Shauna DeRosa's Classroom: While you are out....

We Miss you!

We miss you!

If you are in quarantine or isolation use this page to complete work while you are out. 

For reading and phonics students should start out on Day 1 and complete ONE lesson in each subject area each day while they are home (if they are feeling healthy).  These lessons are a mix of review or lessons we will be getting too shortly that they will benefit by doing. 

In writing, there are descriptions of the two types of writing we have already completed, and the upcoming writing unit.  Students should write for 20 minutes each day. 

In math, the lesson will change each time a student completes one lesson so it is important to do ONE zearn lesson a day.

If you need just-right books, writing paper, or any other materials from school please let me know. 

When your child returns to school, jot down what day they were on in their lessons.  This will be helpful if they are required to spend time at home learning again. 

If you have any questions, or need materials from school, please reach out.

Writing

Students should write for 20 minutes per day. They can write on any paper you have at home, or I can provide paper if you need it!

Narrative Writing: Students have completed a writing unit on narrative writing, or true stories about something they have done.  We worked through the writing process to plan, sketch and write stories across pages being sure to include a beginning, middle and end.  Students should label their picture to include who is involved, thoughts the characters have or things that may have been said. 

Informational Writing: Students also completed a writing unit on informational writing. They learned to select a topic they are experts in already, or a topic they can read about and become an expert in (nonfiction books can be found on uniteforliteracy.com).  They plan their writing (should know at least 3-4 facts), sketch their pictures and write their facts across pages. They should include lots of details and labels in their pictures to help teach the reader more.   

Opinion Writing: We are starting a new writing unit! Students will learn how to write opinion pieces.  You can ask your child a prompt where they need to make a decision or have an opinion. 

Something similar to: Would you rather have pizza or ice cream? Would you rather read a book or write a book? Do you prefer Summer or Winter? Do you prefer Art or PE?

Your child should then make a decision as to what their opinion is, and list 2-3 reasons why across the pages of a book. Pictures should be used to help support their writing.

For ALL writing:

  • Students should check their writing for capitals at the beginning of sentences, for names and the word I. 
  • Students should also check for punctuation in their writing. 
  • Snap words should be spelled correctly by using a list (if needed) and all other words should be stretched out and include ALL sounds.
