____________________________________________________________________

THIS ACTIVITY PACK INCLUDES

April Songs

Use these welcome, months, days of the week, weather and focus songs during April Calendar time. Print two to a page or project on a screen.

April Focus

Post the focus letters (Oo, Uu, Cc, Gg), numbers (15-16), color (black), shape (oval) and sight words (what, all, were, we) to introduce and review during the month of April.

April Calendar

Includes a March title, editable year, and date cards with an ABBC pattern. Yesterday, today, tomorrow, holiday, birthday and special day inserts are also included.

April Workpages

Print and laminate these pages. Have learners trace the dates on the April calendar, complete the All About Today page daily and review the Calendar Focus page.

Counting to 90

Practice counting to 90. Cut, tape or glue and laminate as a single strip. Look for patterns in the number line.

Encoding Strips

Print, cut and laminate the CVC encoding strips and letter cards. Use a pocket chart or magnetic tape (for a white board) to teach this skill whole group. work together to count the sounds in each word and then match the letter for each sound.

 


LEARNING STANDARDS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE

Common Core

CCSSL.K.1a
Print many upper- and lowercase letters.
CCSSL.K.2c
Write a letter or letters for most consonant and short-vowel sounds (phonemes).
CCSSRF.K.1d
Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
CCSSRF.K.2d
Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words. (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
Math
CCSSK.CC.A.1
Count to 100 by ones and by tens
CCSSK.CC.B.4
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
CCSSK.G.A.2
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size

Next Generation Science Standards

NGSSK-ESS3-2
Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather. Emphasis is on local forms of severe weather.
NGSSK-ESS2-1
Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time. Examples of qualitative observations could include descriptions of the weather (such as sunny, cloudy, rainy, and warm); examples of quantitative observations could include numbers of sunny, windy, and rainy days in a month. Examples of patterns could include that it is usually cooler in the morning than in the afternoon and the number of sunny days versus cloudy days in different months. Assessment of quantitative observations limited to whole numbers and relative measures such as warmer/cooler.

Texas Essential of Knowledge and Skills

TEKSLA.K.1.D
Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, discussion, and thinking–oral language. The student develops oral language through listening, speaking, and discussion. The student is expected to: work collaboratively with others by following agreed-upon rules for discussion, including taking turns.
TEKSLA.K.2.A.ii
Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking–beginning reading and writing. The student develops word structure knowledge through phonological awareness, print concepts, phonics, and morphology to communicate, decode, and spell. The student is expected to: demonstrate phonological awareness by: recognizing spoken alliteration or groups of words that begin with the same spoken onset or initial sound.
TEKSLA.K.2.B.iv
Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking–beginning reading and writing. The student develops word structure knowledge through phonological awareness, print concepts, phonics, and morphology to communicate, decode, and spell. The student is expected to: demonstrate and apply phonetic knowledge by: identifying and reading at least 25 high-frequency words from a research-based list.
TEKSLA.K.2.D.v
Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking–beginning reading and writing. The student develops word structure knowledge through phonological awareness, print concepts, phonics, and morphology to communicate, decode, and spell. The student is expected to: demonstrate print awareness by: identifying all uppercase and lowercase letters.
TEKSLA.K.3.C
Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking–vocabulary. The student uses newly acquired vocabulary expressively. The student is expected to: identify and use words that name actions; directions; positions; sequences; categories such as colors, shapes, and textures; and locations.
Math
TEKSMA.K.1.A
Mathematical process standards. The student uses mathematical processes to acquire and demonstrate mathematical understanding. The student is expected to: apply mathematics to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace
TEKSMA.K.1.F
Mathematical process standards. The student uses mathematical processes to acquire and demonstrate mathematical understanding. The student is expected to: analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas.
TEKSMA.K.5.A
Algebraic reasoning. The student applies mathematical process standards to identify the pattern in the number word list. The student is expected to: recite numbers up to at least 100 by ones and tens beginning with any given number.
TEKSMA.K.6.A
Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional solids to develop generalizations about their properties. The student is expected to: identify two-dimensional shapes, including circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares as special rectangles.

Science

TEKSSCI.K.8.A
Earth and space. The student knows that there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among objects in the sky. The student is expected to: observe and describe weather changes from day to day and over seasons.
TEKSSCI.K.8.B
Earth and space. The student knows that there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among objects in the sky. The student is expected to: identify events that have repeating patterns, including seasons of the year and day and night.
