Writers, today we are going to look closely at some writing to make sure that the words have the correct blends and digraphs! You can have your 'Blends and Digraphs' chart handy or use the one that will be up on the screen! Let's get started!

​Click on the video for your video lesson:undefined

Click here for a quick part from our video lesson today! I forgot to fix one of the words in the writing. I wonder if you noticed! 

Thank you for all of your hard work. It can be tricky to capture all of the sounds we hear in words. Remember to always try your best and you can always go back to your work to fix it up! 

OPTIONAL:

If you are looking for more work, find some time to go outside and practice writing blend/digraph words outside with chalk! If you do not have chalk you can use your whiteboard or journal. I wonder if you can think of words that have blends. If not, I have some pictures down below that you can use or you can take your 'Blends and Digraph' chart outside with you to see if you can write the words on that chart. If you do not feel like going outside you are welcome to complete this practice inside at your computer! It is up to you on how you want to complete this practice!

READERS WORKSHOP

Unit 2: Reading Super Powers

Reading with Print Strategies and Sight Word Power


This unit is organized into 3 bends: 

Bend I Using Super Powers to Look and Point, and Then Read Everything

In Bend I the students have been introduced to the idea that all readers have super powers to help & guide them while they are reading. We have been focusing on our "pointer power". 

The children will be asked to activate their "pointer power" as they...

-read familiar texts

-use one-to-one matching

-tap each word, just once

-check that their reading makes sense

-point to words they know in a SNAP!

Bend II Taking on Even the Hardest Words

We are currently working in Bend II. In this bend the students will activate ALL of the super reading powers that they have learned thus far (pointer power, reread power, & partner power). These powers will be helpful as the students navigate how to take on even the hardest of words. They will learn that at times (just as true superheroes do) they will run into trouble with their reading. Things will get hard! But that they are TOUGH and have all the power within them to get the job done! The students will be introduced to picture power, snap word power, sound power, and persistence power.They will also explore how to turn more words into words they will know in a SNAP! 

Bend III Bringing Books to Life

MATH


Eureka Module 2: Two-Dimensional and Three-Dimensional Shapes

In Module 2, students learn to correctly name 2D and 3D shapes regardless of their orientation, size, or variation. Kindergarten students will transition from classifying and identifying shapes by how they look (e.g., “It’s a rectangle because it looks like a door.”) to more precise descriptions based on mathematical attributes (e.g., “It’s a rectangle because it has four straight sides and no openings.”).

 Introduced Terms

  • Above, below, beside, in front of, next to, behind (position words)
  • Circle
  • Cone (solid shape)
  • Cube (solid shape)
  • Cylinder (solid shape)
  • Face (flat side of a solid)
  • Flat (two-dimensional shape)
  • Hexagon (flat figure enclosed by six straight sides)
  • Rectangle (flat figure enclosed by four straight sides)
  • Solid (three-dimensional shape)
  • Sphere (solid shape)
  • Square (flat figure enclosed by four straight, equal sides)
  • Triangle (flat figure enclosed by three straight sides)

WORD WORK


Unit 2: Word Scientists

There are three primary goals for the children in this unit: letter knowledge and letter-sound correspondence, phonological awareness, and high frequency words.


WE ARE KINDERGARTEN WORD SCIENTISTS!

Bend I Studying the Alphabet and the Alphabet Chart

We are currently studying Bend 1 of this unit. The children are studying the alphabet linking chart while noting keywords and their corresponding letters. They will examine upper and lowercase letters, and share their observations. They will practice the alphabetic principle, where they will connect and grow their letter-sound knowledge. We will explore more in-depth with letter formation and the differentiation between upper and lowercase letters. Lastly, the children will investigate the alphabet chart by discussing the similarities and differences that they discover, and even design their very own!
