• Day 10 Distance Learning APRIL 1, 2020

    Reading

    Overview: Read a poem and identify consonant blend: sp, sk, sm

    Estimated Time: Approximately 30 minutes

    Explanation: Students will read the poem from the Words Their Way Big Book of Rhymes.  Look for the banner at the top of each poem.  Students will be reading the poem that goes with Sort 16: My Special Skill.

    As students read, they should look for words that have the blends: sp, sk, and sm. Think about the sound of each blend, and try to come up with some other words that have these blends in them!

    After reading, follow the steps at the bottom of the poem.  Put a red circle around words with sp, sk, and sm in them. Put a green triangle around end punctuation.  Put a blue square around the uppercase letters. 

    After completing those activities read the poem again.  Make a picture in your mind (visualize) using the details from the poem.  Draw a detailed picture to go with the poem at the bottom of the page.

    Things to Know: If this poem does not seem to be an appropriate level to read independently, students may read the text with an adult, or have an adult read the story to them. 

    Tasks: 

    • Preview the poem by taking a picture walk, scan for word wall words we have practiced, identify any "tricky" words to practice ahead of time.
    • Discuss: Talk to someone about your mental picture.  Did they picture the same things? 
    • Optional:  make a list of other words that begin with sp, sk, sm (or have these blends in them!)

    Handwriting

    Overview:  Students will practice their first-grade best handwriting by writing uppercase and lowercase letters.  Please use the handwriting book that was sent home in the manila envelope prior to school closure.

    Estimated Time:  Approximately 25 minutes

    Explanation:  Students will trace the uppercase N on the top line.  Students will write their own rows of N on the line underneath.  Students should think about using the handwriting lines for correct letter formation.  Please encourage finger spacing in between each letter.  Students will start at the top line and touch the bottom line for each letter.  Please use the whole line to write the letter.

    Students should continue to follow the pattern of tracing and writing for each row.  Students will finish the page by writing the names and sentence at the bottom of the page.  Discuss that these words are proper nouns and need a capital at the beginning.

    Please have students complete pages 9-12 (R, r, S, s) for this assignment following the same directions listed above.

    Tasks:

    • Use first grade best handwriting to complete pages 9-12. 
    • Optional:  use the words on the page for each letter to write sentences with proper capitalization and punctuation.

    **BRAIN BREAK!!**

    Just like at school, you need a little break from learning to get your wiggles out! Take 15 minutes to move around a little bit. Ask mom or dad if you can play outside, stretch a little bit, or you can head to https://family.gonoodle.com/ and do some of the brain breaks we do in school!

     

    Science

    Overview: Reading non-fiction science content and applying skills to write in the steps of a frog’s life

    Estimated Time: Approximately 20 minutes

    Explanation: Students can re-read the Scholastic News “Don’t Mess With My Dad”. Students will complete page 8 of Science packet titled “The Life of a Frog”. Students will put a number in each circle next to the pictures of a frog’s life cycle, to put the steps in the correct order. On the lines next to the pictures, students will use the article to write a sentence about what happens in this step of the lifecycle.

    Things to Know: If this article does not seem to be an appropriate level to read independently, students may read the text with an adult, or have an adult read the story to them. 

    Tasks:

    • Re-read Scholastic News “Don’t Mess With My Dad”.
    • Focus on the bottom part of the article, “From Egg to Frog”, which shows the lifecycle of a frog.
    • On page 8 in science packets, use the article to number the lifecycle steps in the correct order.
    • In the lines next to the pictures, write a short sentence about what happens at this stage in the lifecycle.
    • Try to write the sentence in your own words, but if you are stuck, try smart-copying the article. The “caption” underneath each picture describes it for you!
