ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT CLASSROOM LEARNING
*Based on individual student readiness
Letter of the Week: Practice printing the letter (upper & lowercase, tripod grip, top to bottom & left to right progression). Draw pictures that start with the letter of the week!
Extensions: Sound out and label your pictures using phonetic (invented) spelling.
Mini Alphabet Play-Dough Mats (Print and have fun using at home!)
Number of the Week: Practice printing the numeral (tripod grip, top to bottom & left to right progression). Draw a picture to represent the quantity!
Extensions: Practice printing the number word, represent the quantity with tally marks, write a number sentence (addition/subtraction resulting in the number of the week), draw the dots on a picture of a domino, fill in the ten frame(s), find the number on a number line, find the number on a number chart, discuss what comes before/after the number of the week, show the number of the week in Canadian coins.
*Activities should never be stressful for your child. If you have questions about your child’s readiness for print practice, please come and see us. We would be happy to recommend some fine motor strengthening activities and to demonstrate proper pencil grip technique and top to bottom/left to right directionality.
