Clarifications for K/1 Learning
If you miss a day or few of school, here are some generic tips for helping your child continue learning anytime :)
- Read with your children at least twice daily.
- When children are on their own, encourage them to read books by looking at the pictures & creating their own words to the story.
- Encourage them to write their name on every paper.
- Ask your child to tell you what they drew; ask them to try to write down the sounds they hear in the words (1st graders- writing sentences for their pictures)
- Encourage them to write in lowercase letters (other than first letter in names)
- Encourage speaking in full sentences and explain their thinking
- Work on the skill of retelling! Choose a story, read it many times, and have your child retell the beginning, middle, and end by talking to you, a sibling, their pet, calling a relative over the phone, or drawing pictures.
- Do not write in the frame. Boxes are to put objects for counting.
- Small object examples: buttons, beads, paper clips, rocks, seeds
- Practice counting objects around the house
- Practice orally counting up to 100!
