Please visit the website goorulearning.org to access our “ILCS Kindergarten" homework site.  Here you will have access to materials such as digital flash cards, books, videos, educational games as well as downloadable games, documents and much more.  You can also download the Gooru app for iPads and access all the videos and documents; the iPad does not support sites requiring Flash Player. 

Class code: QCAWKCF 
Class Name:  ILCS Kindergarten


Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (LOOK, HERE, THIS), letter teams (CH and OO - as in look), and word family (AM - ram, Sam, Pam, yam, etc). Study these flashcards (and those from previous weeks) every day. Visit our Sight Words tab for more flashcard ideas.

Phonemic Awareness:  Phonemic awareness is understanding sounds in words, rhyming, syllables, etc.  Strong phonemic awareness is important to early reading skills.  A great way to practice phonemic awareness is to play word/sound games with your child. Please see the Phonemic Awareness tab for ideas and tips on working with your child on these skills.  You can also find resources for many phonemic awareness activities on gooru.

Reading: Read, read, read! Read the paper books that have come home, read books from your book box, read on RAZ-Kids, work on the Smarty Ants reading program, read on We Give Books, and read to your child! See the links on the Fun Learning Links Tab.  You can download the poems and fluency passage of the week on gooru for your student to keep in their book box at home for additional familiar reading material.

Math: Practice counting 1-30 or higher, count on starting at a number other than one, identify numbers out of order, study number flashcards, number writing practice, sort items by color and size, practice identifying 2D and 3D shapes, draw shapes, start sorting and counting coins at home. VISIT OUR COMMON CORE STANDARDS TAB TO SEE WHAT OTHER MATH STANDARDS YOU CAN WORK ON WITH YOUR CHILD!   You will find several 2D and 3D shape resources on gooru.  You can find all of these math skills and many more on IXL Math.  See the link on the Fun Learning Links Tab at the top of this page.  

Writing: Write every day in your at-home journal. Practice writing your name with an uppercase only at the beginning. Practice writing ABC's uppercase and lowercase (Aa, Bb, Cc). Also practice writing your sight words of the week and sight word dictation sentences for our spelling test on Friday.

Sharing:  This week, we are discussing our leadership theme - grit. Please write one sentence about how you can demonstrate grit at home or at school. Draw a picture to go with your sentence. Make sure you practice reading your sentence at home so you are prepared to read in front of the class. Sharing is due Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Please do not turn in on Fridays as it is often difficult to find time for everyone to share on Fridays.  Thank you. If you visit the following link (Sharing Paper), you'll find a great printable sharing page with a spot for writing and for a picture! Feel free to print off a bunch of these pages to use for sharing each week :) The Sharing Paper link can also be found on the Fun Learning Links tab.
