At Home Learning Ideas
for the Week of March 16th-20th
If you would like your child to have some learning options for this week, here are some suggestions. Please also note that your child can log into their google classroom account to play math games and read free books online via Myon as well. These are just suggestions for this week. Please only use it if you would like to. As we get more information about the next few weeks and expectations, I will update you further.
Before the break, we had been using the kid friendly search engines, Pebble Go and Kiddle (via our Clever log in), to browse a variety of topics of interest. You could have your child revisit their topics of interest and select one of the topics to research further.
- Science Topics
Then, have your child generate a list of at least 7 questions that will help them have a better idea of important points to research. Ideas for helping your child write “thick” questions versus “thin” questions:
We were working on expert writing before the break. Students select a topic that they know a lot about, and write about what they know. First have your child make a list of things they know a lot about or they know how to do well...
Then, have your child select one of their topics and write an essay about something they know how to do well. Have them edit their essay for capitalization and punctuation. They can also draw and color a picture demonstrating their topic.
We had just assessed our unit of adding/subtracting 2 digit numbers with regrouping and/or borrowing embedded in word problems.
Students can work on this handout linked below:
They can also play any of the math links via their google classroom.
We were discussing the weather and how it is studied. Your child can create and keep a daily diary of the weather and also note the phases of the moon.
For Social Studies:
We were discussing U.S. symbols and landmarks. Students could research one of the symbols/landmarks discussed, and write 5-6 sentences about what they learned and draw or create a display of it.
Free meals for students this Tuesday and Wednesday...pick up at Tomball Highschool from 8 to 11.
