We’ll do lots of fun things today! First we’ll count in tens, then look at doubling again, sort words into their word families, read, and fill in missing words. Let’s 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 (to be cut out in order to flash the words) can be downloaded here. There are also some practice assessments available on the page.
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!
Count in tens – forwards … and backwards!
If you need help getting started, watch this video:
Doubling – Remember that each sum will have an “is” line, a plus sum, and circles to show how you got to your answer.
Phonics – Word families:
Reading – Read all the words that have been ticked. Ask mom or dad to flash them to you. Try to say them quickly and get them all right.
Reading sentences – Try your best! We only have until tomorrow to practice these sentences because on Monday, we’ll get brand new ones!
Writing – Missing words:
You are a star! Well done for working so hard! Give the the person who helped you with your homework a BIG hug to say thank you for all their help.
Now go have some fun!
