NTI Day 4

Hello Families! Attached is the NTI Day 4 Activities in case you lost yours. It will also be on our blog along with the below activities. Below are some activities if your child wanted to do them instead of the ones the sheet. Just mark it on the sheet. Please turn in the NTI Day 4 tomorrow. Thanks so much for all you do!! Literacy: Reviewing sight words is so important to keep a student remembering the words he/she already knows. Here is a fun sight word song to do this. Listen and sing it together. Pick one to two words your student struggled with and practice afterwards by writing or chanting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idexNu0SZpU We have been learning about silent e-- there are some great activities on Starfall--under number 5 and 6 activities http://www.starfall.com/n/level-a/learn-to-read/load.htm We have also been reviewing digraphs sh, wh, ch, and th. Starfall also has great activities to go with this- number 4-activities Math: We have been learning about 3D shapes. Here is a fun 3D shape song the students love. You could also go on a 3D shape hunt in your house looking for examples of cylinder, sphere, cone and cube. We have also been working on easy addition, just recently using the actually + and = sign. You could make up some addition sentences under 10 and have your child write the addition sentence down. Writing: We have been working on writing informational pieces. You could look up any subject your child wants to learn about-- last week we focused on presidents. Then help your student write 1 to 2 facts sentences about it. I would love it if they turned these in and read them to our class!! Here is a fun site with lots of non fiction info: http://kids.nationalgeographic.com Kids' Games, Animals, Photos, Stories, and More ... kids.nationalgeographic.com Play games, watch videos, learn about animals, and places, and get fun facts on the National Geographic Kids website.
