Reading


Next Time You See a Sunset by Emily Rachel Morgan


Parents: watch to the end to see a sunset from orbit, and read the on-screen text to your child. It’s at 8:26 in the video. After the story, ask your child:


When the sun sets, is the sun really going down? (No -- the Earth is rotating and it looks to us like the sun is going down.)


When it’s sunny outside your home, is it day or night for people living on the opposite side of the Earth? 


Is your shadow the same length all day? (No. It gets longer or shorter based on where the sun is overhead. Move a flashlight around an object and watch its shadow change.


Bonus: Here’s a view of the world showing night and day. Click the “map” tab for a second view.

Reading


Fortunately by Remi Charlip


After the story, ask your child:


Did you notice a difference in the fortunate and unfortunate drawings? Maybe something about their color? (The unfortunate drawings are in black-and-white)


Fortunately, the girl telling the story loves the story. Did she do a good job?


You have seen a lot of stories told in videos since learning from home. What do you like or dislike about how adults tell stories in their videos? What would you do differently if YOU told the stories?

Reading


Could Be Worse! by James Stevenson


After the story, ask your child:


Why did Grandpa say “Could be worse” whenever his grandchildren complained about something?


If you were the grandfather, what is a  crazy story you could tell about something you did during your day?


On the first day of kindergarten it would have sounded crazy to say school would close and you would learn from home. Could it be worse? (Yes. Be thankful that you are safe and all your school friends are safe, and we know we will get to see each other again at school in the future. Instead of saying “It could be worse!” we can say, “It will be better!”)

Reading


Nobody Listens to Andrew by Elizabeth Guilfoile


After the story, ask your child:


Why does nobody listen to Andrew? (Everyone is busy and focused on their own lives.)


Andrew yelled to get attention at the end of the story because there was an emergency. What are examples of emergencies that you should yell about?


What are some better ways to get someone’s attention when you need to say something important, and it’s NOT an emergency?

Counseling

Please check your assignments from Ms. Kelly  in google classroom under counseling.

Writing tips:  Write the words out on a separate piece of paper for your child to copy. Phonetic spelling is shown above for the sample sentences, but if your child knows the actual spelling, that’s good too. Emphasize proper capitalization and using “two finger” spacing between words. Work on keeping letters grounded on the line instead of way above or below or through the writing line.   Transitional Kindergarten students may copy a sentence that they dictate to an adult.
