Other great ways to practice Math skills:
- Todo Math app is one we use in the classroom. Games for a range of skills. (Some good games for our skills right now are "Missing "Number, "100 board quiz", and "basic operations games")
- Roll 2 dice and add the numbers together, then write out the 2 subtraction and 2 addition facts in that number family. (For instance, I roll a 2 and a 7. My number family facts are 2+7=9, 7+2=9, 9-7=2, and 9-2=7)
- Practice counting a group of coins or draw coins to show an amount of money. 28 cents = 2 dimes, 1 nickel, and 3 pennies. Don't allow your student to use all pennies! :)
- Counting practice videos we use in the classroom: Count to 100 video, Count by 2s video, Count by 5s video
Bible story: Jesus dies on the cross (Part 1, Matthew 21: 1-17 and Part 2, Matthew 26:36-61)
Biblical character trait: Patience means waiting on the Lord with a happy attitude even when things go wrong. Very fitting for this time in our lives. :)
Starting April 6th- Memorize Psalm 139:1-16. Due April 17th, by 4:00 pm - Video of you saying verses 1-16. We will NOT be using Seesaw for this. More information about submitting this video will be coming soon in an email.
Memory verse: Psalm 139:1-16 "O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O Lord! You hem me in behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful to me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me; Your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day for darkness is as light to You. For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful. I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be."

1. Read to your child every day for at least 10 minutes.
2. Your child can practice reading a couple of stories a day from their Phonics readers that we sent home. These will need to be returned. We reuse these from year to year. Parents remember to ask comprehension questions as your child reads, or after they are finished with the story. Examples of the types of questions you could ask: What did Bob do after he saw his friend at the park? How do you think Sally felt when she found out Grandma was coming to visit? What in the story made you think that?
3. Log in to A-Z kids reading online to read books on your own level. You can even record yourself reading for your teacher! :) We'd love to hear you read to us! If you have not recorded yourself reading a story, we would love to hear how you're doing.
Complete one of the following throwing challenges using the two video links below. One is an outdoor activity that will require a ball and your parents permission :) and the other is a very simple indoor activity with some laundry equipment! Challenge a family member to compete along with you while you complete your activity. Have fun!
Please sign up on your class sign up genius page.
While we'd love to still have our guest readers be able to share the books they love in person, recordings will have to do for now.
