    Phase II Remote Lerning Plans- Week of March 30th

    Sight Words: her, be, say

    Word Wallet Words: nine, ten, why & can't

    **Please be sure to practice sight words & word wallets words daily**




     Remote Learning Plans


    Parents...please be sure that you are logged into your child's gmail account to access the Remote Learning Plans. Everything is set to be viewed with "anyone with the link




    Week 2 March 23-27- all resources for this week will be up on the google classroom**

    Parents: I changed it up this week....I put all of the activities here on one page and you can work at your own pace while some of you are dealing with working at home and also helping your other children. I hope this format works better for you! PLEASE do not think you have to do it all....these are just some extra activities incase you or your child would like some extra practice. I will still give you all a Good Morning Text on Remind each morning to start the day! :) 
    Remember to log onto the district remote learning lesson plans on the school homepage and follow the plans for Week 2. The lessons on there are what are required for the week. Remember to save it all in your child's folder for me for when we return! 
    For Literacy, you will continue to make sure to complete about 15-20 minutes of reading time independently or with a partner/parent. This can be your books from your reading bag, or any books that you have at home, OR you can log onto any of the suggested reading websites like Epic and read books from there, or the Scholastic Learn From Home program. 

    This week, the new sight words are: us, out & put
    3/25  Word Wallet Wednesday Words: seven, eight, when, then  
    -Each day this week, practice reading the words and be sure to spell them aloud as you practice them. Below, I attached the Font Sight Word Sort for this week. This is optional to do and can be done any day this week.
    -Also during the week, try a different activity with the words such as, writing them 3x each neatly, writing them in rainbow letters, writing a sentence with each new word , go on a Snap Word hunt for them in your reading books & writing each word, letter by letter on a post-it, or cut up index card and then mixing the letters up and putting the words back together. For Fundations: Have your child read through their Blue Fundations Notebook that I sent home a few weeks ago and review each letter, keyword and letter sound, or you can use the Fundations video from my classpage.
    -This week, focus on reading and writing simple CVC words. See the attachment below. You can do as many of the pages as you want during the week-again, these are OPTIONAL! 
    For Writers Workshop: You will be begin writing an "All About" book. See the directions on the Remote Learning page. One of the easiest "All About" books to write about is to write about your favorite animal. You may have to do a little research about that animal...but that can be a fun family activity. I have attached an Anchor chart to help with this project. This is usually a fun writing activity each year. Just be sure that your child is using facts, not opinions in their writing. *if you cannot print the writing paper from the district, just use any paper you have at home. **we have taught the children....writing a book does not happen all in one day. This writing activity should be done over the 5 days, by doing a little bit each day! 
    For Math: Just follow the plans on the Remote Learning Page for each day. Optional activities: I attached a few Addition and teen practice counting pages below if you would like extra practice. OR, you could also make a number book and write a teen number and draw that many pictures to go with it. Each day, pick 1-2 numbers to do and by the end of the week, you will have a Teen Number Book! Or, some of you have been working on different Math websites...that works too! Be sure to let us know what fun Math websites you do like to go on...share those ideas here with your friends! 
    Parents, I want to leave this message for you here....
    Right now, don't worry about your child regressing in school. Every single kid in the USA is in this boat and they all will be OK! When we get back to the classroom, we will meet them where they are and go from there. At the end of all of this, your child's mental health will be more important than their academic skills. And how they felt at this time will stay with them long after the memory of these weeks is long gone. So, keep that in mind every single day!

    How Can You Help At Home:

    During review at home, see if your child can think of 3-5 words that begin with that letter.  

    Have him/her look for things around your house that begin with the letters you are practicing.

    Identify the beginning letter of family members or family friends names.

    Have your child help with shopping and helping to write the shopping list.

    Use the Parent Information page that we send home each week.  Included with the Parent Information page, will be the letter pages.  Please use these pages to review with your child at home. They can trace the letter with their finger, starting at the top and going down. As they finish tracing the letter, they can practice saying the letter name, the keyword picture and then the sound.  For example, Tt, top, /t/. They can then color the picture.
