Week 4 Grade Level Learning Plans

Check out page 2 of each grade level plan for learning opportunities in many areas of your child's development (physical, creative, musical, linguistic, emotional).


*NEW* each week! World Language, Music, Physical Education, and Social-Emotional Learning plans are designed with a weekly, flexible approach to learning. Children have multiple opportunities for practice and engagement throughout the week.


*NEW* each week! Science plans have a brief lesson plus an extension for those interested in exploring science in more depth. These weekly learning experiences are based on curriculum topics and develop student observation and communication skills.


See links to previous At-Home Learning plans (Grades PreK-Grade 5) for Weeks 1-3 at the bottom of this page.

DreamBox Learning for Grades K-5

As Grade K-5 students get familiar with this online math tool, their goal for this week is to complete at least three DreamBox lessons. Students might complete more than three lessons this week, if desired.


DreamBox Learning recommends that students complete 5+ lessons per week to see the full benefit of the program. We will move toward that goal next week (Week 5: April 26-May 1).

Pre-K students are welcome to explore this tool (provided at no cost with our K-5 subscription) as desired.
