**Just a friendly reminder that Monday, June 1 is a Professional Development Day there will be no class that day. I will be posting weekly lessons instead of daily lessons starting June 2. Please choose one activity from the list that I will provide. I will be teaching small groups at school and I may not respond promptly to your email. I will try my best to respond as soon as I can.**
Today we are going on a Scavenger Hunt in our homes, backyards or patios. You are going to find items that start with letters Aa through Ee.
Find an item, draw it, then add the letter it starts with next to it (or use kid-spelling to print the entire word). We will continue this tomorrow. Don’t finish the entire alphabet today. Wait until tomorrow to send me your photos.
(Optional: you can create your own Alphabet book with your drawings!)
3 Dimensional Shapes (Math) ~ 15 Minutes
1. Read Poem
2. Watch Jack Hartman’s Video on 3 D shapes song.
3. Walk around your home and see if you can find 2 or more 3 Dimensional shapes!
Using sticky notes or a blank piece of paper with tape attached to the back. Write number 0 to 10 and stick the notes around your house without your child seeing. For example, one piece of paper with 0, one piece of paper with 1, etc.
Have your child find each number. Before they can take the note off the wall they have to name the correct number. Parents you may have to assist your child with this game. If they get stuck on the number give them a clue by providing the number correspondence (for example, if your child is stuck on the number 3, you can show them 3 crayons). Play as long as your child is interested.
Once your child has found all the numbers they can find different objects relating to each number. (For example, the number 1, your child can find 1 sock).
Have your child choose 3 numbers that they want to practice writing. Have your child write each number 5 times. (For example, 2 2 2 2 2, 10 10 10 10 10, 5 5 5 5 5).
