I hope home school is going well. I know how challenging it is and I want to be as supportive as I possibly can!
Next week is Spring Break so we won't be giving out packets or posting any assignments on Google Classroom . Please take this time to enjoy your family and take a break from homeschooling!
On the Monday after spring break you may pick up the second packet at school between 8-10. I highly encourage you to get one as we are trying to stick to our kindergarten themes. Try to give one page of math , and a writing page each day. Friday, April 10 is a teacher work day so we won't be posting lessons for that day. Also, we will send the next agenda that you can use for digital resources on our google classroom like we did for week 1 distance learning. It should be much better this second week of learning. Thanks everyone for being patient.
I came up with a daily schedule to help keep you on track for the upcoming weeks. Please know that this is only a suggestion and if you have it all under control then don't worry about it! I was thinking about our Kinder day so it's kind of based on that. Of course, feel free to change the time frame if your child is sleeping in.
Here is the schedule:
8-9-Read Aloud Story- Read a story or check out Epic books and have your child tell you about the setting, problem and solution. (20 min or so)
Log on to Lexia and do a few lessons(20-30 min)
Word wall words- make some flashcards or have your child write some sentences with their word wall words(20 min)
9-9:30-Recess-get outside and move
9:30-9:45-Calendar-talk about the date, day, year, etc.how is the weather today? count to 100 by ones, fives and tens.
9:45-10:15-Math-do a page from the packet, do some addition or subtraction flash cards, practice writing your numbers to 50 and beyond! Or go to our digital agenda and find more ideas.
10:15-10:45-Check out a Mystery Science Mini Lesson or a Scholastic lesson
10:45-11:15-Do a writing assignment or phonics paper from the packet or write in a journal
11:15-11:30-Do a chore around the house to help out and give mom and dad a hug!
If you are having a hard time with Google Classroom please know that this is new for me too! The kinder team is currently working on our Google Classroom page and making it more user friendly. After spring break, things will be more organized by subject, and assignments.
You can use Epic Books on Google Classroom. To access your child's reading level, you can click on the F& P link to practice. Unfortunately we are not allowed on to campus so I cannot access our classroom books for you to borrow. Another suggestion is to order leveled books on Amazon. Bob books are also great for beginning readers.
I am here to help please reach out if you are in need! Also, check out the RIo website for students. There are lots of links/educational sites for your child.
Hope this helps a little! Have a nice and relaxing Spring Break.
