At Home Learning – Room 1

Monday, April 13th

Hello Room 1! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here are two more learning opportunities for you to try out today. Please remember that these are all just suggestions of activities for families that are looking for them. Don’t forget to send me pictures of you and your work so we can share them with the class! 

Make your own math story problem:

During our last Zoom meeting we did a GREAT job solving some story problems! We will continue to work on story problems on our Zoom meeting this Thursday. Can you write and solve your own story problem? See the examples below:

Example 1: Bella has 10 Skittles. She eats 3. How many does she have left?

Example 2: Zariel has 14 pencils. He finds 6 more on the floor. How many does he have in all?

Make sure you send me your story problems so the class can solve them together on Thursday during our Zoom meeting!

Pop Instructions:

This game is a fun and easy way to practice sight words (words they should know without having to sound them out) with your child. We have played this in class so your child may already be familiar with this game. It is a Room 1 favorite!


  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Bowl or other container
  • List of sight words (click here)


  • Write sight words on small pieces of paper, crumple them up, and put them in the bowl.
  • Write the word “pop” on several pieces of paper (about 5 depending on the size of your bowl), crumple them up, and put them in the bowl.
  • Once the bowl is full, mix up the paper and get ready to play!


  • The first player picks a piece of paper out of the bowl. If they can read the word, they get to keep it. If they cannot read it, it must be put back in the bowl. Then the next player goes. 
  • If a player chooses a piece of paper that says “pop” they must put all of their words back in the bowl. 
  • The player with the most words at the end wins.
