CartoonsLearning Under Quarantine – May 4-8, 2020

Reminders:  We meet each Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 on Zoom.  793-369-0703  Glory.  

This week we will be covering new material.  As our time together on Zoom is limited, I will be assigning videos and/or activities which will enhance and supplement learning.  Schoology will be used for assignments.  Parents:  I will instruct your child and provide him or her with additional learning assignments.  Although they won’t be graded, the assignments need to be completed so students can learn the curriculum and make the most of our time together on Zoom.  I may offer an additional, optional class meeting weekly if I feel we need more time together.  

This week:

Math– Measurement, length, US customary (inches, feet, yards, miles)  Choosing proper unit, estimating length/distance, converting.  Assigments will be given in Schoology (courses, math)

Students will need to study and memorize the following:

1 ft. = 12 in.      3 ft. = 1 yd.      1 mile = 5280 feet, 1760 yards  Can you use this information to determine how many inches are in 1 yard?  How many inches are inn 5 feet? etc.

Next week students will use a ruler to measure to the nearest 1/8 inch.

Reading:  making inferences (reading between the lines)  Assignments will be communicated in Schoology (courses, Reading).
