Hello Awesome Families! We are missing all of your children's faces and voices! Boyer is such a great space for creativity and learning, but we can have plenty of fun at home too. Check out these ideas from our educators. (If you have not scheduled a Virtual Visit with your team, it's simple! Learn more here.)



You're My Little Pumpkin Pie by Natalie Marshall:

Take some time to curl up and read with your little pumpkin pie this week! This book features cutouts and beautiful illustrations which will help keep your child engaged with the story. As you read this book together, try pointing out the things you love about your child. The more we point out the things we like to see our children doing the more likely they are to engage in other positive behaviors later on!

Five Little Pumpkins by Dan Yaccarino:

Five Little Pumpkins is an exciting and engaging book that incorporates rhyming and simple math that will be sure to keep everyone smiling! As you read together, make a point to count how many pumpkins you find on each page. This helps children build number knowledge and understanding of one-to-one correspondence (the idea that numbers correspond to specific quantities).

Fall is in full swing and it is a great time to explore pumpkins. If you are carving a pumpkin, keep the insides to encourage sensory exploration. Put the seeds and pulp into a large plastic bowl or flat pan. Encourage your child to touch and explore the mixture. If they are hesitant to touch it, put the mixture into a ziploc bag and have them touch through the plastic. You can also cut open a pumpkin or squash and have them explore the textures of its outside and inside. Talk about what you feel, see, and smell. Have your child sort out the seeds from the pulp strands. Provide your child with utensils, like a large spoon or tongs to explore as well.

Help your child recognize and identify shapes with this art project.  You can use any kind of paper, crayons, markers, glue/glue sticks/tape that you have on hand. Pre-cut 3-4 triangles, circles, squares, etc. to use as the jack-o-lantern’s facial features.  Draw or cut out a large pumpkin-shape for the jack-o-lantern’s body. Encourage your child to choose which shapes to glue on for the jack-o-lantern's eyes, nose, and mouth. Practice naming all the shapes. If you use low-stick painter's tape or washi tape, your child will be able to rearrange the shapes on the jack-o-lantern to make different faces. Try to make them as silly as possible!
PS. As we face this pandemic, philanthropic support is more crucial than ever! Gifts of all amounts will make a significant impact. Please consider making a gift today to help meet the most urgent needs of our Boyer community.
