Dear Family Member:
This week our class will be focusing on how people find solutions to problems. We will be discussing how compromises helped to resolve differences in the early days of this country’s history.
Here are some activities that you can do with your child to reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing.
You and your child will look at pictures that represent solutions to possible problems. After discussing the problem, your child will write two or three sentences describing the problem and the solution.
