Kindergarten / Week 8 / May 4-8

Read 20 minutes every day. 

Daily Writing Journal:  Create a daily writing journal. 

Write about anything you want. You can also journal about your daily learning: 

  • What did you enjoy the most about your day? 

  • Why did you enjoy this moment? 

  • What did you learn? 

Weekly Learning Goal: 

  • I can retell a story using my own words.  
  • I can tell my opinion about a subject I know and explain why.   

Choice Activities:  

 

  • Think About and Write:   

Think about things that you can do all by yourself.  What are some things you can do?  Can you do a cartwheel?  Can you draw a picture of your favorite foods or games to play?  Can you help mom and dad put away the dishes after they are cleaned?  Can you help mom and dad fold the clean clothes from the laundry?  What are some things you can do?  Write about 3 things that you can do all by yourself and draw an illustration or picture to match. 

 

  • Listen to the story You Can Do It, Curious George by Margaret & H.A. Rey’s 

Kids Book Read Aloud: You Can Do It, Curious George! By Margret and H.A. Rey's

 

  • Identify the elements in a story.  Who were the characters, where is the setting which is where the story took place, and tell the events that happened by using the following sentence frames: 

 

  At the beginning ____ happens. 

 In the middle ____ happens.  

At the end ___ happens. 

 

  • With adult guidance, retell the main ideas of the story in your own words by telling or writing.  

 

  • Create your own questions about the story using who, what, where, when why, and how, and then answer your questions and write them in a journal or on paper. 

 

 

 

 

  • It is starting to get warmer outside.  Think about things you like to do outside when the weather is nice and warm.  Write and draw a picture about 3-5 things you like to do when it is warm and sunny outside.  Think about adding extra details using the 5W’s (Who, What, Where, When, Why) and how.  Think about who you are with when you are outside, what is it that you are doing, where are you at when you do these things, when do you like to do it, why do you like it.  Including these things are ways to help you make your writing more interesting and is a way to tell more as an author.  Then when you are ready to make your illustration, be sure add these extra details in your drawings as well.
