Ms. Elsner

Welcome to our gathering space for the next 6 weeks!

I will miss seeing you every weekday! I have put this picture on so we can "see each other" whenever we want to!

I will be posting assignments and due dates on Mondays and Wednesdays. Parents can email me with any questions.

Reading - Please continue to read at least 15 minutes every day. For one book per week students will need to fill out a sheet telling me the title of the book and details for beginning, middle and end. I am sending one home that you can copy and I will provide one weekly with the reading assignments as well.

Math - Students will be working on addition and subtraction facts up to 20, money and time to the hour and half hour. I have sent home their chapter packets on money and time and will assign pages on Monday and Wednesday. I am glad we were on these chapters as I think it will be fairly simple for grownups and older siblings to help with those.

We will also be reviewing place value and addition/subtraction with regrouping. I will be posting 10 facts every Wed to work on. We will be testing on these when we return to school. I will be posting worksheets and games for money, time, place value and regrouping.

Spelling/Sight Words - I will post the spelling words on Monday and sight words on Wednesday. I have sent home 5 different sheets to practice spelling words on. Spelling sentences will be due on Monday when the new words come out. Please practice sight words so we can test on these when we return to school.

Religion - I have sent home 5 chapter packets and will assign one each week. They cover the 3 days, Easter and First Communion.

Writing - I have sent their writing journals home and will be posting a writing prompt on Wednesdays for them to write about. They may also write stories on their own in them. Some students have post its with corrections on the story we were working on, they can correct those.

Science - We were just about to start our unit on Diverse Ecosystems. I am working on some habitat lessons and will be posting those with assignments as soon as they are ready.

Please feel free to email me with any questions I will be checking email every morning and afternoon. We will get through this together!
