Day 17 - Wednesday, April 8, 2020

 

Happy Wednesday! :)

 

** On Flipgrid, add your video to the “Say Hello” and “My Favorite Memory” threads. Click the + sign in the green circle to add it to the main thread if you want to talk to the class/classmates.**

 

** An email was sent on Saturday to connect to you to our class on SeeSaw. The QR code has also been added to the class story. I will still communicate with you via DOJO and ask that you still message me there, as well. In my daily plan, you will know when you’ll need to log-on to SeeSaw and what you will need to complete. Here is a link to an FAQ if you need https://web.seesaw.me/remote-learning-for-families **

 

Literacy:

* Complete the writing prompt in the Fundations journal (15 minutes or less)

* Draw and decorate an egg for me.  Get as creative as you want!  You might want to color it in a pattern, draw your favorite character on it, or draw a Spring scene on it.  Write to tell me why your egg design is awesome. Make sure to use the word “because.  Ex: “My egg looks pretty because it has a pink flower on it.”  If you do not want to decorate an egg, you can draw and write about a “Spring Scene.” Please keep working on your sentence structure and sounding out words phonetically.  Remember… words should NOT be spelled correctly! You need to be able to write a sentence all by yourself in September that your teacher can read without you telling them what you wrote. Do your sentence all by yourself today and ask someone at your house to try to read it.  If they can, then you know you did it PERFECTLY for kindergarten!!!
