Today is Wednesday, May 13th.

It is a ____________ morning. (What word would you use to describe what it is like outside?)

Mrs. Carroll has been working on getting our Yearbook finished.

She is looking for students to create possible covers for it.

Maybe that is something you could work on sometime over the next few days.

She will be at school on Friday to pick them up.

Have a great day everyone! Love, Mrs. Sobey 

(I posted all the information needed for Yearbook Cover entries yesterday families. Just scroll down this page a little further and you will locate it. Happy Drawing!) 

Language Arts Activties

Read Aloud

Follow this link: https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome/grades-1-2.html

Click Week 2 tab, then scroll down the page to “Day 6” and click on “Take Me There.

Watch “Life In the Pond” story. Then, complete the “Word Match” activity from the links on the left hand side of the page. 

Writing

Today your writing activity is to answer a “what would you rather” question.

Would you rather dig in the garden for worms or search a pond for tadpoles?

Students should begin by telling which activity they would rather do and then include at least 2 reasons why they would prefer that activity.

Here is my writing piece: 

I would much rather go search for tadpoles in a pond then dig for worms in the garden. I think that worms are slimy and gross so I would not want to have to pick them up. Also, I don’t like to go fishing so what would I do with the worms? If I had tadpoles I could take care of them and maybe have a pet frog some day. 

 *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.

Welcome to week 6 of “Home Learning!”

Thanks so much parents for helping your children complete the tasks I’ve been providing. I will remind you once again, these tasks are not intended to cause extra stress in an already stressful time. Please, “do what you can, when you can!” Thanks as well to those that have been emailing some written work. I love to see them and it also allows me to give children some feedback as to what they could work on next. Have a great week everyone! My email address again is jodi.sobey@nbed.nb.ca if you have any questions or concerns! 

Good Morning Children!

Today is Monday, May 11, 2020.

I hope you all had a fun weekend celebrating your moms.

My mom is coming to visit me this evening. I am excited.

Have a marvelous day kiddos! Love, Mrs. Sobey
