Thursday, March 26, 2020- Good morning and happy Thursday!

*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: March 26, 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 Thursday 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 125th day of school!

- Pick someone to count to 125 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!

Reading Workshop:

- Please read a story to your child each night before bed. Continue to fill in your blue log “Read to Make a Difference” in your folder for as many minutes you read.

*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:

- Take out a "story" paper from your folder (it has a big box and some lines at the bottom). Today you will write a personal narrative (story) about a "real" story - not a made up one.

- Think about your favorite thing you have done at home this week and tell me about it! Were you inside? Were you outside? Did you play with a brother or sister? Did you build something or eat your favorite food? Tell me all about it!

- 2 or 3 sentences and draw a picture to match.
