Hello, boys and girls!  


Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Here are your reading, writing, and math assignments for Tuesday, March 17, 2020.  Be sure to check Mr. Strauss's website for science, social studies, and/or health assignments.  Check your special teachers' websites as well.  


Please email me each day if you can to let me know which activities you completed.  If your parents are able to, send me a pic of your completed work, or give it to me when we return to Campbell.  I saw some great pics on the first day!  One parent said they are keeping their child's completed work in a folder, which will be handed in when school is back in session.  This is a great idea!  


Thank you to the students who recorded themselves on RAZ Kids.  I wrote each one of you a comment and awarded you RAZ points for completing this activity.  Let me know if you found my comments!  Please be sure to do it again today!    


Stay well-rested and healthy!  


I miss you all,

Mrs. Smith




1.  Read to yourself or with a partner for 15 minutes.  You can read a book from home or use RAZ Kids (rsmith199).   


RAZKids - Look for assigned books in your reading room.  Record yourself reading one of these books.  That is an option on RAZ Kids.  I will listen to your recording and provide you with feedback.


2.  Listen to the book That's What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting, which can be found on YouTube at  


Before you listen to the book: Do you know what the word mischief means?  Mischief is ... bad behavior that is often playful but can be annoying or dangerous to others.  Do you know anyone who ever was a little mischievious?  Were you?  Turn and talk about this with a family member. 


During reading:  The leprechauns said no mischief today!  Did they keep their word?       


After reading:  What was your favorite part of the story?  Tell me why.  On a piece of paper draw your favorite part and tell me why this was your favorite part.  My favorite part was ___________________ because _____________________.  Email this to me, or hand it in when we return to school.    





3.  Continue to think about the story That's What Leprechauns Do.  What would you do if you found a pot of gold?  Would you share it?  Would you hide it?  Would you buy something special?  Write a 5 sentence paragraph telling me what you would do if you found a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.    


Please make sure you write 5 sentences using details.  The first sentence is your topic sentence (It would be _____ to find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow).  The next 3 sentences are details (First, I would ________.  Then, I would _________.  Finally, ________.).  The final sentence is your closing sentence (Finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow would be ________).  Think of our 4 square graphic organizer!  When you are done writing, check your work.  Do your sentences sound right?  Did you check each sentence using COPS (Capitalization, Overall appearance, Punctuation, Spelling)?  


Email me your paragraph, or save it for when we return to school.
