Google Classroom

If you miss a day of school, our reading and math rotation activities will be posted in our Google Classroom for you to work on while you are at home.

Standards for the Week:


L.5a:Demonstrate understanding of nuances in word meanings. a. Distinguish the literal and nonliteral meanings of words and phrases in context.

*literal language, word/phrase meanings – language (i.e., words and phrases) that is used factually (i.e., according to the actual definition) and explicitly, allowing no room for interpretation or inference (Note: See, as a contrast, idiom and figurative language)

*nonliteral language, word/phrase meanings – words and phrases that are intended to be figurative (i.e., not to be interpreted by literal, denotative meanings)

RL.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, identifying words that impact the meaning in a text.

*phrase(s) – a small group of words representing a conceptual unit, containing either a subject or a verb, but not both. Both a subject and a verb would constitute a clause (e.g., “Running through the forest, she breathed in the fresh, crisp air.”)


3.G.1: Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories

NC.OA.2: For whole-number quotients of whole numbers with a one-digit divisor and a one-digit quotient
