Morning News: click the link March 31, 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 Tuesday 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 128th day of school!

- Pick someone to count to 128 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

- Yesterday we learned a new sound /sh/.

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

- We now have learned 2 digraphs /ch/ and /sh/

- 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 -ch song

- Click to listen to the -sh song - Please join Ms. Corbett again today to make words using the -sh digraph. Repetition!

- We will make words together on our blend board- LINK BELOW.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/10u6GujPYRSV3rw_lLIZKANzj-UuGntG0/view - Today, you will make the -sh circle chart! I do not have a template for this circle chart, so please just use a blank piece of paper to draw 5 pictures of words that begin or end with /sh/. - Click HERE to go over Ms. Corbett's -sh circle chart.
