Here are the general directions for our homework bags.
In each bag you will find:
- Math Mats: The directions are on the bottom of each page. Your child may have completed these already but they should review and practice.
- Social Studies Magazines: Please read each magazine with your child and complete the back page.
- Purple Kindergarten Journals: There is a list of prompts below. Please remind your child to use all the conventions of writing (Capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, ending mark, spaces between words, neat letters, spelling words they can correctly and sounding out words they can’t spell). Be sure to draw a picture!
- Yellow Language Arts Workbooks: Please have your child complete any of the pages up to page 212. There are reading books you can tear out and have your child color and read. The directions for each page are at the bottom of the pages. If specific stories are referenced, you can skip these pages. Please make sure your child uses their best penmanship!
- We are including a bag of crayons and pencils. You may keep these at home.
- Below you will find ideas for journal writing, STEAM activities and links to other pages you can access. They include Jack Hartman videos (fun, active and educational), a March developmental calendar, playdough recipe, art hub (directed drawing lessons), Storyline Online, links to Mrs. Campbell’s alphabet and sight word songs, a link to Scholastic’s Watch and Learn library, sight word slide show
We hope you find this helpful. We will miss you all but know this is best for everyone.

Hello Parents and Children
I have been thinking about all of you so much and hope you are doing well. I miss you and your smiles so much!
I know many of you are going through the materials that were given to you. I would like to give you a few more suggestions to help you with school work.
- Writing: we had just begun a unit on persuasive writing. In kindergarten it is telling what is a favorite something and giving reasons why (at least 3). For instance, “My favorite color is blue because it is the color of the sky, the ocean is blue and my eyes are blue.”
- Math: practice writing math equations both horizontally and vertically.
- Math: practice doubles (1+1, 2+2, 3+3…), doubles plus 1 (1+2, 2+3, 3+4), doubles minus 1 (2-1, 3-1, 4-1), any number plus 0 (1+0, 2+0, 3+0), any number minus 0 (1-0, 2-0, 3-0)
- Card game: use the number cards and instead of “war” add the numbers together.
- Make a list of words that rhyme (aka word families) For example: cat, hat, sat, rat. Even make believe words are good: wip, mip, tof, mof…
I hope to see you soon! Feel free to send pictures and I can post them!
