This week, there are two different packets in this file, one for TK and one for Kinder. They do have some similar worksheets but there are certain math and language arts worksheets that are geared towards the each level of learning. We have also included practice with sorting, letter recognition, counting, patterning, and scissor practice. This week, we're continuing the "A Pancake is a Circle" book craft for students to print out and do. Directions for how to make this craft is included, along with photos of each completed project.
Starting this week, we will be including packets for BOTH TK and Kindergarten. Two grade levels, two packets! Because of this, these are great packets for split (combination) classes! A list of recommended HeidiSongs music videos for the week is also included, and it links to our HeidiSongs internet video site. However, a subscription to our internet video streaming site is not included. You are welcome to eliminate this page as needed.
Just like the previous weeks, we've divided everything up by day of the week, (Monday-Friday) so you have the option of sending this entire packet to students, with everything labeled out on what to do each day! Permission is granted to distribute to families/students in your classroom.
On all the hands-on activities for math, I have noted it's fine to substitute another type of toy or manipulative, such as Lego bricks, etc.
Here are some tips - I'm teaching remotely this year, so I plan to print out the packets and send them to families, divided by day of the week. (Yay, organization!!) We will start with our Morning Meeting, and then I will give directions for each activity (all via Zoom or Google Meets,) sing with the children using the music videos referenced, and have the children do the activities right there while I “watch” online and wait for questions. Children that finish early can “go play” or read a book at home until we are ready to proceed with the next activity. However, this packet would also work for families to just use them without video guidance from the teacher. It should work either way.
Let me know if you have any questions! And keep an eye out for more Distance Learning Packets for the weeks to come!
