Are you ready for a day of new exciting work? We are going to count in odd numbers, calculate totals and change, learn about symmetry, solve a story sum, practice our handwriting, find rhyming words in a poem, read, and rewrite sentences with the correct punctuation. In Life Skills we will talk about the places we find in our communities. There are also writing and speaking activities if Afrikaans is your additional language. Let’s jump right in!
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.
Count in odd numbers from 1 to 71:
Maths methods – summary: This is useful to keep on hand should you forget how each of the different methods in Maths is calculated. Mathematics is one of those subjects where you will always have to show how you got your answer, whether you are in Grade 1 or at university, so make sure to include all the steps for each type of sum. Always leave one line open before starting a new sum – as indicated by the orange crosses.
Handwriting: Because handwriting is assessed it is very important that special attention be given to the formation of letters. Make sure that letters start in the correct place, try to touch the bottom line and do not lift your hand whilst you write.
Phonics – Rhyming words:
Reading: Read the story! Sound out words that you don’t know. If you get stuck on some of the words in the lists above, practice them some more. Try to read more fluently every day. Also try to read with expression. Think about where your voice needs to be louder or softer. Remember that your voice needs to sound as though you are asking a question when there is a question mark.
Writing – Punctuation:
Life Skills: Look at the picture and talk about the places we find in our communities and how we can take good care of these places.
Afrikaans First Additional Language – Writing:
Afrikaans First Additional Language – Vocabulary: We are still learning about the things we find in our bedrooms. How many sentences can you say without the the sound? Try your best to always speak in full sentences.
The book I used for the Afrikaans vocabulary is the following:
You are amazing!
Now go have fun!
