Good morning, everyone. Here are your directions and assignments for the week:

“Extra Push” students, you will work with me at 11:00 and 12:00 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday according to the schedule I sent you. We will do all work in class, so don’t do the assignments below.

Here are the lesson plans for the students who are NOT WORKING WITH ME on ZOOM in a tutorial.  You can do these in any order, any day, as long as everything is turned in by Friday 5:00 pm.

Monday – Read pp. 58-60 in your iReady Workbook. Answer questions 1-3. Send me a REMIND with the three answers. You don’t have to do #4. Read this week’s Vocabulary Words and definitions. Remember, please send the 3 answers to me on REMIND. It’s very easy for me to receive that way.

Iready Workbook Pages 58-60

  1. organic – Natural

“I prefer the organic tomatoes because they aren’t full of pesticides and chemicals.”

  1. eye-opening – the quality of something that makes you see a situation dramatically different than before.

“Seeing Wanda shoplift a pair of headphones was a sad but eye-opening experience.”

  1. Splendid – good in many ways

“Standing with my family on the beach at sunset, looking at the colorful sky and waves, was a splendid experience.”

Tuesday – Read 20 minutes in your book report book. Remember your book report is due on May 8. Work on iReady online for 45 minutes. Watch the two elephant videos–they are very short but thrilling.

Wednesday – Research baby elephants online. Write 25 interesting facts about elephants and their babies. Use well-written, complete sentences. Take a picture of your answers and send them to me on REMIND. Don’t send through email, but send through REMIND.

Thursday – Read your book report book for 45 minutes. Remember to pay attention to the details as you read. For extra credit—not mandatory—make this banana bread for your family:

Moist and Delicious Banana Bread

3 ripe bananas, mashed well

2 eggs

1¾ Cups flour

1½ Cups sugar

½ Cup vegetable oil

¼ Cup milk

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla

½ tsp salt

½ Cups Walnuts (optional)

_____

Grease and flour a loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350°.

Mix the bananas, sugar, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla together.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the

batter and mix in. Stir in walnuts if you want nuts. Pour into the

loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes. It should be golden brown. Stick

a toothpick in the center and pull it out. The toothpick should be

fairly clean and not have gooey batter on it. Cook the banana

bread for an hour. Eat plain, with butter, or frosting.

Send me a picture on Remind of your banana bread if you make it.

Friday – Review your vocabulary words for the week, read your book report book, and catch-up on any missing work.
