Happy Friday! :)

 

** On Flipgrid, respond to the topic called “My favorite book.”

 

Literacy:

* Writing (15 minutes or less) (to be completed over the whole week)

* Last week, you took some time to create a character and a setting for your fairy tale.  This week, you will write a story about that character.  Use your imagination and have fun!  It should have a beginning, middle and ending.  Please include illustrations on each page.  Take your time and work on this story throughout the week. You can write it in your Fundations journal, plain paper you may have, a separate notebook, or print out the paper I post on DOJO.

* Share it on DOJO or Seesaw when you are finished. You can even read it to me J

Mystery Doug will be live @ 1:00pm today à mysteryscience.com/live

 

Literacy:

* Writing (15 minutes or less) (to be completed over the whole week)

This week, we are going to start working on “Fairy Tales”

* Fairy tales are fun stories to read and write.  We have listened to a few throughout the school year and you probably have heard some at home as well.  Here are some examples…

 

The Three Little Pigs

Three Billy Goats Gruff

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Snow White

Cinderella

The Little Red Hen

 

* Fairy tales are important because they spark our imagination, and are often magical.  They are NOT realistic and anything can really happen in them.  The characters can be people or talking animals.  Some characters are very good and kind.  Sometimes there is an evil character in the story, too.  This type of story usually starts with “Once upon a time…” and it often ends with a “happily ever after”. 

* Listen to the story of The Little Red Hen below.  Then, fill out the Elements of a Fairytale worksheet on Seesaw. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E72TZy0LNo

 

* Start thinking of a fairy tale you would like to write next.  Start brainstorming!  What will your characters look like?  What are their names?  Where is your story going to take place?  What kind of problem and solution can they have?

* On Seesaw, there is a character paper you can plan out your main character.  If you are making an animal character you can just use a blank piece of paper. The second page of the template is to plan out your setting. Think of ideas for a problem and solution, too. You can also just draw your ideas on plain paper if you would like.   Like in class, these can be your “sloppy copies” so they don’t have to be neat.  Just get ideas in your head!  Next week, your writing assignment is going to be to write this story out for me.  So, please really take your time and think about what you want to write.  Just like with reading, the more you are interested in something, the harder you will work on it! 

 

* Fundations (less than 10 minutes)

* On SeeSaw, complete the “Long i, short i vowel sort” activity.

* Also, complete any activities not already done.

* Snap Word Practice (less than 10 minutes)

            * Choose how you want to practice today!

 

* Reading - By Friday, record yourself on Seesaw telling me what types of books you like to read best and why!

(This week, we are going to begin our next unit called “Avid Readers.”)

Avid readers are people who LOVE reading so much they can hardly stop!  If you look at the pictures of both boys on DOJO, you can tell who really enjoys reading and who doesn’t.  I want you to love reading books!  This week, try to figure out if there is a certain kind of book you like reading the most.  Do you like fiction?  Sometimes these books make me have many different kinds of reactions and feelings, almost like when I watch a movie.  Non-fiction books are fun to read too!  They teach us real facts and usually have very interesting information in them.  I like most books!  You might remember the ones that are not my favorite… the books that end and make me wonder what happens next!  I really don’t like when that happens. It is important to figure out what you like so you KEEP ON READING!!!

 

This week, I want you to try and figure out what kind of books YOU like reading the most.  Explore different kinds of books on Raz-Kids,  Epic, use books you have in your house or use any other source you know about to read books.

  • Learning mindfulness at a young age could really benefit your child.  We worked on being mindful often throughout the week when we were at school.  Mindfulness allows us to focus on our bodies, minds, and feelings and how they react to the present moment.  When we take time to be mindful, we give our physical and mental health a boost.  With everything going on in the world right now, I couldn't think of a better time to practice this skill! 

  

This week we continue to practice mindfulness. Please take a few minutes each day to be mindful!

  • Learning mindfulness at a young age could really benefit your child.  We worked on being mindful often throughout the week when we were at school.  Mindfulness allows us to focus on our bodies, minds, and feelings and how they react to the present moment.  When we take time to be mindful, we give our physical and mental health a boost.  With everything going on in the world right now, I couldn't think of a better time to practice this skill! 

  

This week we continue to practice mindfulness. Please take a few minutes each day to be mindful!

** On Flipgrid, I added a new topic called “My favorite book.”

 

Literacy:

* Writing (15 minutes or less) (to be completed over the whole week)

This week, we are going to start working on “Fairy Tales”

* Fairy tales are fun stories to read and write.  We have listened to a few throughout the school year and you probably have heard some at home as well.  Here are some examples…

 

The Three Little Pigs

Three Billy Goats Gruff

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Snow White

Cinderella

The Little Red Hen

 

* Fairy tales are important because they spark our imagination, and are often magical.  They are NOT realistic and anything can really happen in them.  The characters can be people or talking animals.  Some characters are very good and kind.  Sometimes there is an evil character in the story, too.  This type of story usually starts with “Once upon a time…” and it often ends with a “happily ever after”. 

* Listen to the story of The Little Red Hen below.  Then, fill out the Elements of a Fairytale worksheet on Seesaw. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E72TZy0LNo

 

* Start thinking of a fairy tale you would like to write next.  Start brainstorming!  What will your characters look like?  What are their names?  Where is your story going to take place?  What kind of problem and solution can they have?

* On Seesaw, there is a character paper you can plan out your main character.  If you are making an animal character you can just use a blank piece of paper. The second page of the template is to plan out your setting. Think of ideas for a problem and solution, too. You can also just draw your ideas on plain paper if you would like.   Like in class, these can be your “sloppy copies” so they don’t have to be neat.  Just get ideas in your head!  Next week, your writing assignment is going to be to write this story out for me.  So, please really take your time and think about what you want to write.  Just like with reading, the more you are interested in something, the harder you will work on it! 

 

* Fundations (less than 10 minutes)

* Watch the digraph video to practice with drilling these letters/sounds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4RN7iLx3cY

* On SeeSaw, complete the “Who Let the Dogs Out”activity.

            * On Seesaw, complete the “May Sight Word” activity.

Additional: Use words from your current SNAP word list. Pick 5 and choose 1 activity to complete from the previous weeks choice board.

 

* Reading (This week, we are going to begin our next unit called “Avid Readers.”)

Avid readers are people who LOVE reading so much they can hardly stop!  If you look at the pictures of both boys from DOJO, you can tell who really enjoys reading and who doesn’t.  I want you to love reading books!  This week, try to figure out if there is a certain kind of book you like reading the most.  Do you like fiction?  Sometimes these books make me have many different kinds of reactions and feelings, almost like when I watch a movie.  Non-fiction books are fun to read too!  They teach us real facts and usually have very interesting information in them.  I like most books!  You might remember the ones that are not my favorite… the books that end and make me wonder what happens next!  I really don’t like when that happens. It is important to figure out what you like so you KEEP ON READING!!!

 

This week, I want you to try and figure out what kind of books YOU like reading the most.  Explore different kinds of books on Raz-Kids,  Epic, use books you have in your house or use any other source you know about to read books.

 By Friday, record yourself on Seesaw telling me what types of books you like to read best and why!

 

* RAZ-kids (10-15 minutes minimum)

*  Log in and choose “level up” from the student portal

* Pick a story from the list. In order for the story to be marked complete, students need to listen to the book, read it, and take the quiz (not all books have a quiz)

** On Flipgrid, I added a new topic called “My favorite book.”

 

* Writing (15 minutes or less)

* This week we are going to work on writing "5 STAR Sentences!” We have discussed how to write a proper sentence throughout the year (capital, punctuation, spaces, words we know spelled correctly) – I know you can do it!  Use a blank page in your Fundations journal with no box on top.

* Parents… please dictate the sentences below to your child this week. Choose one per day to complete so 4 by TODAY.  The goal is for your child to remember all of the parts of writing a sentence ON THEIR OWN, and to try to stay in the lines when they are writing.  Some words can be phonetically correct, but sight words should be spelled correctly.  Placing out the sight word list might help as the children are accustom to using the word wall in our classroom.  WORDS SHOULD NOT BE PERFECTLY SPELLED so please do not tell your child how to spell. They need to sound it out on their own. You can use the same page all week.

 

1-The dog is happy with his bone.

2-Mom likes to bake cookies on the weekend.

3-Do you have a pet?

4-My favorite thing to eat is ________. (they can fill in blank J)

5-Can you ride a bike on the street?

  

When you have finished 4 sentences, please send it to me via Dojo or  post it on SeeSaw.

* Record yourself on seesaw retelling a story to me. To do this: click the plus sign at the top, post student work, then video. I’d like for you to send me 2-3 across the whole week. Below is some information on good retelling..

* Readers use all that they know about stories to make predictions.  Some books you read still have patterns, but as your books get harder you will find that they are like a real story.  There is often a character (person or animal) that does one thing, then the next, and then maybe a little more, and at last… the story will end.  Your job is to make your brain think harder when you are reading a story like that.  Don’t just wait for the words to tell you what happens!  Once in a while, take a guess and make a prediction.  What do you think will happen?  It is okay if you are not correct.  We have discussed this in class many times… everyone thinks differently!

*Readers also need Extra-Strength Book Talk Power

* Talk about your favorite parts… was something funny? Sad? Surprising? Scary?

* How do you think the characters were feeling?  Did their feelings change from the beginning to the end? 

* How did the book make you feel?

  • Learning mindfulness at a young age could really benefit your child.  We worked on being mindful often throughout the week when we were at school.  Mindfulness allows us to focus on our bodies, minds, and feelings and how they react to the present moment.  When we take time to be mindful, we give our physical and mental health a boost.  With everything going on in the world right now, I couldn't think of a better time to practice this skill! 

  

This week we are practicing mindfulness. Please take a few minutes each day to be mindful!

* Reading:

* Readers use all that they know about stories to make predictions.  Some books you read still have patterns, but as your books get harder you will find that they are like a real story.  There is often a character (person or animal) that does one thing, then the next, and then maybe a little more, and at last… the story will end.  Your job is to make your brain think harder when you are reading a story like that.  Don’t just wait for the words to tell you what happens!  Once in a while, take a guess and make a prediction.  What do you think will happen?  It is okay if you are not correct.  We have discussed this in class many times… everyone thinks differently!

*Readers also need Extra-Strength Book Talk Power

* Talk about your favorite parts… was something funny? Sad? Surprising? Scary?

* How do you think the characters were feeling?  Did their feelings change from the beginning to the end? 

* How did the book make you feel?

 

While you are reading this week, please remember that SUPER READERS RETELL their stories.

Super Readers Retell

-tell who

-tell where

-tell what happened

-tell it in order

-tell feelings

 * After you have finished a book, even if it is one a parent has read to you, you need to try to retell the story this week. Record yourself on seesaw retelling the story to me. To do this: click the plus sign at the top, post student work, then video.

 

Here are two good stories you can practice talking about and retelling this week with a parent or sibling. (If you want, you can also pick your own stories!)
