Campus is closed.

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.

 

For Reading:

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.

Ex: 

  • Animals
  • People
  • Sports
  • Science Topics
  • Places

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:

 

Book Marks

 

HMH Anchor Chart - Research Questions

 

For Writing: 

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.

 

For Math:

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:

Unit 8 Problem Solving Handout

 

They can also play any of the math links via their google classroom.

 

For Science:

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.

 

F.Y.I.:

Free meals for students this Tuesday and Wednesday...pick up at  Tomball Highschool from 8 to 11.

Friday, February 28th, we will be celebrating "Go Texan Day!" at Wildwood. Please encourage your child to dig out his/her favorite hat, jeans, scarf, western shirt, or skirt! (no fake guns or spurs please) I am looking forward to seeing all the little cowgirls and cowboys ready for the big day...YEE-HAW!!!

Field Day

I wanted to give you some information regarding field day. 


Field day is split into two times. 

Here is the schedule:

9am-11am Field Day Activities 

11am-12:50 Lunch/Classroom

*It will be a sack lunch day from the cafeteria. 

1pm-3pm Field Day Activities 

3pm-3:45pm Classroom


Parents are more than welcome to join us for one or both of the field day times. We ask that you enter and exit through the back gate by the portables instead of coming to the front office. If you would like to be here for both field day times, you will have to leave from 11-1 as we cannot accommodate everyone for lunch.


*To find us in the morning we will be starting at station number #11 (Potato Sack Relay) East Side and in the afternoon we will be starting at station #11 (Spring Break Dash) West Side


*Please make sure you send a water bottle with your child that has his/her name on it.

 

*We will be sending a note home about either buying a sack lunch or bringing a lunch from home. If your child is bringing lunch from home, please try to put it in a disposable bag. 

 

*Your child will not need to bring a backpack on Friday, March 6th. 


When you are ready to leave we will be going back to the "old" check out system that we've done in the past. I will have tickets and a sign out sheet. You can take your child home at any point during the morning or afternoon field day times as long as you sign out with me and get a ticket.


Lastly, if you ordered a field day shirt for your child, it should be delivered to school next week.  I will send it home once we receive them. Please remember to wear them on Friday! If you did not order a shirt, your child can wear a yellow shirt to match us.

 

If you have any questions please let me know!
