Lesson Plans: March 16-20Posted by Emily Hamner on 3/19/2020Monday:I already sent info about what to do today, so please refer to my e-mail from FridayTuesday:Math-- Complete Pearson Lesson 7-1 (Pearson Easy Bridge)Reading-- Finish reading a nonfiction book and pass an AR test. Then find the Fantasy Book Club sheet in the reading part of the packet I sent home. Students should begin the fantasy book club work by marking quadrants in their book and then write about the blurb. Then they can begin reading.Writing-- Find the Mystery Short Story packet in the Writing section of the large packet I sent home. Students should read carefully and then complete both sides of the Brainstorm and Pre-Write page (the first page in the packet)Social Studies--Have students look in the social studies section of the packet I sent home and find the New England Colony packet. In our Google Classroom I have posted a powerpoint that will walk them through this work. There is are three videos embedded in the powerpoint. To access them, just click on the image on the powerpoint page. One is a teaching video and the other two are song parodies. Students will have two days for this New England work.Wednesday:Math-- Pearson Lesson 7-2 (on Pearson Easy Bridge), Khan Academy Lesson (on google classroom)Reading--Continue working on the fantasy book club book. Students should be reading about 1/2 of a quadrant per day. There are instructions at the bottom of the handout that remind them what to keep track of as they read.Writing--Read through the pages of the short story writing packet "5 Great Beginnings," "Story Rising Action & Climax," and "Story Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution". Then work on completing the large 12x18 Plot Chart. There is an example of this in a second writing packet called "The Case of the Charley Cheetah Theft" This second packet has an example story that is of similar length to the ones I hope the kids will write.
