RCS Kindergarten

Monday, April 6 – Wednesday, April 8

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!  As promised, here are the learning activities for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Hard copies can be picked up at ACES or RCS. Please call the ACES office 978-249-2406 to request a packet, or email me jwillhite@arrsd.org to request a packet pickup from RCS. The expectation is that each student will spend a minimum of 15 minutes each day on each subject area listed below. If you have any questions please email your child’s teacher. We will post more activities for the rest of the week on Wednesday. 

MONDAY:

ELA– Please listen to the story “Bear Snores on” by Karma Wilson, read by Mrs. Willhite with a special guest.   As you listen to the story, think about the cause and effect. Thinking of the cause and effect helps us to understand the plot, or the events in the story.

After that please complete the following activities:

  1.  Practice reading the words “said” and “want.” Practice writing the words.  Write two sentences using “said” and “want” using uppercase letters at the beginning of the sentence, finger spaces and end marks.

Here are some sentences you can write. 

He said they like the house. 

She said they want to have soup.

Write about “Bear Snores On”  by completing these sentences. How did you like the story “Bear Snores On”? I liked when the ______. It was funny when Rabbit and Mouse______. I liked how the animals ______. I also liked it when Bear_____.  Illustrate and label your pictures.

Please go on lexiacore5.com for 20 minutes.  I can see your progress!

Math 

1. Make 5 Matching Game (5 min)

Make some number cards, you will need two number cards of each, 0,1,2,3,4,5.  Shuffle and place the cards face down in two equal rows. 2. Partner A turns over two cards. 3. If the total of the numbers on both cards is 5, then they collect both cards. If not, then Partner A turns them back over in their original place facedown.

Variation: Provide each partner with a stick of 5 cubes to help them determine the missing part. For example, a student turns over 4, then breaks off 4 cubes, revealing 1 as the missing part; that way, he knows to look for the card with the number 1.

Can you count to 100 by ones?  Can you count to 100 by tens?

Making 3, 4, and 5 Finger Combinations (4 min)

This can be done with an adult showing fingers first then having the child take a turn to show a combination of any given number.

I’ll show you some fingers. I want to make 3. Show me what is needed to make 3.

TUESDAY:

For ELA- Clap out names of people in your house.  How many syllables? 

After that please complete the following activities:

Create a scramble up words game. Write the words SAID and WANT. Cut each letter out and then put the letters back to make the words again. Repeat, scramble the letters up and then make the words. To challenge yourself add a few more sight words you have learned.

For Math

Get out your white boards or plain paper to do this work. 

Problem 1: _____ + _____ = _____

We are going to write more number sentences today. If you look at what I wrote on the board, what kind of number sentences do you think we will be talking about? Do you remember what we put in the box in our lessons before? You are right!  If you have some counters, coins, pasta, or a small toy. Listen to my story:

6 bears were walking in the forest. Show the bears with your counters. 3 more bears came to walk with them. Show the new bears with your counters. How many bears were walking in the forest altogether? How do you know? You are right. We started with 6 bears and added 3 more bears to make 9 bears altogether. 

How could we write a number sentence about the story? What number should I put in the first blank? In the next blank? What about the blank after the equal sign?  How did you know where each of the numbers belonged?

Problem 2:

Let’s make up another story about the bears. This time, there were 3 bears sleeping and 7 bears playing. Show your groups of bears with your counters. How many bears in all? Can you tell me a number sentence about these bears? You can write that on the board. Please fill in the blanks.

Aubrie had 4 pennies. Her mom gave her 5 more pennies. How many pennies does Aubrie have now? Draw the pennies, and make a number sentence.
