Good afternoon Husky families,
It is my sincere hope that all of you are safe and dry! There is uncertainity regarding when our school will reopen. For the time being I have provided a number of academic options for students to work on until further notice. For those families who are impacted by the flooding in one way or another your priorities will be with family and friends. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
1) Please continue to have students read for 20-25 minutes. I have been encouraging students and family members to read aloud to one another. After a reasonable time please check in with your child and check for understanding. We are focussing on inferrencing. Questions such as
From the title/heading, you can predict that the text will be about …..? Why do you think …..?
Why did …..? How do you know that …..? What might happen if …..?
What can you infer from the picture on the page? Why do they …..? How do you know?
Do you think …..? Why do you think that? Why does the author use the word …..?
What is the author implying?/What message is the author trying to give?
2) For Math Practice, I would encourage parents to sign onto Studyladder.ca. It's a free site. Please press view all resources. Students are encouraged to practice addition/subtraction of 2, 3, 4 digit numbers. Please examine decimals -converting fractions to decimals 10ths, 100ths, and for grade 5, 1000.
3) Students are encouraged to write a short piece about their experiences over the last number of days.
