Wibki: all our webpages in one place!

Good Morning Marching Marbles!

Today is Monday, March 23rd, 2020. 

It is the 119th day of school!

Today is all about getting ready to be in first grade from home. 

Click this link and see if you can figure out how to get to RAZ Kids. 

(Hint: It is also called Kids A-Z!)

That is our wibki. It will help us keep track of all our things online.

Have a great day!


Ms. McDevitt

Daily Schedule


Read the Morning Message (above)


Read to Self

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

Give yourself two checks if you earned them!.

Video how-to 


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.



Go outside for an exercise break!


Word work

In your orange folder, take out the “or” sort. Cut and sort your new sort. 

There are two oddballs.

How to cut your sort 



Work in your letter formation book for 20 minutes. If you do not have a letter formation book, you should do RAZ Kids, Read to Self, or do something from the Library folder from Mrs. Stender in your box. 

Parents, if you’re confused about the lines, here’s a humorous helpful video.

Here’s a less funny video that is also helpful.

Parents, the dot on the page indicates where the letter should start. Letters are formed from the top. Please keep an eye out during this activity!



Play the math games linked on the wibki for today (under “Favorites,” click the date) and then complete today’s lesson packet. It is on the top in your blue math folder. (It should say lesson 1 at the very bottom.) Put it back on the Done side when you are finished.

The games are also linked below if you can’t find them on the wibki. Try all three!

Choice/Enrichment Time!

Today would normally be Library Day. There is a folder in your bin from Mrs. Stender if you would like to do those activities.

There is also a folder in your bin from Mr. Davis. You could do something from there if you would like.

You can be finished for the day if you want; if you choose this option, be sure to do Closing Circle!

If you want to have Choice Time, then go to the wibki. Under “Favorites” click on “Enrichment.” Those are all interesting things you might like to try for Choice! Pick one or two to try today.


Closing Circle

Wow, that was a big day! 

What was hard for you? 

Is there anything you need Ms. McDevitt’s help with? Make a list so you remember!
