I hope you all had a nice Easter weekend, and were able to celebrate with families and friends in a “social distancing” sort of way! 🙂
This week the kids will focus on Energy during their two core reading lessons. They will consider the question, “What are different kinds of energy?” during their expository text stories. They’ll practice cause and effect, will ask and answer questions, and review homophones. The weekly spelling words are posted in their Reading Google Classroom, as well.
In math, the two core lessons this week will shift to word problems. The kids will review various strategies as they break apart one and two-step problems.
The kids will also begin Embryology this week. They have a new Google Classroom to join called, “Integrated Studies.” From there, they will see a link for Science and Embryology lessons. They are very self-explanatory, and the kids will simply follow the list of directions to complete the lessons. There are also two cam links to let them watch the chicks virtually hatch when the days comes!
I have attempted…crossing my fingers…to post their PDF worksheets via “Kami.” Kami should allow the kids to open the documents and type on them! If I did the uploading correct…this would be very helpful if you don’t have a printer at home. Let me know how this goes! I will continue to post necessary PDFs on our class web page, as well.
Lexia and Dreambox
On our class web site under the reading and math tabs, you will find two new links to consider. Lexia is an online reading program, and Dreambox is an online math program. The directions to enroll are posted, and these two resources would be a great way for kids to practice their skills interactively! I hope you consider having your child participate in both!
I think that’s all for this week! I truly hope you are settling into a nice routine, and making the best of this situation we’re in. I can’t thank you enough for your patience, and all you’e done for your kids during this time to help them continue on their educational journey.
