Day 1*  (Englischanfänger beginnen bitte mit Getting Ready 1)

Wenn dein Kind Getting Ready 1 und 2 gemacht hat, sowie die McGuffey Bücher beide gelesen hat und schon gut englisch lesen kann, ist es fertig für das First Level. Das Verständnis der Sprache kommt mit der Zeit und ihrer Benutzung.Dein Kind wird dich beim Übersetzen  brauchen.

Willkommen zu deinem ersten Schultag! Ich wollte dir eine wichtige Erinnerung geben, bevor du anfängst. Viele deiner Lektionen haben einen Internetlink , auf den du klicken kannst. Wenn du auf die verschiedenen Internetseiten für deine Lektionen gehst, klicke bitte NICHT auf etwas anderes auf dieser Seite, außer auf das, was die Anweisungen dir dazu sagen. Klicke NICHT auf Werbung oder Spiele. Klicke NICHT auf irgendetwas, das dich zu einer anderen Website führt. Konzentriere dich einfach auf deine Lektion und schließe dann das Fenster und du solltest gleich wieder hier sein für die nächste Lektion. Okay?

Folgender Hinweis – Ich schreibe viele Anweisungen hier. Lies sie sorgfältig und folge ALLEN. Wenn du etwas nicht verstehst, bitte um Hilfe.

Ich wollte dir eine wichtige Erinnerung geben, bevor du das Jahr beginnst. Wenn du auf einen Link klickst und der Link nicht funktioniert, bitte überspringe ihn nicht einfach oder suche etwas ähnliches , sondern lasse deine Eltern wissen, was nicht funktioniert, damit wir das sofort beheben können für dich und für andere Benutzer.Selber lesen/Reading on Your Own (Parents: Liebe Eltern: Bitte lest unter number 2.)

  1. Lies  The Tale of Jolly Robin chapter 1.
  2. HINWEIS: Der Übergang zu Kapiteln kann schwierig sein. Dein Kind sollte in der Lage sein,  zu lesen, aber die Größe des Stoffes mag sich zu viel anfühlen. Wenn dein Kind das Kapitel nicht lesen will, lass es einen Satz vorlesen und lese du dann einen Satz vor. Wenn es sich bereit fühlt, lass es einen Absatz laut vorlesen. Dann könntest du die erste Hälfte der Geschichte lesen und dein Kind kann es beenden. Lese du dann immer weniger, bis du dein Kind alleine lesen lassen kannst. Es wäre gut für dein Kind, dir oder anderen Lesern für die Leseaufgaben vorzulesen, bis dein Kind fließend und kompetent Romane liest. Wenn du möchtest, dass dein Kind das Audio hört, es ist jeden Tag verlinkt.  Audio
  3. Wie sieht die römische Ziffer für die Nummer 1 aus? Wenn du dich nicht erinnern kannst, sehe dir  die Nummer am Anfang von Kapitel 1 an.
  4. Schreibe den Titel und den Autor des Buches in dein Lese-Notizbuch.

Auf dieser Jahr-Seite findest du auch Musik-, Kunstunterricht sowie KörperErziehung/Sport und Gesundheit, obwohl diese nur einmal in der Woche stattfinden. Um dorthin zu gelangen, klicke  auf einen der unten stehenden Links, was auch immer deine Familie entscheidet, dass du lernen sollst. Das erste Jahr wird dich zu Biologie und Geschichte führen.

Das vierte Jahr wird dich zu Physik, Chemie und moderner Geschichte führen.

Benutze über Kopieren und Einfügen den Google Übersetzer oder einen anderen deiner Wahl, und hilf deinem Kind,  wenn du es noch nicht verstehen kannst. Und benutze eine dieser Bibelübersetzungen für das Lesen auf deutsch. Oder benutze diesen Bibeltext. Füge die Bibelstelle über Kopieren und Einfügen in die Suchmaske ein.
  8. Die Antworten auf viele Fragen stehen in Klammern (die Antworten erscheinen, wenn du sie markierst), bitte schaue die Antworten erst nach, wenn du die Frage selber beantwortet hast.

Computer

  1. Schalte den Computer ein und aus. Mit Erlaubnis deiner Eltern schalte deinen Computer aus und wieder ein. Frage sie, wie du es richtig machen sollst. Du musst dem Computer „sagen“, dass er ausschalten soll, indem du auf die richtige Schaltfläche klickst. Drücke nicht einfach den Netzschalter. Wenn der Computer ausgeschaltet ist, leuchtet der Computer nicht und es dauert eine Weile, bis er wieder hochgefahren ist.
  2. Dein Computer kann auch „schlafen“. Wenn dein Computer schläft, kann ein bewegtes Bild auf dem Bildschirm erscheinen. Dies wird als Bildschirmschoner bezeichnet. Es schützt den Computerbildschirm, den Teil, auf dem du gerade liest, davor, sich zu verbrennen, indem immer das gleiche Bild erscheint. Wir können Laptops (Computer, die du auf deinem Schoß halten kannst) schlafen lassen, indem du den Deckel schließt. Normalerweise lassen wir unsere Computer tagsüber schlafen und schalten sie nachts aus. Finde heraus, was deine Familie macht.

Computer

Click, Double Click, Right Click   You probably already know what it means to click on something. You push the left button on your mouse. Sometimes there is something called a touchpad, and you just have to tap it to click. When you click on something, you are telling the computer you are choosing that thing.

To double click means to click two times very quickly. That tells the computer you want it to open something. We will practice clicking and double clicking in your next computer lesson.

Does your mouse have two clicking buttons? We usually use the one on the left. I hope you know your right from your left (if not, go practice that!) Sometimes we are told to right click on something. That means to click on the button on the right. This opens a menu for us. We use this often to save something.

Go ahead and right click on your desktop. Did a menu open?

Put two coins in your hand (if you really can’t find 2 coins, you can use something else) Now go and ask your mom (or someone else) to give you zero more coins. How many coins do you have in your hand now?

You just learned at 2 plus 0 more is still 2.  We say, “2 plus 0 equals 2.”  You can write it like this  2 + 0 = 2.

Do activity 1 again but this time put 5 coins in your hand. How many coins do you have in your hand after you ask for 0 (zero) more?

Here’s your problem for today.  2 + 3 = 5

Now I want you to look at your left hand. How many fingers are on it? 5, right? Now, hold three of your fingers together with your right hand. You have two fingers free and three fingers being held. That’s two plus three equals five. Now, hold onto just two fingers. You have three fingers free and two fingers being held. That’s three plus two. So what does  3 + 2 = ?  5!  You still have five fingers! It doesn’t matter which way you hold them. So, we learned that 2 + 3 = 5  AND  3 + 2 = 5

Day 27

Reading

Today you are going to read the beginning of The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin.

Writing

Now you are going to start to write the story yourself. First you need to write the main character, who the story is about. Write down a sentence about who the story is about. Don’t just write his name. Write something about him. (If writing is hard for you, you can type or ask a grown up or big sibling to help with the writing.) Now write about another important character in the story.

Math

Get out six coins (or you could use something else).

Put them all together in a pile. That’s 6 + 0. Six coins plus no more coins.

Move one coin off all by itself. That’s 5 coins plus 1 coin. You still have six coins, right? 5 + 1 = 6. And, if you look at it the other way it’s 1 + 5 = 6.

Now move another coin to be with the one coin. Now you have a pile of 4 coins and a pile of 2 coins. That’s 4 + 2 = 6.

Move one more coin so they both have three coins. That’s 3 + 3 = 6.

Do you see how there is always the same number of coins? The answer is always 6. But there are lots of ways to get that answer because you can move the coins into different combinations.

Now here’s your math problem to learn today. I want you to remember that 2 + 4 = 6. That means that 4 + 2 = 6 too! 2 + 4 = 6 and 4 + 2 = 6  Say it out loud, “Two plus four equals six. Four plus two equals six.”

Do you remember what else equals 6? 3 + 3!

Add it to your facts list.

Let’s practice. Change the first ten to a 2. Change the second ten to a 4. Do ten problems.

When you want to find something on the internet, you have to be careful how you look for it. Here are some tips. Be as specific as possible in your search. Type as many words as you know that will help you find what you are looking for. That will help keep things you are not looking for from coming up.

Also, use kid friendly search engines. I suggest still turning on Google safe search. You can turn on Youtube’s safety switch at the bottom of any Youtube page. You can also turn off advertising, so you don’t see bad images.)

Grammar

Finish your worksheet. Choose which punctuation goes at the end of the sentence. Is it a question? Use a ? question mark. If it is exclaimed with excitement!, then use an exclamation point!

Computer

Internet security — There are different tools that are used for security on the internet.

One is passwords. A password is a secret word that you use to let the computer or website know that you are you. The best passwords have letters and numbers in them. I use a really good password for important websites (that you don’t use–like for my bank information) but I use a silly password for websites where it is not important, like to play a game. Use only one or two passwords or you’ll forget which password you used where! So many places ask for passwords now. Choose passwords that are at least 6 letters/numbers long. Sometimes 8 is required.

Another tool is software that protects your computer from viruses and adware. A computer virus is a command that sneaks into your computer and tells it to do something you don’t want it to do, like erase everything on your computer! Adware sneaks advertisers info onto your computer. You probably have anti-virus software on your computer. A free program is called Avast.

Your computer should block ads that are called “pop ups.” Sometimes you’ll see a note that says a “pop up” was prevented from opening. This was a website trying to force their advertisement on you. Sometimes worse. Most of the time you don’t want to see the pop up that was blocked, but sometimes you need that pop up for whatever you are doing. If you want to see the pop up that was blocked, go and ask a parent if it is okay.

Vocabulary: Here are some words to learn about using the internet.

Browser: a browser is what you use to open up websites. You are using a browser right now. There are several different kinds. If it says, “Firefox” in the top left corner of the screen, you are using Firefox. If you clicked on a big e to open a webpage, you are using Internet Explorer. Google Chrome is another. They each are different, but they all serve the same purpose. You could sit in a library to look through books and the library would have tools to help you find books. The browser is your library for the internet, where you hang out to look at webpages.

Back: Your browser has a back button, probably an arrow pointing left. If you click on that, it will take you to the last page you were on. Click on it and THEN click on the right arrow, this takes you forward, hopefully back to this page!

Refresh: This is another arrow button on your browser. It is an arrow in a circle. It reopens the page you are on. This is useful if something didn’t show up or show up right on the webpage. Sometimes it’s good just to try again. Try it now.

Scroll: You scroll down a webpage by clicking on the rectangle button all the way on the right of your screen and dragging it down. You can also click on the down arrow at the bottom right of your screen. You, of course, can also scroll back up. Try it now. Move up and down the screen.

Read this short story. “Old Mr. Chicken was standing by the side of the road. He heard what sounded like a BIG TRUCK coming. He decided to cross the road anyway. Unfortunately, he never made it to the other side. Poor Old Mr. Chicken.

What do you think happened to Mr. Chicken? Why? Did the author say that happened?

You made an inference. Sometimes it’s called reading between the lines. The author told you what was going to happen without really telling you.

When a page is loading, it is working on opening. Be patient. Don’t click on anything. Wait. Wait until it is all the way open. There is usually something to show you that something is loading so you can know that your computer is doing something. Sometimes there is something that says loading and counts up to 100% which is when it all down loading. Click on the back button and watch in the corner for a circle spinning or moving in some way. That is letting you know that the page is loading. If you don’t wait for it to load and click on something, it will make it slower. It might make it crash.

When your computer crashes, it stops working. Sometimes it’s because it’s trying to do too much at once. Sometimes it’s because there is a problem. Follow the directions on your screen if they come up. Usually you can just start again and it will work.

Download when you download something, you save it onto your computer. Do not download anything without your parents’ permission. Sometimes things like movie or game downloads have viruses on them and you would be saving a virus on your computer. In your school you will download pdf files. These are worksheets for you. These are safe for you to download.

Another was half-eaten. “Oh well,” I thought, “I guess she wasn’t that hungry.”

Write (or tell) a story that makes the reader (or listener) make an inference.

Think of something that could happen–like you run out of milk and don’t have any for your cereal. When you tell the story, you skip telling that you run out of milk. Instead you could say that you looked in the refrigerator and made a face and said, “Oh well.” Then you sat down and crunched through your bowl of cereal, eating with your fingers.

Now, you think of something that could happen and tell it without telling it! See if you can get the person to guess what happened.

Fractions are part of a whole number. You already know more about fractions than you think.

When you break a candy bar in half in order to share it with someone, that’s a fraction. You each have one half. We write that as a one over a two with a line in between. We type it like this  1/2.

If you have a small pizza, it is cut into four slices. If there are four people, you each take one of the four slices. We write 1/4. That just means one of the four. That’s how you write it in math language. We say “one fourth.”

Go through the fraction lesson and then make pizza to order as best you can.

Get out a handful of coins.

Sort them into groups: all pennies into one group, all quarters into one group (or whatever currency you are using)

Line them up into rows.   (These are not American coins.)

Now count up how many are in each group and write it down. For example: write “penny” or draw a penny and write “4” if you have four pennies. Do that for each row, for each type of coin.

Now take the paper over to where you have Legos or some kind of block.

Make a tower for each type of coin. Get red Legos and if you have 4 pennies then build a tower with 4 red Legos.

Do that for each coin. Use a different colored Lego for each tower.

Here’s another example. If you have 6 nickels, then take 6 blue Legos and build a tower.

When you have all of our towers, line them up next to each other. This is a bar graph.

If you had four blocks in a tower, then you will make your picture go up to four in that color.)

  Your graph will look different because you had different amounts of coins. Make it look like your lego graph.

When you are finished making your towers, explain to someone what each tower means. For example, you will show them your tower with four blocks and tell them that means you had 4 pennies. Tell them it is a bar graph.

Math

When we subtract, we take away from what we already have. If you have 5 and take 0 away, you still have 5. If you have 5 and take 1 away, you have four. That’s 5 minus 1 equals 4.   5 – 1  = 4  Subtraction is the opposite of addition. If you have four and add back on one, then you have five.  These facts are all relatives:  1 + 4 = 5 ,  4 + 1 = 5 ,  5 – 1 = 4, 5 – 4 = 1   Whenever you see a subtraction problem with the two numbers right next to each other on the number line (like 5 and 4  or  6 and 7  or  8 and 9) then the answer will be one. If you have nine candies and I take eight, then you will only have one left. If I take all nine away, you will have zero.

Play feed the frog. This game has missing numbers. It might ask  4 + __ = 5   In this game you will have to think, “What plus 4 equals 5?” The answer is 1.   1 + 4 = 5   This is practice for subtraction.

If you don’t want to use Java or to download it, you can use this activity. It won’t tell you what fraction you made. Have someone sit with you. Choose a number under “Fraction Bars” and then drag it onto the workmat. Then color in some of the pieces. That’s the top number of the fraction. The bottom number is the total number of pieces the bar is divided into. If you are with someone, ask them to write a fraction, and then you can try to build it.

Alphabetical Order

Put the words in alphabetical order. Click on Medium. Look at the first letter of each word.  Ball comes before couch because b comes before c.    Shoe comes before turtle because s comes before t.

Put the right pronouns in the sentences. A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun. I could say, “Sarah gave the book to John.” Or, I could say, “She gave it to him.” You know all about pronouns. You use them every day. I said “she” instead of Sarah. I said “it” instead of the book. I said “him” instead of John. I think it will be easy for you to pick the right pronouns. Just read the sentence out loud and choose the pronoun that sounds right.

Math*

*Let’s fill in some fact families. Fact Families – Day 131

In one triangle of circles, write 5 in the “whole” circle. In the bottom two circles write 2 and 3. Now explain how they are a family. 2 and 3 are two parts of the whole. If you put them together, they make the whole. 2 + 3 = 5 and 3 + 2 = 5. If you start with the whole, and take away one of the parts, you have the other part leftover. 5 – 2 = 3 and 5 – 3 = 2.

Now do the same thing with another triangle of circles. This time fill it in for the 2, 4, 6 family. Explain how they are a fact family.

Today in your spelling practice all of the words end in a Y. When there is a vowel before the Y, like in all of the words you wrote out today, then you just add an S to make it plural.

Here’s the trick though! If there is not a vowel before the Y, if the letter before it is a consonant, then you change the Y to an I and ADD ES.
