Print Fluency Practice Ideas

Kindergarteners- going into 1st Grade

Goals: Fluently add and subtract within 5, add and subtract within 10, count as many as 20 “items”, count to 100 by 1’s & 10’s

- Give the child anything to count: cheerios, Barbie shoes, lego’s,…; “show me 6 Skittles” “show me 9 cheerios”
- Roll a dice- child counts and then recognizes how many dots are showing on the dice
- Roll a dice- child counts the number and then lays out that many items
- War with cards: play with a partner- each person turns over a card- whoever has the greater number wins, tomorrow it might be whoever has the smaller number wins
- War with dice: roll a dice- larger number wins- or smaller wins. “5 is greater than 1” etc. More advanced students can roll 2 dice and add them- and play War with the sums.
- Dominos- practice counting the dots

Fluency Practice Ideas

1st Graders- going into 2nd Grade

Goals: Fluently add and subtract within 20, count to 120 (starting at any number)

- Roll a dice- child counts the number and then lays out that many items
- War with cards: play with a partner- each person turns over a card- whoever has the greater number wins, tomorrow it might be whoever has the smaller number wins
- War with dice: roll and add 2 dice- larger number wins- or smaller wins. “13 is greater than 9” etc. More advanced students roll 3 or more dice and add them- and play War with the sums.
- Dominos- practice adding the dots

- Roll a dice, add 10 to the roll (or whatever you wish to practice)
- Roll a dice, double whatever you roll
- Roll 2 dice- add the 2 together, or subtract the 2
- Play “Find another Name” ---Roll the dice and students give partners (or break aparts) to get that number i.e. I roll a 5, I give partners such as 3 + 2, my partner gives a different combination such as 4 +1. More advanced students could roll 2 dice and then give partners for the sum. (I roll 4 and 5: My sum is 9. I say 6 +3, my partner says 8 +1)
- Practice counting starting at random numbers under 100.
- The number is 10 (or 20, or 15) - Write down 10 different number sentences that equal the target number. Practice with picture representations. Do it with many different numbers. Encourage different solutions.
- Mystery number: Think of a number and describe it. I’m thinking of a number greater than- but less than, it’s odd, . . .

## P.E. from Mrs. Cascaddan## https://youtu.be/iW5YGRwc5AA
For a good warm up, try some of these fun workout videos on Youtube at Glenn Higgins Fitness https://www.youtube. I have attached a video that instructs second graders on striking a balloon with different items. I thought this would be fun for all grades. If you don’t have a balloon, you could use a beach ball or other very light ball. Follow along with the video for some different challenges. Work with your parents to come up with some items to use to substitute the PE equipment they use in the video and for ways you could adjust the games to play at home. Make sure you’re in an area that is safe to play in, where you won’t hit anything or break anything. Ask your parents to show you a good spot. https://www.youtube.com/watch? Remember to stay active and stay safe and healthy! I hope to see you soon! Mrs. Cascaddan |

Reminders for

Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten

Start the week after Kindergarten round up:

- Week 1 - Cut out the animal alphabet cards. Practice the names & sounds of each letter. Use the cards to spell your child’s name. What animals are in their name?
- Week 2 - Cut out the upper and lowercase cards. Practice the names & sounds of each letter. Practice putting the cards in ABC order.
- Week 3 – Adam’s activity. If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?
- Week 4 – Lenny’s activity. Play the Grab & Match game. You can also put labels on things around your house to help your child start reading.
- Week 5 – Raffi’s activity. Here’s a goal – see if you can read all (or most) of the books listed on Miss Bindergarten’s book list. Be sure to record them on your Superintendent’s Summer Reading list. Your child will be recognized for this achievement during September.
- Week 6 – Noah’s activity. Counting, counting, counting! Practicing counting with your child. Count items one-by-one and counting to 30 (at least).
- Week 7 – Gwen’s activity. Cut out the number cards and play the number games.
- Week 8 – Sara’s activity. Practice naming and drawing these 4 basic shapes: circle, triangle, square, and rectangle. Play “I spy” with these shapes EVERYWHERE (home, in the car, at the store, at the park).
- Week 9 – Tammy’s activity. Make a book of shapes. Each page can be a different shape.
- Week 10 – Christopher’s activity. Your child should know their basic colors and be able to find them in their environment. Red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, brown, black. If they know these already, add in pink, gray, and white. Make flashcards in those colors to help your child learn to read those words.
- Week 11 – Danny’s activity. Sorting mania – anything can be sorted! This is a great activity because it teaches kids to sort and classify. Be creative! Let them sort laundry, buttons, legos, cars – the sky is the limit!
- Week 12 – Patricia’s activity. Play pattern games with your child. Just like with shapes, have your child find patterns in their environment. They are all around us, if we look for them.
- Week 13 – Fran’s activity. Help your child learn to share and take turns. In a classroom full of kids, this skill will be put to good use!
- Week 14 – Miss Bindergarten (and the kindergarten teachers) encourage you to read nursery rhymes to your children this week. Can you believe that many kids coming into kindergarten don’t know what a nursery rhyme is? For extra practice, help your kids find the rhyming words in the nursery rhymes.
- Week 15 - Miss Bindergarten (and the kindergarten teachers) encourage you to sing songs with your children this week. Singing and learning go hand-in-hand in kindergarten! It’s a fun way to learn!
- Week 16 – Let’s work on the kindergarten skills checklist in the workbook. This week, help your child memorize important cell phone numbers they may need in an emergency. Knowing their address is another important skill.
- Week 17 - Have your child practice writing their name. They should be able to write their name correctly (the first letter is a capital, and the rest are lowercase letters).
- Week 18 – Teach your child how to hold a pair of scissors correctly (thumb goes in the small hole and all the rest of the fingers go in the larger hole). Give them lots of practice cutting so they feel successful in kindergarten. Old newpapers & junk mail are great for cutting practice!
- Week 19 – Self-help skills. Can your child put on and take off their own jacket? Can they tie their own shoes? Can they zip up their backpack? They will need to be self-sufficient in these ways in kindergarten.
- Week 20 – “All About Me”. Does your child know their first AND last name? Do they know their birthday? Do they know how old they are? Can they tell you how many people are in their family?
