Extended Learning Plan

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, learning will now take place at home. There will be no school until at least May 15th. Please check back here for detailed plans on things you can do at home for the week. If pictures don't show up or if links don't work below, then please click on the extended learning link on the side and you can open the document with all the information you need. All logins were sent to your email. Subjects covered will be Reading, Writing, Work Work, Math, and Science. Please take pictures of your child's work and send the pictures through dojo every Monday for the prior week's work. Feel free to email me with any questions you have. 

 

Reading

Each day practice reading on Get Epic.com for at least 20 minutes. Your child may also read from a book of their choice. You can document their reading using a homemade reading log.

I am now making readworks.org a requirement. I think it is extremely important for students to still get their guided practice they would be getting in class each week. This will only be for 3 days. You child will be assigned 1 article and I would like them to spend 3 days on it. On day 1, have them read the article and practice the vocabulary. If there are vocabulary activities, then do these on day 1 as well. On day 2, read the article again and answer the multiple choice questions. On day 3, read the article for a 3rd time and answer the written response questions.

-Have your child watch one of the read aloud videos each day, and then write down the answers to the questions.
