What Is Due?
1. Have students complete their math review. Click on the Math Review 1-3 link below.
Turn in 1 math review. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d8hJueRERxXIoV7yKf3eO_pWS0N-6UjW/view?usp=sharing

Math Review Example
The numbers this week are: 74, 109 and 113. Turn in 1 Today’s Number paper.
I can compare numbers to 120 using comparative language such as greater than, less than and equal to.
I can order whole numbers up to 120.
I can compare two numbers to 100 using the symbols > (greater than),<, (less than) or = (equal to).
**Students may need to draw pictures to represent the numbers when comparing (squares for hundreds, lines for tens, and dots for ones).**
1.Compare and Order Numbers to 120 Using Number Lines
Use the number lines and following questions to practice comparing numbers

Domino Train War https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Jq1rCxavD1Cptz6GXY59PFehYIt2-LRw/view?usp=sharing
1. Equally divide a set of dominoes into two.
2. Place the dominoes in a straight line next to your partners.
3. Both players will turn over one domino at the same time and state the value of the domino in tens and ones and the number it makes. (ex: 2 tens and 5 ones is 25)
4. The player with the greatest number keeps both dominoes.
5. The winner is the person with the most dominoes at the end!
I can retell the plot in fiction books.
1. Have your child read or listen to a fiction book. You can use books from home or go to Storyline Online or Get Epic.
2. They have been working on good reading habits all year. Have them tell you some of our good reading habits.
3. You can ask your child these questions and have them respond to you when they are finished reading a fiction story. They may use the retelling bookmark to help them orally retell the story.
Let’s retell. What is the problem? If you had to tell me the problem using a few words, what would you say? How was the problem solved?
Optional: Students may complete the retell readers response sheet.
I can tell the difference in a BIG MEMORY and a SMALL MOMENT.
We hope you enjoyed celebrating your writing last week! We are going to continue to “polish up” our personal narratives, while we zoom in on small moments.
Review the two “A Small Moment Story” example charts. Discuss what a BIG MEMORY is and what a SMALL MOMENT is.
Complete the sort. Make 2 piles, one for BIG MOMENTS (apple stories) and one for SMALL MOMENTS (seed stories). Have them cut and sort the ideas. Discuss the difference in the two piles.
Make a list of BIG MOMENTS that they would like to write about. (5-10 ideas)
Take the list of big moments, cut them apart and list some SMALL MOMENTS under each. (Save this list of big and small moment ideas for writing next week)

Optional: Students can create a “writing book box” to store all their finished books in. This can be made using a cereal box (see example picture) and can be decorated for fun!
I can read and write sight words
Have students choose 2 activities from the list of ideas below. Use 10 sight words for each activity. Sight Words: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ilveJsWCWFRTbZ7y8I22T4Z-UVXS7NVo/view?usp=sharing
Chalk sight words, hide sight words around the house and have your child find and read them, write sight words in shaving cream, find sight words in books, turn off the lights and call out sight words for your child to find with a flashlight, put sight words on the ground and have your child jump to each one and read them to avoid the “lava”, call out sight words and have students use a fly swatter to slap them, and sing along with sight word videos linked.
They should be practicing reading and writing their sight words.
Continue to listen and sing along with the phonics song. https://youtu.be/ctuXvRV4Q5I

I can analyze and record examples of interdependence found in various situations such as aquariums.
Have students watch, Youtube: How Plants and Animals Depend on Each Other. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGxzFBRBwpg&feature=youtu.be
Students will then read about the Aquarium Interdependence and watch the opening scene from”Finding Nemo.” Students will need to pay attention to how the clownfish are depending on the coral and how the larger fish are depending on the clownfish.
