SATURDAY MORNING (Episode
When T-Bone's "special Saturday time" with Sheriff Lewis doesn't turn
out the way T-Bone expected one week, he goes on a quest to see how others
spend their Saturdays. He learns that there are many different ways to
spend time with the people you love.
Big Idea: Be a Good Friend
Talking about family routines or building new routines will strengthen
- social and emotional skills
- life skills development
- appreciation of diversity
Saturdays are special days for many families. Talk with children about
what "Special Saturday" things they like to do. Make a list and illustrate
it. Use the text and drawings to make a "Special Saturday" book!
The Car Washing Street by Denise Lewis Patrick
Every Saturday morning, Matthew and his father sit outside and watch
their neighbors wash their cars. No money is spent, no distance is traveled,
and nothing extraordinary happens, but it's a memorable Saturday morning.
This is a lovely picture book about life as it could be, should be,
and rarely is.
Make a Saturday special by cooking together! Try these cool treats:
1 cup seedless watermelon chunks
1 cup unsweetened orange juice
1 cup water
Blend all ingredients together in a blender. Pour into small paper
cups. Place in freezer and, when juice is partially frozen, insert sticks
or small plastic spoons for handles. When the pops are completely frozen,
unmold them by pouring hot water over bottoms of cups.
