Ready to Get Learning?

I am so happy to have you all this year and I am excited to work with each family. These first three days are a little different than normal, we will be using them to meet with each family and share the Chromebooks with you.

I can recognize shapes and list attributes.

I can write a recount of events from my experiences.

I can recognize coins

I can write equations with a symbol and add within 20 using counting on methods.

I can describe how characters in a story respond to events in a story

I can classify behaviors as helpful or hurtful to friendships

I can interpret the feelings of others and how to respond when angry or sad

Monday

Students will be able to....

Identify appropriate standards for behavior.


Reading: This year we are going to become a family. I am super excited to get to know each of you. In today's activity we are going to start learning about each other. One thing to know about me is that I LOVE reading to my students. Below, please click on the link to listen to Lily's Purple Plastic Purse.


Me Bag Activity There is a mini paper lunch bag in your take home folder. Decorate the bag to describe you. Favorite colors, draw pictures of your favorite foods or activities. Then fill the bag with two items that describe you. Examples - favorite candy, book, pictures, etc. Be ready to share your Me Bag on Thursday's and Friday's Zoom class meetings!

Reading: Summer break is sadly over, but I would love to hear about what you did for summer.

After wards use the writing paper supplied in your packet to tell me about your summer.

Wednesday

Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges.

Classify behaviors as helpful or hurtful to friendships

Interpret the feelings of others and how to respond when angry or sad


Reading:
Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon is one of my favorite books because it's about a little girl who knows how special she is and does not let any one tell her different. Listen to both of the video lessons and then on the paper person from your packet tell me about what makes you special. Take a picture of the worksheet and send through Class Dojo.

Reading Activity

Students will be able to....

write equations with a symbol for the unknown number and add within 20 using counting on methods.


Math: This year in math we are going to be creating lots of equations. Today we are going to start with equations that equal to 20. How many different equations do you think you could make. Watch two video lessons below, then using objects found around your house create an equation that equals to 20. For examples 12 legos plus 4 pokemon cards plus 4 pencils equals 20.

12 + 4 + 4 = 20 How many different ways can you make twenty? Take a picture of your favorite one and send it through Class Dojo
