Hello Boys and Girls!

Today is thoughtful Thursday. The date is May 27th, 2020.

Look for ways to be thoughtful and caring at home today.

It is going to be a super hot day. I think I will hibernate in my house for the day. How about you?

Yesterday I looked at the clouds too and used my imagination to spy something.

The first thing I spied was a great big heart.

It made me think about all of you. You are all so very special and I am missing so, so much!

I am going to be calling you today. I will try to reach you this morning before you head out on your adventures to get cooled off.

Talk to you soon! Love, Mrs. Sobey

Your goal for the week is to complete at least 5 lessons. How are you doing? 

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.”

2) 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. Record on your paper how many of your feet it actually took? Was your estimate close?

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

*Students will need a toilet paper or paper towel tube and a piece cereal box cardboard for an art activity that they are going to complete on Friday! 

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.

Dear Children,

Today is "wacky" Wednesday. The date is May 27th, 2020.

It is a ____________, ______________ morning. (What 2 words you would use to describe what it is like outside this morning?)

I loved all the sunshine and warm weather yesterday. Did you?

Today I am going to clean my house and then I have a meeting. What will you do?

Have a fun day everyone!

You will watch a read aloud of “Picture The Sky” by Barbara Reid. 

Writing (You may have to wait to complete this activity after lunch!)

Head outside and look up at the clouds. I want you to use your imagination, what do see in the cloud shapes. Here is your writing prompt:  “When I look up at the clouds I see...” Please use some describing words. 

I’ve attached a Writer’s Checklist under the ”Documents” tab for you and your child to refer to, to help you evaluate what they are doing well and what needs to be worked on next. Each of these writing skills have been taught during Writer’s Workshop time. Pick 1 area that your child could work on and work together to fix that up. Once they’ve shown improvements in that area, set a new goal together.  

Parents: I’d love to see your child’s writing pieces when they are done. That way I can also give some feedback as to what could be worked on next so that their writing will continue to develop. Writing pieces can be emailed to me at jodi.sobey@nbed.nb.ca.

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
