All About the Teacher

** Please check below for resources to work on at home. I love and miss you all and can't wait to see you soon! Stay safe and healthy!** 

Here is a great TIme Capsule Activity to do with your kiddos at home. It helps them document their feelings during this historic time.

Easter will certainly be a lot different this year. You can help participate in a Neighborhood Egg Hunt by having your children decorate these Easter Eggs and hang them in your window. Go explore the neighborhoods and look for other eggs in the windows of your neighbors! Not quite the hunt we were hoping for but you can still make it fun!! 

*Distance Learning Review Packet #1* 

 *At Home Scavenger Hunts*

*Sight word lists: For the 1st Grade Sight word list for our district click here. For the Fry Sight word list-click here and for the Dolch Sight word list-click here. You can use any or all of these lists to help your child with becoming familiar with commonly used words in books and stories. You can create flash cards for them on your computer or even write them on index cards. Memorizing these words will be beneficial to their reading. Remember, sight words should be read with automaticity and not sounded out.* 

Here are two monthly writing calendars. They include great writing prompts for students to complete each day. For April calendar click here and for the May calendar click here.

Weekly Reading Story:  A Youtube video of the story is given  and you may pause and mute the video to have your child practice reading it to you as well. After reading the story, ask questions about the story to check for understanding. Examples: What is the genre? Who are the characters? What is the setting and plot (story events)? If it is an informational story, ask them facts that they remember or things they found interesting. You can also ask them to find text and graphic features such as the title, headings, labels, photographs and have them point them out to you in the story

 Phonics/Spelling Skill: Each week we have a phonics and a spelling skill for students to practice. The focus skill for March 23rd-27th is the /oo/ sound heard in the word spoon. This could be spelled with -oo, -ew or -ou. Some example words are: zoo, spoon, new, soup, loop, blew, flew, grew, group, you

Math: For math, we are reviewing place value and working on graphs. Children should know the ones, tens and hundreds place in a given number. You can practice this by showing them a number and asking them to point to the digit in each place (Example: 47 the 4 is in the tens place and the 7 is in the ones place). You can also have them draw you a number using base 10 block representations. For example: The number 28 can be drawn using sticks (tens) and squares (ones) so they would draw 2 sticks and 8 squares. Another great practice is having them give you ten less and ten more than a given number. For graphing, we are working on making a tally chart or bar graph and asking and answering questions about the graph. You can look for bar graphs online and show them and ask questions about the graph. An example is below.

Spelling

*The Spelling Lists are located on the right under Spelling. Click to download each list. -------------------> 
 
Students will not be given a list of words to study at home each week. Instead, we will focus on the phonics skill we are learning each week and the test on Friday will have words based on that skill. Students will need to know all of their letter sounds and their weekly phonics skill in order to be successful on the test. This will help students build their spelling knowledge and retain the skills rather than just memorizing words. Example: Short A sound phonics skill: Practice all short A words at home: at, am, cat, ran, dad, map etc.

Homework

*If there are any daily assignments not completed during the school day, they will be taken home to be completed.

*Math homework will be in Daily Folders every Monday-Thursday (*There will not be a math homework given on the weekends)

*Please read a minimum of 20 minutes each day and practice math facts for at least 10 minutes.

*Throughout the year there will be various projects or assignments to complete at home.
