Hello families!

Our teachers at VDR have put together daily enrichment assignments for each grade level. These activities will be updated weekly and are designed to keep students thriving while away from school. The work will provide enrichment and we strongly encourage students to engage and complete the work as if we were meeting daily to keep learning going. While no grades will be given, students will benefit from the current interactive nature of the enrichment planner.

We’ve also included weekly updates from P.E., Entertainment Technology/Arts, Library and our School Counselor. Feel free to do one or all of the ancillary activities as an added bonus. You’ll really want to check these out as they are really neat and provide additional guidance during this time. We hope that this is helpful in continuing your child’s learning at home while schools are closed due to COVID-19.

ELA

(Spelling, Grammar, Writing, Reading)

Choose a book from home or go to

Audible Stories 

~ OR ~

Temporary East Baton Rouge Parish Online Library Card 

 and choose a book matching the daily description to complete the provided activities.

Read a Non-Fiction Book About Weather/Springtime

 

Have the student retell the story turning 1 page at a time.

Have the student draw a picture after reading the book and try to write a sentence at the bottom of the page. They will not be able to spell the words, but encourage them to write at least the first letter of the word. Remind them that a sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a punctuation mark. They are familiar with period, exclamation mark and question mark. As always have them write their name in the upper left hand corner of the page. Once they can independently write their first name, encourage them to write their last name as well.

Uppercase/Lowercase Letter Match

Have the uppercase and lowercase version of all 26  letters written on small pieces of paper or use magnetic letters - place uppercase letters in a container and lowercase letters in another container.

Have the student close their eyes and then pick a letter from either container and then find its matching letter. (Ex. draws capital A, matches to lowercase a).

Use a chart to match both uppercase and lowercase letters to.

Re-Read the Non-Fiction Book About Weather/Springtime

 

Before re-reading, discuss what they remember from the story, beginning, middle and end.

Have the student retell the story turning 1 page at a time.

Discuss what you learned from the story and compare it to the weather outside. Make a chart comparing the story vs. outdoor observations.

Letter Sound Hunt

Have the uppercase and lowercase version of all 26  letters written on small pieces of paper or use magnetic letters - place uppercase letters in a container and lowercase letters in another container.

Have the student close their eyes and then pick a letter from either container, then go around the house looking for something that begins with that letter. Continue until all letters are used.

Keep a record of the items you find that match the letters.

Fun Friday!

Rice writing!

Place rice in the bottom of a pan. Have the students “write” their name, letters,  shapes, numbers, and small words in the rice with their finger.

Use this easy rice dying recipe to create even more fun!  

Math

Classification/Sorting

Sort various cereals, candy, pasta, or beads. Then, make a number graph and count how many were in each column.  

Shape Walk

Go on a nature walk and count how many shapes you see. Shapes can be seen in signs, windows, doors, playgrounds, or car wheels.

Building Numbers to Sets

Build numbers on a math mat. Make number cards 1-10.  Use pom poms, coins, or cereal.  Pick a number card and count out that many items.

Number Card Tower Building

Use the number cards from the previous activity. Pick a card, count out that number of blocks, and build a tower.

Fun Friday!  

Can you measure the ingredients?

Place about 1 cup of flour or rice in a container. Give the student measuring spoons and small measuring cups. Place these materials on a large cookie sheet or plastic trash bag on the floor. Talk with your student using the real terms (teaspoon, tablespoon, cup, half cup, etc.) for the measuring tools. Have them predict how many of each one it will take to fill a different container. Then measure and count to see if prediction is correct.

Science

Weather Observations

With help from an adult, go outside to observe the temperature. Go out three times throughout the day (morning, lunch, and evening) and discuss the differences in the temperature at the different parts of the day.

Weather Observations

With help from an adult, go outside to observe the weather. Go out three times throughout the day (morning, lunch, and evening) and discuss the differences in the weather at the different parts of the day. Draw what

you see.

Weather Observations

With help from an adult, go outside to observe your shadow. Go out three times throughout the day (morning, lunch, and evening) and discuss the differences in the location, shape, and size of your shadow at the different parts of the day. Draw what

you see.

Weather Observations

With help from an adult, go outside to observe a cloud. Go out three times throughout the day (morning, lunch, and evening) and discuss the differences in the location, shape, and sizes of the clouds at the different parts of the day. Draw what

you see.

Fun Friday!

Ramp it up!

Using a box, piece of wood, book, etc. create a ramp by leaning it against a piece of furniture. Use various size toy cars or balls to have a race to see which one gets to the bottom the fastest. Have the students predict which object will win. Ask what will happen if the angle of the board is changed? Which way do you need to move it to make the object move faster or slower? Make it a family competition. Students can create blue ribbons or trophies from toilet paper tubes for the winner.

Reading Time! Take a listen and make a list of your favorite verbs from the book.

Action Time! Are you camera ready?

Write an exercise program using fun action verbs. Get someone in your home to do it with you!

Math

Start with a fun lesson reviewing counting numbers forward, backwards, and between.

Join with this code DJXCE using the following link https://share.nearpod.com/vsph/hmTWCYA1Lu

How much can you remember from yesterday’s lesson?

Grab some index cards or cut some paper into squares and write numbers 1-120* 

Now the fun part. Mix all of those numbers up and set a stopwatch to see how fast you can order the numbers in order from 1-120.

*Parents, you can alter the activity as you like. If your child is having trouble writing his/her numbers to 120. Then try a number that is most comfortable to them. For instance, write numbers from 1-50 or 1-70.

Start with a fun lesson on Nearpod reviewing numbers. Join with this code XNZCI using the following link https://share.nearpod.com/vsph/sVxqMc0uNu

Today I want you guys to draw a table long enough to fit ten numbers on a sheet of paper. In the rectangle I want you to write the numbers 1-10.

*See link below to view all the examples to complete today’s activity.

Nearpod activity

Next, draw another frame below the one you just did with the numbers 11-20.

Continue on with the following patterns 21-30; 31-40; 41-50; 51-60; 61-70; 71-80; 81-90; 91-100; 101-110; 111-120.

Now that you have all your numbers in the chart, using a yellow crayon (or you can circle the numbers) color all the even numbers in the chart.

Then using a blue crayon, color all the odd numbers in the chart.

Have some help you creating an empty number chart similar to the one you worked on yesterday. Using a stopwatch, let's time ourselves to see how quickly we can write our numbers 1-120.

Ready, Set, GOOOO!!!

Social Studies

Students will access lessons on The Character Tree.

Please view the parent letter:

Character Tree Parent Letter

Start your week by watching The Character Tree Video. Before Watching:  For a quick discussion, parent ask your student(s) what they think they already know about the character trait of empathy and have them share with you. After Watching: have student(s) share examples of empathy from the video. To extend their concept of empathy you could ask them to think of a specific way that they could show this trait in the coming day or week.Go to: https://charactertree.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/The-Character-Tree-Empathy-Jonas-Salk.pdf

Follow up the video with the foldable book, have student(s) read independently or with your help.. These books would make a nice home-school connection, or add them to student’s book boxes.  The cut and paste comprehension page would be a good fit as a subsequent activity.

Introduce student(s) to the empathy words! If you can  print these words  on colored paper and cut them down before handing them out to student(s).. Let student(s) know that since they are becoming experts on empathy, they will get to be on the lookout for people who are showing this trait. When they notice someone showing empathy, they can write their name on the award and the reason for receiving it.Try to find at least three(3) people to share with the teacher/class to be posted.

After spending time learning and talking about empathy and Jonas Salk during the first half of the week, today would be a good day for checking student understanding with our comprehension questions.

If there is anything that you didn’t get to earlier in the week, finish that up today. Otherwise, today would be a good day for the making words activity and the word search.
