Friday, March 27, 2020- HAPPY FUN FRIDAY!! Pajama Day!!

*Take time throughout the day for snack, lunch, recess, playtime, and brain breaks (go noodle & fresh air)!

*Please note that this schedule can be spread throughout the day and is not meant to be done in one sitting or in any particular order. 

Morning News: click the link March 27, 2020 KC News

*We read the morning news together every morning. One student points to the words and reads the news while the rest of the class follows. Please have your child read the news and find sight words in the news. If you have a printer, you can print the news and have them highlight sight words on paper. If you don't have a printer, your child can just point to the sight words that they find in the news!

Morning Routine: (oral)

What day is today? What day was yesterday? What day is tomorrow?

How many days are left in March? What month comes next?

What kind of weather is it outside today? 

Sing the Friday song and the March Song to your families!

"This is March. The wearing of the green. Leprechauns and Shamrocks. On St. Patrick’s Day are seen." (each line is echoed)


Today is the 126th day of school!

- Pick someone to count to 126 with. You do not need to start with 1. Start with a bigger number like 50 so that it doesn't take so long. Count!

Phonics/ Phonemic Awareness- Write these 4 Red words 5x each on a piece of paper: was, has, his, she - Take your time! Say the letters as you write the words. - When you finish, trace each word over with your finger, saying the letters as you trace.
