Writing- Weekend News- please remember to use your Writer's checklist and follow writer's rules! 


Shared Reading- Re- read "Whistle for Willie independently (try to read this on your own!) 

*complete pages 115-116.  These pages are in both the packet and green Reader's Notebook. You may choose either one!   


Math- complete a function machine worksheet in packet


Grammar- complete a possessive pronoun paper from your packet (or green reader's notebook) Possessive pronouns show that something belongs to someone. The pronouns my, your, his, and her come before a noun. ex. "This is my dog". The pronouns mine, yours, his and hers come at the end of a sentence.  ex. "This dog is mine".

 Shared Reading- Read "Pet Poems"  or found in the packet.

 Compare and contrast the stories, "Whistle for Willie" and "Pet Poems".  Can you find anything the same and different between these 2 texts? Compare and contrast two pets- how are they the same? How are they different? (This can just be a discussion, you do not have to write this)


Phonics- Read the Decodable Reader, Two Good Cooks, at the back of your packet.  Take the pages off of your packet and fold it into a booklet.  After reading the story the first time, be a /oo/ word detective.  Highlight (with a light crayon) all the /oo/ words.  Re-read the story with someone at home.  You can make it fun- every time you get to a highlighted /oo/ word, whisper it/shout it/clap it/stomp it/- whatever you want!


Spelling- complete one of the spelling worksheets in the packet.  Something fun- write each spelling word and each sight word on a little piece of paper. Have someone hide them around your house and have a word hunt (like an egg hunt).  When you find a spelling word, spell it without peeking. When you find a sightword, read it (maybe you can challenge yourself, and spell that too!) 


Math-complete a page in your math packet. If you have finished the function machine pages,or you need a break from function machines, move on to a math box page. You can go back to function machines later, if you need too.




 **We hope you can join us on zoom today at 4:00pm for the story and discussion of "Bunny Trouble"! See Class Dojo for the meeting code and password.

Shared Reading- Take Lesson 23 Comprehension assessment, as a review.  Have someone at home read the question and then the answer choices.  Fill in the circle for the best answer.  We would love to know how you did!


Math- complete a page in your math packet.


Spelling- take Lesson 23 spelling assessment (paper in packet in the spelling section). No Peeking! I know a lot of you like to try the challenge words!  The words are crook and hoof.  Remember, you get bonus points for the challenge words if they are correct and you will not lose points if they are incorrect! No backwards or capital letters please!!


Writing- Make a list of things that a pet needs.  Draw a picture.  This paper is in your packet  in the writing section or you can write this in your blue journal. Use your writer's checklist and follow all good writing rules!
