SCIENCE

Frome Mrs. Eustice.

 

Mystery science offers free access to short mini lessons we will be using weekly.

Please support your scientist, by viewing and discussing the selected mini lessons throughout the weeks we are out of school.

We also will be using BrainPop. Their site states, “Recognizing the enormous impact this situation has on a school community, we are offering free, unlimited use of BrainPOP to any school, anywhere, that is closed due to the coronavirus during the period of their closure.” Log in to any of the BrainPOP sites: BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr, BrainPOP ELL, BrainPOP Français + Español At home users, visit our getting started guide to learn more about using BrainPOP at home. Log in is: studentcc and Password is: 1countryclub

I will also try to have a TWIG Review Activity each week that will be viewable in the body of this document.

Official News about our online learning.

Reading-  This week's assignments have returned to NON-Fiction.  The link to Google Applied Digital: Annotate a Digital Document is teaching the students how to annotate.  It is a skill that does not get enough attention in the classroom, yet is important in helping students gain deep understanding of written material.  So, we have 3 days of concentrated practice on this skill for reading this week.

 

On Friday, students can enjoy a chapter book of their choice and then give a written response in an online Reading Response Log.

 

Writing-  Literary Essay is the curriculum we were working on when school was canceled .  This is a standard 5 paragraph essay.  However, during this time of review I have opted to return to writing a narrative.  Many students find this fun, others find it very difficult to flesh out the details using specific vocabulary, strong verbs to portray the exact action, and zooming in on one small moment in time.   

 

This week we will continue the writing we began last week, personal narrative about a vacation.  This is work we did at the beginning of the year.  We will continue to work on this story writing activity for a few more days working through the writing process: plan, draft, revise, edit, publish. Students are asked to publish their work by creating of Flipgrip video of them reading their narrative to the camera.

 

Math- Students are set up in Zearn.org, Dreambox, and have 3 packets of math review to work on over the next couple of weeks. Tuesday's assignment also asks them to sign into Khan Academey.  Please have your student work on math 5 days a week for about 45 minutes a day.

 

Science:  Mystery Science:  mysteryscience.com/school-closure-planning is our go-to while we are remote learning.  Students will also be asked to access lessons in Brian Pop.  The user id and password for access are in the Notes Section of this webpage and in the Week1 Remote Learning Plan.

 

 

FYI, participation in this program is not mandatory, however, I strongly encourage each student to join in to stay academically active.  The "official" start date to this program is Tuesday, March 24th.  I will send out an e-mail asking for an immediate "roll call" response on Monday, March 23rd to ensure that all my families are receiving this information.  I'll continue to reach out to those that I haven't heard from to make sure that all my students are on track. 

 

Note that academic work is not assigned  or expected during Spring Break (4/6-10).  

Finally, please tell all of my munchkins that I think of them daily and miss them so much!  Please have them feel free to e-mail (rtishle@srvusd.net) or text (925-518-0308) me with updates about their lives and/or any questions that they may have.  Grown-ups- please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.  Together we'll get through this craziness and hopefully see each other on April 13th!  Now.....everybody go wash your hands!!!! :)
