How to Use This Page

This page contains a "menu" of lessons and activities for this week's learning at home. You will find the objectives: the specific skills that your child will be able to do. Then you will find a selection of lessons and activities which help your child master those skills. If you run into technical issues or other difficulties with any of these, simply move on and choose another. These activities fit into the Sample Dailly Schedule.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Your child DOES NOT have to complete all activities listed for each subject.
  • Activities have been identified to give your child choice and variety.
  • Your child's teacher may suggest other activities more appropriate for your child.

Or, write about your past home. What made that place feel like home? Do you feel at home now? Has it been difficult to create a new feeling of home?
Making a house a Home Project - Reflect on the things inside your house and the people, too! Make a list of 15 things that make your house a home. Next to each thing, say why it makes you feel the way it does, and why is it so important to you. Without it, would your house still feel like home?
Cooking Project – What meal makes you feel at home? Ask your family if you could cook that meal together. Send the recipe to your teacher.

Art Project – Using a shoebox and things you find around the house, create a room you love in the shoebox. Make it a room you’d like to live in or spend time in. What kinds of things are in the room? Why do you love it?
