Check out the tabs for important information, announcements, and updates in our classroom.  The "What Are We Learning" tab will be updated weekly!​

Hi Parents,
I have created a tab called "Extended Learning" linked on the left side of this page.  This tab includes reading and math resources.  Each week while we're out, I will update this homepage with the page numbers I recommend your child doing.

I encourage you to set aside time each day for your child to focus on reading and math assignments.  This is to insure that students are still practicing their skills we have learned this far.

Current WEEK 3-

Week 3 MATH Suggested Assignments (3/30 - 4/3):

-Lesson 4 Understand Even and Odd Numbers file

-Lesson 5 add using arrays

*There will also be a “teachers addition” file that will be uploaded. Use this as an extra reference for yourself. There is also answers in this file.

Monday - Start with lesson 4 understand even and odd numbers. (Pg. 1-3) – making groups of 2. If everyone has a pair or partner then the total number is even. If there is an object left out then the total number is odd.

Tuesday – Lesson 4 (Pg. 5-6) We learned that when you look at a 2-digit number for example (15) if they cover the tens place or underline the ones place they focus just on the 5, we know that 5 is an odd number because we cannot make even groups. Since 5 is odd then that makes the number 15 odd. They can also think about we can create the number 15 by adding 10+5, they know that 10 will always be even so we only have to look at the 5.

Wednesday – Lesson 5 add using arrays (pg. 1-2) We have talked about how rows are side to side and columns go up and down! We use arrays to help us arrange objects or counters to make them easier to count. I showed them an example if we had 9 hats all spread out we would have to count each individual hat. If they were arranged into an array we could skip count 3 + 3 + 3 to get 9 a lot quicker.

Thursday – Lesson 5 add using arrays (pg. 3-6)

Friday – Lesson 5 add using arrays (pg. 7-8)


Week 3 READING Suggested Assignments (3/30 - 4/3):

-Lesson 16 – Parts of a Story: think back to when we learned about B, M, E. Each part of a story has a key part to it. In the beginning of the story we learn about the characters, setting, and if there is a problem. In the middle of the story the characters are either working towards solving the problem or the problem gets worse before it can get better. By the end of the story the characters have solved the problem and have figured out the solution of the story. We have also learned that many stories have lessons or morals that the characters experience.

Monday – complete pages 1-4 (Jasper the Farm Cat)

Tuesday – complete pages 5-8 (The Case of the Missing Mutt)

Wednesday – complete pages 9-12 (The Shade Seller)

Thursday – complete pages 13-14

Friday – Pick out your own book at home and fill out what happens in the B, M, E.


Week 3 SCIENCE Suggested Assignments (3/30 - 4/3):

Maker Station file- pick an activity to do. Then write a 5 sentence reflection on how the activity went. Your reflection can include: what materials did you use, what did you do in your experiment, was your prediction/hypothesis correct?


Spelling/Writing Suggested Assignments (3/30 - 4/3):

Practicing vowel teams- ee and ea

Start on pg. 4, they can cut and sort the words with the pictures. Then use pg. 5 for a little bingo game to see if they can spot the word when they hear it. Pg. 6 and 7 have little stories so that they can spot the words while they are reading. Continue using any of the worksheets attached in the file. I also added a “word work form” they can use for any of the words they are practicing.


Week 3 SPANISH (3/30 - 4/3):

Click on each video and see if you can remember the "backstory" to each video. If you remember, explain it to a family member and ask them to enjoy watching the video with you.

Week 1 Science: Go to Extended Learning tab and click on "science" folder.  We've been working on scientific method, so there are a couple activities they can choose from.

Spelling: Continue studying spelling words from last week.  Your child can use their word choice folder in their take home folder to practice their words.

Free resources to use during school closure:

Science--Here is the link to BrainPop-free access.  Within BrainPop, you can search science topics.  We are currently talking about scientific methods.
 (this is a google form that is compiling all of the free resources/websites giving free access during the school closures)  (parents can create a free login to access the science experiments) (Virtual Field Trips) (You can make your own spinner for any subject.  This can be used for writing topics your child can do at home.  All you have to do is edit it to what you want!)

Other Misc-

Words their Way is a literacy instruction tool that will help students learn different word patterns to help them not only sound out words but also spell different words with that same pattern. (For example, long vowels, short vowels or vowel teams). There are three different groups of students who will be working on different spelling lists throughout the week based on what they will need more help with thus far. At the beginning of the week I will send home their spelling list with a list of activities that they can work on throughout the week to help them recognize these spelling patterns more readily. Please recognize that even though they have spelling lists I do want them to focus on memorizing how to spell the words but more on what the spelling patterns are so that they can apply those patterns to different words with similar patterns.

This is also new to me so I will be learning alongside you and your child. They will have a small quiz each Friday on words with similar spelling patterns to see how much they have grown during the week. (These words will not be the same as their spelling lists but they will have the same spelling patterns that we worked on that week.)

It is very important for your child to be reading for 20 minutes a night with a book that is appropriate reading level.

We will have our class birthday celebration the last Friday in September which is the 27th. We will be celebrating our August and September birthdays on this date. If your child had a birthday in one of those two months you can feel free to bring in cupcakes, juice boxes, cookies, fruit, anything you would like just please let me know before hand. Also, if you could refrain from bringing anything with Peanuts in it for the class.  We will have the celebration at 1:30.

Every day starting Monday a paper will come home in their folder letting you know how many points they earned that day. On Friday we will add them all together to see how many they earned for the whole week. You will sign it every Friday. We have discussed certain rewards (dojo coupons) they can receive for every 25 points they earn. 

Ice cream this year will be different than in the past. Students will only be able to get ice-cream if there is money in their account, or they bring in the money, there will be no charging for ice cream this year. We will do ice-cream as a class on Thursday afternoons. This will be during our snack times so they will not need an additional snack on Thursdays. Again snack is not required, it is more of a time for them to read to themselves.


If there is a change in the way that your student is being picked up PLEASE email me or send me a message on Dojo I will do my best to check both.
