Parents and Students,
I hope you are all doing well! Kiddos, I miss you all, and I'm sending great big hugs your way!
Below you will find links to sites that you can use to work on topics for science and social studies. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Enter the class code txm6892. Then find your name. I have set up two assignments--one for science and one for social studies. These are not for a grade but each contains several different books on topics we've either covered in class or I felt kids may be interested in. Using my class code, you will be able to access these books and many more Monday-Friday during normal school hours. Parents, there is an option for you to create a home account, but I'm not sure how much it costs monthly. With my account, you will have free access through the end of June.
Select science or social studies, fourth grade, then click on "See all skills." Students can complete work each day on a topic of their choosing. Many of the available topics have been covered in class. There is a restriction on how many free questions they can work on. Otherwise, you will need to set up an account.

- COVID-19: Online Learning Tools for your Students:
Please review the basics of what we have learned so far this year, and what we would be doing if we were in school now.
- all letter sounds for basic letters a-z
- the sounds made by the digraphs; qu, th, sh, ch, ng
- "tricky words" a, of, the, all,
The rest of this unit's tricky words are: one, from, was
We would also teach double consonants like miss, buzz, Bill, duck, stuff, etc...
With that being said, they should be able to read any words that follow the pattern "Cvc" which means consonant-vowel-consonant, where the vowel sound is "short "
Having your child read is extremely important!! I think it would be a great idea for your child to write words you call out!!
We would be beginning to write simple sentences and write stories which they would illustrate.
Ex. The red dog runs. Please remind your child that every sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with an end Mark.
In math, they can practice counting to 100 by 1's, 5's, and 10's. They can practicing adding and subtracting with sums to 10.
We were beginning to read a click to hour and half hour. We were taking apart a number into smaller numbers. Ex: 7 and 3 are partners for 10.
Khan Academy is a good place to start. Other Apps we use in class are starfall, pbskids.org, gonoodle.com, and draw and tell.
Miss all of my precious students!! Please stay safe and hope to see you very soon!!❤️🥰😍

Mrs. Campbell’s 5th grade Science & Social Studies classes:
I hope this finds everyone staying safe, healthy, and enjoying some family time! I miss all of you and I’m looking forward to being able to return to school!
The resources listed below are OPTIONAL. The following resources provide students with a summary or review of the information that 5th grade students are taught throughout the “entire academic year” in Science. So please do not stress about having to know ALL of this!
- Module 1: Matter
- Module 2: Ecosystems
The two links above are videos about the two modules that we have discussed in class. (We did not get to cover all parts of Module 2 because we started reviewing for the LEAP assessment).
- The link below is the website to go to for access to ALL the PhD Science Modules that have been released thus far. We haven’t started on Modules 3: (Earth’s Systems) and Module 4: (Orbit & Rotation) in class yet, but the students are welcome to watch these videos after viewing the Module 1 & 2 videos.
Once you click on the website above, your students can watch the videos of Module 3 & 4 at their own pace. There is an additional link towards the bottom of that page called “Family Tip Sheet,” this is an additional resource offered to parents for each Module. This link gives a summary of that Module along with options of ongoing conversations to have at home, other websites, suggested activities, and books that go along with the content of each Module.
5th Grade Social Studies:
Optional Social Studies Assignment: For those students INTERESTED in doing so, (again optional), you can have them decorate the cover of a notebook and create their very own COVID-19 journal/diary. This is something that they could choose to do as often as they want to (daily, weekly, etc.) They can create and decorate a notebook, or something available at home, and use this as their journal. This journal will later become a primary source of COVID-19 history. Some guided questions that they can respond to in their journal are:
- What announcements did they make today? Do you agree or disagree with their decisions?
- What was “school” like for you today?
- How did you feel about something you saw today? (Did you see something unusual or interesting? You can include things that gave you hope, worried you, or even something that made you laugh.)
- What did you eat today?
- How do you feel today? Please have your student put the date on each page and have them “practice cursive handwriting” by signing their signature at the bottom of the page for each entry in their journal. (If they are into charting and keeping up with the number of cases and such, they can include this information in their journal entries as well.)
Number 1: DON'T LET THEM PLAY VIDEO GAMES ALL DAY.
Math : Use ZEARN.org I have their logins for the account they do in my class. Please email me at email@example.com for this login. Parents may also set up an account for their child.
Math: Prodigygame.com/play I have their logins if you email me. Parents can set up an new account for their child also.
Math Fluency practice: Xtramath.org I have their logins. Email me or set up a parent account for your child.
Math: 1. FLASH CARDS FOR FACTS
2. Cook together and have them measure. Ask if you double or triple the reciepe how much is each ingredient is needed, etc. Ask what time is it on analog clock several time a day. Count you loose change around the house. Build something together and let them measure, or just let them measure rendom items and tell you their measurements. Use everyday activities as a teaching moment.
ELA: Kidsa-z.com I have their logins.
ELA: Mobymax.com/la668 I have their passwords
ELA: 1. Read with your child from books you have at home. 2. Practice handwriting if they have poor handwriting.
3. Have them write a written response to questions you ask about the book ya'll are reading together.
4. Have them write questions about the book ya'll are reading together, then you answer their question. They'll try to make it challenging for you.
Parents, you may save this link using google chrome for your child to work in Waterford. This is the program we use at school for computer lab. You can save the link to the desktop and they click on it each day to work. The student will click their number they use in class and their name to login. Please verify they are clicking on the correct one before they begin working. They will start in Reading and then it will time out and they will move to Math and Science. The kids love computer lab and Waterford offers ELA, Math and Science. It is great for them to do each day. I think it can also be used on an ipad. Download the Waterford app. You can visit waterford.org for more informaiton.
I will be sending out new spelling words every other week to work on through the remind app and on here. Please have your child practice writing these words and make flashcards using their spelling words. They can also rainbow write their words using different colors for each letter of the word.
Remember to read each day. This can be a story from a book, online book using tumblebooks or epic websites to practice reading. You can also utube the stories we are on in our Journeys book each week that goes with the lesson.
Please continue to practice adding and subtracting as much as possible. Use blocks around the house, toys, cooking with your parents to add or subtract. If you are doing math on paper be sure to remember that adding is green (go,count on, count up) red is subtract (stop, pay attention, take some away). Make your learning fun. You can use chalk outside to write your words or do math as well.
Mrs. Conner loves you all very much and I miss your smiling faces so much! Please work hard for your parents and stay healthy. I look forward to seeing you all soon. Please email me with any questions.
Love, Mrs. Conner
I just wanted say hi and let my students know I am thinking and praying for them. Here are a list of things students can do to keep busy throughout the time we are out. They can go to zearn.org for Math. Students know their user name and passwords. Please have them practice their multiplication facts. Students need to be readind as much as they can during this time. There are some really good apps they can be using right now. They are teach me 3rd grade, 3rd grade reading, and 3rd grade social studies. The website math-aides.com has worksheets for all grade levels. Please do not hesitate to call me if you need anything. Please let your child know that I love them and hope to see them soon!
My resources, which are primarily video-based, have been posted to my Blackboard page for each of the four subjects I teach (Biology II, Chemistry, Physics, and 8A Science). Simply click the link below and it will take you there; no login should be required. Stay safe and I hope to see you soon!
