BELOW ARE THE DAILY LESSONS FOR THE THIRD WEEK

Your schedule is below. Prepare your time wisely.

If you REALLY want your student to learn, you'll make time to follow through on a daily basis!

Schedule B

Time: One half hour to Two hours per session each day depending on your student's ability to focus EXCEPT on Sunday when you may decide to modify the schedule because of the day's activities.

Sessions: As many as it takes to cover the material. Each project (songs, games, other activities) should take a minimum of twenty minutes to accomplish

Rewards: Should not be necessary on this schedule but if it becomes necessary rewards should follow the sessions and be given only if the student assumed proper responsibility in his or her assignments


Monday: Tell the stories for G, g, H, h, I and i. You will find the games listed on the menu table for the fourth lessons. Play the games (one or two different games a day). You will find the Mulberry Bush song and the Hokey Pokey ( Dance To The Alphabet Song ) listed on the song table. Sing both songs. Review the Alphabet with flash cards. Mix up the cards.

VERBAL EXERCISES Have your student say the Alphabet from A to Z. Then ask your student to say the Alphabet backwards. Make sure you prepare the Alphabet backwards on paper ahead of time so you know if he or she is correct. Ask your student to say the Alphabet beginning with A and skipping every other letter. In other words, say A. Do not say B. Say C. Do not say D, etc. Ask your student to say the Alphabet backwards beginning with Z and skipping every other letter. In other words, say Z. Do not say Y. Say X. Do not say W, etc.

Your student should already know the Alphabet so get a telephone book and have him or her record various letters on a page within the listed names. Sort the letters by placing them under a proper heading where they belong. Do it like this. Take a paper. Turn it sideways and write the Alphabet A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z across the top. Then take the names from a page out of the phonebook and write the letters within each name under its proper heading. If the name is Mary Smith, then write (M) under the heading M. Write (a) under A. Write (r) under R. Write (y) under Y. Write (S) under S. Do this until the name is finished and has been written all across the page in its proper place. Let each new name begin on the line below. Take the next name and do the same thing but keep the names in order. You will end up with the names having letters spread across the page and each new name will be on a different line.

In as much as possible, your student should do this as an independent exercise once he or she understands what to do. Be sure to correct the finished paper. If the letter is uppercase, your student should write it that way. If the letter is lowercase, your student should likewise write it that way. Be sure to check the upper and lower case writing of each letter in this exercise too. YOU WILL NEED THIS SAME LESSON FOR YOUR ACTIVITIES ON WEDNESDAY OF THIS WEEK!

 

Tuesday: Play the games (one or two different games a day). Sing the Alphabet songs. You will find the links below. Review the Alphabet with flash cards. Mix up the cards.
