Dear Students,

 

We are learning as we go! Please do your best to work on all of the assignments posted each day!  You can handwrite your assignments if needed.  Work can be kept in your "Just In Case" folder and you can hand it in upon our return to school. For reading and writing assignments that you complete using Google Docs remember to share it with myself and Mrs. Jeney.

Our next Zoom meeting will be on Thursday at 2:00. All the information will be posted on Google Classroom a few minutes prior. 

 

Please visit the websites of your specials teachers! They have assignments for you to complete as well. Today is Day 5 and it is Gym! 

 

I've added a new tab to this website called "This Week." In this tab you will be able to view the work assigned so far this week.

Reading

 

1 Monday through Friday this week, please read (or review each chapter in) the book that you chose for your wax museum project for 20 minutes. As you read, identify the main idea of the chapter(s) and supporting details.  Think: What does the author want me to know about this person?  Which of his/her accomplishments are important to know about?  Take notes or use post its as you read and find important, not just interesting, information.

 

2. Continue to work on your Wax Museum Biography Notes which can be found on Google Classroom. It must be completed by April 16th. There is also an example of the assignment on Google Classroom. 

 

 

 

 

 Writing- Poetry Week

 

 1. I hope you are enjoying Poetry Week.  Today, after watching Mrs. Donohue's video, you will make observations of what you see, hear, and even smell from a window.  You are to look out from your window a few times during the day.  Use the recording sheet "Out My Window" to note your observations.  The video and the "Out my Window" google doc is posted on Google Classroom as an assignment.
