READ ALL OF THIS CAREFULLY, PLEASE!
I’m not sending work for March 19 and 20. Consider it an early spring break! This work below is for March 30-April 3. This is unchartered territory for us so here we go!!
It’s important we stay connected. I will use our Remind texting account to give information. No one sees your responses but me. You can access this letter from the Lakeside website lakesidechiefs.net. Go to About, then Faculty and Staff, then Suzann Tibbs, then Teacher Blog.
I’m not assigning by the day of the week. I’ll let you determine what is done when. All work should be completed by Sunday, April 5 and saved to return to school when this crisis is over. Please don’t work ahead in the reading workbook!
Reading, Spelling, and English:
Open Court Unit 5, Lesson 3, How Congress Works (username and passwords are in binders)
Notice in Open Court’s Skill Practice workbook, the number of the unit and lesson are at the bottom of the page. This week the assignments are pages 107 to 120. Use the following link to listen to the story. Students should read the story several times. They will write sentences with the vocabulary words. Another day, write sentences with spelling words. You will administer a spelling test Friday
if you wish. Extra activities are
writing antonyms (opposites) and synonyms (the same) for our words.
Liberty’s Legacy A Nation of Immigrants is the lesson this week. Go to the website below and watch the videos. Complete pages 11-12 as well as page 25 (vocabulary) in the workbook.
Saxon lessons 99 thru 102 are in this packet. Notice Lesson 100 is over two days (100-1 and 100-2). If it says assessment at the top right corner, it is to be done totally alone. Ideas: Use the plastic folder and dry erase pen to practice math. Put Saxon papers inside (if you do this, make sure they write the answers on the actual paper when done as it must be returned to school) or create math problems on paper, slip in the folder, they answer, erase and begin again! Multiplication facts need to be memorized. You can work on them all. There are too many free apps to list. We MUST memorize multiplication facts before we enter 4th grade.
Your child may complete one page a day.
Students write the date and write in their journal every day. Give them a topic (examples: what if I were home schooled, favorite book, what I would do with a million dollars, etc.).
Your child may complete reading workbook pages prior to page 107. DO NOT WORK BEYOND PAGE 120!!
There are three pages included our binders that have fun, random activities to do. You may devise a way to select which ones.
Practice measuring with rulers, yardsticks, cups, teaspoons, etc.
Let them write letters to grandparents, aunts, uncles. We’ve learned the parts of a letter and how to address an envelope. Great practical application of knowledge!
If you find a good app, share with me and I’ll pass along. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. This, too, shall pass. Miss Suzann 334.695.3764
