Wednesday, March 25, 2020- Happy International Waffle 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. I have emailed an “editable homeschooling schedule” that may help you organize your day.

Morning News: March 25, 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!

Sing the Wednesday 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 after sang)

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

What day was yesterday? What day is tomorrow? What kind of weather is it outside today? 



GYM- please click HERE to find Ms. Janowski’s webpage for gym activities!


Phonics/ Phonemic Awareness

- Yesterday we learned a new sound! 

- What sound does the letter K make? - When you make the /k/ sound - pretend you are flying a kite.

- We use hand motions for all letters learned to date- ie. /t/ we touch our toes, /i/ we itch our arm, /b/ we pretend to swing a baseball bat - your children know these! 

*Below is a video for practicing all of our letters and sounds to date- please watch!  (excuse my appearance- it’s hard to look nice when you have no place to go!) 

Letter/Sound Flash Card Practice

* Also please let me know if this link does not work.

- TODAY, I want you to post your letter K drawings to our new Padlet! I posted mine!

Visit:  Padlet- letter K pictures

 - Hit the + sign in the bottom right-hand corner of the page and post your Letter K pictures (from yesterday) for everyone to see! I posted my letter K chart for you to see.

Padlet- show me your smile!

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!


- 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”


- EXTRA: This link will direct you to stories on by Amazon. They are providing free audible stories while schools are closed. If you are in need of more read-aloud books, check it out! Audible

Writing Workshop:

- Today, you may take a break from writing workshop! - Instead, I want you to label items in your house! We did this in the classroom a long time ago. We used “post-it notes” and labeled items in our classroom- window, calendar, carpet, chair, table, door, bathroom, etc. and stuck the post-it to those objects. If you have access to post-it notes, please use them. If not, you may use paper and tape, but please don’t stick tape to anything that will get you in trouble! (supervision suggested). 

- Please allow your child to spell the words of each object on their own. - If they have trouble trying to spell the words, that is OK! Remind them to stretch out the sounds. - If they want to only write the first letter of the word, that is OK too.

- For example: Computer- try to spell computer OR just write the letter “c” when labeling.
