Summer lesson plan : Day 5- Sink or Float (all subject areas)
Before I share today’s lesson, I just want to remind you to read to your child. Try to do 20 minutes of reading every day, at least. Read to them and let them read to you.
Ok- moving on to some easy lessons for you to do, at home, with your kids…
WORD MATCH: use your sight words again and play memory. You will need to just write down about 8 of your sight words onto another piece of paper & cut them out just to play this game. This should take you about two minutes. When you are finished, play Memory using these sight words. (about 8 words will be plenty).
For older kids: increase the number or words
For younger kids: Use letters or shapes
Science: For our science lesson, we will be seeing if things float or sink.
Fill the tub with water. Now ask your children to bring you some toys (5 toys each).
Put them into two piles: “I think these will float.” & “I think these will sink”
Math: make a graph of the things that float vs. sink and see which is higher. See which one has more when you have tested all of the toys.
Art: Make an octopus. Here are the directions:
Take a paper plate and have your child make an octopus face on it.
Now take another sheet of paper, cut out 8 strips and use these for the legs.
Glue, staple or tape them on (well, have your child do it).
AGAIN- REMEMBER THAT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT! DO NOT DO IT FOR THEM! Part of the lesson is using their fine motor skills to cut and glue.
One, two, three, four, five –
Once I caught a fish alive.
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten –
Then I let it go again.
Why did I let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
The little finger on the right
I hope you enjoyed that! Easy, quick, fun lessons that your child will love (& learn a lot from it!)
