April / May

Life Science - 

Structures and Functions of Living Orangisms/

Plants and Animals:

What do plants and animals need to survive?

What are living things?

There are many different kinds of plants and animals on Earth.

We will compare characteristics of animals that make them alike and different

from other animals and nonliving things.

We will compare characteristics of living and nonliving things in terms of their:

  • Structure
  • Growth
  • Changes
  • Movement
  • Basic Needs

Next Generation Science Standards

K-LS1-1.

Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive. 

[Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include that animals need to take in food but plants do not; the different kinds of food needed by different types of animals; the requirement of plants to have light; and, that all living things need water.]

K-ESS2-2.

Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs. [Clarification Statement: Examples of plants and animals changing their environment could include a squirrel digs in the ground to hide its food and tree roots can break concrete.]

K-ESS3-1.

Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live. [Clarification Statement: Examples of relationships could include that deer eat buds and leaves, therefore, they usually live in forested areas; and, grasses need sunlight so they often grow in meadows. Plants, animals, and their surroundings make up a system.]

K-ESS3-3.

Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.* [Clarification Statement: Examples of human impact on the land could include cutting trees to produce paper and using resources to produce bottles. Examples of solutions could include reusing paper and recycling cans and bottles.]

Can you do this?
      Create a number story...

Look at this image, can you create a story problem?

Can you write a number sentence too?

Play games with the Ten Frames and the Teen Numbers...1 ten and ? ones...  Show it on the Ten Frames?

Write the number I created for you on the Ten Frames...

Pull out the TEN FRAMES and play games!

we will be practicing two ways of counting 10's  ( eleven, twelve, thirteen.... and  1- ten  1-one, 1-ten 2- ones, 1-ten 3- ones)

 

Practice modeling correct number formation!

Go outside with a paintbrush and water and teach your child how to make 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 on the sidewalk!

( Parents: Make sure you model the numbers first, you are working on making sure the numbers are facing the correct direction, so modeling is the key)

Something to Think About

Unknown-1.png
 

I was a town child, it is true, but that did not prevent me enjoying open-air life, with plants and animals.

Georg Brandes

There is something basic about protecting land by taking it off the market. People should be able to enjoy where they live while at the same time protect the plants and animals around them.

Tom Hanks

Our Language Art Focus

Phonics:

1) Work on naming  all capitol and lower case letters out of order

2) Work on saying the sound of upper and lower case letters out of order

3) Match or say as many words that start with the letter you see or are shown

4) Create rhyming words 

5) Work on identifying beginning  and ending sound of a word

Reading:

guide  your child to ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

guide  your child to identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.

guide your child to describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text.

Writing Skill:

* Work on the formation of upper and lower case letters

*Work on sounding out and writing the letter that matches the sound to make words

* Work on leaving finger space between to words

A good way to start these is to work on your child's first and last name: teach each letter name , sound, correct way to make the letter and start using lower case. Make this fun, use play dough, shaving cream, a paintbrush and water, but model first!

Start small and add on!

Rainbow Letters to work on:

 a, s, m, t, r 

 i, b, h, n, v 

 o, d, c, f, g,
