    Reading Assignment 1

    Earth

    In celebration of Earth Day and to go along with our CKLA curriculum theme, we are asking that each child create a piece of art made from recyclable materials at home. This “junk” art project can be anything that your child wishes to create (they may need a little adult help). Some ideas for this include; robots, cars, houses, creatures, and much, much more. Please be creative and only use school appropriate materials!  All projects are due on or before May 29.   

    Can’t wait to see their “recycled” creations!

    Social Studies Assignment

    SS.K.A.2.5 – Recognize the importance of U.S. symbols

    This week we will be learning about America Monuments

    Statue of Liberty Podcast: Statue of Liberty Podcast

    Visit Social Studies Weekly 25

    Listen to the article, answer questions in each section to collect the coins.  Take the test at the end.  (The program will show me the score)

    Then take a virtual field trip (either do one or all!!!) Learn about the wonderful monuments we have around our Great Country! 


    Virtual Field trips:

    Inspector Gadget's Virtual Tour 

    Washington D.C. Virtual Field Trip

    A Tour Inside the White House

    Nick the History Kids Visits Mt. Vernon

    Mount Rushmore Virtual Field Trip

    Inspector Gadget's Virtual Field Trip St. Augustine

    I chose this story because it goes with our social studies standard for the last 2 week and this week.  We have read about Celebrating America, Presidents and Patriots, and this week we learn about American Monuments.  Washington DC is full of lots of great monuments.  So sit back and listen to the story about Washington DC and learn about many great places that you can visit in Washington DC and why those places are important.

    Math Assignments

    Math Assignment 1: 

    Unit 12: Describe and Compare Measurable Attributes

    MAFS.K.MD.1.2 – Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.(DOK 2)

    Learning Goal:

    Goal # 1: I can determine which object is longer (or shorter or taller) than the other by comparing them side by side.

    Goal # 2: I can determine which object can hold more (or less) than the other by filling up one of the objects and pouring it into the other one.

    Goal # 3: I can determine which object is heavier (or lighter) by lifting one in one hand and the other in my hand.

    Watch the video: 

     hands2mind taller/shorter

    Now, go around your house and find an object that you can measure the height of.  Remember, that is how tall something is.  Now, use your hands to measure how tall it is.  Then get a parent to use their hands to measure the height of the SAME object.  

    Are the measurements the same?  No...  Why not? As Greg Smedley said in the video your hands and your parent's hands are 2 different sizes! 

    Write it down.  Pick another object or 2 to measure.  Record all of the things you measure.  

    Send a photo to me (707)533-4473 or on ClassDojo

    ******************************************************************************************************************* 

    I have also assigned an iReady lesson for this assignment (Taller/Shorter) which will be available on Monday.

    Goal # 3: I can determine which object is heavier (or lighter) by lifting one in one hand and the other in my hand.

     
    Watch the video on More or Less:  Comparing More or Less

    Then this one on Comparing Capacity 

    Find 2 objects that would hold more and less. 
    Then find 2 objects that hold about the same.  

    Compare the objects by filling each.  Were you correct with the object that holds more?  And the object that holds less?

    How about your 2 objects that are the same?  Were you correct with them?

    Draw a picture or take a photo of your objects.  Label them with more, less, and same (either in your drawing or you can take a photo of the real objects and use an index card or sticky note to label the real objects.  

    Take a photo and send to my email address or phone number. 

    Assignment 3:

    Goal # 3: I can determine which object is heavier (or lighter) by lifting one in one hand and the other in my hand.

    Watch this video on weight:

    Weigh Using a Balance Scale

     Now, go around your house.  Choose 2 objects.  Place them in different hands.  See which weights more and which weighs less.  Draw a picture to show which is heavier and which is lighter.  

    Do this 2 or 3 more times recording each as heavier and lighter.  

    Send your pictures to me at my email address or text your photo to my phone.
