Sunday...for this week's information.
At least once a day...Castle in the Attic will be on a video in your email.


WHAT TO DO (April 6-10)
1. After receiving parent input, I have added recommended days to subject matter.
***** If that day doesn't work,..please don't worry.
2. I apologize for the length of the directions.
***** Adding more clarifications, activities, pictures, made this long.
3. Subject matter (Christ Light, Reading, Spelling, English, and Math) are things that deal directly with 4th grade curriculum.
***** These are “more” recommended. If the state would come looking for what was done educationally during distance learning, this is what they would want to see.
***** I won’t say they are required, but these are things that will keep 4th grade minds focused on education and will help them to be ready for 5th grade.
4. The list on the far bottom…is just like it says,
****** OTHER THINGS TO DO...No, not required. Just for fun.
5. There are assignments/activities listed for Monday through Friday, but less on Thursday and Friday
***** I did include some Holy Week activities that could be done on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.
6. Pictures of assignments/activities in this email are also attachments.
7. Next assignment/activity list will be online on Easter Sunday, April 12.
