Good Morning Students and Parents –
I am taking attendance based on student participation for the day. I am asking students/parents to submit one work item to me via email each day. I will be taking attendance each morning for the previous day based on student submissions. We realize this is a work in progress, but thanks so much for your continued support at home. I love to see the wonderful work my students are doing at home! Please see specials teacher’s websites for assignments as well.
Students you are doing a terrific job, and I enjoy seeing your fantastic work each day!
We are going to start off the day with one of your favorite songs! Watch the video below. Sorry if there are ads – skip through them!
Spelling – complete the ABC oder spelling page in your spelling packet.
Reading – You have three assignments in Reading today. Watch the video link below, complete a graphic organizer about Non-Fiction and Fiction books, and read a story about Horses. Watch the above video and learn about the differences between nonfiction and fiction books.
You can then complete the Nonfiction vs. Fiction graphic organizer handout from your homework packet. You can use examples from the video, find the names of books from your home, or online to complete the graphic organizer. You can list the names of the books on the lines for Nonfiction and Fiction and the one in the middle can be considered both Nonfiction and Fiction. In the blank spaces you can write an explanation of how you know the books are fiction, non-fiction, or both. You can draw a picture of the book cover if you have extra space.
You can then complete the Horses – Nonfiction Animals page in your homework packet.
I would like for you to take a picture of the Non-Fiction vs. Fiction graphic organizer handout page OR the Horses – Nonfiction Animals page and then email it to me for a grade and for attendance purposes.
Science – You have two assignments for Science today!
Firstly, click on the link below to watch the book called Spring Thaw by Steven Schnur – – Secondly click on the “CC” button because I want you to see the words as the book is being read to you. It’s called a “closed caption” because you can see the words. Teachers call it a “close read” because students can see the words being read to them. It helps to make you better readers! Next, go outside with your writing notebook or paper, look for four signs of Spring, and then write about them. Finally, you can draw a picture too!
Remember when we watched the Groundhog video on Groundhog Day? He did not see his shadow – – meaning spring should be coming very soon! If it is raining you can look out the window for signs of Spring.
Math – Go onto xtramath.org, log onto your student account, and complete 20 minutes of mixed addition and subtraction math facts. I sent the username and passwords home with students on Friday along with enrollment information if you need additional resources. I will receive an online report on your student’s progress.
Religion – Say the below closing prayer that we say at the end of each school day at St. Giles School.
Have a terrific Thursday!
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me so love.
Where there is injury pardon
Where there is doubt faith
Where there is despair hope
Where there is darkness light and
Where there is sadness joy.
Oh divine master grant that i may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life, Amen.
