I will be adding more specific links for concepts we have learned this year. Please keep checking back to see what new links have been added! Feel free to use what you find to supplement these materials. Don't forget the links that are on the "Useful Links" page as well!


Reading
Scholastic Read at Home- I HIGHLY recommend this site! The materials on this site are amazing and they are all FREE! There are fiction and nonfiction books, as well as a game and activities for each day!

Alphabats- Rhyming Words
This game is a super fun way to practice phonemic awareness. Click on the bats’ bellies to hear the words, and then match the words with rhyming sounds. Match 6 words correctly and then help the bats collect fireflies!

Picture Match- Use this to practice short and long vowel sounds in words.

Storyline Online- Use this website to listen to famous actors and actresses read stories to you!


Writing
Comic Creator Tool- Use this tool to create a comic strip story. You can choose backgrounds, characters, props and speech bubbles!

Write an All About Me Story- Use favorite pictures and the printables on the Get Started page to practice writing an autobiography. (Link at the top for Spanish!)



Math
Addition Strategies videos- Use this link to view several addition strategies we have used in class. So far we have learned "Make 10," "Doubles," and "Doubles +1."

Ten frame Mania- Play this game to practice building numbers to 20 on a ten frame. Start at medium, level 2.

How Much? How Many?- Play this game to practice comparing numbers. First find how which set has more or less, then tell how many more and how many all together!

NumTanga- Use this game to match different ways to show numbers. Start with NumTanga Jr., and play levels 4-6. Then you can move onto NumTanga levels 0-3.

Math Limbo- Use this game to practice decomposing numbers. I would suggest watching the learn section first. Then begin at level 1.

National Zoo Animal Cam- Use these webcams to watch our local zoo animals! Why don't you create a story about the animal you are watching? Imagine all of the adventures your animal could get into! Take a picture or scan your story and email it to me.

Cooking With the Sun- Try this experiment to review what we learned about the sun! Remember, the sun heats the air, water and earth. You can actually make smores with the heat from the sun using this solar oven! Print the graphic organizer to record your information.
