Homework for the Week of March 30th

Remember:

This week your child should be working on math lessons: Module 5 Lessons 1-6

Continue reading each night and working on sight words.

Don’t forget to practice writing! Your child should be sounding out words by themselves and writing down the sounds they hear. If the words have been on a previous spelling test, they should be spelled correctly in their writing.

Please reference the post below for a reminder on what your child should be practicing to keep up their learning over the next few weeks:

Spelling test and lists will be pushed back and will resume in April when we return. In the meantime, please continue working on sight words. We have attached the sight word lists for Kindergarten that need to be mastered before the end of the year. 

  • An easy way to practice these words is by writing out flash cards. We recommend you try the 6:4 method (6 words they know and 4 words they do not know) when reviewing. Practice the set of 10 words until they have mastered words and then bring in new words 4 new words and removed 4 they have mastered. 
  • Alphabet Chart
  • Sight Word Lists ** They need to know these by the end of Kindergarten! (Young 5, focus on the pre-primer list to prepare them for Kinder!) 

Reading

  • Please use Raz-Kids and reading eggs to work with your child on maintaining and improving their reading skills. I will be monitoring the online programing from home, please email if you have any questions. Students should listen to the book, read the book, and take the quiz for each book before moving on to the next story or book. My recommendation would be at least 3 books a day (following the listen, read, and quiz pattern) and 20-30 minutes on reading eggs.

Social Studies

In social studies we are learning about maps!

Have your child draw a map of their bedroom, the kitchen, or their favorite room in the house. They could also try to draw a map of their neighborhood or how to get to Haigh!

Report Cards

There will be no report cards coming home this quarter, however, all grades will be posted online for you to view through parent connect. These grades will be posted next week.

Opinion Writing

If you would like to practice some opinion writing at home with your child, this resource provides easy prompts where children can choose one item or the other. Please make sure that they use our “why” word, which is the word “because.”

For example, if the writing prompt was, “Do you like water or orange juice better?” Your child might write a sentence similar to something like this, “I like water better because it is healthier for you than orange juice.”

Raz-Kids

Raz-Kids is a great resource for your child to practice reading and comprehension together. Remember, you can also print off books from this site for your child to read to you each night, which are at their individual reading levels! Try to have them complete a lesson each day!

I have been looking at the books which your child has been reading on their account and analyzing the quizzes they take within this site. It breaks down which questions they had trouble with and let’s me see where they may need some extra help.

If I am noticing a skill which your child is consistently missing on every quiz, I will send a quick email with some feedback on the skill they are missing and how you can help them improve in this area at home.

Thank you again for everything you are doing!

Go Noodle

Parents, Guardians & Caregivers

GoNoodle is awesome fun for the whole family! We love it when everyone does our dances, sings our songs, and plays GoNoodle together. It’s a daily ritual in most elementary schools across the U.S. (and many around the world) and we think it’s a super fun thing you can do with your little ones every day too!  Plus, we have another app called “GoNoodle Games” that is an awesome way to get your kids moving in front of the screen. Sign up for our emails and in the days and weeks ahead, we will send you weekly fresh, fun ideas for you and your kids well-beyond GoNoodle. Sign up to get these on the Good Energy page.

Mathseeds

Mathseeds is a great resource to help engage your child in learning from home. They are able to practice one-to-one correspondence, comparing numbers, addition, subtraction, and much more. Try to have your child do at least one lesson per day!

Bored with Writing?

Are you and your child getting bored with writing each day? You may want to try writing a story together! You can take turns adding one sentence at a time to a story. Choose a topic you want to write about and then consider who the characters are, where the setting is, what problem occurs throughout the story, and what the solution is (how does the problem get fixed). This could be done over several days and may engage your child more in the writing process. Let your imagination go wild!

TIP: Brainstorm the characters, setting, problem, and solution before getting started! You could make a “thinking map” or “web.” Place the title of the story in the middle of the paper and then draw lines and bubbles from the title where you can think up each area of the story before getting writing to have a guide along the way!

Another fun way we spice up writing in class is by combining two animals and creating a new name for it or combining two habitats and creating a new name for the place and imagining what kind of animals live there!

If you choose to combine two animals, you can have your child pick two different animals and consider what character traits and physical attributes they want to include from each animal. Where would this hybrid animal live? What would this new animal eat? An example is combining a monkey and a lion together. We did this in class together several months back. We called our new animal a Lonkey and it had the body of a monkey, with a lions mane and tail.

Another way you could encourage writing is by having your child choose a noun (person, place, thing, or animal), then have them choose an adjectives or several adjectives to describe the noun, next have your child choose a verb (action word) which will describe what the noun is doing. Finally, have them tell where all of this is taking place (setting). An example might look like this: “The yellow hairy monster is sleeping under my bed.”

I hope this helps to give you some new ideas of how you can write at home with your child!

Social Emotional Learning

Our social worker has been coming into our classroom to work with the class on social emotional skills. We have discussed our feelings, ways to apologize, ways to ask friends to play, and different ways to greet each other.

The following link provides access to two weeks of social emotional learning which can be completed at home:
