Weekly Message

Hello kinders!  Wow!  I saw him jump so high on his trampoline with his sister! We hope you have a wonderful week!  

Love,

Mrs. Bohl

Popcorn Words of the week:  him, jump

Math

Draw or use objects to show partners of a number (2 circles + 3 triangles = 5 shapes).

Find missing partners (If I had 5 crayons and I wanted 8 all together what would be my missing partner?  3.  For example:  5 + __ = 8).

Practice counting from a given number up to 100 (start counting at 60 – 100).

Reading

When you read look for snap words (sight words)  – use your snap word superpower!

Practice sight words – Sight Word flashcards can be found at the top of our blog.

Read everyday!

Writing

Practice writing sentences with our sight words of the week in them (him, jump)

Think of a true story/small moment story that you can write about.  Write a beginning, middle, and end.  (For example:  First I got my boots and coat on.  Then I walked to the trail.  We walked to the lake.  It was beautiful.)

Social Studies

What has been your favorite thing you have done during this stay at home time?  Draw a picture of yourself, label it, add color.  

Keep up the good work kinders and families…I am so proud of you!!  I hope that you will be able to “zoom” with me and your friends Monday night at 6:30pm.  I can’t wait to see you!

Learning at Home—March 23

Happy Monday Kinders!  I hope that you had a great weekend! Can you believe all of the snow!  Bundle up and play outside today!  Here is today’s video:

Here are the directions for the DICE GAME I found on a Pinterest site called The Many Little Joys.  

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • 2-4 dice
  • 10 small counters (pennies,Goldfish crackers, legos, Shopkins, etc.)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Each player starts with 2 dice and 5 counters.
  2. The objective of the game is to capture all of the other player’s counters.
  3. On the count of three, both players roll their dice. Each player adds up the sum of his/her two dice, and whoever has a higher number gets to “take” a counter from the other player.
  4. Continue playing until one player has ALL 10 counters. You can set a timer and declare the winner to be the person with the most counters when it goes off, if it takes too long to collect the counters.

VARIATIONS:

  • Getting doubles trumps any other number, and you get to take TWO counters from the other player (This rule helps the game go faster, I think).
  • You could practice subtraction instead of addition skills. Subtract the smaller number from the bigger number, and the player with the larger difference gets to take a counter from the other player.
