Parents,  

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s begin another week of hard work and learning!

Monday- 3/30:

ELA- Long Vowel Trickers– Workbook P. 43/44. We have learned many rules about short/long vowel sounds. However, there are some words that just do not follow those rules. Sometimes if a word has one vowel and it is a longer word, that vowel can make the long vowel sound. Please watch the attached video to review short/long vowel sounds. For P.43, please help students decode the words and trace the long vowel line above the vowel. For P.44, please fill in the missing long vowel trickers that makes sense. Also, read the spelling list with the students.

ELA- ReadingAfter reading the Superkid Short “You and Me and the Superkids” on the iPad or reader, answer the discussion question on Google Classroom.

Math– Ch.5 Math Test. Please print out the test and complete it carefully. As always, take the test by yourself without any assistance. Parents, you may read the test to your child. If you do not have a printer, please have the child number pieces of notebook paper or loose-leaf and record their answers down neatly. Please have all work be shown. Upload photos of the test.

Religion Read the bible story about Good Friday. Complete the worksheet by pasting the sentences in the correct order under the picture. Take a photo and upload it. Also, please watch the attached video up until 15 minutes and 49 seconds.

HandwritingPlease print out the sheet, complete it, and upload a photo. If you do not have a printer, please write it on a piece of paper in your notebook neatly. Remember, handwriting is to be done carefully so that we can practice making our letters properly and neatly. Refer to the handwriting chart posted to practice forming the letters correctly.

Spelling- Please write the following spelling words 3x each in your spelling notebook using the lines correctly. Upload a picture when completed.

  1. Paper
  2. Even
  3. Silent
  4. Open
  5. Super
  6. Their
  7. Now
  8. Always
  9. Because
  10. Been

**There will be a Unit 10 Reading Test given tomorrow on the iPad. For the most part, everyone was able to access the assessment as it pops right up as soon as you log in. After you using the SuperKid app today, please be sure to log out entirely so on Tuesday morning when you log in, it should be there. If it does not, I will give you an alternate. Do not worry.***

Tuesday 3/31

ELA- Reading- Please log onto SuperKids Online fun and complete the Unit 10 assessment. I will receive a score report of your scores for each section. If for some reason after you logged on the assessment did not pop up, I will send you over an alternate assessment. Please be sure to let me know.

ELA- Reading-Using the reader or app, please read “A Super Day at Happy Land.” Please complete SuperKids P.49. When completing this page, read the sentence and write the sentence number next to the ride it describes. Remember, good readers always go back to the story to make sure they are recalling it correctly. Please upload a photo of the workbook page.

ELA- Long Vowel Trickers-Please complete SuperKids Workbook P.45. As we looked at yesterday, sometimes when we are reading longer words we are unsure if the vowel will make a long vowel sound or a short vowel sound. To be smart readers, we will use a strategy called “try short, try long.” As you try to decode the words on this page, first  try the short vowel sound and then if that word doesn’t sound like a word you know then try the long vowel sound. As you complete the page, please put the correct mark above the vowel and draw a line to the correct picture that matches the word. Take a photo and upload it.

Spelling- Please write the spelling words #1-10 in ABC Order in your spelling notebook using the lines correctly. Upload a picture when completed.

Math- We are beginning a new chapter, in which we hope to answer “How can you use tally charts and picture graphs to display data? In this chapter, just like we do in science, we will explore data and organize it into different kinds of charts/graphs so it is easier to read. Please complete Lesson 10-1 (please note we are now back to Volume 2 of our Math Workbook), which is on reading tally charts. We keep a tally of the number of day of school every morning for our Morning Meeting so they should be familiar with this concept already. Also, please draw the students’ attention to the words in the question such as “how many more” and “how many in all.” They should recall how many more tells them to subtract and how many in all tells them to add. Please take photos of P.377-379 and upload them. Attached please also find a video with more practice on making tally marks.

Religion– Read the bible story titled “Jesus is Buried” and “Easter Sunday.” Complete the worksheet by pasting the sentences in the correct order under the picture. Take a photo and upload it. Also, please finish watching the attached video from where we left off yesterday at 15 minutes and 49 seconds. Continue to study for the test on Holy Week on Thursday.

Wednesday 4/1
ELA- Reading- Reread the story “A Super Day at Happy Land.” If you are using your iPad, try not to listen to it this time. Use your decoding and memory words skills to try to read it all on your own! Please complete the attached worksheet by gluing the supporting details under the correct main idea. Please also complete Workbook P. 50, in which you have to write the correct long- vowel tricker on the line to complete the sentences from the story. Upload a photo of both activities please.

ELA- Compound Words– Compound words are when you take two words and put them together to make one word. For example, “base” and “ball.” If I put them together without leaving any finger space, I get baseball. I got a brand new word! Please have the students watch the attached YouTube video, which will introduce them to compound words. Please have the students complete the two worksheets, in which they have to create a compound word and decompose a compound word into its two parts.

Math- Lesson 10-2 Please complete workbook P. 382-384. As you create your tally chart, be sure to cross out each fruit after you use it so you do not forget that you already counted that fruit! Please upload photos of the pages. ***There will be a math quiz on Thursday, as well- P.385-386***

Science– We will begin our unit on weather. Attached you will find a few documents to help the students better learn weather. First, you will see a page that describes what weather is for the students. After reading what weather is to them, please have them watch the attached YouTube video. Next, throughout the unit we will keep our own Weather Dictionary. If possible, please print out the cover page and the first page covering our newly learned word “weather.” Please have the students begin by illustrating a picture in the box for the term “weather.” (There are two copies on one sheet. You only need to make one dictionary) If you do not have a printer, please find paper that you can staple together to make this dictionary for them. After that, you will find an attachment that has a bunch of weather words. There is also an attached worksheet that goes with that page. Students have to pick 8 of those terms that describe the weather and illustrate it and label it on the line. To make it more fun, feel free to cut out the terms and hide them around the house like a scavenger hunt for the children as they find it, they draw it and write it. Please upload a photo of the Weather Dictionary and the weather worksheet completed.

Spelling– Please write sentences with spelling words #1-5. Upload a photo.

Religion– Please study the study sheet for our test on Holy Week tomorrow.

Thursday 4/2

ELA- Reading-On the SuperKid app, please read the informational Super Duper magazine titled “Making Waves.” After you are done, please complete the attached worksheet on recalling facts from the text. Be sure to go back to the text if you forgot the answer.

ELA- Compound Words-Please have the students watch this video to refresh their memory about compound words and have them join in with Jack Hartman by using their hands to create the compound words.  Complete the worksheet in which you have to use the two pictures to create the compound word. Don’t forget when you write a compound word you do not leave any finger spaces since you now created one word!

Math-Ch.10 Math Quiz. Please complete P. 385-386 in your math workbook without any assistance just like we do in school. Please upload photos of them. Good luck!

Religion- Holy Week Test- Click on the Google Forms and take it directly on your device. You do not need to print anything out.

Science- Meteorologist- Today we are going to learn all about meteorologists. Attached you will find an attachment that describes what a meteorologist does. Please log onto Epic and check your mailbox. You will have an audiobook assigned to you titled “Weather: What Does a Meteorologist Do.” Please listen to the audiobook. Next, please watch the attached video to better learn about meteorologist. Then, complete the worksheet by filling in what you learned from the audiobook and video about what meteorologists do. Please upload a photo of the worksheet.

Spelling-Please write sentences with spelling words #6-10. Upload a photo. Study for test on Friday.

***Updated Test Schedule***
Thurs. 4/2- Test on Holy Week, Ch.10 Math Quiz (P. 385-386)
Fri. 4/3- Spelling Test
Tues. 4/7- Unit 11 Reading Test
Wed. 4/8- Ch. 10 Math Test

Friday4/3

ELA- Compound Words-Compound Word Interactive. You do not have to print anything out for this. You will be able to complete it electronically. This will open via Google Slides. For the first page, the students need to drag one word from each box to form a compound word until all the word have been used. For the second and third page, the students have to write the two words that make up that compound word. To do so, you can go to Insert, Textbox, and then draw a textbox on each line so that you can type it in. If you prefer to, you may have the child hand write the answers and upload a photo of it. Whichever is easiest for you works for me.  I also attached a video that is like a game for the students to play on beating the clock to guess the compound word. Have fun!

ELA- Synonyms- Please complete Workbook P. 51, in which students have to read the sentence and pick the synonym for the pink word. We have already gone over synonyms and antonyms and I have taught them a “trick” that synonym starts with a “s” and so does “same” so synonym means the same. Please upload a photo of this page. Attached is a cute video that gets the kids up and dancing when learning synonyms and antonyms.

ELA- Spelling Test. Listen to the attached audio. On a piece of paper ripped out from your notebook, please number it 1-10. As you listen to the audio, try your best to spell the words correctly without receiving any assistance from your parents or looking at the words elsewhere, just like we do in school. Good luck!

Math- Lesson 10-3 Picture graphs can be used to show many tally marks are in a tally chart by using a simple picture! As you are answering the questions, do not forget! “How many more” tells us to subtract and “how many in all” tells us to add. “Fewest” means we are looking for the smallest number and “most” means we are looking for the biggest number. Please complete P. 388-390 and upload photos of it.  Attached is a video from Brain Pop Jr. on picture graphs.

Science- Weather/ Meteorologist Review. Please read the book assigned to you in Epic on Weather. Then complete the attached two worksheets and the page for your dictionary. For the first one, please look at the map using the map key, like we learned in social studies, to figure out the weather in each state. For the second worksheet, illustrate yourself as a meteorologist giving the weather forecast and illustrate your favorite kind of weather! These two worksheets will be counted towards a grade on Option C. Please upload photos of both worksheets and the meteorologist page attached as part of your dictionary.

Religion– Since you all did excellent on your test, here is a treat! Please color in the cross using the code. If you do not have a printer, you can color it in electronically using “mark up” option or draw your own cross that is similar and color it in using the code.

Due by Sun. 4/5 at midnight- Please complete the attached handwriting sheet over the weekend. Remember to look at the handwriting chart to follow to make the letter “B” and “b.” Do it carefully and neatly! (:

Test Schedule for next week:

Tues. 4/7- Unit 11 Reading Test
