Read Aloud: Llama Llama Time To Share by Anna Dewdney llama llama time to share

Letter A Book from Reading the Alphabet

For this activity we are going to do a picture walk to introduce this book. Then we will circle the sight word, the, every time we see the book. As we circle our new sight word, we will say the word.

Sight Word Poke Page from Reading the Alphabet

This week’s sight word is the word ‘at’.

For this activity we are going to take a toothpick and poke holes all around the sight word, see. Once we are done we will place the paper up to a window to let the light come through the paper.

I Spy with A Picture Cards from Reading the Alphabet

This we are going to make into a game. First we will spread all of the cards on the floor. Then we will play “I Spy” with the syllable sounds clapping as you say the words.

Wednesday

Read Aloud:  Should I Share My Ice Cream? By Mo Willems 51LnLOyjuFL._SX348_BO1,204,203,200_

Letter A Book from Reading the Alphabet

This is the second day that we use this book. So today we are going to look through the pictures again. As we look through the pictures we will identify the initial sounds of the words. When we finish our initial sounds, I will read to them the first pages and then allow them to finish the story for me.

Pocket Chart Book from Reading the Alphabet

For this activity we will need a pocket chart. I am going to place the sentences in the pocket chart and read the text aloud. I am going to use a pointer to point to the words as I read them. After each sentence, my children can add the picture that goes with it. When we complete all of the sentence strips, they will each take turns reading the sentences.

Rhyming Mat from Reading the Alphabet

For this activity we will take the rhyming mat picture and the small pictures. We will look at each picture and name them. The ones that rhyme with the top picture will be glued to the mat.

Friday

Read Aloud:  Clark the Shark Dares to Share by Bruce Hale Clark the Shark Dares to Share

Letter A Book from Reading the Alphabet

We are going to start our day by re-reading this book together. Then I will sit with each child on their own and listen to them read the books.

Pocket Chart Book from Reading the Alphabet

This is the second day that we have used the pocket chart book. Today we will start with me reading the sentences to them. Again, they will add the pictures to the sentence strips. Then they will take turns reading the story to me.

Syllable Count and Clip from Reading the Alphabet

This activity is going to be a game for us. We are going to lay down each card one by one. I will start by clapping out each syllable. For example “tur-tle” is two claps. I will repeat each word with claps one time. The second time I will have them clap with me as we say the word together. Then I will ask them how many claps was that? Once they tell me how many claps, we will take the clothespin and clip it onto the number.

Once we go through all of the cards, I am going to give them to the girls and let them try it by themselves.

Sight Word Wall

Today we will add our sight word to the word wall.

*Here are a few other Read Alouds for you to choose from.

Teamwork Isn’t My Thing, I Don’t Like to Share! By Julia Cook Teamwork isnt my thing

Share and Take Turns by Cheri J Meiners M. Ed. Share and Take Turns

After reading with them, have your child look at books for about 5 minutes on their own. Sit with your child and let them retell the story that they just looked at. This is important to prepare your child for reading.

Writing

Monday

Today we are using our Learn the alphabet workbook and Manuscript Writing for the letter A. The girls are writing the letter A and identifying letters in it on page 1 in the Learning the alphabet workbook. In our Manuscript Writing page we are completing the letter A on page 2.

*I have them work in the workbooks during this time because it allows me time to transition and take care of their brother.

Wednesday

Today we are practicing writing the letter A on their handwriting paper.

Writing story: Write about how we share. Let your child draw a picture and practice writing their own story. You can dictate for them.

Friday

Today the girls will be doing the Print Awareness from Reading the Alphabet. For this activity they will need to trace the picture and letter. Then they will help me cut out the sentences and mix up the words. They then will help me reassemble the sentences so that they read correctly. We will glue them onto a piece of paper.

centers

Monday

Trace the Letter A from Reading the Alphabet

Lacing Cards from Reading the Alphabet

Letter Picture Cards from Reading the Alphabet

For this activity, the girls will sort the beginning sounds with letters and pictures. Then they will place the cards into the pocket chart with the letter book pocket chart versions.

20 Grid from Reading the Alphabet

For this math activity, they will roll a die, then count the number rolled. Place that number of small objects on the board, starting at the top left and continuing until the board is full.

Wednesday

Letter A Coloring Page from Reading the Alphabet

Today they will color the pictures that start with this letter.

Sight word Maze from Reading the Alphabet

Initial Picture Sort from Reading the Alphabet

Place the letter cards at the top of your pocket chart. Shuffle the initial picture cards. Go through each picture naming the object like this “/b/ /b/ balloon. Child needs to identify the beginning sounds

Numbers 1 – 10 Dot Page from Reading the Alphabet

This activity needs to start with shuffling the number cards. The child picks a card and turns it over, identifying what the number is. Then they find that same number on their dot page and cover it up with an object. Continue until all the numbers have been identified.

Friday

Sight word search

Today we are going to find all of this week’s sight word, see, in a word search and circle it with our favorite marker.

Tracer Page

For this page, we are going to trace the sight word on this page.

Sight word wall

Read the sight words on the wall using the pointer. I have included other words that they recognize such as our family members names and pets names.

Pattern Cards

For this activity we are going to use the picture cards to create picture patterns. These picture cards match our letter this week, p. Your child can cut the pictures out with you or you can do it ahead of time to save time (which is what I did).

math

Monday

For today’s lesson, we are going to introduce the number values for the numbers 0, 1, and 2. Using manipulatives and number cards, I am going to show my girls that each number holds a value. For example, I will hold up the number zero and show no manipulatives. I will talk to them about how zero has no value. I will repeat this for one and two.

Their independent practice will be placing the number of manipulatives that match the number card for 0, 1, and 2. We will add each number to our math folder and show shapes in the amount of each number.

Wednesday

For today’s lesson, we are going to introduce the number values for the numbers 3, 4, and 5. Using manipulatives and number cards, I am going to show my girls that each number holds a value. For example, I will hold up the number three and show three manipulatives. I will explain to them that the number three means three items. I will repeat this for four and five.

Their independent practice will be placing the number of manipulatives that match the number card for 3, 4, and 5. We will then add these numbers and values to their math folder.

Friday

For today’s lesson, we are going to review all of the number values 0-5. Most of this lesson will be independent practice of finding the number value. I am going to make it a game similar to go fish. “I have a number 2, can you show me what two looks like?” This will be a fun way to wrap up number values.

*Tip for this entire week: It is important to have your child touch the objects as they count each manipulative. This allows a hands on approach to counting which is helpful for majority of children learning values and counting.

 

 

social studies

This week’s theme is Sharing. I chose to read the story Enemy Pie by Derek Munson with my girls to discuss friendship and sharing. After we finished reading the story, we made our own Enemy Pie to share with each other.

For an extension you can use the Enemy Pie lesson from Teachers Pay Teachers.

science

This week we are going to do the Apple Rotting Experiment from Gift of Curiousity.  This experiment is over four days.

For this experiment you will need:

Four glasses or cups, preferably clear
Labels
one apple cut into four slices
Water
Cooking Oil
Vinegar

Directions:

Label the cups air, water, oil, and vinegar. Place water, oil, and vinegar into the correct cup, the air cup will only contain an apple slice. Then place an apple slice in each of the cups. Take a picture (or have your child draw one) to show what the experiment looks like.

For days two and three, you will observe the apple slices. You can document by taking an updated picture or drawing a new one.

On Day four, you will once again observe the apple slices and document the final changes. Then discuss what happened with each of the cups. Discuss which one broke down the apple slice the most and the least. This is the final day of the experiment.

Art

This week is a fun outdoor activity. We are going to spray chalk splatter paint in our backyard. For this activity you will need:

Spray bottles (one for each color you want to use)
1/3 cup of cornstarch for each spray bottle
Water
Food Coloring (Regular or Neon)
Paper (Optional)

Put 1/3 cup of cornstarch in each spray bottle. Then fill up the remainder of the spray bottle with water. Drop food coloring in each spray bottle to make the desired color. Shake to mix.

This activity is better to spray outside so that the paint does not go everywhere. You can spray the concrete, grass, or even paper.

We are going to experiment with the concrete first, then move to poster board so that we can bring it inside to dry.

Role Play

This week will be independent role play.
