Day 51

We are taking on some nice challenges today! We are going to count in odd numbers, calculate totals and change, learn about division with a remainder, solve a story sum, practice our handwriting, search for rhyming words in a poem, read, and rewrite sentences with the correct punctuation. In Life Skills we will learn about the people in our community. There are also writing and speaking activities if Afrikaans is your additional language. Let’s get started!

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:

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.

Money – Totals and change:

Division with a remainder:

Story sum:

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 – New words: The new lists are available to print here. You don’t need to learn or write the sentences – they are simply there to help you understand what the words mean. Only sound out the words in the blocks on the left and ask Mom or Dad to test how well you know them.

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: Talk about the people in our communities and the work that they do.

Afrikaans First Additional Language – Writing: Complete the sentences with your own information.

Afrikaans First Additional Language – Vocabulary: We’re learning about fruit and vegetables. Try your best to always speak in full sentences.

The book I used for the Afrikaans vocabulary is the following:

Wow! You did an amazing job!

Now go have fun!
