Day 9

Today we’ll count in fives, subtract, start the last of our “a” words, read, and figure out what the jumbled sentence needs to say. Are you ready? Here we go!

If you’re new here, the resources used for counting in multiples, sounds learnt (to be cut into sound cards to build words), phonics lists and reading sight words can be downloaded here.

A note to parents: Allow your child to copy down by him-/herself as much as possible. Besides keeping them busy for longer, this allows them the opportunity to learn to copy correctly – a skill that they would ordinarily spend a lot of time perfecting in the classroom. Also, many of the tasks are a bit challenging. Instead of giving the answers, give clues or guide your child through the steps to discover the answer themselves. They will surprise you with just how clever they are!

Well done on your great work today! You can ask your mom or dad if you can put blankets or sheets over some chairs to make your own tent (only if it’s all right with them). Have fun!
