Home Learning May 26th!

Posted: May 26, 2020


Dear Grade One,

Today is Tuesday, May 26th, 2020.

It looks a little cloudy this morning. 

But, I think it is going to be sunny and get super warm later.

What do you do to get cooled off when you are hot?

I like to go to the beach with my friends.

I’m not going today though. I am going to stay close to home and do some work.

Have a terrific day, stay cool!

Love, Mrs. Sobey

Your goal is to complete at least 5 lessons this week. Aim to complete 1 lessons today. Remember if you begin a game, please finish it.  

Problem of the Week

1)Estimate the length of your driveway or yard (using your own feet).  Remember, estimation means making a thoughtful guess about how many there is of something, the answer is NOT exact. When estimating we use the words “about, close to, and almost.” Once you’ve written down your “estimate” go out and figure out exactly how many of your own feet it is. You will walk just like if you were walking on a tightrope.

2) How many of your feet did it actually take? 

3) If your parent or guardian did the same thing would it take more or less feet? Explain your reasoning.

In addition to the activities suggested above students are encourage to read independently, participate in some physical activity and complete the task from the “Social-Emotional Learning” calendar.
