    Candy Letter Match

    Write pairs of letters on sticker dots and place them on the bottom of several Hershey’s Kisses. Put out about 5-10 pairs of letters at a time. Children take turns lifting two Kisses at a time. If the letters match, they keep those Kisses. If they do not match, they have to put them back. At the end of the game, all of the Kisses are put in the middle of the table, and children can choose about 3 pieces to eat. Use this game to practice matching uppercase to uppercase letters, lowercase to lowercase, or uppercase to lowercase, depending on what you are working on.

MATH ACTIVITIES

  • target What am I supposed to learn today?

    I can use number and shape words and determine how many sides a shape has.

    why Why am I learning this?

    Knowing properties of shapes and how many sides they have will help me to learn other signs and symbols in other curriculum areas such as reading, math and science. 

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

    Look at a shape and determine how many sides it has.

    success I will know I have learned to determine how many sides a shape has when:  I see a shape and correctly identify (count) how many sides it has. 

  • Math Lesson: Shape-Counting Jump

    1. Gather pictures or objects that are shapes (rhombus (diamond), trapezoid, hexagon, and triangle). 

    2. Remind your child that they have played this game before. Tell them they will do some quick jumping, but you will not show them a number or fingers to determine how many times they will jump. Instead, you will show them a shape, and they must see how many sides the shape has and jump that number of times.

    3. Show the rhombus. Observe as your child jumps. Ask, "How did you know how many jumps to do?"

    4. Show each shape in turn and observe if your child is able to subitize or count the sides quickly and jump that many times.
