New books assigned to RAZ kids

Great job everyone! I noticed some really good readers and so nice to hear your voices!!! I miss you all so much!!

Please log in and read the stories assigned. I also added a high frequency assessment. If you notice your child is struggling with a specific word, write it on a 3×5 card and practice daily.

Good luck and send pictures! See you soon!

Sharing learning at home

Thanks Samir and Jacob for sharing! Parents if you want to send me pictures of your child doing things at home academic or fun, send them to me and I will share on the blog. I know some families are looking for things to do and why not share ideas with each other! Miss you all and Hopefully we will be back to school soon! Stay safe!
Ms. Mohamed

Miss you all

We made it a week. I hope everyone is safe and enjoying time with your families. A lot of cooking and cleaning and finally teaching my boys to make different dishes and finally decluttering and reorganizing the garage lol . A days work is never done. I know this is a hard transition for you and your families being at home allll day. Trust me we are not used to it either. So I am going to give you some other things to try to be more active and engaging.

Go noodle is a fun way to engage and energize. Get your body moving and have fun. The whole family can do this.

Here are additional resources provided (optional but not required)

Remember learning at home is not meant to be sitting for 6 hours of practice. You should give lots of breaks for a 5 year old. Go outsides and play on the yard. Attached is a cool inside and outside scavenger hunt:

A few notes:

continue working on raz kids and zearn. I am checking progress and everyone is doing great! I will be changing stories on Wednesday.

If you have any questions, please email me and I will contact you as soon as I can. Have fun, enjoy and be safe!

It will have quiz questions to answer. I can track their progress. Also, go to YouTube to review R-blends, S-blends and CVC words. There are multiple videos and songs for your child to enjoy and learn. For the new sight words, practice writing them in different colors, say them in sentences and type them on the computer.

If you do not remember your log in, please email me as soon as possible and I will provide it for you. Follow the lessons per day. Do this first: Embarc has a video for each lesson, a google slide for each lesson to guide your child through it. There are fluency practice in the google slides. Next work on Zearn. It has games to practice the skills in the lessons. I can track their progress. It is good practice in general. If you do not have the material, don’t stress. Just have fun!

Please just grab an old notebook and follow the assigned writing prompt. If you do not have a notebook, collect and put it in a folder or staple pages together. Please allow 20-30 minutes for writing. You may break up the time to make it more engaging for your child.

Watch the videos and have discussion with your child. you may draw pictures to help through the discussions. If you want to make fun art projects to show what you learned, that would be awesome (not required). Take a picture and send it to me.

This may look like a lot, but please keep in mind do not force your child to sit the whole time. Break activities into parts so they enjoy working with you. I am going to miss your little ones, so send me pics and videos. Have fun, be safe and rest assured-I am an email away. Hopefully this all blows over and we see each other soon!
