• Assignment Sheet for the Week of June 8-12, 2020 WEEK 9

    Here are some things to do at home if you are not able to be on Google Classroom.

    If your child is working at home, just not using Google Classroom, please send me an email at chismkl@mukilteo.wednet.edu so I know. I can check Raz kids and Moby max. ATTENDANCE IS TAKEN EACH WEEK.

    1. READING- Read 20 minutes every day! Read a variety of fiction and nonfiction books. Use Raz kids! These books are leveled for EACH student! The more they read and test, the higher they can go! This is something they CAN do on their own. Read out loud. Read silently. Read a poem. Read the words to your favorite song. Print out the words and follow along as someone is singing or reading. See if you can notice 1-2 words that you don’t know. Look them up and write them in your vocabulary journal. THIS WEEK: We are working on finding the authors message. The message would be WHAT the author is trying to teach you. There can be MANY messages in each book. This week we also added “karate” and “museum” to our vocabulary books.


    1. MATH- THIS WEEK: Do pages 301-308 in the student math book. This is a new Unit: Arrays (equal groups) and equal shares (think sharing a pizza). We are also practicing skip counting equal groups. Do Moby Max! The MATH tab is leveled and the teaching is for EACH student! This is something they CAN do on their own. Work on flash cards! 1-20 facts need to be automatic by the end of second grade. Work on your Rise and Shine folder daily. Make up math problems and solve them. Play a math game with your family. Count aloud by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. Count coins. Play store in your house and “buy” things to see if you have enough.


    1. WRITING- Write something every day- about 10 minutes! THIS WEEK: We are learning about formatting a letter and writing a letter. We are writing a letter to someone in your HOME. We are choosing someone in our home because next week we are going to be answering their letter back! Try to start each sentence with a capital and end with a period. Look up words you don’t know and spell them correctly. Write about someone- either a person or a pet and use lots of adjectives. Adjectives are describing words. The young boy had black hair and green eyes. Young, black, and green are all adjectives. See if you can describe someone or something without naming it and see if someone can guess. Example: This is cold and sweet. It can taste creamy or salty. It can have big chunks of chocolate or cookie dough in it. It can be made of fresh strawberries or raspberries. It is yummy for dessert. (ICE CREAM)


    1. SCIENCE- We are learning about Bees and how important they are! If you are curious and want to learn more information about bees… Google search some insect videos. Use kids national geographic and read some information about bees.
