You may have worked on Groups 1 and 2 before Easter. You can take 2 days to revise these groups again. If you need more time, don’t worry, just play variations of the games each day until you’re ready to move onto a new group. Do some, or all of the following activities. It can be a good idea to write the letters on a piece of paper or card and cut them out. Some of you may have a little bag of letters in your folders:
Group 1: s, a , t, i, p, n
Group 2: c, k (make the same sound), e, h, r, m, d
Monday and Tuesday: Groups 1 and 2 (Revision)
Wednesday and Thursday: Group 3: g, o, u, l, f ,b.( New Activity)
Dolch Sight Words (New Activity):
Dolch Words are lists of some of the most common words in the English language. You can visit the following link to play a quick memory game to help your daughter practice the first list of words:
https://www.dolchword.net and click on Dolch Word Pre-Primer Memory Game 1.
Too easy? Click on Memory Game 2 or 3 etc.
We will play these games for one more week and introduce some new ones next week.
If somebody in your house has time to play, play one of these quick games per day!
Monday: “Blast Off”- play in pairs, or threes/ fours etc. Decide which number will be your “Blast Off” number. Ex: 12. Start counting: Person A says 1, B says 2 etc. The person that says 12 gets to “Blast Off” and win the game. Change the Blast Off number to any number within 30/ 40/50. You can change the starting point too, you don’t always have to start at 1.
Tuesday: Number Tennis- Needs 2 players. Hold an imaginary bat in your hand. Player One “bats” a number towards player 2. Ex: Player no.1 says “18”. Player no. 2 says “19” and so on. You can change the number you start on. If you miss a number, you’re out!
Wednesday: What comes next (after)? What comes before? Round 1: Player A says a number and Player B says the number after that: Ex: A says 7, B says 8. You can have ten turns to be “on” (decide the starting number) before swapping. The game should be fast. Change it so that Player B must say the number that comes before. Ex: 7-6.
Thursday: Counting backwards. Start at any number between 10-50 and count backwards. Look at a number-line/ Hundred Square. Did you miss any numbers? What ones did you miss?
Friday: Guess my number. A game for 2 or more players. A number line or Hundred Square could be useful. One person chooses a number between 1 and 10/20/30, decide on the range before you begin. It’s a good idea for that person to write the number down but keep it hidden. The other player must guess the number by asking questions. Ex: Is your number bigger than 10? Is it smaller than 20? Is it between 15 and 20? You are not allowed to ask about the number directly (Ex: Is it 12? ) until you’ve asked at least 5 questions.
New Activity: “Need a Hand with Maths?”
If you go to Ms. Kelly:
