March 24th afternoon videos and upcoming Zoom

Hi everyone!

Here are some more videos for today.

First up is another read aloud set during the Revolutionary War.  This is a book called The Scarlet Stockings Spy and is about how a young girl and her brother helped spy for the Patriots during the war.  It is a bit sad, along with being inspiring, so just be forewarned.

After your child listens to both of the Revolutionary War spying books, we would love them to create a compare / contrast map of the two books and send us a picture of what they made.

Next is a math lesson that goes along with the area and perimeter packets about drawing rectangles of a certain area or perimeter.

And one about finding the area of complex shapes made up of two or more rectangles or squares.

Tomorrow afternoon we will be sending out a video about finding the perimeter of complex shapes and one about the next few pages of Multiplication 5, as well as another story.

We are also planning another whole class zoom check in this coming Thursday at 10:30, as well as next Thursday at 10:30 (invite for that one coming later) so we hope to see everyone then.

Denise Benjamin is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

And, just to give you all a heads up, the district is mandating that this Friday be a day of teachers doing professional development, so we will be sending out more videos on Thursday to compensate for not being as available on Friday.  We do want you to know that we are readily available via email and do our best to respond as quickly as we can.  Please keep sharing with us what your child has been doing so that we can continue to respond to them as well.
