Welcome to my online classroom!

Due to current circumstances we will be out of school for the remainder of the year. I have provided packets with this weeks assignments and they are readily available at the school. I will provide a copy of the instructions below with the links that are needed for the assignments.

If you have any questions feel free to message me on Class Dojo!

Thank You!!!

This is our last week of assignments! I’m sure you’re excited to finally get a break from teaching at home, you definitely deserve it! I know these last few weeks have been less than ideal, but I am so thankful that y’all have stepped in to teach these wonderful kiddos. As much as I miss them I am still so grateful to see the work they turn in each week, as well as the photos that y’all have sent me! I am sad that their year in PK is now at an end, but your kiddos will be phenominal Kindergartners!! I’m so excited to see them continue to grow, and acheive all that they set out to accomplish!

Assignment Instructions

This week all we have is an assesment instead of multiple assignments. Y’all will recognize this assesment as it is the one I use each six weeks. I would like you to complete these and return them next week so we can gauge their progress these last few weeks. Before I dive in on instructions please remeber these two important things:

1. I know it might be difficult but please do not help them answer in any way, we want them to know everything from memory.

2. Be positive the entire time! Don’t make faces when something is not right, it is okay for them to be wrong. If they answer wrong reply with something like “Good guess! or So close! but this is...”

A lot of kiddos tend to shut down and not accurately test if they feel like they’re wrong or not encouraged. 

Letter ID:

  • You will point at a letter and say “What letter is this?” 
  • Only aloud kids a maximum of 10 seconds to answer as this is supposed to show quick recognition.
  • Mark a line through all CORRECT answers.

Sound ID: 

  • You will point at a letter and say “What sound does this letter make?” 
  • Keep in mind that some letters have multiple sounds. 
  • Only aloud kids a maximum of 10 seconds to answer as this is supposed to show quick recognition.
  • Mark a line through all CORRECT answers.
  • I usually use big flash cards with these so do not be alarmed if they do not answer as many as you would expect them to. 

I can be ready to learn/ I can write my name:

  • Fill out accordingly
  • Leave any notes you may notice during their name writing

I can rhyme and play with words:

  • Give them examples of rhyming words that are not on the page to refresh their memory.
  • Prompt them with each word and let them choose a rhyming word
  • I typically give them 2-3 chances
  • If they answer correctly write the word in the blank
  • Idependent rhyming:
    • Allow them to make up their own rhyming words, even if they are not real words. 
    • As long as they sound like they rhyme, write them down.

I can name the parts of a book:

  • Grab any childrens book you have at home and point at each part
  • If they name it correctly mark a line through it

I can identify colors:

  • Walk around the house and point at different colors
  • Ask “what color is this?”
  • If they answer correctly mark a line through it

I can read sight words:

  • We didn’t get through much of these since our time was cut short, but they should be able to identify a few of the single and double letter words.
  • If they answer correctly mark a line through it

I can identify numbers:

  • Point at a number and say “What number is this?”
  • Only allow a maximum of 10 seconds for them to respond
  • If they answer correctly mark a line through it

I can count objects 1 to 1:

  • They must point at a cupcake for each number that they say to show appropriate counting of objects. You may dirrect them with “start here” or “continue to the next row” or “keep counting” or “count slowly”
  • Mark a line for every cupcake they correctly count
  • Stop and any point that a number or cupcake is skipped.
  • Oral counting:
    • Have them close their eyes and count as high as they can without skipping a number
    • Write down how far they accurately counted in the blank for May
    • You may leave any notes that you noticed during their counting

I can identify shapes:

  • Point at each shape and ask “What shape is this?”
  • If they answer correctly mark a line through it
