Wednesday 3/18/20 At home learning:
Literacy – Continue to work on signing-in (with their name-recognizing upper and lowercase letters), journaling (draw and share- what did you work on? tell me about it…), and practice their inventive spelling. (Sound out words and write what you hear- example: rainbow would be ranbo or ranbow)
Continue to read aloud and ask prompting questions. (What do you notice? What do you wonder? before starting to read, What do you think will happen next? when you notice a problem, Retell story- what happened first? next? last?)
Creative Experiences – Create a book with your family. (Add a Title page, Author and Illustrator. Each person can come up with a part- 1: “I saw a bug.” 2: “It was tiny and colorful.” 3: “I think it is looking for a friend.” — ASK –What could happen next? 1:”It will find a spider to be friends with.” 2:”Yeah, a ninja spider that teaches the bug to do karate.” 3: “Then after karate they can get cupcakes and look for another friend.” –illustrate and try to sound out/copy some words.)
Create character by using recycled materials (paper towel and toilet paper cardboard tubes, paper, bottles) along with tape and markers.
Fill a shallow plate with high fat milk, add food coloring drips, put a dry cotton swab in- notice no change, then put soap on a cotton swab and watch how the colors move and swirl. To show how soap has a change on the “dirt” color.
Create a nature bracelet- tear a piece of tape and wrap around wrist- sticky side out, find natural treasures (or bits of paper/household materials) and stick to the tape.
Scavenger Hunt- create a list of things to “hunt” for around the house, it can be a letter hunt as well find things that start with the sound Bb ball, book, bug, and so on.
Make lists of upper case letters and learners draw a line to connect to a list of lowercase letters. Same with numbers and amounts.
Ask a question each morning and draw your answer:
What could you see if you were on the moon?
What would your superpower be?
What can you make from a square and a triangle?
