Below is the work that you need to complete for school this week if you are unable to attend school in person. 

Math Work

Complete the Zearn lessons below.  Mrs. Devine is teaching those lessons this week.  If you complete the Zearn lessons you will have a better understanding of the math the class is doing when you return to school.

Tuesday:  Complete Zearn lesson Mission 3 Lesson 10. Watch the learning video.

Wednesday: Complete Zearn lesson Mission 3 Lesson 11. 

Thursday: Complete Zearn lesson Mission 3 Lesson 12. Watch the learning video.

Friday: Complete Zearn lesson Mission 3 Lesson 13. 

If you are behind on your Zearn lessons, you need to complete more to catch up!


Log onto ST Math every day and complete at least two levels.

Working on Nonfiction writing

We are starting a new unit this week in writing: Opinion Writing.  When we write this way, we want to say our opinion (our thoughts/feelings about something) and list reasons why we think/feel this way. 

For example, I could say, "In my opinion, pizza is better than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I think this because you can add lots of toppings to your pizza and you can't do that to your sandwich.  I also like pizza better because it has lots of cheese on it and I love cheese more than peanut butter!" 

You also might try to convince other people to agree with what you are saying by listing your reasons.  When you try and convince someone, you are trying to get them to have the same thoughts/feelings that you do about something.  

Using your collection from home (ask someone at home to help you get your collection together if you don't have one yet), start planning out your opinion and your reasons why you think/feel the way you do.  Pick your favorite piece in your collection and use reasons to explain why that is your favorite.  You can use some paper from home to make a book and on each page write one reason why you have the opinion that you do.  Start sketching first so you don't forget your ideas, then add your writing.  

Work on this book a little bit each day.  Remember to:

  1. Start by sketching your ideas on each page 
  2. State your opinion
  3. Give lots of reasons why you have that opinion
  4. Use ending punctuation
  5. Use capitals to start your sentences or for names 
  6. Use spaces when you write words 
  7. Reread your words to make sure they make sense to you and to a reader 


Reading Work

Watch the reading video, then log onto Reading A-Z each day and read for at least 20 minutes.  If there is no video for the day, just log onto Reading A-Z and read for 20 minutes.  Remember all of your good reading habits we have been learning and practicing in class. Try to pick Nonfiction books.  If you would like to log onto Pebble Go to read Nonfiction, that would be a good choice.

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday  are celebration and read aloud days.  There are no videos for these days, so please use Reading A to Z and Pebble Go to continue practicing reading nonfiction texts.
