The more that you READ, the more things you will KNOW.

The more that you LEARN, the more places you'll GO!

Day 2

Day three, first week completed.

Independent reading around the room.


Breakout EDU - Back to School Boogie! (school version of an escape room activity - works on collaboration, communication, creative thinking, perseverance...)

Nightly Homework

• Every night students should read at least 30-40 minutes. This could be reading book group books from school, newspapers or magazines, recipes or directions, digital reading, reading to understand other work... As long as students are reading, focused and thinking about what they are reading , that is the best homework they can do. Once reading is completed they may want to jot about it but this is not required nightly.

• Some type of writing is expected. It may be a jot about reading (Tuesdays & Thursdays), it may be an entry in their writing notebook or perhaps a blog post (Mondays & Wednesdays). Although these are first draft writings, care should still be taken to be as neat and correct as possible.

• Math practice with Bridges Workplace games or flashcards. Students should have and maintain automaticity with multiplication and other basic facts.
