Things to work on
Below are some things that you can work on with your child.
* Putting on, buttoning and or zippering their coats.
* Buttoning and zipping their pants.
*Tying their shoes.
*Writing their name-first and last. Please have them begin their letters from the top of the line and go down, not from the bottom and go up.
*Talk about what they did during the day-help them remember in order things they did. This will help them when they write and recalling parts of a story.
* Recognize the letters of the alphabet. This does not mean just memorizing the song, although singing does help, but knowing that when they say A this is what it looks like. Flash cards or letters written on a piece of paper and touched each time they say it works.
* Recognizing shapes-circles, squares, triangles, rectangles. Play “I Spy a…” where ever you are.
* Recognizing and comparing the sizes of objects use the words: larger than…, longer than…, shorter than…, taller than… and so on.
* Looking for patterns-anything that repeats itself in an order. These can be anywhere in a book, on their clothes, outside. Colors, shapes, sizes of items.
Here are year end goals built into the program and aligned with the CCS for Math:
- Counts by 1’s and 10’s to 100
- Count on from any number other than 1
- Writes numbers correctly 0-20
- Demonstrates 1 to 1 correspondence
- Count up to 20 objects no matter how they are arranged (line; scattered; circle…)
- Count and know the next number is 1 more
- Compares numbers/groups of objects and know if they are greater than, less than or equal to another group
- Add and subtract in many ways-using objects or pictures to show the problem
- Know that numbers 11-19 are made up of tens and ones
- Solves addition number sentences minimally 0-5
- Solves subtraction number sentences minimally 0-5
- Solves addition and subtraction word problems minimally 0-10
- Use words to compare objects length or weight
- Count and sort objects into a group
- Identifies two and three dimensional shapes
- Analyze and describes two and three dimensional shapes
- Creates two and three dimensional shapes from small shapes-example use 2 triangles to make a rectangle
- Use terms such as above, below, next to, in front of, behind
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
