We are on to week 3 of remote learning and I’m really missing all of my students. I would give anything to have our normal back and be heading to the classroom today to see all my students 🙁 I hope everyone is continuing to stay healthy and stay home!
For this week, I have posted the Spelling Words along with a Spelling Word choice board, something your child can choose to help them learn the words. There is one Seesaw Spelling assignment I would like your child to complete, it’s an alphabetical word assignment.
For Writing, I have given different writing prompts for each day and attached the blueprints and instructions for publishing. Monday- your child will focus on Opinion writing, making sure to state their opinion (claim) and back it up with reasons. The rest of the week they will write Narratives, ending the week with a fun Fantasy writing that they can draw, write, and record themselves on Seesaw.
For Math, we are reviewing this week until I put a plan in place to move on to the next Module. I have attached a daily spiral review that you can either print or have your child write the answers and problems on a separate sheet of paper. They should go on Zearn each day as well, if they are ready to move on to module 6, that’s great. If they have not finished the problem sets and videos from Module 5, they can go back to Week 2.
For Reading, I would like your child to spend time on Read Works, reading the various articles that are a focus in Science and Social Studies and answering the question set that follows. I have been checking the short answers daily and returning your child’s score. There are various activities I have added to Seesaw, a fluent reading activity, where your child can pick any book they are reading and practice their fluency by recording themselves and taking a picture of the page. There’s also a storytelling activity where they will draw a picture and tell a story to match. There is a fun Outdoor Scavenger Hunt to get them out on the sunny, warmer days ahead. I love hearing, seeing, and reading their Seesaw posts. It lightens up my day to be able to respond to them. I would like them to log onto I-Ready a few times a week, as this is a great resource to learn and practice our 2nd grade Common Core Reading Standards.
Please remember that this is a suggested schedule, I understand it may not be possible or easy to follow, but please know I’ve been so proud of the learning that I’ve witnessed taking place at home. Thank you again, parents, for your dedication to your child’s education and learning at home.
Reminder- our first Zoom class video chat is this Tuesday at 11am. I cannot wait to see your child!! I am going to try my hardest to stay strong for them, although it will be so emotional for me to see their smiling faces 🙂
Have a great week and as always, I’m here to answer any questions and help you through these tough times.
