TUESDAY’s hunt

It was so nice to hear from everyone yesterday and find out you are all doing well. Keep up the good work and stay safe. Today we are going to listen to if you give a pig a pancake. It’s about a silly little pig that gets distracted by different things around the house. Just like in the story you are going to find things around the house in another scavenger hunt. Yesterday Hudson was the winner finding all the items the quickest and send me the picture of his time and completed list. (liepeb@dearbornschools.org)

Today after reading and listening to the story you will get to do another hunt. Make sure you are counting the items for practice. Please time them and send a picture of their time and completed sheet. Let’s see who can get the best time and I will post another shout out!

  1. Practice Writing.
  2. Practice Reading.
  3. Playing outside(social distanced) (ABC fit kids using 2 family members names or Cosmic Kids Yoga).
  4. Sending an extra I miss you especially after talking yesterday!

Thursday March 26th

Today we are going to do some listening to reading. I am going to read Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? After that listen to one or all of the stories read by the district staff. For your writing today please look out the window and make a story of what you see. Remember you are the Author and Illustrator of your story. So you are doing the picture and “writing the ABC words” for your story.

I am also sharing a link for some more fun movement activities that we did at school. www.cosmickids.com If the link doesn’t work you can just search for Cosmic Kids Yoga. There are quite a few good videos that the students can do in there own ways.

Make sure you go to the Cotter iblog and subscribe to get updates from Mrs. Modica and the program. Here is the post from Wednesday with lots of district staff reading for March is Reading Month.

Wednesday

Hope everyone is enjoying themselves and working hard.

Please send me a message or leave a comment I miss my students and would love to hear from them. Today’s story is The Three Billy Goats Gruff so listen, laugh and enjoy. Since it is supposed to be nice today I want everyone to go outside and count all the cars you can see in 1 minute, whether driving or parked. Then count all the squirrels and/or birds you see. Compare them and decide which has more. Make sure you are having a conversation about the story, the count outside and one of you daily activities at home.

Tuesday Trip

Today’s trip will be a little more challenging but also fun. You need to watch and listen to my read aloud of Polar Bear, Polar Bear then at they end you need to act out each of the animals. Finally, pick your favorite animal from the story or not and make me a representation of it and tell me why you like it. (paper, crayons, markers, pen, playdough, snow, mud, scrapes of anything… use your imagination)

Now count all the animals in the book and put it in the comments. (Hint they are all in the book more than once)

Week 2

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m still waiting on some responses to the Throw Back Thursday activities. I got an awesome photo of a schedule 1 family made to stay on a routine while at home. The routine helps to still get some academics mixed in with the other fun stuff and giving the child some control.

Today we are going to add a daily ABC gross motor chart. This will help the children stay healthy and practice their upper case alphabet.

Alphabet fit activities chart

Remember to send your questions and responses to me at Liepeb@dearbornschools.org

Throw Back Thursday

In honor of Throw back Thursday today I would like you the post a picture of you when you were a baby. Then I want you to write(draw) and tell an adult 3 things about the picture.

  1. What you are doing.
  2. What you were thinking.
  3. Describe how you are feeling.
    • Why you think you feel that way.

Now for some fun! It’s time to make play dough. You will be able to use it daily over “the 3 stay at home days”, consistency in language. This is a recipe I have used, next week I will find my school recipe which has been perfected of the last 12 years. 🙂

Small Batch Playdough

1 cup flour
1/3 cup salt
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons canola oil

Mix the dry ingredients first, then slowly pour in the wet ingredients. Knead until smooth and store in a covered container. If desired, add a few drops of food coloring to the wet ingredients before adding to the dry.

Have fun be active and remember your daily homework!
