November Learning Record
Every 20 school days I have to have a learning record ready for my educational specialist from the charter school I'm working with. It only has to be a sentence or so long for each of the following subjects: reading, life skills, history, math, science, special interests/field trips/ classes but I have not done very well with being on time with it. If I blog about it I seem to do better. Here is the one from October.
I am putting a link to all the content standards for CA here for easy reference. I also found a nice link for all the kindergarten content standards.
So far my learning record for November looks like this but by no means does it even come close to all we've done. It is just all that I have typed up.
Reading: Determining the missing letter in a word and writing the letter. Short u, short i and short o practice.
Writing: I created my own leaf printout for Katie to practice. I really think she needs more practice tracing. Here is a great site with free printables of alphabet tracer pages. I think I'll slip them into a clear sleeve and use dry erase markers so we can use them over and over. You can print a blank practice sheet here and here or here. I also like this paragraph maker. You type in your own words and then print it out for your student to trace.
Life Skills: Lesson on germs
History/ Geography: (Read about the 7 continents in What Every Kindergartener Needs to know, directions on a map (north, south, east west))
Math: Adding 1's and 2's. I printed out this worksheet. Practice with tally marks. I like this website for extra first grade math practice.Here's another website with free math worksheets. Writing numbers 1-10. More practice with adding 0-3 using this free print out and this one. I'd like to make this domino addition matching game soon. (Friends of 10, beginning addition and subtraction exercises, telling time on the hour and half hour mark, counting by twos.)
Science: Autumn leaves
Special interests/ Field Trips/ Classes: Kung Fu Trial classes, Swimming classes
