Remote Learning Friday 6/5

Happy Fun Friday K-Kids !!!!

Today you are going to be scientists, and do a fun experiment with water. You kids are always up for a challenge so I gave you one. Have fun with it.

 

  1. Science: For this activity you will need a pail of water. Today you will collect objects to drop in the pail. Can you find objects that you think will float on the water? Can you find items that will sink to the bottom? 

Bonus Challenge: If you have a can of diet soda, and a can of regular soda, then you drop both of the cans in the pail of water. Which can, do you think is going to sink? Which can, do you think will float?

2. Writing: If you could be a baker, and make any kind of food that you wanted, what would you bake? Cupcakes, muffins, breads, bear claws, cinnamon buns…..? Tell me with 2-3 sentences. Add a picture if you choose to. Can’t wait to see what you would bake.

3. Movement: It’s that time again to get that body moving outside. Jump, run, hop….. Get the heart muscle beating. 

4. PATHS: Click on the Following link to watch a reading of the PATHS story “The Secret Toy” a story about two friends who have an argument and then make up. Sometimes we all have disagreements, even friends, but we can learn together what to do when that happens! Great springboard for conversation with your child. Encourage them to talk about a time when the had an argument with a friend/ sibling. How did they feel? What happened? What did they do? What could you do differently next time? How did you make it better?    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6caclb3hlY&feature=youtu.be&utm_campaign=Support%20Materials&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=87899073&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9yJgHe-L3Q3dz4dg3_g7CSSjEG9mlHGXwlIWJziTbzs5d2bzZViwKRc30wQbgY2tPiSibPOwaHA2Xf2mu5rCCOKI_OjA&_hsmi=87899073

Remote Learning Thursday 6/4

Good Morning K-class. Today we are going to go on a virtual field trip to a train museum. Choo Choo!!! Enjoy learning all about the different cars that the engine pulls.

  1. Science: Virtual Field Trip: Today you’re going to learn all about trains…..

https://youtu.be/YmdzUiTOztM

2. Writing/ Creativity/ Drawing:  Today’s writing prompt question: If you were on a train where would you be going? Would you be the conductor? What would you see if you were a passenger on one? See if you can work on your story for at least 30 minutes. Draw a picture and write 2-3 sentences answering the questions above. Stretch out the words you want to spell to see how many sounds you can hear to write down. Remember to use lower case letters and add spaces between your words. Please send along your finished work for me to see! I love seeing what you are working on! 

3. Reading: Hey diddle diddle,

                The cat in the fiddle.

Do you have a rhyming book? Have someone read the book to you and see if you can say the rhyming word that is coming up next in the book. No rhyming books? Then how many words can you come up with that rhyme? (cat, bat, big, dig, ball, fall, hill, spill…..)

4. Science: Today we will finish our Bean Science journals. Take your final measurements before finding a spot outside to plant your bean plant. Don’t forget to put a tall stick or dowel in the ground near your plant to offer it support as it gets even taller. I hope it grows you a delicious bean to eat!

5. Math: Train Theme!  Using Fruit loops (or other snack or manipulative with different colors, like fruit snacks) to make a fruit loop train! Make a train with 4 red fruit loops and two green ones. How many “train cars” in all?  Practice writing the number sentence! Mix the colors up to make a “train.”  First count how many red? How many blue? How many yellow? How many all together? How do you write that as a number sentence? Great practice counting math facts and using math symbols!

Remote Learning Wednesday 6/3

Happy Wednesday. We are half way through the week. Today we are going on a virtual field trip to learn a new dance for dance party Wednesday. Looks like we are going to Hawaii and learning how to HULA. Have fun trying to learn the dance.  If you can, capture a video of your best hula dance to share with the group!

  1. Math: Play Top-It! For this math game you can use a deck of cards, with Jacks being 11, queens 12 and kings 13. Split the deck equally among players. Each player turns over their top card at the same time. The player with the highest card gets to take all cards layed down and put them at the bottom of their deck. First person to win all the cards wins the game! 

2. Movement/ Music/ Social Studies:  It’s a Wednesday Dance party, so let’s learn a new dance today. Our Virtual Field Trip is to Hawaii.  See if you can find Hawaii on a map of the United States of America.

Remote Learning Friday 5/22

Happy Fun Friday K-class. We  made it through another exciting week. Today I have a  math exploring game for you. I am curious to see how many different shapes you are going to be able to find around you house and yard. Have a Fun Friday and enjoy your  long weekend. Remember  Monday is Memorial Day. This is a day where I will be cooking out on the grill and eating at the picnic table in my yard, even if its just me and my family.

        

1. Word Work: Read, color, write! For this activity, tap out the word, color in the picture that matches what you read, and then write the word yourself using lower case letters! 

2. Science:  It’s now been a couple days since our last journal entry… do you see any changes happening?? Be sure to record the date, draw a picture with labels, and write down what you see! 

3. Math:  How many different shapes can you find in, or outside of your house? I found a rock in the shape of a heart, my shutter is shaped like a rectangle, my windows are square…..Draw a picture of the items and don’t forget to label the shape.

4. Social Studies/ Memorial Day: Please log into Epic for a variety of age appropriate books that teach kids all about this important holiday observed in America, also sometimes referred to as Decoration Day or Poppy Day.  I recommend the following titles on Epic: “Memorial Day” by RJ Bailey, “Lets Celebrate Memorial Day” (this title will read to your child), or “Celebrating holidays: Memorial Day” by Rachel Grack. Typically in the K classroom we discuss and learn about the following terms as well: memorial, veteran, military, poppy, remembrance, decorate, war, peace, parade, honor, pride, support, respect, volunteer, and donate. Other fantastic titles that we read in Kindergarten that you may be interested in picking up at the library or bookstore are: “The Poppy Lady” by Barbara Walsch  or Rolling Thunder by Kate Messner or Proud as a Peacock Brave as a Lion by Jane Barclay

Check out this reading of Proud as a Peacock Brave as a Lion here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS1xRvfccBg

Check out this reading of Rolling Thunder here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEsdtYKiPok

For more information about participating in “Rolling to Remember” or donating to the cause, please see the following page: https://www.rollingtoremember.com/

Find out more about Poppy Day and how your family may choose to contribute here:  https://www.legion.org/poppyday/history

5. Social Studies/ Memorial Day Poppy Craft for Kids: There are many ways that you can make your own poppy flowers with your children at home. You can cut out red flower shapes from construction paper and use black pipe cleaners as stems. Paper baking cups also make good flower crafting, you can even layer them for an increased 3D effect. Pass out these flowers in remembrance of loved ones and veterans to those in the community. Cut apart the sections of an egg carton and paint them red. Add a button in the middle. Paint a background on oaktag or a piece of cardboard and paint stems. Glue on the egg carton flowers at the tops of the painted stems and display your masterpiece! Crafts that encourage your child to use a tracer, cut on a line, fold, and glue all encourage fine motor skills, hand control, hand eye coordination (all which translate to improved handwriting!). Crafts that children can make to distribute with a purpose tied to their learning also provides them with an opportunity to participate in their community and the holidays our country celebrates.

6. SPECIALS:  Log onto one of the specialist teacher’s blog spaces (music, art, PE, or Library) and choose one to complete today. Every week new assignments are being posted at the K grade level!
