Hello Song


Read Aloud "The Pout Pout Fish"

Who did Pout Pout Fish meet first, next, then last? How did his friends help him to feel better? Did Pout Pout Fish change?

  • Target What am I supposed to learn today?

    I can identify the letters "Pp" and "Ff" and the say the sounds they make.

    why Why am I learning this?

    Identifying letter names and sounds will give me the skills I need to learn how to sound out words and learn to read.

    should At the end of this lesson I should be able to:

    Identify the letter names and sounds of the uppercase and lowercase "Pp" and "Ff."

    success I will know I have learned to identify the letter names and sounds when:    I see the letter "Pp" and the letter "Ff" and can correctly state their names and sounds.

  • Literacy Lesson: Review Letter "Pp" and Letter "Ff"

    1. Here are a couple of ways to review the name, sounds, and letter formations of the letters "Pp" and "Ff."

    ABC Cup Hunt

    ABC Cup Hunt {Playdough to Plato} 


    1. Get 5 or more paper cups and write a different letter of the alphabet on each one.

    2. Choose an object to hide under one of the cups (a simple toy, pom pom, etc. will work).

    3. Ask your child to close their eyes as you hide the object under one of the cups.

    4. Have your child open their eyes and say which letter and sound they think the object is under. Ask them to point to the cup that has that letter on it to make sure they are saying the correct letter name and sound.

    5. Continue playing until your child finds the hidden object, then repeat with a different letter.

Daily Phonics Lesson


  • target What am I supposed to learn today?

    I can use objects to count and add and subtract to determine "how many."

    why Why am I learning this?

    Counting and adding or subtracting groups will help me to learn simple addition and subtraction and I will be able to add or subtract numbers when I go to kindergarten.

    should At the end of this lesson I should be able to:

    Count two small groups of objects and then add them together or take some away to determine "how many."

    success I will know I have learned to count and add or subtract two small groups when:  I am given two small groups of objects and I correctly count and add or subtract them and correctly state "how many."

  • Math Lesson: Counting Fish

    1. Fill a small cup with fish crackers (or other small objects) and place it in front of your child. Gather a small plate for them to put their fish crackers on during the activity.

    2. Explain to your child that they are going to count and add fish crackers before eating them.

    3. Tell your child that you will announce a number, and they will make that total number of crackers by making two small groups of crackers in front of them. For example, call out the number five. Observe as your child removes crackers from their cup and uses various combinations to create a total of five crackers. When they are finished creating their combination have them ask, "Am I right?"

    4. After you verify that their two groups of crackers make the total number you named, your child can eat the crackers on their plate.

    5. Next, explain that they should start with three crackers on their plate. Tell a short story about these fish finding more fish to play with, and have your child add to the number of fish on their plate. "These three fish swam around and found three more fish to play with. How many fish crackers are in front of you? How many will you have if you eat two?"

    6. Repeat the process, adding and subtracting (eating) new numbers and encouraging your child to follow the story to show the total number of fish crackers as it changes. Continue for as long as time and interest allow or until your child has eaten all of their crackers.
