Here is a link to an awesome hip hop dance routine for your kids to learn. Challenge them to teach themselves and put on a performance using the tutorial or form a family wide dance crew, up to you!


If you have a full length mirror, it’s great to be able to see yourself dancing.


This is a great activity for a rainy day where kids can expend energy safely inside.

Once you have the routine down and no longer need the tutorial with the dance instruct - here is a link to the music by itself. https://soundcloud.com/mihrankirakosi…

Interviews

By Carra


We are all learning how to adjust to our new schedules without leaving our homes but still maintaining relationships and checking in with our friends and families.


Here is an activity that can be done through the great technology we have now-a-days. Whether it is through a phone call/email/face-time/ letter in the mail, YOU are going to be interviewing your loved ones. Here is a list of “interview questions” you can ask your grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, cousins, family friends…ANYONE, (even if they live out of state)! If you are giving the interview, go through and highlight the questions you want to ask, don’t forget to be writing down the responses, taking notes, and asking follow up questions!


Attached below are two types of interviews. One,is for someone who is an “elder” and the second one is for someone who is around the same age as you.


Link to questions in a view-able google doc- https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Eg6KmZUlgLw3FrrsRyrn-UJkWbNybxUusRzsXBpvlt4/edit?usp=sharing


You'll need to download the file as word file to print it


Parents: we all know, on the spot questions are hard. It might be a good idea to send the questions over to the person your child is interviewing to give them time to think of answers before the “actual” interview. :)


Interviewers: Some of the questions might not apply to the person you are interviewing, if that is the case, you can write N/A which means not applicable.




Have a marvelous Monday everyone. Back at it tomorrow with a new slate of activities. Tune in later today for the Daily Drawing and then on the facebook page at 4:00 for the next Harry Potter chapter reading.
