These are difficult times and I know you are doing your best to help your child. On Monday I will be posting new lessons on my Holman page. I am available to call you between the hours of 8:00-2:00. Email me to set up a time.
The estimated time for doing daily lessons is 1-½ - 2 hours. It includes doing some exercise.
There is a reading assignment and writing. We are not doing spelling for now, but all of this year’s lists are available for optional practice games on Spelling City. There is also Science & Social Studies. You will see links posted in my lessons.
I am repeating two of the math lessons that we did the last week we were in school. Then there will be a review & online test. We have done practice tests online in class so the children are familiar with it. On day 5 (4/3) we will start Topic 11: subtract within 1,000. This will be similar to subtract to 100. They are familiar with the strategies in this topic. For the math lesson: login to pearson easyBridge. I will have assigned a video to watch. There will be 2 pages to complete, which can be printed out. Then they will do the quick check (assigned) online which I will be able to see. The quick check shows the students if they need more practice.
There are lots of optional links on my page.
Thank you for your support!
