👋🏻☀️🌎Good Morning! I thought it would be be fun to look back at some of our accomplishments.
This collection of pictures is from our first week of school. In some of them we were working on small group challenges ~ Helping Harry and building collections of 100 and in others, reading and writing. Hopefully they’ll inspire some memories you’re grateful to keep.
Morning Work – Thanks for continuing our morning gratitude practice. What will you add to your Gratitude Jar today?💗
Please take some time to read each others blogs and leave a comment or two. Thanks for staying connected!🙌🏼💕👊🏻
Morning Meeting – I thought you might like this favorite. Happy Thought ~ by Robert Louis Stevenson
The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.
Next, listen to Happy Dreamer. Close to the end the boy says, “I’m really good at being me. A dreamer surprising, caring, funny, gentle smart… There are so many ways to be a happy dreamer? (What kind of dreamer are you?)”. Will you share a description of you and the kind of dreamer you are in a comment or on a blog post? What hopes and dreams do you have for the summer? We look forward to reading your reflections later today.🥳
Just for fun ~ here is a Happy Dreamer Fortune Teller
🌎 Social Studies and Reading📚
📖🇺🇸Shared Reading –
I hope you’ll enjoy learning how the Star Spangled Banner was created by listening to Our Flag was Still There and also thinking about what our flag stands for by listening to the short poem, Blue Sky White Stars. Think about how this connects to your U.S. geography project.
Take a break, go outside, run around, sing, play a game, make some art.📚
Independent Reading – Keep reading each and every day! Find a nice quiet place to read and enjoy at least 30 minutes with a great book. You can use this time to read for your state project as well.
At the end of reading, choose two or three things from the Book Talk Questions grid when you leave a comment about what you read today on the blog.📖 If you chose to read about your state, describe the most interesting fact you collected today.
Go outside, have some lunch, play a game, practice your recorder. Relax.
✏️Writer’s Workshop – Please continue to write each day. It can be writing for your state project, finishing a story you began a while ago, or working on your state research and blog post.📝
If you’d like a new writing idea, here are today’s optional Quick Writes:
Write a letter to your parents thanking them for all they’ve done to help you survive remote learning.
What is something you accomplished this year that you are proud of?
What was the nicest thing someone in our class did for you this year?
What do you like most about summer? Explain why.
What are your favorite things to do outside during the summer?
Read the prompts, think for a minute or so, choose a topic and write for a full 10 minutes without stopping. At the end of 10 minutes you choose – are you done, do you have a different idea, do you want to keep going. It would be fun to see some of your writing on your blog this week.
The answers to last Friday’s problems were: 1 P ( or A. I didn’t write it clearly) 2. P, 3. A, 4. P, 5. A, and 6. A
Next, here are today’s problems to choose from. Today’s problems all use division. See if there are two that feel like just right challenges. You can solve them in your journal or on a piece of paper. It would be most helpful to put the color and the date the problem was posted. Thanks!

Pens come in packs of 6. If the art room needs 78 pens, how many packs of pens should Mrs. Nardone buy?
