THURSDAY FEBRUARY 18TH ASYNCHRONOUS DAY: Please complete the worksheet that I sent home today (it's in your child's folder). The children should 1)read the sentence. 2)cut and glue the correct picture to go with the sentence. 3)circle or highlight the high frequency words in each sentence. Students should also choose 6 high frequency words (see list above). Write two sentences incorporating those 6 words. Here is an example: "I can see a white dog. "The car can go up and down the hill." At this stage of the year, the kdg. children can write two simple sentences. Don't worry about spelling. Younger students may still dictate or trace their sentences. For math, students should also make a prediction on how many inches of snow they think will fall. Please write your prediction on a post-it or index card. **Bonus**Estimate the number of inches of snow then  measure the snowfall. Was your estimate too high, too low or pretty close? Bring completed work back to school on Friday.

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 19TH ASYNCHRONOUS DAY: Using the Wilson lined paper that I sent yesterday, please practice all of the lower case "slide" letters and lower case "super c" letters that we have learned so far. Use the list of Wilson handwriting letters above in this newsletter. Look closely at the list for the lower case letters. You can find guided videos for each letter on our Google Classroom page. The children should practice 3 of each lower case letter (there are 9 all together).

Read a book (your choice!). Illustrate the beginning, middle and end of the story. What happened first? next? last? **BONUS** did you see any high frequency words in your book? Which words did you hear?

We're exploring fractions next week. As a warm-up lesson please talk about fractions in real life today. For example, did you cut your sandwich in half today? Did you divide a pizza into 8 slices? Did you pour half a glass of milk? Write your real life fraction experience on a post-it or an index card.

Send all of your work into school on Monday.
