Learning from Home: April 2nd

Happy Thursday 4A Families,

We are almost to the end of the week.  I so enjoyed seeing the 4A students on Zoom yesterday. I miss them all so much!  I hope I  was able to answer a few questions.  On Friday we will have one final meeting at 1:00 to give the students a chance to ask any final questions.  I am really looking forward to a week history and fun!

Below are the tasks of the day.  Looks like Thursday will have some sun!

This week you will be working on your Oral Biography and preparing to present the week of April 6-9.

Things to know:

    • You will be sharing your presentation on Zoom so that your classmates can see you.

    • We would also like your parents to record your presentation separately without Zoom so we have a backup and higher quality version as a back-up.  This should be sent to your teacher.

    • Part of your requirement is to also watch your classmates present. You are expected to write at least 2-3 compliments and send them via chat during the Zoom presentation. We will also call on a few students to give their comments orally after each presentation.

    • Be sure to include your props.  You may have to make some adjustments because you will be filming from home. Don’t worry if you cannot get the kind of props you hoped for.  Be creative, use things around the house, draw pictures. etc.

    • When you complete your presentation you will fill out the gold “Biography Presentation Reflection” sheet that was in the folder you picked up from school last week.

    • You will send your completed Self Reflection and bibliography on the Seesaw app.

    • We will have a Zoom meeting on Wednesday to give you a chance to ask questions about the presentations.


  • Direction/explanation video  for today’s reading can be found on Ms. Corrigan’s webpage https://reading.holyrosaryws.org/category/4th-reading/
  • Read the Mystery of Roanoke article in the 11/18/2019 edition of Scholastic News which was sent home with the last packet.
  • Complete the worksheet for this article only. We will work with the remaining articles in the magazine tomorrow. 

Take a picture of finished worksheet and submit via Seesaw.



  • Start your math time with a session from Xtramath

  • Complete page 2 (front and back) from the review packet.

  • Optional: Spend 15-20 minutes on an assigned Freckle math, or visit the Fractions app on your iPad.
