    DAY 2

    Why do babies laugh out loud? - BBC Future

    Happy National Let's Laugh Day! It’s never good to be serious all the time and letting the laughter bubble up from time to time is good for all of us.  Laughter IS the best medicine.  Take it easy today and do what you can. 

    Did you have your corn beef and cabbage?  I hope that yesterday went well and you are starting to get into  your routine or schedule.  My Bryce and Lucas have started the their new routine and let me tell you, they are finding it hard but fun. It will take a few days to get into the swing of things.  Be patient.   Also, please keep on sending me pictures of you working hard!  (email, Fligrid, Padlet, Seesaw).  I do want to try out Padlet and Flipgrid.  Get on and try it out! 

    Here is your assignment for today:  Remember you can do the suggested lesson below or pick an activity from your choice menu.  You decide!  For my math students, please try to work on tasks from the math lesson below. I will also be emailing my math kiddos a math worksheet each night, to correspond to the day's lesson. ENJOY!

Letter writing: I want you to write a friendly letter to someone.  You can differentiate this writing assignment by writing as little as one paragraph (3 sentences) to many paragraphs.  Remember to use good sentence writing skills like capitals and periods.  Try to be creative with this and write to a friend, a teacher or even relative that you might be missing right now.  Draw a picture on the bottom and send it their way!  I promise it will brighten their day!

    Dear Mrs. Carter, 

         Happy Wednesday!  We made it to the middle of the week.  This distance learning stuff has been exciting.  I spent a few days learning about many new things like Blackboard, Flipgrid and Freckle.  Did you use those cool websites, when you were a teacher?  I bet you did some amazing things with your students. 

         I also wanted to write to you about planting ideas.  Do you have a garden?  I am planning on planting some bulbs in the front of my house, but I don't know what type of bulb to plant.  Those darn deer come and eat my plants every year.  I did hear that if put Ivory soap on the outer edge of your beds, they will stay away.  I do love watching deer on my property, but they do some damage.  I saw a picture of you on Twitter the other day, and it seemed that you live near woods, too!  

        I would love to hear how you are doing and get some good ideas on what to plant and how to keep the deer away.  I can't wait to see you at school again in a few weeks.  Please keep in touch.

                                                                                                    Sincerely, 

                                                                                                   Joanne McGough 

     

    2. Freckle: I have assigned you some spelling and language arts tasks.  Go check it out.  https://student.freckle.com/#/login  Classcode: MCGOUK  and your name is just your first name and last intial.   Ex.  Joanne M

    3. Daily writing task:  If you want to keep it simple, just write about today's writing prompt of the day: https://www.theteacherscorner.net/daily-writing-prompts/march/Mar18a.pdf

    How is this assignment turned in to the teacher:  Send it to me! Take a picture or wait or wait and turn it in once school resumes.
