Day 86

Today is going to be a fun day! We are going to expand geometric patterns, learn about time, learn about different views of the same object, answer questions about a graph, write a phonics test, and do a reading comprehension activity. There is also a speaking activity if Afrikaans is your additional language. Can you do it? Yes, you can!

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.

Geometric patterns: Look carefully to see how many times the pattern has to be repeated.

Time:

Space and Shape – Views: The worksheet was taken from the Department of Basic Education’s Mathematics workbook 2.

Data handling:

Phonics – Test: Mom or Dad need to ask you these words in a test. Sound them out and then write them without looking at the words.

Reading – Comprehension:

Afrikaans First Additional Language – Vocabulary: We’re telling a story this week. Follow along with the video and try your best to always speak in full sentences. The picture was taken from the Department of Education’s Workbook 1 for Afrikaans First Additional Language.

You did it!

Now go have loads of fun!

Day 85

We are taking on some fun challenges today! We are going to sequence numbers, solve a story sum, calculate totals and change, talk about 3D shapes, practice our handwriting, write rhyming words, read, and rewrite sentences with the correct punctuation. In Life Skills we will learn about food. 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.

Maths methods – summary: A second page has been added. 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.

Sequence numbers and story sum:

Money totals and change: The worksheets were taken from the Department of Basic Education’s Mathematics workbook 2.

3D Shapes: The worksheet was taken from the Department of Basic Education’s Mathematics workbook 2.

Handwriting: Because handwriting is assessed it is very important that special attention be given to the formation of letters. Make sure that letters start and stop in the correct place, try to touch the top and bottom lines and do not lift your hand whilst you write.

Phonics – New words: This week we are revising some of the new sounds that we have learnt. 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.

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.

Rhyming words and Punctuation: There are only a few clues today. Try to find all the words that must be written with capital letters. Remember those full stops!

Life Skills – Food: Talk about where different types of food come from. This page was taken from the Department of Basic Education’s Life Skills workbook for Terms 3 and 4.

Afrikaans First Additional Language – Writing: Write the numbers from our story.

Afrikaans First Additional Language – Vocabulary: We’re telling a story this week. Follow along with the video and try your best to always speak in full sentences. The picture was taken from the Department of Education’s Workbook 1 for Afrikaans First Additional Language.

Wow! You did an amazing job!

Now go have fun!
