June 8 – 12
Grade 4/5 students:
Great job on your ‘Home Learning’ students! I am very proud of your efforts and thank you to those who have sent me their personal narrative writing to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I enjoyed reading them and will give students some feedback today. Here is your schedule for the week:
Math – Login to Dreambox and complete a minimum of two activities each day (10 activities for the week). Remember that the activities with a calendar icon are ones that I have assigned.
Last week, 5 out of 11 students completed all 10 activities.
Writing Journal – Spend 15-20 minutes each day writing a journal entry.
Weekly Writing Task - Spend 15-20 minutes working on the assigned writing tasks so that you have finished good copies by the end of the week (remember to spend some time revising and editing your work). Email to email@example.com
Since this is our LAST week of Home Learning, I thought it would be appropriate to use this ‘Finish It’ choice board below (or choose a topic of your own). Choose one of the starters below to help with a topic for this week. Remember to write in paragraphs (a paragraph has sentences that are all connected to one main idea or ‘part’ of the story).
Some of these choices are opinion or persuasive prompts. If you choose an opinion prompt then remember to follow the format that we practiced.
I am attaching the District’s weekly STEAM newsletter for those who are interested in doing additional activities.
Reminder that students should spend 30 minutes each day reading and doing physical activity.
