenge
When Sadie is sad because she can’t play in nature with her friends, the Nature Cat crew helps bring nature to the city. During school closures, kids can also find plenty of nature in the city and the City Nature Challenge shows them how! The program encourages everyone to go outside and find nature from the safety of their yards or at a safe distance in their neighborhoods. Look in the grass, on plants, under benches and tables, and up in the trees, snap photos of cool wild plants and animals and share them in a special citizen scientist app — how many different species will you find?
LESSON: Malaya and Friends
After hearing differences between American and British English, your child can join real kids in saying the sounds and words made by the letters: Mm, Kk, Pp, Jj, Bb, Ii, Ff, Uu, and Rr. With this lesson plan, your child will watch funny videos and play games while learning and practicing the alphabet!
