Let’s try to keep our students on track with some home reading and math practice. We are giving independent, instructional, and scaffolded level work to practice at home. Please try to work with your student for approximately 90 minutes/day. You will find work in your packets- here are suggestions for practice.
5 minutes of sight words. Below are links of sight word chants that the wonderful Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Campbell put together.
5 minutes of the letter and digraph chants. Below is a link of letter chants that the amazing Mrs. Campbell put together.
20 minutes of reading (small books included in packet). After reading the book, ask your child what the book was about and have a discussion.
10 minutes of Handwriting Without Tears (please remind your student to sit like a scholar and use their supporting hand). Your child may also like to color a picture for fine motor skill practice.
30 minutes of math work daily (we have included worksheets, their fast fact levels, and an empty Connecting Math Concepts workbooks that is at their level- please have them complete sections that do not need the directions from the teacher guide)
Your student can also access links on their class links- I suggest students do ST math and Typing Agent daily (10 minutes of each)

TIPS FOR HOME SCHOOLING~
Create a daily schedule to follow.
Have morning and nighttime routines.
Do school work at the same time every day.
*I also suggest using this time to give your child more chores/life skills around the house. Have them help you with laundry, assist you in cooking a meal, teach them to vacuum or load the dishwasher, or have them help in the garden. Read to your child daily! Get out some board games or play cards (this is great for language and social skills). Most importantly, enjoy this extra time with your child.
