• Good Morning!

    Our week is going to look a bit different. First, the only assignments you will have are math assignments and special. Below, you will find four separate math lessons that you can complete throughout the week. I would recommend one per day. Once you finish the math lessons or whenever you have some down time, you can work on: previous incomplete lessons from the past two weeks (which will also be listed below), find a spot inside or outside to enjoy reading, or find something else fun and educational to do! Have a wonderful week 6Z!

    I miss seeing you all! I decided that I want to start each day with a positive quote! 

    "TRUST YOURSELF. YOU KNOW MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU DO."

     

    PLEASE CHECK YOUR E-MAIL FOR SOME UPDATES ABOUT WEEK 3!

     

     

    ** Before you begin writing in your notebook, please divide the notebook into 4 sections. One section for each subject: social studies, math, writing, and reading.

     

    If you have a teacher other than Miss Zeleznik for math, please go to that teacher's webpage to see your math assignment.

     

    You should access a specialists page on the day that you have their special. Here are links to our specialists and school webpages:

    Tasks:

    • You are going to write a Cinquain poem today. It is the second poem in your Poetry Packet. This writing packet is in your “Distance Learning” folder.
    • Begin by analyzing the Cinquain mentor text on page 13; it includes four examples of Cinquain poems. While you read these poems, think about the question, “What do you notice?”  Annotate, highlight, or note any characteristics that you think are important.
    • After you interacted with the mentor text, complete the “Looking at Cinquains” activity on page 16. This will help you to get a better understanding of Cinquains.  If you are having trouble figuring out syllables, place your hand under your chin when you speak.  Each time that your chin taps your hand, is one syllable.  For example, the word “write” is one syllable because your chin taps your hand once while saying the word, and the word “Cinquain” is two syllables is because your chin taps your hand twice when saying it. 
    • Next select a topic to write about. Cinquains are usually scenes in nature, but they can be about other topics.  Complete the organizer on page 17.  The organizer will help you to draft your poem.
    • Then, write the draft of your poem on the Cinquain paper. Keep in mind that a Cinquain is 5 lines and has the following pattern: In, total the poem should be 22 syllables, line 1 is two syllables, line 2 is four syllables, line 3 is six syllables, line 4 is eight syllables, and line 5 is two syllables.
    • After the draft is written, reflect on your draft by completing “Looking at Your Draft” on page 18. If after this reflection, you feel like you are missing something, go back and revise. If you believe you included all of the requirements, re-read your draft to look for correct conventions.  For this poem, you do NOT need to start each line with an uppercase letter.  Only the first line should start with an uppercase letter.  It should read like a sentence and end with the correct end punctuation. 
    • When finished, you should have all of pages 13, 16, 17, draft paper for Cinquain, and 18 completed. Put your Poetry Packet back in your folder
    • If any time remains, you can draft a second Cinquain or free write about a topic of interest.

    Time: Approximately 40 minutes

      

    Explanation: Today, you will create a set of number cards. You will also develop and set-up your daily tracking and graphing chart. This chart will be a collection device for daily temperatures.  

      

    Things to Know:

    • When creating a chart, remember to include a chart title, x-axis title, y-axis title, and numbers to locate coordinate points.
    • The daily temperature can be found in many places.  Be sure to get a parent/guardian’s permission before accessing a place to view the daily temperature. 
    • Please visit https://www.cbsd.org/Page/1511 to access tutorial videos related to accessing online Math in Focus resources.
    • If you do not have the supplied worksheets for this day, it is fine to create your own in the notebook I gave you.

     

    Tasks:

    • Create a set of number cards.  
      • These cards will be used for various activities, so save them from day to day.  
      • Using the math packet you were given on Wednesday, rip off the front page with the number cards 0-9. If you do not have this packet, you can use notecards, rip paper, or post-its and write one digit (0-9) on each. If you have the packet, cut out each number card.
      • Keep the number cards in a safe spot for now. They will be used for other lessons.

You are going to use this to track the high temperature for multiple days. If you do not have this, create a coordinate grid using paper or search for a blank one from an online search engine (with parent’s permission).
      • On the chart, write the following information: a chart title, x-axis title, y-axis title, and numbers to locate coordinate points for each day.
      • Once your temperature chart is created, graph the high temperature for today.
        • Remember to have your parent’s permission before accessing a place to view the daily temperature.
        • You will complete this activity each day so keep this chart in a safe place.
      • Computation Packet
