First Grade: Ms. Vilimas

Homework for this week/practice ideas beyond reading stories:

During the first three weeks of school our class will be focusing on key skills that will provide a strong foundation for our learning. Here are some activities you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing.

My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words Play a matching game to review the words I, like, do, to, you, he, can, go, a, has with your child. Write each word on two index cards or pieces of paper. Turn over the cards, mix them up, and spread them out. Have your child choose a card, read the word, choose another card to turn over, and read the word. If the cards match, the child keeps the cards.

Letter-Sound Workout

Sound Search Say the word apple and have your child say the sound it begins with, say the letter for the sound, and write the letter. Repeat for insect. Then say the following letters and have your child find an object or a picture of an object whose name begins with each letter: m, s, p, t, n, r.

Write the words and sentence below and have your child read them:
