Digital Learning- Week of May 4

May the 4th Be With You!!   

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I can’t believe it is May. My family enjoyed a lot of time outside enjoying the sunshine. I have loved spending time playing with kids and learning new games with my family.

 

This Week’s Zoom Meetings

This week I will be having two Zoom meetings, one on Tuesday and one on Thursday, from 10:00-11:00. Students can pop in as needed to ask questions about their activities or just to say hi. If your child would like to drop in, please send me an email and I will send you the link. I won’t be posting it on the blog for security purposes. If you need a different day or time, please let me know.

Don’t Forget…

Don’t forget to send me emails of your progress throughout the week. I appreciate the work that I have seen. Some of you are expert problem solvers!  Make sure to show all your work. Send me a picture when you have finished.

Hello!

It’s Spring Break!!

Good morning! I know this spring break will be different than what most of us had planned, but it can still be exciting. Here’s what I want you to do…step away from digital learning and PLAY!! Create new art projects, play games, watch movies, write in journals. Spend as much time as you can making memories with your family!! After next week, email me and let me know what you did. I miss your stories!!!!

Over the break I will be completing all of the challenges that were sent to me. My kids will help capture them on video as I attempt to do everything. (Let’s just hope I don’t break any bones.) I will start sharing them after spring break.

Upcoming Labs:

  • Paper Plane Take Off
  • Coordinate Planes Art
  • Hot, Hot, Hot Math Team Problems

Ultimate Teacher Challenge #1- Subtitles Please

Challenge 1- Watch entire collection of Studio Ghibli movies.

Aaron C in 5th grade challenged me to watch an entire series of Studio Ghibli’s Japanese animated movies. He encouraged me to turn on the subtitles since most of them are in Japanese. Challenge accepted!!

I chose to watch Ponyo tonight. I’ll spare you the video of me watching movies, but let’s just say I’m excited. I chose this movie because it looks so cute! I love the animated characters. I’m not sure I’ll be able to binge watch them all, but I will try to watch as many as I can.

 

Upcoming Challenges:

  • Dancing the renegade
  • Making homemade waffles
  • Baking cupcakes
  • Playing the harmonica (once I get it from Amazon)
  • Tennis
  • Arm Knitting
  • Playing volleyball
  • Taking an online dance class with my daughter
