Wee Zoom #fromweetoyou

When our kids attended a virtual birthday party for a buddy last week, we found ourselves looking for just the right background. That led to a new Wee Society collection especially for Zoom-ing -- free for download. (The backgrounds are sized for Zoom but will work on any video conferencing platform.)

We’re most excited about backgrounds created especially to thank our hard-working teachers -- just in time for Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4 - 8). 

To add a background to your next video chat, right-click on the images below to save them to your device. Then follow Zoom's directions on how to add the background to your next chat.

Write In Code #fromweetoyou

Looking for creative ways to keep kids connected with their buddies? It’s extra-fun to send messages in top secret code. Kids can create their own codes, or learn and use Morse Code — today is officially Morse Code Day! To make it easy, we’ve adapted pages from our Write On and Yay! journals as free downloads you can get here.

 

You are a Poet #fromweetoyou

It’s National Poetry Month — a perfect time to inspire young poets in your family. Where to start? We’ve been re-reading our favorite, Shel Silverstein. Advice from Leo, the 9-year-old-poet: “If you write from your heart, you can do it in a flash.”

And to make it even easier, we’ve adapted poetry prompts from Write On that you can download here for free to get started.

Make A Mask #fromweetoyou

Today our kids are making masks, and they’re coming up with their own play to perform for grandparents on Zoom. If you have a brown paper grocery bag, construction paper, and imaginative kiddos, you’re good to go. Our free downloadable templates are easy to use, or you can make up your own!
