I started creating these “At Home Learning” bundles about a year ago now. They are set up with a parent letter and activities in a PDF format so they were easily sent home. I also preloaded the activities into Seesaw so teachers could quickly assign daily tasks with just 1 click. Plus, a PowerPoint with moveable pieces  is included for the classrooms that do not use Seesaw. With distance learning becoming so common and at the request of teachers, I continued creating these units. Plus, these units are great for in-class use, too!

The book, Grumpy Monkey was one of the latest additions to the home study bundles. Grumpy Monkey is such a fun read aloud in kindergarten and first grade! Plus, I think all students (and teachers… who am I kidding) can absolutely relate to Jim Panzee in this story. Some days are just rough! Check out the story on YouTube here:

Grumpy Monkey Book Activities : Written Response

For this unit, there are 3 writing activities where students have the opportunity to  respond to literature by drawing a picture and constructing a written response. Students practice making connections, using their inferring skills, and expressing their opinion throughout these lessons.

In another lesson, students practice developing their reading comprehension by identifying animals that were in the story versus animals that were not in the story.
