Review the calendar OR weather portion with your child. OR, if they are interested, complete the whole thing! Experiment with what activities and what timing work best for your family.

- Math – 15 minutes
- Half sheet of numbers
- 1 set of cards from 1 to 9 for each player, but be sure to have an even number of 5s (you may have to combine cards from 2 decks to have enough 5s)
Warm-up: Prompt your child to trace and write the numbers 4, 7, and 5 on their half sheet using their best handwriting. Read the directions for playing Old Main while they work.
Play Old Main, following the directions below! Use your abacus to help you remember the pairs!
If you have time after Old Main, play Go To The Dump OR play Go To The Dump this evening with one of your parents or an older sibling!
- Music – Hymns – 5 – 10 minutes
Listen to the third verse of Great Is Thy Faithfulness from 2:50 to 3:30 2 times. Can you find the pair of rhyming words? Listen to it one last time and try to sing along!
- Free Play – 30 minutes
- Handwriting – 10 minutes
- Handwriting Workbook – Page 66
Please watch along with your child and ensure they are writing their letter W correctly.
Spend the next 5 minutes of the lesson practicing writing the letter W with your child using their finger. They will enjoy writing on soft, squishy or hard surfaces or even on your back! You can also use play-dough, spaghetti noodles or shaving cream to practice writing the letter W.
- Doing Words – 5 minutes
- Previous Words
- Tan lined strip of paper
Complete another Doing Words exercise with your child. See this video for a demonstration by Erica and Zenie.
- Recitation – Tongue Twisters – 5 – 10 minutes
Read both tongue twisters aloud and choose your favorite one to practice!
- Picture Study – 15 minutes
If you missed it two weeks ago, here is Sara’s Intro to Picture Study.
- The End of the 20th Century Painting
- Child’s silhouette
- Markers, crayons, water colors, pieces of fabric, etc.
- Half sheet of blank paper
- String, pipe cleaners, spaghetti, etc.
Silently study The End of the 20th Century with your child for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the painting over and ask your child to tell back the details they remember from the painting. Flip it over and study it again before your child begins their replica.
Kindergarten and Form 1 students, make a replica of The End of the 20th Century. Color the silhouette to look like you and cut it out. Then color the background and make the clouds with any material you would like. Get creative! See an example below:
- Literature – 15 minutes
Ask your child what they remember from yesterday’s story. What does the word “brer” mean? What happened to Brer Rabbit yesterday? Then listen along as Mrs. Resendez reads Chapter 2.
Great job, Kindergarten! Today we continued to read our new story in Literature, learned a new math game and wrote the letter “w” in our handwriting books!
As always, reading with your child in the evenings is a great way to grow their mental word bank and fluency, and they may want to show their Math Card Deck to a parent or sibling after dinner!
If you find yourselves with more free time, please refer to our Additional Resources page for some great websites to explore.
See you tomorrow for School Day #96.
