- We will have a couple Zoom get togethers over the summer for a fun and safe way for your child to see friends in our class. I will email details closer to time.
- Let’s be pen pals! Have your child write/draw a note or story. Text or email a photo of it and I will write back!
- Check the blog for fun ideas throughout the summer.
- Feel free to let me know if your child would like a Zoom, FaceTime, or phone call. I am happy to chat with them!
- Tutoring: I will email the options in the next couple of weeks. I have a plan but want to get all the information from our district meetings next week before I share in case I need to make changes.
We celebrated each child on Zoom with a class award! Each kid brings so many amazing qualities to our school family and it was fun to take a few minutes to acknowledge each child. Here are the awards so you can print/save your child’s as well as scroll through to see all the awesome learners we have in our class.
Here is another Mystery Doug Live! It is about space and is at 12pm on May 21st. Happy Learning!
Here are a few more sound games. The more the kids practice breaking sounds apart and blending them together verbally, the better they will be at using those skills to read and spell.
In this video we break numbers into groups of 10 to see how many 10s are in a number and if they have any ones left over. You can try this with any small objects you have at home. Start with teens and then try bigger and bigger numbers if your child is ready!
Here is a video to practice how to spell vowel consonant e words following that spelling pattern. For more practice after my video, here is the vowel consonant e song!
One way kids can work on understanding what they read is by making connections! Here is a video to remind kids what that means and model making connections when reading.
Here is a fun way to practice comparing numbers. Make it a little easier and use only 1-5 cards, or make it a little harder and make the face cards numbers above 10 (or make your own # cards).
Here is a Memory Book you can print and make with your child if you would like. If you are not able to print at home. You can still look at this one and use it for ideas to make your own version on whatever paper you have.
Here are a few tips:
- Do 1 or 2 pages at a time over several days. Don’t do the book all in one sitting.
- The kids will have a tendency to rush, you will need to guide them on how to complete each page.
- Talk about one page a time, brainstorm ideas, and have your child work on just that page.
- Have your child draw and write with pencil first, let them color after you look at it.
- Have your child do their best spelling, do not spell every word for them. You may want to write a few special words for them to copy correctly.
- If the memory book makes your child sad, encourage them to share those feelings. They may want to take a break from working on the book but writing and drawing is a great way for your child to process what they are feeling.
Here is a little video introducing the memory book to your child.
