Social Studies

Watch Liberty's Kids - Episode 5 - Midnight Ride

When you have finished watching the episode, do the

"Liberty Kids - Episode 5 -Midnight Ride" quiz on Edmodo.

Also answer the question on Edmodo. Post your answer in the comments.


Time to get wet! Run through the sprinkler, play catch with a water balloon or soaked sponge. Have a water fight with a hose, bucket or squirt gun. Create a relay race transferring water from a bucket to a jug using a cup, sponge or spoon! Go wading in a creek.


Remember the song, “Shine, Jesus, Shine”?

Shine, Jesus, shine, fill this land with the Father’s glory

Blaze, Spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire

Flow, river, flow, flood the nations with grace and mercy

Send forth your word and let there be light.

Sing the song and then pick out a phrase from the song and draw a picture of it. Use lots of color and create a masterpiece!


In honor of Memorial Day, draw the American flag. Remember there are 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes. There are 50 stars in the blue rectangle but that might be a little tricky to make all 50 fit. Just add as many as you can.



Look for the note and positive affirmations from Ms. Heinrichs that was attached to my email.

The ABC Countdown will continue this week with the letters S, T, U, V, and W. The following week after Memorial Day will be X, Y, and Z. Thanks to those who have participated. I rather missed doing this at school. Below are some name acrostics from N day!

Memory Books

Those that are completing the memory books, please have all your pages completed by the materials pickup day at school. (The last page for the memory books will be assigned on W day.) There will be a labeled box/container there in which you should place your pages. It might be a good idea to have your name on each page and to paper clip them together. You should have a total of eight different items. If you need another copy of anything, let me know. Thanks for all your hard work!! I will mail the completed memory book to you as soon as I have them finished. The students I have down as completing a memory book are: Avery, Holly, Maryn, Cale, Charly, Kate, Addison, and Ethan. If I missed someone, please let me know as soon as possible!

Speaking of memories...
