Monday, March 30, 2020- Rainbow/ Pattern Day!

TBD Spirit Week: e-Learning Style! Wear as many colors of the rainbow or patterns that you can!

Morning News: click the link March 30, 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 Monday 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 127th day of school!

- Pick someone to count to 127 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

- Today we will learn a new sound! 

- This sound is a digraph! Remember a digraph is two letters representing one sound

- We already learned the digraph /ch/. 

- The new digraph is:

- What sound does the digraph -sh make? - When you make the /sh/ sound - pretend you are a shark and use your arms to make a shark mouth (like you would to the song “baby shark”).

- Click to listen to the -Sh song

- After listening to the -sh song with Jack Hartamm, please join Ms. Corbett in making words using the -sh digraph. We will make words together on our blend board- LINK BELOW.  - After blending words using the -sh digraph, see if you can come up with some words that begin or end with -sh on your own!


- Below is our letter/sound video. In school we review our sounds EVERY DAY. - Please review every day if you can. Letter/Sound Video

- please click HERE for extra red word practice. If you have a printer, you may print out this PDF. If you do not, please "rainbow write" each of these red words using 3 different color crayons on a plain piece of paper.

Reading Workshop:

- Go on RAZ Kids and read for at least 10-15 minutes. Try to record a story for me so I can hear you read! Take the quiz after each story!


- Please read a story to your child each night before bed. Today is the LAST DAY to record reading on your blue log.

*Find sight words while you are reading

*Use strategies to figure out unknown words

*Look at print - the word begins with b (bunny not rabbit) 

*Use pictures to help

*Sound the word out in “chunks”


Writing Workshop:

- Today for writing workshop please write a personal narrative about your weekend! Tell me everything you did. Maybe you played board games, made a fort, ate dinner with your family, OR watched a movie. Whatever you did this weekend, please tell me in a personal narrative! Personal narratives use words like I, me, my, or we. Don’t forget to include WHO, WHAT, and WHERE in your story. - Please write at least 2 sentences. - Add detail and take your time! - Draw a nice picture to match your words. 



- Use 10 of your counters for "Ways to Make 10".  Take your red and yellow counters, put them in a cup, shake, and toss them onto the table. When they land, sort them on the table by color. Figure out how they make 10! Do you have 4 red counters and 6 yellow counters? Do you have 5 red counters and 5 yellow counters? Do this a few times to get different ways to make 10!  - Log into Happy Numbers for 15-20 minutes.
