Remote Learning Expectations

I have tried to attach the following video series for students to watch as part of their Social Studies program.
When hovering over the title there is a circle with a picture of the Liberty Kids...click on the circle and you should come
to a you tube link that will allow you to watch all of the videos....I hope it works, I will be checking in with all of you.  We had started with the first
two episodes, but you may not recall the events so this is a good way to watch them and go back as you need.  

YouTube Video

 I know it is difficult, but try to keep yourself on track and practice words each day for 15-20 minutes.
The first thing you should do is copy your list words and make some flash cards like we do in class.  In your bag there should have been some recycled flashcards that you can use and cut in half like we do at school.  If you make two copies of your words, you can use them to play concentration with a family member or on your own.
Check your assignments....you should work on your packet each day and practice your words often.  

Have a parent or other adult administer a spelling test and have them initial or sign your work.  Keep work and test papers in a folder and set aside.  I will send instructions about getting work turned in.  I will make arrangements with you to have work returned.

Practice dictionary skills.....use those guide words!
Read for 30 or more minutes each night.

Math- Study Multiplication Facts and division facts as well as reviewing place value, Roman Numerals, and Money and basic fractions.

Log onto IXL ------I would like to see each area on IXL worked on throughout the week.  Those of you who do not have computers will need to practice skills using other resources.  At this point the company has unlocked social studies as well so you should be able to do Science, Social Studies, Math and Language skills on IXL.
This program is designed to allow me to go in and evaluate your work.  It is my hope that you will have logged into IXL at least three times a week.  Spend 15 to 20 minutes on each subject area.  

I would like you to use your time wisely so.....if you need materials, let me know.  Protractors and other materials can be sent to you if you need and let me know.  
Extra time???
Practice using a protractor and measuring angles.
Practice drawing angles: right, acute, obtuse

Study types of triangles: equilateral, scalene, isosceles

Equilateral, Isosceles and Scalene

There are three special names given to triangles that tell how many sides (or angles) are equal.

There can be 3, 2 or no equal sides/angles:

Equilateral Triangle

Equilateral Triangle

Three equal sides
Three equal angles, always 60°

Isosceles Triangle

Isosceles Triangle

Two equal sides
Two equal angles

Scalene Triangle

Scalene Triangle

No equal sides
No equal angles

Geometry terms: Symmetry and Congruence
When two shapes are congruent it means they are the same exact shape and size. 
If you fold a figure in half along the middle line either horizontally or vertically and all sides of the figure match, this is called symmetry!

Parents Please assist as needed.  If you need assistance, please contact me.  I will do my best to help problem solve as we go.  Keep up a good schedule and allow the students to hold their own school sessions in an area free from distractions.  Some students may wish to set up their own little work station with their materials so they can keep everything together.  
Don't forget to practice math on : www.ixl.com   Students all have their own accounts and can access this program from home as often as possible.  Three to four practice sessions throughout the week can make a huge difference in skills.  I am able to track performance even if the students are practicing from home.  This is a great way to study skills and have some fun doing it. 
Another program students are encouraged to check out as often as possible are activities on Arcademics.  Follow the link below and have fun!
