FUN FRIDAY ACTIVITY (OPTIONAL):

MATERIALS NEEDED:

·2-4 dice

·10 small counters (pebbles, pennies, buttons, Goldfish crackers, etc.)

DIRECTIONS:

Each player starts with 2 dice and 5 rocks (or other counters).

The objective of the game is to capture all of the other player’s rocks.

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 “steal” a rock from the other player.

Continue playing until one player has ALL 10 rocks.

VARIATIONS:

·To practice number identification instead of addition, you can just use one die each!

·To practice subtraction instead of addition, subtract the smaller number from the bigger number, and the player with the larger difference gets to steal a rock from the other player.

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...

-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!
