Zoom Meeting Vacation-Disney

Activity Number One: We are going on vacation! I know we are stuck at home but we can still use our imaginations! I want us all to dress up for your favorite dream vacation or vacation that you have already been on. For example, maybe a snow cap and coat if you would like to go snowboarding in the mountains, a Disney headband/hat for a trip to Disneyland, lei for a trip to Hawaii, Leo shirt for Lego land, sunglasses and beach gear for a trip to the beach. Be creative! If you want to make a backdrop, props or a picture to share that would be fabulous!

 

Activity Number Two- We are going on virtual Disney rides! We are going to have so much fun! I can’t wait! We can’t leave the house but we can bring Disney world to our home! (DO NOT watch the videos before the meeting please!) I am providing the links only if there is a technology issue.

Zoom Meeting May 27th- Fairy Tale Day and Special Guest Mr. Green!

 

Typically, the first graders participate in a fairy tale ball at the end of the year. Fairy tale elements are one of our first grade SOL’s. I would love to host our own "Fairy Tale Day" on Zoom! Your child can dress up as his/her favorite fairy tale character. It does not have to be just princesses and princes! Think-- 3 Little Pigs, Robin Hood, Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Jack and the Beanstalk, Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, etc.

 

Dressing up is totally optional-- Remember we can only see a headshot- so full body costumes are not necessary.

 

On this zoom meeting, we will listen to the Three Little Pigs- or a version of it- and then I will challenge your child to build a three little pigs' home and post it on Bloomz or email it to me! 

 

Next, we will play a “Would You Rather Game?”- Please have a piece of paper with the letter A on one side and the letter B on the other side.

 

Your child will put the letter to the screen.

 

For example,

"Would you rather:

 

A- Have a genie like Aladdin

or 

B- Have your own powers like the Incredibles?"

 

Last, we will finish up our meeting with a visit from Mr. Green. Please have drawing materials ready.

 

We are going to have so much fun! I can’t wait!

Free trial to Raz-Kids! There you will find leveled books for your child to read. I will be emailing out log in information, soon! I already entered a close reading level for your child based on his/her last assessment. 

-Below are Performance Assessments-
These are what would be optional performance assessments that would take place at the end of each unit. Feel free to review and use these at home. We are working on unit 4 at this time. 
Unit 1 
--In their reader’s notebook, students will provide a response by drawing and writing. The response could include: description of characters, main events, or personal connection
--Students will create a page for a class book that tells a personal narrative about them.  When planning their page, they should brainstorm with their teacher and fellow students to come up with possible ideas.  When creating their page, they should:  • stay on topic,   • write at least two sentences,  • use uppercase letters when needed, and  • end punctuation
Unit 2
--After a read aloud, students will retell the story orally or draw pictures on a story board.  Students should include the characters, setting, and events in correct sequence.  If students retell in pictures, they should write simple sentences to explain their pictures.
Unit 3
--After a read aloud or independent reading, students will work in groups to conduct a book talk about the book they are reading.  The book talk should cover the big ideas:
 • information about the characters, 
 • questions about the book while you are reading, and 
 • opinions about the book
--Students will create a written advertisement or commercial about their favorite movie. It should include evidence to support why they think this movie is the best and visuals to make it interesting.  After finishing, they will share this with a peer to receive feedback to improve their advertisement. Keep in mind that you will use all steps of the writing process to complete this assignment.
Unit 4
--Students will preview a nonfiction text and generate questions (who, what, where, when, how, why) about the topic. Students will read and note answers to their questions. The focus of this task should be on providing evidence of learning from text they’ve read.
--Students will create an informational book or poster about a nonfiction topic of their choice, organized on a graphic organizer. Students will research with a partner using books available in their classroom, library, or by using online sources.  Students should include facts that they have learned and begin to include text features such as headings and illustrations. Students will use all steps of the writing process to complete this assignment. 
Unit 5 (have not started)
--Given a picture, students will write descriptively to capture the image in their writing. The student should use appropriate adjectives and verbs to describe the picture. The reader should be able to visualize what they've described. (1.7g,h)
--The teacher will read a descriptive poem, having students visualize the images of the poem. Then students will draw a picture of what the poem made them see. Students will think about which details from the poem appealed to their senses. Students should be sure the picture captures the theme of the poem.
 --
You will create a poem about a topic of your choosing.  You may use a shape poem, list poem, rhyming poem, non-rhyming poem, or other style. Your poem should include: 
  • descriptive words, 
  • use capital and lowercase letters when needed,
 • correctly spelling known words.  Keep in mind that you will use all steps of the writing process to complete this assignment. (1.7g; 1.11a,b; 1.12c,d,e,g)

Mathematical Art- Art is everywhere in our world and is intimately linked to math although we may not always think of it in that way. Poetry is all about following certain patterns within the syllables you use, music finds the ratios between tones so they harmonize at the right times, and in the visual arts we can find all sorts of geometry and patterns. This activity is about noticing and sharing the math that is in the art from different cultures.   
https://www.youcubed.org/wim/mathematical-art-k-12/

Virtual Manipulatives- These tools, which students have been using in their mathematics lessons, can be used on a computer or tablet. Drag the manipulatives into position to see math concepts come alive! For help while using each app, look for the "i" symbol for more information

 Snap Words to Practice at Home 



If you choose to complete the phonics project, below is a cheat sheet for parents:
-Digraphs are two letters that come together to make one sound- ch, sh, th, wh, ph, ck, etc.
-Blends are two consonants that are side by side in a word. They can occur at the beginning or the end of a word. The consonants that make up a consonant blend cannot be separated by any vowels, and the effect is that the sound of each given consonant in the blend is produced but so quickly that the sounds combine and blend together in a smooth manner.

-Letter twins are two consonants found in the middle of a word that are the same (twins). Letter twins cannot be vowels and they cannot occur at the end of a word. If you split the letter twins apart, it will tell you where the syllables divide. For example, "butterfly = but,ter,fly"
-Vowel Teams- two vowels together that assume either the sound of one of the vowels or a completely different sound. We have a class vowel chart that we created. You can find this in the photos from the Vowel Town post. Examples of vowel teams are: oo, ou, ai, ea, etc.
-Long vowel silent e- When a word has a long vowel with a silent e at the end of a word. Examples are: cage and ape.
