Assignment for 3-5 Students:

 

Did you press your flowers a few weeks ago?  If yes now you can make a suncatcher.  If you didn't press flowers you can still go get fresh flower petals or cut out construction paper.  Instructions are here in this video:

 If you don't have Contact Paper try using a smaller paper plate (or a small circle made of construction paper) and clear packing tape.

3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade

Go on a nature walk and find some flowers (make sure you are being safe and they are flowers you are allowed to pick).  Open the attached instructions on how to press and preserve your flower.  Include on a piece of paper the day you found the flower, where you found it, and what the flower makes you think about.  We will be using these flowers in a couple of weeks for a library project.

Week 5 (April 13th-April 17th) 

Click on the link below for a packet called "My 2020 Covid-19 Time Capsule".

My Covid Time Capsule PDF

Students may do as much of the packet as they like.  I recommend they do at least the following:

 

Kindergarten:  Pick one page.  Drawing-based pages might be the best for this age, such as page 2, page 6, or page 7.

1st: Pick two pages

2nd: Pick three pages

3rd: Pick four pages

4th: Pick five pages

5th: Pick six pages

Don't worry if you don't have a printer-just recreate the pages on regular paper.

 

Bonus:  Click below if you would like to read an E-Book about Coronavirus

Coronavirus: A Book for Children

 

 Week 4 (April 6th-April 10th)

 

All Grade Levels:  Choose a book you like and create a scene from that book.  Use legos, blocks, toys, items from the recycling-whatever you can think of.  For example if you like "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" you could create a bus, a pigeon and a bus driver out of legos.  If you like "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" you could create the chocolate room in Willy Wonka's factory out of a shoebox and pieces of decorated cardboard.  You can use these examples, or think of your own idea.  Please send a picture of your creation if you can.
