ROCK YOUR SOCKS DAY: World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), observed on March 21 every year, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome. So, wear your most colorful, spunky socks in celebration of people with Down syndrome!
**“BUILD IT” SHARING DAY**: Thursday, March 28th is set for the children to share one project (animal/building/car/toy) with a small group, which they have assembled at home using little to no parent help. The intent is for the children to start planning and apply principles learned during the “Building unit” when creating their project.
IDEAS?? They can use found/recycled items like milk caps, small boxes, popsicle sticks, tubes, pipe cleaners to create an animal/building/ car/toy using tabs, flaps, staples, tape, glue, elastics. They may use preowned commercial products like Lego/ Duplo/ K’nex/ Gearworks/ Snapcubes to create an animal/building/car/ toy. They will be divided into small groups to share their creation!! Feel free to send these a day early.
