    • Enrichment Assignments for APRIL 6 - APRIL 10

      I have listed the enrichment assignments for the week below. I know that everyone has different schedules, therefore I listed all the enrichment assignments without breaking it up by day. It can slowly be worked on throughout the week. New material will be posted for next week. If you have questions, feel free to email me at sandramiller@eriesd.org. I will be checking my email continuously. 

      Students may complete one reading, one word practice, and one math practice daily as well as 30 minutes of CKLA Amplify Reading and 30 minutes of i-Ready

      Tell those kiddos I have been checking up on them online for i-Ready and CKLA Amplify Reading to see their progress! :)

        • We have been working on the difference of nouns versus verbs. A reminder for students: a noun is a person, place, thing, or animal; a proper noun is the name of a person or place or company; a verb is an action (we haven't talked about linking verbs yet.)

      • Word Practice: Sounds in the Words Page 1 Page 2
        • Students circle the sounds in the words, looking for vowel pairs and diagraphs, and practice printing the word. 
        • The directions are listed on the side of the page; circle each sound spelling and count the number of sounds in the word. Record the number in the box.
      • Spelling Word Review: Spelling Word Review List 
        • Practice each of the spelling words. You can practice writing them on any paper, using magentic letters (if available at home), or even just practice spelling the letters out loud. 
      • Word Reading Fluency: Word Cards 1 Word Cards 2
        • These words all contain short vowels and are decodable.
        • Practice tapping the sounds, if needed, and reading each word. Each word card set is a few pages long, providing extra practice for our readers.
