Dear WSRA Families,
Thank you to all of our participants, family members and staff who joined us for another week of virtual programs!
Below is the schedule of WSRA’s FREE virtual programs for the week of January 25. The Program Lead will open up the Zoom rooms approximately 5 minutes before each program, and each program will last up to 40 total minutes. Though it is not required, participants are encouraged to use the webcam through their computer, tablet or smart phone to assist with social interaction. When logging into Zoom, we ask that participants type in their first name only (not last name). At this time, we will not be requiring families to register in advance, so participants and staff are able to attend virtual programs when able and interested and without advance notice.
MONDAY, JANUARY 25
(All ages) ‘READY…SET…IMAGINE!’ with Amber
Join your friends as we create a winter theme story. We will get our creative juices flowing as we build off each other’s thoughts to create a fun mad lib story. After our story is written grab a piece of paper to draw what you believe the story would look like on paper. If you wish you can share it with the group. Supplies: white paper and pencil, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
(All ages) ‘MOVEMENT MONDAY’ with Jess
In today's program- We will be doing a super FUN Shrek Dance workout, so get ready to move your body from head to toe! J
(Ages 15 & Older) ‘TALK & DINE’ with Tracy
Let's enjoy each other’s company over dinner (your choice of cuisine) in the comfort of your home. If you won't be eating dinner during the time of this program, please still join us to socialize and catch up with friends! NOTE: We will continue to use a Zoom feature called ‘breakout groups’. With this feature, we will break into two groups to give everyone the chance for more meaningful socialization during the program.
