Good morning parents!
Here is today’s PNN: https://vimeo.com/399871824
Here is a screen cast that you, really my students, can view to help them with their work today. https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYe3bJy2Od They can always pause, fast forward, or rewatch parts of the video as needed. I go a little bit back and forth between talking to you, the parents, and students. Hopefully I will get better at it! Remember, if anything seems unclear, or your child has any questions, I will be available via email from 9:00-10:30am, and most likely many other times throughout the day as well. 😊
For today’s assignments…
Math: Answer numbers 36-42 of the Math packet. Time permitting complete at least one lesson on Dreambox.
Reading/Writing: From the Writing packet, read the passage The Red Shell and answer the prompt.
Helpful tips to writing the ending of a story:
Use the same point of view
The ending needs to make sense with the rest of the story
Include important characters
Don’t forget the setting
Time permitting, read for 20+ minutes.
Social Studies: Pick one of the studies weekly that came home on Friday. You will use this one for the entire week. Read a few sections of the newspaper each day. On Friday, answer the review questions or complete the activity on the back.
Additional Learning opportunities for today: (Considered “Extra Credit” on the Pitner Buck Price List)
- Write 5-8 of your own two-step word problems that include any of the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). Solve them yourself first, but then get an older sibling or your parent to solve them, too.
- Have a parent or sibling make a quick scribble on a piece of paper. Then, you turn their scribble into a picture.
*Proof of completing extra credit can be a picture emailed to me OR posted on our Class Notebook under the Online Learning Extra Credit tab. To access the notebook: Click the Parents tab on the Cobb County websiteà select Office 365 log-inà students will log in using their email. For most it is firstname.lastname@example.org and the password is the same password they use to log into computers at school. Hopefully, they remember where to go from there!
