Reading: Continue to use Lexia and stamina read daily. You can use Raz-kids for supplemental reading material. Reading: Friends by Helme Heine Learning target: Describe characters, settings and major events in a story, using key details. Charlie Rooster, Johnny Mouse, and Percy the pig are the best of friends. They do everything together. They ride their bike together, play games together, and even do their chores together. Because that's what good friends do. When night falls, though, and it's time to go to bed, they learn that sometimes friends have to be apart. But that's okay, because true friends always find each other, even if it's just in their dreams.
Vocabulary: Strutted-to walk with a stiff step tiller-a horizontal bar at the head of a boat's rudder post and used as a lever for steering conquered-to overcome or take control of rumbled-to make a continuous deep sound pigsty-a pigpen perch-to rest on something
This will be Monday’s reading lesson and Wednesday the students will read a nonfiction book off Scholastic.
Writing: We are finished revising and editing our 4 books for SERIES WRITING. This week we are going to create a COVER page to go at the beginning of each book. The COVER page needs to have the following: Title of the Series, Title of the Book, Author, and a Picture. Your child can choose to upload each cover page to Seesaw or the one they like best.
Math: Students can now choose to answer the assignment problems on Seesaw or in their problem set books but should be watching the video on Seesaw first! The Seesaw lesson will show the 3-5 required problems for that assignment, however, the problem set will have more. You can do the extra problem set problems for an extension activity. Please make sure you and your child read all the directions so you know what skills or strategies should be used that day. As a reminder, RDW problems require students to Read the problem, Draw a picture (will usually say what kind in the directions), and Write a number sentence and statement to match the story.
We are trusting that you will not get ahead of the Seesaw lessons because it is important that students watch the corresponding lesson before doing any work! Our lessons will not be in numerical order so students will have to see what lesson number we are working on each day. We hope that providing the Problem Set books will take some stress away from the math work! Just remember to upload a picture of the completed required problems and upload to the corresponding Seesaw assignment. In addition, if you notice your student getting distracted or not being able to focus, set a timer for 10 minutes. During that 10 minutes, your child should be independently working on the math problems. Once the timer goes off, your child can be done and start going over their work with you. Students should be working that entire 10 minutes just like we did in class! Below you will find the previous weeks’ math lessons for reference. The days with a star are key lessons that students should watch even if they did not complete the assignment.
