Day 10

Hello Families,

Today was supposed to be our field trip to The Health Exploration Station. Unfortunately we are all stuck at home but that doesn’t mean we can’t go on a virtual trip!

Today I would like your child to “visit” the San Diego Zoo! Just click on the link at the end of this paragraph and it will take you to the website. Explore all the different animals that they have and watch some of the live cams. There are even games for your child to play. When your child is finished with their field trip, have them draw a picture of their favorite animal and send it to me. Here is the link to the zoo: https://kids.sandiegozoo.org/animals

Have fun at the zoo!

Day 9

Hello Families,

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a safe and fun weekend! ! Today we are going to look at the next letter in the alphabet, W!

To learn the sound the letter W makes we will use Starfall. On this site click on the letter W. https://www.starfall.com/h/abcs/

After looking at the site have your child write the letter W on the whiteboard. They will write the Capital W and the lowercase w 5 times each. If they need a visual use this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxvPbeQ0kIg

When your child is finished writing the letter W take a picture of their work and send it to me. Then let them draw a picture on their whiteboards. Tray to ask them to draw something that starts with the letter W, like a watermelon or a magic wand. If you would like an added challenge create a list of words that have W in it. These words can be sight words like:

  • we
  • won
  • will
  • with
  • was
  • when
  • were

The motion activity for today is to use your body to write the letter! Follow along to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQZ-c3_EDj4

Don’t forget to send me the pictures of your child writing the letter W and if you have any questions at all feel free to ask me on remind, here on the blog or email.

Have a blast learning at home,

Mrs. Lyons

Day 8

Hello Families!

Today we are going to do a drawing. I would like your child to draw a picture of a friend that they miss from our class. Make sure they write their name on their art and if they want to include a message like “I miss you” they can! When they are finished with their picture, send me a photo of it and tell me who they drew. I will then forward that drawing to the kid that they drew to help our friends keep in touch!

For their motion activity today I would like your child to pick 3 of the dances from Koo Koo Kangaroo (https://family.gonoodle.com/channels/koo-koo-kanga-roo). These are a classroom favorite so get ready to boogie!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Take the time to make some wonderful memories with your family. As always, you can reach me on remind and through email!

Day 7

Hello Families,

Today we are going to work on our names! Most of us are pretty good at writing our first names so today we are going to work on first and last names together. When writing their names encourage your child to write down the letters that they know go in their name first, just to see where they are at. After, if your child needs help with some of the letters then write their name on a separate sheet of paper for them to copy. Writing the last name will be hard for some kids and that’s ok because they are still learning! They will write their full name 3 times. When they are done please send me a picture.

For an added challenge for some kids, have your child write their middle name as well. Here is an example of what their papers could look like:

Your child can either write first and last name 3 times OR first, middle and last names 3 times.

For the motion activity today your child will do specific movements for each letter in their name! Here are the movements your child will do:

And lastly, our school school worker wants to make sure that every family in our school has the resources they need and are feeling ok. She is asking for families to fill out this form:

Hope everyone is happy and healthy. Send me your pictures on remind or my email as always! If you need to talk do not hesitate to reach out!

Day 6

Hello Families,

Today we are going to work on counting. Your child will count things around the house. You can use this worksheet as a reference if you like (you do not have to print it out, you can easily redraw it on a sheet of paper):

Your child can make tally marks or dots to represent how many things they found and then when they finished they will count how many they found and write the number. You might have to help them with writing the number. Send me a picture of your child’s completed work.

For the motion activity I would like you to go on a walk and count the following items that you see:

  • How many trees?
  • How many red cars?
  • How many blue cars?
  • How many black cars?
  • How many plants?

As always you can reach me here on the blog, on remind or through email. Have a fun day counting!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun weekend! I loved seeing the pictures of your child playing and helping make those delicious desserts! Today we are going to look at the next letter in the alphabet, V!

To learn the sound the letter V makes we will use Starfall. On this site click on the letter V. https://www.starfall.com/h/abcs/

After looking at the site have your child write the letter V on the whiteboard. They will write the Capital V and the lowercase v 5 times each. If they need a visual use this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OrP63EGU98

When your child is finished writing the letter V take a picture of their work and send it to me. Then let them draw a picture on their whiteboards. Tray to ask them to draw something that starts with the letter V, like a volcano.

Have A Good Weekend!

Hello Families,

Thank you for sending me the pictures of your children working from home. I miss everyone and it was so nice to see their smiling faces! This has been an interesting week and I am still trying to get used to the whole online learning thing, so thank you for your patience and willingness to try new things.

Since it is the weekend I am not going to give an assignment for the kids to do. I am just going to say that you should take the weekend to do fun things as a family. Have a family movie night, play a game together or just bake something delicious together! There are so many fun things to do at home. Feel free to send pictures of any yummy desserts you guys make together. Not being able to have flour means no yummy desserts at my house 🙁

Stay home if you can, stay healthy, and wash your hands often! If you have any questions or even just wanna chat and say hello, feel free to message me on Remind or on email.

Day 4

Hello Families!

Today I we are going to something fun! The materials we will need are two different colors of paper, a pencil, scissors and glue. What I want your child to do is to cut shapes out of one of the pieces of paper. The shapes they can cut are:

Circle, oval, triangle, rectangle, square, and diamond

With the pencil show your child how to make each of the shapes, then let your child draw them. When you are done filling your paper up with ask them the following questions:

  • How many shapes did you make?
  • Which shape did you make the most of?
  • Which shape did you make the least of?
  • How many lines did you use to make your shapes?

After that have your child cut their shapes out of their paper and glue to to the other color to make some wonderful art! Don’t worry if they don’t cut their shapes out perfectly they are still practicing those skills. When they are done have them write their names on it and then send me a picture of their art.

Here is a fun motion activity you can do with your child!

I love getting all the photos from my preschool friends, I miss everyone so much and I hope to see everyone soon!

Day 3

Hello Families,

I hope all is well and everyone is staying sane at home! I loved getting the pictures of the kids doing the work mostly because I miss seeing their faces everyday. Keep up the good work and keep the pictures coming. Some families had a hard time sending things through Remind. If it doesn’t go though you can always email them to me at lyonss@dearbornschools.org.

Today’s assignment involves reading! I would like your child to read you a book and for you to read one to your child. That is two different books to read today. Please send me a picture of your child holding up the books you both read.

As always I have a movement activity for you to do as well. Follow this link https://family.gonoodle.com/channels/zumba-kids and take some zumba lessons with your child! With all that dancing you will be sure to burn off some energy while having fun.

Enjoy The Weather!

The weather outside is so nice! It is supposed to rain for the next couple of days so let your child enjoy playing outside in the backyard while they can! At school the kids love to hear stories and see pictures of my dog Amelie. Show them this video if you get the chance!
