Let’s review the letter Q today before moving on to Gg tomorrow. My Little Letter Book It’s your time to shine! Color the capital and lower case Qq any way you’d like. Write the letters and read the words “quilt” “quarter” and “quail” to an adult or sibling. Color the pictures. Try to use realistic coloring today! Look through the letter puzzle and highlight or color the Qqs. Can you think of a word that starts with q? Can you write and draw that word? Check out the class Instagram to see me reading my letter q book! Can you guess what q word I picked? 
I’ve posted a photo of our letter Qq flip chart! Can you help me find pictures that start with the letter q? What words in our poem start with q? Do you see any sight words? Leave a comment under the picture to tell me. 
Number Practice I created a mini number chart to make a video to share with you all! Check out the class Instagram page to watch and follow along. On your worksheet can you trace and write the number 19? Remember to start your numbers at the top. Big line down for 1 and little curve, up, and big line back down for 9. Can you create a pattern while you color the number word nineteen? What letter starts nineteen? What sound do you hear?Show the number 19 in the tens frame and color 19 circles. I put a tiny dot in each circle as I counted then went back and colored them. BONUS! Try and challenge yourself! Can you show 19 using tally marks? I bet you can! 
Me and Space Journal Yesterday, you watched and read books about the moon. I hope you are ready to start our space journal! I love teaching this in school but since we are unable to be in the classroom I have some resources that you can use!

Kite Weather Math JournalUse the dots on the journal to make 10 kites. Color 4 kites yellow. Find the 4 in the word problem and circle the number 4 and color the word ‘yellow’ yellow. The rest of the kites need to be colored blue. How many kites are blue? Write the number. BONUS: Can you create an addition sentence to match the journal? (4+6=10)
HelpersReader (Sight Words)Read through the book Helpers. I have upload a video on the class Instagram page (@mrsgodzichsclassroom) so you can read along.Using the Helpers worksheet trace the word help and at. Remember to start you letters at the top and use the top, middle, and bottom line to help you write a letter. You may use a marker, crayon, colored pencil or highlighters (like we do in class) to find and highlight the boxes with the words ‘help’ and ‘at’. BONUS: On the back of your sheet can you create a sentence using the sight words help and at?

I can’t wait to see!Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-V1aCjgzlg for our Sesame Street Podcast about the letter Q! Can you make the quack sound like the people in the video? How many words do you know that start with q? Did you practice writing the letter Q with Kermit and Grover? 
Weather Patterns Math JournalI was hoping for a sunny first day of Spring but it looks very cloudy this morning. In our math journal today we will create an ABB pattern with suns and clouds. Draw a sun, cloud, cloud, sun, cloud, cloud in your journal. Challenge! Can you create your own ABB pattern? 
Helpers ReaderOur sight words this week are “help” “at”. I will be posting a video later of a reading of helpers so you can read along with me! You will need a yellow and orange crayon.

Today we will start the letter Qq! Trace and Write Qq -talk with an adult or an older sibling about the shapes you see in upper and lower case Qq. -what sound does q make? make the sound! “qwuh” Q has a best friend… U!

How could I use a quarter today?-Color the quarter. As always, try to use realistic coloring but if you’d like to be creative and use different colors you may. Extension:  Check out the letter Qq with Jack Hartmann https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L987a64I2cY
Numbers PracticeLet’s start the number 18! Today we will be showing the number 18 five different ways! We don’t have our number chart like at school but you can teach a family member how we show our numbers! -Start by counting all the way to 18. What 18 items would you like to have? Today I’d love to have 18 gummy bears to eat! 🙂 -Trace and write the 18s on the worksheet. Will you try the snowman way or the fancy s way to make your 8s? -color the word ‘eighteen’. What colors will you use today? Will you make a pattern or will it be rainbow colors?-show 18 on the ten frames! Remember to put one dot/circle in each box until you get to 18-color 18 circles but be careful not to count too many! Put your dot in the circle while you count and go back to check! I bet everyone will be so impressed with your awesome math skills! 
I hope you had fun celebrating St. Patrick’s Day yesterday! I wore my Irish green sweatshirt and dressed Leela (my dog) in a green headband. We took a walk around our neighborhood. Leela liked saying hello to the kids in our neighborhood. Lucky Day-Take a look at the pictures on the bottom of the page. What is the boy doing in each picture? What time of day do you think is happening in each picture? Is it morning, afternoon, or at night? Color and cut out the pictures. Glue the picture in the shamrock that matches.  
ReadingHave a grown-up/sibling read with you today for 20 minutes! OR check out day 1 Rabbits on Scholastic Learn at Home https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome/grades-prek-k.html You can watch Morris’s Disappearing Bag by Rosemary Wells and read the books Rabbits by Hollie Endres. Watch the video Rabbit Roundup and try the movement activity “How Many Jumps” (Materials: masking or painter’s tape, measuring tape 

Rabbits aren’t the only animals that are great jumpers—kangaroos, frogs, and grasshoppers are too!

Go to an open space (or move furniture out of the way) and make “animal jumping stations.” Have your child help you use masking tape to mark a starting point and the distance that each animal can jump. Measure 5 feet for a grasshopper, 6 feet for a frog, and 15 feet for a kangaroo. 

At each jumping station, have your child count how many jumps it takes
to go the distance.)

I’ve included a normal homework packet as well so be sure to complete a page every night! 

That’s all for the day! Get ready for new sight words tomorrow! Have an awesome Wednesday and please be kind listeners for your families!
