Homework: October 17-21

Please take a moment to read each section of homework. I understand this can be very overwhelming. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.


Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (ARE, BIG, LITTLE, FOR, WAS), letter teams (AR and IGH), and word family (IG - big, pig, twig, etc.)Study flashcards every day.


Phonemic Awareness: Your child's Foundational Skills goal sheet came home a couple of weeks ago with his or her highlighted goals. Please refer to this sheet and work with your child on these skills that he or she still needs to master (blending, segmenting, rhyming, syllables, add/change/delete a sound, etc.) Please see our Phonemic Awareness tab for ideas and tips. 


Reading: Play Smarty Ants for 10-15 minutes each night. Read the paper books that have been coming home to live in your Home Book Box. Read the books in your book bag. Go on RAZ-Kids Online Reading. Read to your child every day and have your child read to you every day. Find sight words and letter teams in books, in the car as you are driving - we want to give you plenty of opportunities to just READ, READ, READ!

Writing: Write every day in your at-home journal. Practice proper penmanship using the lines to help you. Practice writing your sight words of the week. Practice using an uppercase only at the beginning. Some students should now be working on writing one to three sentences on the same topic. Some students are still practicing writing their names, letters, and sight words. 


Math: Play Dreambox for 10-15 minutes each night. Your child's math goal sheets came home last week. Please review these Counting and Cardinality and Geometry goal sheets and work on any highlighted goals - these are skills that your child is working on in class. Most students have a counting goal and a shape goal. Our shape goals include naming, drawing, building, and describing the attributes of each 2D and 3D shape. Keep going over those Daily Math worksheets that go home each day to see if your child needs help with a particular skill. Remember to check the back to see our Math Talk of the day.  Count everything! Ask your child all the different ways that numbers can be represented. Start asking your child simple word problems like, "If there are four cats playing in the yard and two more cats come, how many cats are there altogether?" and have your child explain HOW he got the answer.

QR Codes: Our class uses a LOT of QR codes in our learning.  Mrs. Stanley has created many QR code activities for all of our kindergarten students to scan and work on at home. Each week, these will be uploaded on ParentSquare. Please print these pages for your child to work on at home each week. One great idea is to put these pages in sheet protectors and add these pages into a binder for your child to refer to all year long. 


Turn-In Homework: This week, we are learning about spiders through various non-fiction books. We will be continuing our discussion on the difference between fact and opinion. Write one sentence with a fact that you have learned about spiders. Draw a picture to go with your sentence. 

Note: If you visit the following link (Sharing Paper), you'll find a great printable writing page with a spot for writing and for a picture! Feel free to print off a bunch of these pages to use for turn in writing homework each week :)
