Rather, they are intended to build fine and gross motor skills, creativity, and imaginative skills. As students complete an activity, they may color that square in, and will be sharing their calendar with the class at the end of the month. In addition to the choice board, I ask that you read at home with your student each evening and practice weekly sight words. At times, I may send home specific activities that would benefit your student. Regardless, these activities should take no more than ten minutes of your evening, and many times, it will be much less.
