Night Activities

This week the homework will center on night activities. The activities are appropriate for K-3, except as noted. Feel free to copy, cut and paste the assignments into your own word processor for sending home (or print this page).

Day 1

Have the children keep a journal of their activities every half hour from 5:00pm until bedtime. Click here for a sample form. Use the information tomorrow for graphing, grouping, etc.

Day 2

Nighttime can be a happy time or a scary time. Have the children write (dictate) three goods things that happen at night. Choose one to illustrate as their favorite. Place in a class book.

Day 3

Flashlights are used at night to help us find our way in the dark. List 10 other things we use to help us find our way in the dark.

Day 4

Next Sunday is Halloween. If your children go Trick-or-treating, have the K-2 children make a list of candy they received for each of the colors: red, blue, green, brown, purple, yellow, orange. For the third graders, have them make an ABC list of the candy they received. Bring both lists to school tomorrow. A sample form for K-2 is here. A sample form for third grade is here.
