Preschool & Kindergarten

I hope you had a great first week on continuous learning! I absolutely loved seeing you in our new online classroom last week. 

Online Meeting-PreK will meet online at 11:30am Monday and Wednesday this week. Reminder: there is No School Friday/Monday April 10-13th. Check your email for classroom invites. I sent one for Monday and one for Wednesday on Saturday the 4th.

Story Time:  I will be offering a story time each evening at 6pm for Pre K on Facebook Live. Remember, you can watch these at your convenience. Parents, please help the students comment a sentence or two what they thought of the story time.

Student and Teacher Meetings:  It was so Great to see each of you online this week! You brought a smile to my day. I would like to video chat with each student at least once a week. At this time, I will answer any questions you may have about school, assess skills and listen to the students sing, count, etc.

Facebook Group:  I ask that each parent help their child participate so I can assess knowledge through Facebook Private Group Posts. Parents can help students post pictures and short videos of assignments (students doing and explaining their work.)  Explaining your work is the highest level of learning. So, even if you snap a picture, please let students tell you a few sentences about what they did and what they learned. Pictures and short videos should be placed in the comments of the teacher posted assignment for the week on the Facebook Group. Please allow students to check out each others work on the post in the comments and "like" / comment on their classmates work. This shows participation.

Office Hours:  I will be available to answer questions and visit between the hours of 11am-2pm & 5-6:30pm. Monday through Friday. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need prayers, have a question, or concern.

Online Math Learning Sites:  I will share my favorites and would like your child to work on math and reading skills online at least 10 minutes a day. Monday through Friday.

www.starfall.com  PreK (Letter, sound recognition, building CVC words)
www.storylineonline.net  (story time, building vocabulary and fluency)

Virtual Field Trips/Videos: I will be posting a virtual field trip that goes with the weekly theme.  Please have students watch and comment on what they thought.

Bubbles/ Construction Paper/ Materials:  These can be played with. Pre K parents-please use flashcards daily to play games using letter/number recognition.

Theme & Assignments for April 27:

Post assignments on Facebook site under Teacher Post.

You are all in my continued prayers as we continue to shelter in place. May we rest easy knowing He made us and that He is with us during these times.  I pray He wraps you in His loving arms and continues to give you good health, comfort and peace.

Grades 1 & 2

First Graders

Hello Parents & Students,

I hope you all are feeling happy while looking to God for guidance. I am praying for all of you to be happy and healthy.  

Memorization-  I As we look towards the future with hope, we are preparing for our next Chapel gathering. To do this, we are to memorize a verse of the hymn "Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness."  I am providing a copy of this verse in your packet. So, get familiar with this verse so we can sing it loudly!  We will work on this in our video chats as well.

Devotions-  This week I am sending a daily devotional to read. As you read these together I hope you find them helpful to begin the day with. 

Reading-  I The story you will be reading is a biography, "Ben Franklin and His First Kite."  I A biography sometimes tells about only a small part of a person's life.
You will begin reading on p. 170-Ideas That Changed the World. Read through pages 201.  After reading about inventions and experiments, what could you imagine inventing with only recycled materials?

Please write to me about what you can imagine you would make.  This could be fun! 

Look and read p. 198. While you read this week, ask yourself, what is it that we are reading about?  This is called the theme of the story?

It is always good to ask questions about what you're reading so that you are sure you understand it to the best of your ability. Get your questions answered by asking someone for clarification or turning back a few pages to reread a section.

Reading Test-  Your reading test is included.

Decodable-  Reader 59 and 60 will have the phonics you are working with. Please read these. Color them too if you would like!!

Practice Pages- Work through pages 173-180 during the week.

Spelling-  I Write your spelling words correctly with a sentence for each word, and turn that in to me. First, look at your words. Next, say the words. Then, spell the word out loud. Then you will be ready to write them as neatly as you can. Always, always do your best writing!!

Phonics-  Pages 117-120.  I Do these throughout the week. Your spelling words are on the first page. Your phonics you will study this week are:  prefixes, “un”, “re” and long vowels “i”, and “o”.  

Math-  Do pages 437-452 throughout the week. 

Practice Pages: Do 207-210 throughout the week.

The Classroom Book-  I This week while I'm checking your writing page for the book, I want you to practice your coloring for the other page that is across from your writing page. Your art will reflect what you wrote about. Practice this and turn it in to me. Use markers. If you need art supplies let me know. Next wee I will give you the real book page to color. If you are still working on your writing page you must work on this as well. This is to show your best work!  I am so excited!  Malena said I should do one too!  What do you think?  This will be your special project this week.

Science- I sent you a link for a weather lesson in your email. You may check this out if you would like to learn about spring and summer weather and how to prepare for them.

English-  This week in video chat, we can do p. 46 together, so have your English book and your pencil. Our video chat will be Tuesday at 6:15pm.

First Grade Spelling Words-April 27

 

Thank you for all of your hard work.  You are becoming so smart.  We all must continue to learn!  Learning is fun!!  God is with us!   Keep your faith in your heart and mind.  Have hope to look ahead with.  Share love with one another as Jesus taught us.  May you all have the peace that only God can give.

Sherry Pugmire

Second Graders

Dear Parents and Students,

I am in hopes that you all are happy and healthy.  I continue to pray for you, your families, and your pets.  Our next video chat will be Tuesday April 28, at 6:15 pm.

Devotions-  I am including a daily devotional for you and your family.  We always enjoyed beginning our day with these.  I hope you will be inspired by them.

Memorize-  To prepare for our next Chapel gathering (date unknown presently) we are to practice memorizing the 2nd verse to the hymn “Praise The One Who Breaks The Darkness”.  I have this provided for you in your packet.  We will practice this on video chat Tuesday at 6:15 pm as well.

Reading- Let’s ask ourselves these questions: (verbally)

Why are sports important in our country? 

What does our flag mean?

Why are family celebrations special?

Why should we learn about cowboys?  

We have traditions and celebrations that we do as cultures and a nation.  This keeps us true to who we are and where our past families (descendants) came from.  This helps us to retain knowledge about ourselves and it helps us to feel better about who we are when we celebrate these traditions.

Read pgs. 408-411.  On “Write to Read”  Answer #2 on paper.

You will be reading the realistic fiction,” The Jingle Dancer” on p.412-427.

I want you to be aware of 3 things: the characters, the setting (where the story is), and how the story begins, what happens in the middle, and finally how it ends.  This sequence of events is called the plot.

Read pgs. 428-431 as well.

Reading Test-  Your reading test is provided.  

Practice Pages-143-150.  Do these throughout the week.

Phonics-  Do pgs.117-120 throughout the week.  Your spelling words are on the first page.  Your phonics that you will be studying are the prefixes,”mis” and “mid”.  

Decodable-  If you have a decodable Reader 30, this one has the phonic prefixes that match your spelling words.  Please read this.

Spelling Words-  First look at your words, then read your words, then spell your words, then you are ready to write your words.  Write me a sentence as neatly as you can for each spelling word.  If you would like to try you may write your sentences in cursive!  I know some of you have been working very steadily on learning your cursive.  Do a nice job.  Sit up straight, slant your paper, feet flat on the floor.  You will do great!  I can see you from here!  

Math-  You are finishing up measuring with centimeters and meters.  You will begin making “tally marks”.  Tally marks are a way to count things.  A tally is a mark that looks like this “ l ” and it = 1. You stand them up together then after you have 4 tally marks you cross over all 4 with a slanted tally mark  to indicate that you have 5.  Do pgs. 460-470  throughout the week.  

Practice Pages- Do these pages 223-224 throughout the week. 

Your classroom book-  This week while I’m checking your writing page for the book, I want you to practice what you will color for the other page which will sit across from your writing page.  Your art will reflect what you wrote about.  Practice this and turn it in to me.  Use markers.  If you need art supplies let me know.  Next week I will give you the real book page to color.  If you are still working on your writing page you must work on this as well.  This is to show your best work!  I am so excited!  Malena said I should do one too!  What do you think?  This will be your special project this week.  Turn these into me so we can begin correcting them.

Science-  I sent you a link for a weather lesson in your email.  You may check this out if you would like to learn about spring and summer weather and how to prepare for them. 

English-There are a couple of you that did not write me a letter.  This is a lesson I was hoping to put in the grade book.  Please write me a letter if you have not.  Bring your English book to the video chat Tuesday at 6:15 pm and we will go over fragments and sentences together with 1st grade.  Then you can complete page 34.  Some of you may not need any help but if you do you can always call me and I would love to help you!  

Thank you for your hard work.  You all are growing and getting so smart.  That’s what we want.  Look to Jesus and pray daily.  He will always be there for us when we reach out to Him.  Draw near to God and He will draw near you, James 4:8.  Remember, I’m just on the other end of the telephone line.

May your family have the peace that comes from God.

Grades 5 & 6

Welcome to another week!  This is still a little strange to me, but together we will get through this rather difficult time!
 

First, I have a very special request of each of you.  I want to know your thoughts on this whole coronavirus pandemic that we are all experiencing.  I would like for you to tell me how you feel about it in a paragraph or two (or as much as you need to write).  Please use your laptops or chromebooks to write this assignment and send it to my email account.  marks@trinitylutheranwinfield.org.  I am curious to read your thoughts.  I have also written my thoughts about it and I have sent them to your emails.

Religion:  Complete lessons 79 and 80 and take the unit 7 test.  Again,  I realize that the instructions for completing these are not always very clear.  Simply do the very best you can, and let me know by telephone or email if you have any questions that I may help you with.  On the test you may use your religion books, Bibles, or any other resources that may help you.  Following the completion of the test, please do lesson 81 “Who is My Neighbor?”
