There are many wonderful activities students can be doing at home to support learning.  Below are some suggestions by curriculum area.  

Reading

       The best thing your child can be doing at home is continuing to read as much as possible.  Rereading familiar books and exploring new books are both very worthwhile.  After finishing the story, take a minute and have your child retell the story including all important details.  One skill we have been working on is finding ways for the students to relate the story to themselves.  At the bottom of our class webpage is a link for Fundations where there are suggestions of activities to review skills to support phonemic awareness. Don’t forget to continue reviewing your child’s word ring by reading AND writing them in isolation.

Writing

     Listed below are goals we have been working on during our writing block. A great way to continue writing at home is for your child to keep a diary or other notebook. We often give the students a topic but encouraging them to come up with their own idea is even better!

Goals include:

· Writing left to right and top to bottom.
· Using letters to phonetically spell unknown words including beginning, middle, and ending sounds. Students have been taught to tap words out using their fingers.
· Using correct spelling for common sight words (word ring and spelling test words).
· Using spaces in between words.
· Working towards our goal of more than one sentence about the same topic.

· Writes first and last name with correct capitalization.

Math

        Below is a list of skills that were part of our calendar routine.  Reviewing these at home would be very beneficial for your child.

·      Dreambox Math is a wonderful website to support the students in math.

·        Counting by 1’s and 10’s to 100 as well as backwards from 20-1.

·        Recognizing the penny, nickel, dime, and quarter as well as their value.

·        Naming the 7 days of the week and the 12 months of the year.

·        Basic addition and subtraction story problems.

Favorite Websites in our class!  😊

https://www.abcya.com/

You can also go online and search Scholastic Learn From Home. It's totally free and lists daily activities per grade level. It's a great way to incorporate reading and science. Brainpopjr is another great website that incorporates all subject areas.






Important Information
I wanted to pass along information about some activities to complete at home during our break.  Two great websites are Dreambox Math and RAZ Kids.  The easiest way to access both sites is through the Glenkirk homepage under “Students” and then “Student Web Links.” Please email me at schaneam@pwcs.edu if you have any questions or need your child’s password. 


The students who were in school on Friday were given several additional books to read at home.  Feel free to read from your own personal library if your child was not there.  Your child should also have his/her word ring to practice.  I challenge the students by mixing up the words on the ring for added practice!  They can also keep a little diary or journal about their day. I will be adding additional information along with activities to focus on soon.  I hope everyone stays happy and healthy! 😊
