Learning Resource for Week Of: April 19th
Message from Teacher Christina:
Hello, I will be out on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Have fun continuing to play with Pet’s at home. This week your child will be learning about Vets. Remember you can also visit the virtual classroom for more pet activities.
Please join the parent meeting on April 20th at 3:30. We will be talking about science activities you can do at home with your children. Below is the link for the meeting.
Language / Literacy
Listen to A Pet for Pete: Listen along as I read you a story about Pete’s new Pet! Use the password I sent in Friday’s email.
Busy People: Vet by Lucy M. George. Mike the vet takes care of pets and farm animals.
Read Sally Goes to the Vet by Stephen Huneck. Sally the dog gets injured while playing in the yard and her family takes her to the veterinarian.
I spy: Play this fun game in the house or in the car. You need at least 2 players for this game but more can play. One person starts by saying “ I spy with my little eye something (color)” Then the other players take turns guessing what the item is. Example “ I spy with my little eye something blue” players “ is it the chair?”
Art / Writing
Look at the picture below together and talk about some of the things that could happen at the vet. What do you notice? It looks like the dog has a broken leg. The rabbits got out of their cage. What should we pretend the problem is? Have them choose what role they would like to pretend and what they will do. Then your child can draw that plan in their journal. Support them to write what they will play today.
Math / Science
Building and Counting: Build a tower with blocks, counting each block as you stack it. Encourage your child to try building a tower. Ask, “How many blocks do you think you can stack before it falls down?” Encourage your child to count while stacking. Once the tower falls, restate the total number of blocks that were in the tower. Challenge your child to build a taller tower the next time!
