We have provided some resources in order to keep kids busy and learning in the event of a school closure. Please DO NOT do any of this extra work unless prompted by us.
Read daily for 20 minutes
Raz Kids is a leveled online library where kids can find just-right books to read. It also features a listening component and a post-read “quiz” for those who are interested. Each student in 1JM has been set up with a Raz Kids account. Jaja and Matt can track what has been read from the teacher account. The instructions for getting started are at the link below. Please note that if your child has an account with a specialist, you should continue to access it through the specialist’s account page.
Of course if you prefer hard copy books, we are totally fine with that too! As long as your child is reading daily 🙂
The Explode the Code workbooks and brand new reading comprehension workbooks are inside the manila envelope that was sent home. If we assign work in the workbooks we will assign specific pages to do.
The students should not do any work in these workbooks unless school is closed!
Other Reading Fun/Resources/Videos:
Remember to use the 5-finger retell!
Please have your child write the d’nealian alphabet in lower case every other day.
Please have your child write the numbers 1-20 every other day.
Below is a link to some scanned sheets we selected for the students to work on at home. These sheets are primarily review and practice, though the set up of the problems may be new. They should do two pages per day. They will likely need some help with the directions!
