WE DID IT!! Week #2 of successful distance learning!  You all ROCK! Join me at 10 AM on a Zoom Call!

Math: (Continue from yesterday) Choice Alert! You may choose to do any one of the following activities: You may create (or draw) a ‘shape town’ using household items such as paper towel rolls, cereal boxes, etc., or create a ‘shape dance’ to a song and perform it, bake shape cookies with a parent, or visit Moby Max Shapes (Directions for the Moby Max online resource were attached yesterday). Please consider posting a video on FlipGrid to show us!  Have fun, Sushi Rolls!! 😊

Reading: You should have 3 more March issues in your Ziplock bag, along with skills activities for each. Choose 1 from your Ziplock bag to read and complete the skills activities that go with that issue. You can go to the website to explore more about your issue if you choose! (Directions for accessing the Scholastic News website were attached yesterday.)

Writing: Use your green journal and information you wrote from yesterday to write an opinion letter to our Mayor, Keisha Bottoms, with your best ideas about how we can help our environment! Discuss positive or negative consequences to changes you think we need. Do we need to stop clearing land because people just want to build more?  Should we reuse items more? Reduce the amount of trash we use?  If so, explain to her WHY this is important to you. Would you like people to plant more trees? Why? Should people in our community be helping others more? How?  Remember, be convincing in your letter. State your opinion, clearly. Write in complete sentences and include commas and proper nouns where they belong. At least 5 sentences, please.

All assignments should total no more than an hour of work each day. I understand that everyone works at their own pace, so please feel free to modify as needed and supplement with additional resources. The document that was emailed earlier with “online resources” has extra resources on it, please use. 😊

Email will be the best way to contact Mrs. Kim and me if you have questions or need help with anything!

Thanksgiving Food Drive Next Week!

Sope Creek Service Council

Thanksgiving Food Drive

This Thanksgiving season, give thanks and give back! The Sope Creek Service Council and the PTA Community Outreach Committee invite you to do just that by participating in the annual Thanksgiving Food Drive the week of November 4-8th.

Throughout the year, Sope Creek provides support by supplying some basic needs, such as school supplies and snacks, to the students of our sister school, Powers Ferry Elementary.  The Thanksgiving Food Drive provides essential items for a traditional Thanksgiving meal for many families in need at this school.  Please help us support our fellow community members by donating canned or boxed foods and any loose change that you can spare.  The change will be used to provide gift cards to our own Sope Creek families in need, so rummage through those purses and coat pockets for that loose change!  If you would like to donate grocery store gift cards (Kroger or Publix), please send in to your child’s homeroom teacher.

Just a few of the many items needed are canned vegetables (green beans, peas, yams, refried beans, black beans, corn, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots, squash, greens, etc.), boxed potatoes and rice (mashed, scalloped, rice, boxes or bags), boxed pasta mixes (macaroni, Mac-n-Cheese), boxed or bagged stuffing mixes (cornbread, herb, plain, bags/boxes), bags of flour, cornmeal, biscuit mixes (wheat, All-Purpose, white), boxes of baking goods (cake mixes, brownies, pie makings, corn bread), cans of gravy (turkey, chicken), soup (including cream of mushroom or chicken), cans of fruit (pumpkin, apple, cranberry, cranberry sauce, pineapple, applesauce, etc.), french fried onion strings,  and much, much more. This year we will also be collecting healthy snacks for the counselors to use at Powers Ferry when students arrive without a lunch.  Items include crackers, granola/cereal bars, trail mix, raisins, pretzels, etc.

The 4th and 5th grade Service Council representatives will be coming to classrooms each morning to collect the donations.  Classes that collect more than 100 items will be placed into a drawing to win lunch with the principal.  There will also be volunteers just outside the cafeteria during lunch all week for students to donate their change.  As always, thank you for your continued support.  Be proud that our school community is raising GREAT citizens, and remember, the best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your arm!
