Sight word:


Make it, trace it and circle it! See below:


Finish this sentence stem on a piece of paper.

“My mom is…..”

Don’t forget to divide your paper in half so you have space for the story and space for your illustration. Things also to remember: 2 finger spaces between words, punctuation, and your illustration should have characters and a setting.


Keep counting! Count by 1’s, 5’s, 10’s and 2’s

Hello Y5 Families,

Here are some resources for today. Remember that everything posted on the blog and in Google Classroom is a resource centered around topics we would be learning if we were in school. DO NOT BE OVERWHELMED. The most important thing is the health and well-being of your family.

Sight Word Practice:

Instead of a new “little book” for your reading bag practicing the word “is”, try reading these sentences. You can print them and circle the word “is” or you can just read them off the computer screen. Remember to use your reading finger!

Here are some more sentences to practice reading using the previous sight words we’ve learned:

Word Work:

At our “word work” station in class we were stamping the -ending sound of a word. Try this:


Not exactly the number bonds we were using in class, but we were practicing writing out the addition sentence:
