Greetings Everyone!

We miss seeing you each day but we know that you are continuing to grow and learn. Please practice good things because we know that “Practice Makes Permanent!"  

Suggestions for each day:

  • Read twice: 15-20 minutes in the morning and 15-20 minutes in the afternoon (Books and Raz-Kids)
  • Write a journal page of 2-3 sentences with a picture to go with your sentence.  Make sure to start with a capital letter, the rest of the letters are lowercase except names, space should be between your words and the sentence ends with a punctuation mark.  
  • Practice reading and writing the 40 kindergarten sight words and counting to 100 by ones and tens.  We know that this time off is plenty of time to master these skills.  Please check the files and document link on this page for kindergarten sight words.  
  • Reviewing patterns AB, AAB, ABB, ABC.  Make each kind, extend each kind and identify the core (what repeats in the pattern).
  • Review coins (penny, nickel, dime and quarter), how much they are worth and how many pennies would equal a nickel or dime.  
  • Review sets (0-20), comparing one more and one less without counting.
  • Use cards and dice to play games with numbers.  Examples:  Take out the face cards and using the number cards.  Each player turns over a card.  The person with the larger number would say, "I win because 4 is more than 2."  When rolling two dice, the student would say 4 and 3 is 7.  You can extend this activity by using more dice.  These games help with addition.  The addition symbol is not necessary in kindergarten.  The word 'and' explains that it is a combining activity.  
  • Make up story problems to practice subtraction.  For example, 5 ducks are swimming in a pond.  Two ducks leave the pond.  How many ducks are still swimming in the pond?  You need to model the correct response 5 ducks take away 2 ducks is 3 ducks swimming in the pond.  Again, symbols are not necessary in kindergarten level.  The words 'take away' explains the meaning of subtraction.  
  • All of the above math suggestions will increase students' number sense to be successful in math.  Number Sense is the understanding of numbers:  order, combining and taking apart.  It is important to master through 5 before moving on to 10.  
  • Brain Pop Jr. subjects to listen to: Dental Health, Maps & Globes, and Living & Non-living Things.  Note – Brain Pop Jr. has given free access.
