  • Home Reading: Ask Who, What, When, How, Where & Why questions during and after reading to strengthen comprehension. To strengthen inferencing and predicting ask questions such as: Why did they do that; would you have done the same; what would have happened if; how were they feeling and why; how would the story change if it was written from a different character's point of view, in a different location, or a different time; what hints are the author's giving you; why did the author do this
  • Practice reading poetry to develop fluency
  • Journaling or Diary writing - daily writing about important, memorable, or fun things they do.
  • After reading activities: reflection, write, write a paragraph to recall what was read, write a new ending to a story, sequence a story in a paragraph, or write about a lesson learned in the story, etc.
  • Story Prompts: give your child an oral or picture prompt to write a story with a clear beginning, middle, and ending
  • Spelling City:
  • Raz Kids:
  • Mo Willems - Lunch Doodles with Mo:

  • Prodigy:
  • Math Aids:
  • Card Games:
    • Addition/subtraction speed: split the deck between players, then at the same time the players flip a card. The first one to mentally add/subtract the cards wins the cards. When one player has the whole deck of cards they win. To create a challenge, each player can flip 2 cards to create a double digit number. Then you can either use mental strategies, or a pen and paper to add or subtract.
    • Greater/Less Than Flash: Using a deck of cards, flip over a card on the count of three, and players call out if their card is greater or less than the other player. Winner keeps the cards.
  • Problem-Solving: Make up oral word problems and have the students solve them (i.e. There were 15 frogs sitting on lily pads in a pond, then 5 frogs went swimming. How many frogs were left sitting on the lily pads?) As a challenge, they can create word problems for you to solve.
