Below you will find a brief description and materials for suggested Math and Science activities for the week. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions or if you would like additional material.
Think, Notice, Wonder Activities
Students can strengthen their self-confidence, reflective skills, and discussion engagement in these think, notice, wonder activities. We have completed activities like this in class so this is nothing new for them! These discussion based activities reinforce the idea that the goal is not to be "over and done," with a situation, but to realize the many different ways to approach problems. There are 10 different pictures to choose from as well as sample student responses. I encourage you to share your thoughts and ideas as well. In activities like this, the more perspectives brought to the table, the richer the discussion!
Origo At Home
The mastermind who created the Origo math curriculum we use in class have created weekly, digital content plans for home use. The weekly plans contain activities for each day, along with digitally accessible or downloadable resources, designed for delivery by a caregiver or remote teacher. These resources align with the mathematical concepts and skills students are learning at their grade level. I encourage you to explore this website and the activities they have designed! This is a new component of the program- any user feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Mixed Module 4-6 Review Quizizz
Students can review math concepts previously taught in our Origo Modules 4-6. Once students go to the website, they should create a user name with their actual name, not an unrecognizable silly nickname. Students can complete this quizizz as many times as they would like. Students should use the same username each time they complete it as we don’t need to have 200 open quizizz from BobbyJo J There were a few students this past week who made nicknames that did not include their name and therefore it is unknown who completed it! Our goal as usual is to aim for 80% accuracy. Students should complete this review before completing the attached Origo Quarterly Assessment. ** Please contact your child's teacher for the individual class code**
Origo Mixed Module Quarterly Assessment Modules 4-6
This assessment can either be printed and completed or students can practice their work organization and show their work for each problem by numbering a piece of paper, completing the problems on there as well.
Bill Nye the Science Guy Video Activity:
Students can visit the following link and watch a comical yet informative video segment on the reason for the seasons. Students can complete the attached recording sheet. For additional information and skill building, students can also complete the attached reading and comprehension questions.
