Handwriting skills (10-20 minutes)


Math (35 minutes)

Fluency (15 minutes) 

Practice (20 minutes)

  • ACTIVITY 1!  Make 3 sets of cards numbered 0 through 9 (or print three sets of the ones at the bottom of this document) and shuffle them together.  Take turns taking two cards, reading the number drawn that it creates and then taking three cards and reading the number it creates. Try making the smallest number possible with the cards you draw!  Now try making the largest number!
  • ACTIVITY 2!  Using the 100’s chart (at the bottom of this document) you can play mystery number!  Choose a number but don’t tell your child what the number is. Give them clues! For example, my number is 63.  This number is bigger than 10 but less than 70. They can now shade all numbers below 10 and above 70 because they cannot be the mystery number!  Continue to give clues until they can guess your number! 
  • ACTIVITY for addition!  Hold ten pennies in your hand.  Drop them onto the table. The number of heads represents one number, the number of tails represents the other.  Find the sum of the two numbers! Repeat 20 or more times and make a list of all of the combinations that you create!  
  • ACTIVITY!  Roll two dice and quickly call out the total of the number of dots on the top of the dice.  This activity can easily be done when a board game is played with the family!  
    • This website is a wonderful resource for practicing skills from this year.  It is free for students and you can sign them up for an account when you go to the website.  The skills that they will practice cover a variety of topics and the children are engaged with a cartoon video-game type feel as they complete missions to gain rewards.  There are some challenges and some easy spots which keeps them playing! I encourage approximately 20 minutes per day of play time on the site.

Science/Social Studies: Alternate daily

Learning the concept/video (15 minutes)

  • ACTIVITY!  Draw a picture of the lab experiment that you watched and write a couple sentence to summarize the results.  What surprised you? Did the experiment turn out as expected? Did anything go differently than they planned?  What did you think was going to happen? Don’t forget to name your artwork!

Hands-on learning/experiments/lab experiences from the videos (20 minutes)

Virtual Tours! (all grades) 

  • ACTIVITY!  Take one or two virtual tours each week and write a letter to someone in your family about why they should take it too!  Details are very important here. The letter should include some of the things that you saw!
