DOWNLOAD AND PRINT:
*If a child struggles with writing independently, use a yellow marker or highlighter to write the number on the appropriate line. Have your child write over your number.

This week, let's learn an important phone number!
TALK about which phone number we're learning. Is it mom's or dad's? Maybe it's the number for a grandparent or a neighbor? Focus on just one phone number.
WRITE the phone number down on a flashcard.
PRINT this phone page.
PRACTICE finding the numbers in order and tapping each number on the phone page.
After practicing on paper, give a real phone a try!
Practice reading and identifying each word below.
PRINT lined paper for written work.
Write the words on index cards and spread them out. Ask your child to identify each card by name. Ex. "Cat." Touch "cat."
Go over and review the index cards from previous weeks.
Modification: students who have a difficult time with writing, write words out on index cards and cut the letters into strips. Scramble up the letters and ask your child to spell the given word.
Modification: have an index card with the word written out to use as a model.
Modification: hand-over-hand to assist with spelling, or have your child place the letter strip over the letter on the written model.
For students who can write, practice writing and tracing these words each day this week.

I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont
First, listen to the story.
Next, talk about why you like yourself. What do you like about your hair and your eyes? What else do you like about yourself?
Last, make a flip book showing all of your favorite outfits!
Print 4 pages of the Flip Book Template. Staple them together on the left side to make a book. Draw and color new outfits on each page. Don't forget to draw a face and hair! Cut the pages along the dotted lines. Now you have a flip that is all about you!
That's it for this week!
