This week we are reading...



Today we will be focusing on vocabulary.

 Listen to Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman (Above). Pause the video when you come across one of the following vocabulary words: "exciting," "battle," "wicked," "exploring," "adventure,"  and "amazing.

Here is a great online dictionary for children. It also has a new 'Word of the Day' which you could use to learn new words every day! 

Britannica Kids

When you have found the meaning of your new word, use the worksheet below to help you to use the word in different ways. 


 We are learning time! Time is used to measure or compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and even sequence events.

This week we are learning about how many minutes are in an hour and how many hours are in a day.

Last week we practiced telling the time to 5 minutes. 
Here's a video to help you see how we can count in 5s to get to 1 hour.



Special Task

Magic Milk Science Experiment

To set up the magic milk science experiment, you only need to grab a few supplies.

That’s all you need! I bet you have most of them already.

It’s also super simple to set up.

1. Pour a thin layer of milk in a shallow pan.

2. Have the kids add drops of food coloring all around in the milk.

3. Then the kids will pick up a cotton swab and dip it in the dish soap.

4. Then put the cotton swab in the milk – pressing it down in one spot and holding it there for about 15 seconds.

How does the Magic Milk Experiment work?

Here are some questions to ask the kids:

  1. What did you notice?
  2. What happened when you put the cotton swab in the milk?
  3. Why do you think that happened?
  4. Why do you think it stopped moving around after a period of time?
  5. What else did you observe?

Make sure you send me a picture of your experiment to !
