You can view Submarine Outlaw chapters 22 to 29 on You Tube until June 5th.  After that, they will be removed. Don't forget to like or comment on each video!

Starting last fall, as a class, we gathered information about Oceans.  We read books, watched videos, and searched the internet for facts and details.  After everyone was given a more specific topic about oceans, we made notes from these sources and picked the most important information and started writing a descriptive report in paragraphs.  Some even had an illustration(picture), map or chart to label to go with their topic. 

Now, you get to choose any topic you are interested in – to learn more about or to share with me if you wish.  Once you have gathered all your information, you can choose to share it in a:

  • Poster- with a title and labeled facts and details and illustrations (drawings)/graphics (pictures).
  • Descriptive report – put all your facts and details in full sentences in 3 paragraphs: an introduction, middle and conclusion.
  • Pamphlet – fold your paper in three.  The first page is like a title page, the other 5 sides can be filled in with information and graphics.
  • Power point – a mix of images and facts/details on 3-5 slides.

Once you are finished, ask a parent to take a picture of it (poster/report) and send it to me, or send me your power point to my email: christina.savoy@nbed.nb.ca

 

Don’t forget to source your facts/details by listing the URL address of the sites where you got some good information.  If you used a book, list the title and author.  If you found a great video to help you out, list the title and URL.  It is always important to show where you found your information!

Here are some sites from class that may help you out:

 

1- kidtopia                                       5. kidrex
2- GoGooligans                                 6. Fact monster
3- Kiddle                                         7.cybersleuth

Read 30 minutes everyday.

When you finish your novel write me a reading letter (form and prompts to follow are in my documents section) about your novel.  Send it to me by email at: christina.savoy@nbed.nb.ca

In your writing journal, choose one of the prompts daily from below to write about:

What occasions did you celebrate so far during this pandemic? Make a list. Choose 1 or 2 and explain how you celebrated this year compared to how you would normally celebrate. Which was better?

Interview a parent or another adult. Ask them what their biggest change has been and what they are most thankful for.  Ask their top 3 moments from this experience.

Choose any TV show or movie. Write the title, characters, setting, beginning, middle, and end.  Write an alternate ending for this show or movie.

Make a T-chart. Write a list of things you like about learning at home versus at school. 

What movies have you watched during the last 2 months?  What genre do you prefer? Make a list of all the movies you have watched this month and then choose 2 to compare.

Billie Ellish said “In the public eye, girls and women with strong perspectives are hated. If you're a girl with an opinion, people just hate you. There are still people who are afraid of successful women, and that's so lame.” Write a response stating if you agree or disagree with her and explain why.

Mother’s Day was this month. Take time to write a letter to your mom, grandmother, aunt or a special friend. Tell them why you are grateful to have them in your life.  Do something special to show you are thankful such as washing the dishes, helping cook a meal or giving them a special hug.

Read your book while doing a wall sit. How long can you do it for? Try reading while doing a plank. Which is easier? Try to increase your time for both. Write a summary in your journal of what you read while doing the wall sit and plank.

Pick a page from the book you are reading. Change all of the nouns to things you see right in front of you in your house, then read it aloud.
