Math Lesson Plan
Phonemic Awareness & Phonics Practice
We practice phonemic awareness on a daily basis using the Heggerty program. We have linked sample lessons for you to try at home. Here is a Parent's Guide to our Heggerty Phonemic Awareness Program.
Here is an assessment you can use to determine phonemic awareness skills your child may need to practice while learning from home:
We recommend that all children engage in phonemic awareness activities each week. You can get your whole family involved by turning the activities into family games like phonemic awareness charades (with sound), Blurt, Guess My Word (Much like Guess Who), and more.
We study phonics as a daily basis using the Jolly Phonics program. Students apply their phonics skills in their reading, writing and spelling.
Here are some Jolly Phonics letter sounds resources:
Fine Motor Skills
Handwriting practice is recommended for children that are not consistently using the lines of their paper or for children who are forming letters incorrectly. Additionally, some children need to work on proper pencil grasp. Many times, children will drastically improve their handwriting with the cue to SLOW down.

Monitor your child’s success when completing art projects and support when needed. Some students need support learning how to fold (matching up corner to fold in half), glue (using an appropriate amount in the correct locations) and use scissors (holding them correctly and staying on/near the lines). Create art projects that incorporate folding, cutting and gluing. Building with play-dough, legos, etc. helps to develop fine motor skills (strength and dexterity).

Additionally, numbers in problems can be changed to make the problem more or less challenging depending on the needs of your child. Complete one lesson a day from your math book. It is perfectly acceptable for you to decrease the number of problems your child is completing so that he/she is spending about 15 minutes on workbook pages.
Consider Logging into or signing up for some of these math programs:
