Reading Pre-K: Name different jobs people can have. Identify the beginning sounds of each job. Kindergarten: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soKRa6D90WQ - This is the link to the read aloud Career Day on YouTube. Listen to the story with an adult or friend and talk about the different jobs people can have. Talk about what you want to be when you grow up. 1st & 2nd grade: If you have Internet, search an occupation (job) that you would like to have when you grow up. Read about this job (on EPIC or watch a read aloud book on youtube) and list 5 important things this person does on their job. If you don’t have Internet access, ask a grown up about a job and list 5 important things that person does. 3rd and 4th grade: Log onto EPIC and search for a non-fiction book that is about what you would like to do when you grow up. For example: If I wanted to be a nurse when I grow up, then I would type “nurse” into the search bar on EPIC and select the “non-fiction” button. Then, select which book that you want to read! 5th & 6th Grade: Log into Epic! and search for books on what you would like to be when you grow up! There are tons of books to choose from! #WeirExcellenceShines

Thursday, April 23: MATH Pre-K: Draw dots on flashcards or on a small piece of paper. Write a number on another flashcard or small piece of paper. Do this for numbers 0-20. Have students match dots to numbers. Kindergarten: Let’s work on patterns! Draw flowers and make patterns. For example: red flower, blue flower, green flower, red flower, blue flower, green flower. That’s an ABC pattern. See how many patterns you can make. 1st: Do you have flowers outside, maybe ones in a flower pot or small plants (not bushes). Let’s see how tall they are - using a pencil. See if you can find a plant that is just a pencil tall. Then tape two pencils together and see if you can find one 2 pencils tall. Maybe you have crayons - you can do the same thing... Let me know what you find Math Detectives - send me an email with your plant measurement photos, so we can post a picture on class dojo. 2nd: Using items from outside, like rocks or sticks and make something that is symmetrical on both sides like a butterfly, a person, or a flower (or whatever is in your imagination), and second, make something that is not symmetrical and tell your parents the difference between the two. Please send your photos of your artwork to my email, so we can share them on Class Dojo with your class. 3rd: Create your own bar graph using plants you find in your yard! Use a scale counting by 1’s. You should label your plants using yellow flowers, roses, white flowers, honey suckles, etc. You create your bar graph however you would like. Once you have completed your bar graph, write at least 3 questions that can be asked about the bar graph. You should be able to use your bar graph to answer the questions. I would love to see pictures of your completed bar graph and questions. You could send them to me through class dojo. 4th: Create your own line plot! Remember, “X MARKS THE SPOT ON THE LINE PLOT!!”. Go outside and pick 15 - 20 flowers in your yard. If you can’t find that many flowers, you can use sticks. Get creative. Use a ruler or a tape measure to measure each flower you pick to the nearest quarter inch! Place your data on a piece of paper and then use it to create your line plot! Once you’ve completed your line plot, write at least three questions about your line plot. Make sure you are able to use the line plot to answer the questions you write. I would love to see pictures of your completed line plot! You can send them to me on class dojo! 5th: Measurement Garden-You’ll need the following supplies-garden seed packets (4-5, if possible make one type Sunflowers), yarn, ruler, tape measure, scissors, small plastic bags, construction paper, glue stick/pen, and tape. Let’s get started- write the name of each plant and it’s height they will reach (look on the back of the packets) on a plastic bag and put a couple of the seeds inside of the bag. Measure a piece of string the size stated on each seed bag. Tape the string to the matching labeled plastic bag. Continue until all the plants have a bag. Tape your strings to the wall and make some paper crafts of each plant to put next to it. Do you notice anything about the size of the seed compared to its ending height? Take your final heights and do some measurement conversions. Change feet to inches and vice versa. Do the same type conversions using metric units. Did any of the plants have a higher/shorter height than you? If so by how much or less? Hope you enjoy it! Send pictures please. 6th: Measurement Garden-You’ll need the following supplies-garden seed packets (4-5, if possible make one type Sunflowers), yarn, ruler, tape measure, scissors, small plastic bags, construction paper, glue stick/pen, and tape.

​​Thank you TVA and 4County for the STEM Grant we appreciate all of the wonderful STEM activities we were able to order. https://youtu.be/fNSrN8y4Qu4 This is a STEM Activity - not an actual experiment - this is designed for lower elementary, but this can be adapted for older students - if they want to help younger brothers and sisters. How do animals disperse seeds? Supplies: Sock(s), Tape (whatever you have), cottonballs, and something to measure with That was one way animals disperse seeds - can you think of another way? What about birds? How do they help plants? Have a great day!
