TK/Kinder Distance Learning Packet: SPRING - CHICK Theme - Week 10! (AND A 15% OFF SALE!)

Here's my Spring Week 10 Distance Learning packet for TK or Kindergarten! My packet this week has a CHICK theme!!  In this file, you will find all of the work for one week of school for TK, with some worksheets that will work for Kindergarten, for both Math and Language Arts subjects. We've included a variety of worksheets and activities, so feel free to use any or all of it with your students! 



My first week of hybrid instruction is now under my belt! I’m supposed to be teaching virtual and in-person simultaneously. I won’t lie- the first day was a complete disaster, and the second day was not as bad but still a dumpster fire. BUT then things started to improve after Wednesday.  It was a tough week, but so wonderful to have some of my babies in the room with me! And let me tell you, AGAIN because I know I've said it before - these packets are a LIFE SAVER in trying to maintain my sanity! So, again, whether you're also doing hybrid teaching, all online teaching, or all in-person teaching, I hope you find these packets helpful as well!

This week focuses on: Reviewing Letters A-Z, lowercase, Reviewing Numbers 0-20, Letter fluency practice for letters W, X, Y, Z mix capital & lowercase, Hatching Chick Alphabet Writing A-Z, lowercase*, Number Fluency Chart: 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, Trapezoid/Rectangle fluency chart, Sentence Writing practice, Crazy Chick Number Writing*, Rhymes Chicks worksheet*, Finger Counting Addition & Workmat, Concepts of Print: Read & Count the Words worksheet, What Goes Together? Chick themed Classification worksheet*, Chicken & the Egg patterns




Hands on activities include: How a Chick Grows sequencing craft, Chick Craft, Hen Craft, Rooster - crayon resist with watercolor, Add the Room Chicks activity*, Fishing for Sight Words, Hatching Chicks Addition craft

*Note: This packet contains a few worksheets and activities from our Distance Learning TK/Kinder: Chicks packet, which was created in Spring 2020 when COVID-19 and distance learning first happened. The pages from this worksheet are indicated by the * in the list above.



In my experiences, children in TK generally need much more time to learn, and even more developmentally appropriate, hands-on activities than are necessary for most children in Kindergarten. A list of recommended HeidiSongs music videos for the week is also included, and it links to our HeidiSongs internet video site. However, a subscription to our internet video streaming site is not included. You are welcome to eliminate this page as needed.



We've divided everything up by day of the week, (Monday-Friday) so you have the option of sending this entire packet to students, with everything labeled out on what to do each day! Permission is granted to distribute to families/students in your classroom. We've also included an editable Weekly Lesson Plan page, for those who may want to only include bits and pieces from our packet, or add in worksheets of their own. Each item in this packet is the very similar to the ones I would have done in the classroom. In fact, I am just using my lesson plans from both TK and K to create it!



You may notice that there are lots of hands-on activities for math included. However, on each of these “worksheets,” (which are more like parent handouts), I have stated on it that it is fine to substitute another type of toy or manipulative, such as Lego bricks, etc.



Again, many have asked, so I wrote a blog all about my daily virtual schedule! I talk about the schedule I try and keep to most days, along with any other resources I use, where to get them, and how I use a variety of tools to help support my teaching and my students learning as much as possible! Some of the most valuable resources I use daily is our Letter of the Week via Google Slides and Number of the Day via Google Slides.
