Good Morning Jaguars!

I have a greeting for you.  (Click to watch).

Go greet someone at your house! Teach them our special Friday greeting.

Today is Friday, April 3rd, 2020. 

It is the 128th day of school!

I miss you guys! I have some fun ideas for next week. For today, you can try the Fun Friday Challenge if it works for you and your family.

Have a great day!


Ms. McDevitt

Daily Schedule


Read the Morning Message (above)


Reading Minilesson

Watch the read-aloud, We are Water Protectors, written and read by Carole Lin.


Read to Self

You should read from your book bag for 15 minutes or more. 

Give yourself two checks if you earned them!.

Sight word work

You should do 2 pages (or 20 minutes of focused work) in your sight word folder. Be sure to put the short date on the page.

Parents, students should be quite familiar with this activity. Their words should be written in lower case and spelled correctly. They have been taught that if they can’t read the word, they need to ask someone to read it to them at the beginning of the page. Some of them need reminders about this.

You Choose: Read to Someone Else or RAZ kids

If you are reading to someone else, you should read aloud to them for 15 minutes or more. If you want to buddy read with them, that’s okay, but you need to EEKK and TTR! (Sit Elbow to Elbow, Knee to Knee and Take Turns Reading!)

If you are doing RAZ Kids, you should listen to and read the same book. Then, listen to and read the next book in your account. You do not have to take the quiz, but you can if you want to! It will earn you more stars.

Parents, if your child has questions in their quiz that require typed answers, he or she should skip that question. They should only be doing the multiple choice questions.

Fun Friday Challenge:

Read to someone over Facetime, Skype, Zoom or Google Hangouts! You will need an adult’s help. It is okay to do this later today or this weekend if that works better for your family.



Go outside for an exercise break!

When you finish, you can do a mindfulness activity if you want to.





Play the math games linked on the wibki for today (under “Favorites,” click the date) and complete today’s lesson packet. It is on the top in your blue math folder. (It should say lesson 5 at the very bottom.) Put it back on the Done side when you are finished.

Wrap up: About how many paperclips long do you think your pencil is? What else could you measure with paperclips?

What are some things around the house you could measure with your BeeBot ruler? 

What are some things that you would not want to measure with your BeeBot ruler? Why or why not?


Choice Time!

If you want Choice Time on the computer, go to the Wibki.

Clean up your work area.

Teach someone to do Rosebud.

Your rose is something you enjoyed doing this week.

Your bud is something you are looking forward to this weekend or next week.
