Reading:  This year we have worked on making connections, main idea of a nonfiction story, nonfiction text features (caption, illustration, heading, and charts), asking and answering questions, making predictions, self-correcting when reading, story elements, making inferences, retelling (orally or by drawing pictures).
   *Questions to ask - Who are the characters and what do you know about them?  What is the setting?  When did the story take place?  How are the characters feeling?  Do their feelings change throughout the story?  What does the character learn?  The character did/said this so they must feel...?  What happened at the beginning, middle, and end of the story.

Writing:  You can have your child start a journal.  We were working on researching animals, people, etc before school let out.  PebbleGo has a lot of information on Science and Social Studies topics.  Our students loved finding new information about different topics.  Then, they created posters with their new found information.  They can create their own story about dragons, princesses, pirates, wizards, ninjas, unicorns, etc.  

Math:  One of the most important things to practice in Math is their facts.  In first grade we only expect them to be able to add up to 18 or subtract from 18 (9+9 =18, 18-7=11).  We have worked on making ten (7+3=10, 2+8=10, etc) and doubles (7+7=14, 2+2=4) to help with fluency.  We have also discussed coins (penny, nickel, dime, and quarter), missing addends (3+___=5), skip counting (by 2's, 5's, and 10's), telling time to the hour and half hour, and using a calendar. 

Suggested Schedule
If you are searching for a way to keep the kiddos in a routine to make the transition back to school easier, I have provided a schedule you could use and edit if needed.
