Kindergarten at Home Schedule
- Eat Breakfast
- Circle Time
Our daily circle time includes discussing the following (your child does not need to write the answers telling an adult or “teaching” a sibling is great!)
Reviewing the months of the year
Days of the week song (can be found on YouTube under Days of the Week Addams Family)
Day of the week today? yesterday? tomorrow?
Review ABC letters (upper case & lower case, is the letter a vowel or a consonant?)
Review numbers on a 100 chart
Review Sight Words
Count by ones to 100
Count by tens to 100
Read a story (parent reads to child or child reads to parent)
Talk about who is the author, illustrator, setting – where does the story take place? names of characters (the children can draw and either label or write a sentence about the characters)
Make or print out some charts (any size paper is fine). Samples included on family email.
- Phonics/Handwriting/Brain Train
In addition to the workbook(s)/worksheets that were sent home, the children may do the following activities…
Practice writing both upper case and lower case letters
Make a journal – write 1-3 sentences per page with an illustration
Please let your child write on his/her own. After your child has completed the writing, the parents may review the “talk to the hand” rules with your child.
” Talk to the Hand” Writing Rules
- Thumb says to start your sentence with an upper case letter
- Pointer Finger says to put spaces between your words
- Tall Finger says to stretch out your words (sound out)
- Ring Finger says to end a sentence with a punctuation mark . ? !
- Pinky Finger says to draw a picture that matches sentence or story
Practice, Practice, Practice Sight Words and Reading!
