"Finding the One!" Go on a rock, leaf or stick hunt in your yard. Collect some of these objects. Think of different ways you could sort your objects. For example, first you might sort them by size, then you might sort them by color or texture. Can you think of any other ways to sort your finds? Now choose your favorite object! Draw a picture of your favorite object and label the picture with words that describe your object (rock-gray, smooth, rough, little, etc.). Then write a good sentence about your rock. For example, "My rock is gray and smooth." Check your sentence to make sure it begins with a capital letter, has spaces between the words, ends with a period and makes sense. Send me a picture of this!

Task 3 (Writing):
We will make a writing notebook. You can use a spiral notebook, a journal, loose paper stapled together basically anything your families have available on hand. It is so important that we continue writing daily just as we would each morning at school. Kinders, you know the drill...date at the top, write to the prompt, illustrate and color a picture to match what your wrote about. You should write daily, however I will provide 3 journal prompts. I will need 1 scanned or emailed to me weekly. I am specifically looking for the date, multiple sentences about the prompt that are in students handwriting, use of caps and puncuation and an illustration to match. Parents- give feedback and guidance after they have completed their writing, help them to sound out words but don't just tell them. Have them read what they wrote to you. Praise, Praise, Praise them and this will hopefully help combat fustration and tears. Writing is hard, but it is essential :)
Prompt 1- Write about what you can do when your bored? Atleast, 2 things or you can make a list.
Prompt 2- Write about a book you have read this week. (favorite part, was it sad, funny or educational, favorite character, where was the setting of the book, etc.)
Prompt 3- Tell me what you had for dinner last night? Did you like it? Was it your first time trying this food? Did you help prepare the dinner?
“Quadrilateral” is not a word kindergarteners need to know, but if they can identify that a quadrilateral is a square or rectangle, that is supporting future math vocabulary.
