- I look forward to seeing your child on Friday at 10:00 in a Zoom meeting. If you did not receive an email regarding this please let me know.
- I will let you know as soon as I know the plans going forward. Stay tuned!
I hope you are all healthy. Some of the kids wanted to do work during the time off. I gave them suggestions (most are listed below). A few students wanted to do some research on a topic. I told them that would be great and they could share what they did when they return to school. I just wanted to let you know that I did not assign anything.
Please tell your children they can send me messages through Google Classroom if they have questions.
Here is a copy of the suggestions
Here are some ideas of optional activities if your child is looking for something to do:
Read a book either independently or as a family.
Practice math facts (you can even make it into a game)
Play different board games that involve strategy or skills.
Write creative stories, persuasive essays or informational text either on paper in Google Docs or on Book Creator.
Students have logins to MobyMax.com. It has lessons and tasks in each subject area. In math there are lessons for skills each child needs to work on based off of a pretest they took. In reading, language, and social studies there are some assignments I assigned. If you have any trouble logging in, please let me know.
Scholastic is offering free lessons online at: https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome.html
The students love mystery science and they are offering some free activities during this time at:
Some other websites we have used in class are:
Book Creator (not all students know how to do this but it is easy to learn)
Google Classroom (they have an account)/You will see assignments linked to ReadWorks. There are also lots of great stories and interesting information on this site.
Epic (free audio books--great because libraries are closed!)
Kahoot (Jeopardy-like quiz games on all subjects. Also a big hit in class.)
Khan Academy (video tutorials)
Stemscopes (our science curriculum--they already have a log in)
Tynker (coding--another a big hit)
Again, at this point in time these are all optional activities if you are looking for suggestions. No assignments are required. Please don’t hesitate to email me with questions.
