Welcome to Mrs. M's "Home Study" - March 2020
I will be adding ideas and thoughts here to support you while we are apart from the Tularcitos School campus.
Here are some things I am borrowing from Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Neuhaus:
Letter Sound Practice with Mrs. Campbell
Sight Word Practice with Mrs. Campbell, part 1
Sight Word Practice with Mrs. Campbell, part 2
Sight Word Practice with Mrs. Campbell, part 3
- What would you do if you found a leprechaun?
- How would you use a pot of gold?
- What is your favorite animal and why?
- What is your favorite activity at school and why?
- How can you help your mom or dad more at home?
- Do you like puzzles or coloring better, why?
- If you could give a gift to anyone, who would you give it to and what would it be?
- Would you rather play in the snow or at the beach. Why?
- Name someone who is kind to you. What has that person done for you?
- Name 3 things that you have learned in kindergarten. Which was the easiest to learn? Which was the hardest?
- What is your favorite vegetable?
- What vegetable do you dislike and why?
- Write the directions for how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
- Make a list of all the things you can see outside your bedroom window.
- Would you rather be an artist or a teacher, why?
Here is a link to a file that you can download, fill in and print out if you are looking for more work or other work that may be more challenging.
You can choose six sight words that your child kind of knows or doesn't know. You can choose any or take the ones that many in our class are still working on. I recommend "have, here, want, come, was, look." Once you download the file there is a spot on the top of page 4 that you can fill in six boxes. Use the words that I recommend or others that you know your child is still working to learn. It will automatically fill in the needed spaces on the five games. To play the games all you need is dice, a paperclip, ten cubes (or any type of counter like cheerios) and pencil/crayons.
If you get more comfortable with it, you can experiment by filling in the spots with other things like simple addition problems or digraphs (wh, sh, ch, ph, qu, -ck) or just letters to practice letter sounds if you like.
Please let me know if you try this. Please let me know if you need support making it work.
