Our kindergarten teacher Kristi made a little game for you to play with your children!
Whenever you are walking, keep your eyes open, because there are letters hiding everywhere. Try to guess which letters she found!🕵️♂️🧐👀
Bonus challenge: In every picture the letters spell our a word. Try to guess which word it is!
You can write or let your child write the answers under each picture.
We have more time to read books now, so why not to make one monster😉
🖍Are you looking for an art break today?🖌
Follow along with a few simple folds to make this corner bookmark. Then turn it into a monster with a few snips of scrap paper! https://www.kitchentableclassroom.com/origami-bookmark/

Don't be scared, if you get a knock on your door today and are greeted by a song which goes: "Laske sisse mardisandid, marti-marti!"
Tomorrow is mardipäev or Martinmas in Estonian folk calendar and today is mardilaupäev or Martinmas' Eve. This means that children disguise themselves and go from door to door, singing and telling riddles.
Let them in and treat them with apples, candies and other sweets, because in the olden days it was believed that letting them in brings good luck for the next year!
