Good Morning Marching Marbles!

Today is Monday, March 30th, 2020. 

It is the 124th day of school!

This week we will start having Reading Minilessons, just like at school!

We will not have a Community Meeting all together today, but Mr. Davis put this cool video together for you!

Have a great day!


Ms. McDevitt

Daily Schedule


Read the Morning Message (above)


Reading Minilesson

Watch the video and complete the activity.


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.

Video how-to


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!

If you want, you can do a mindfulness activity when you finish.


Word work

In your orange folder, take out the next sort. (The words in the top row are cat and star.) Cut and sort your new sort. 

How many oddballs did you find? I could only find one! 

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 game 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 6 at the very bottom.) Put it back on the Done side when you are finished.

The game is also linked below if you can’t find it on the wibki. 

Clockworks Game

Hint: Don’t forget to move the hour hand to where it would be if the time says :30!


Choice 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.

If you want to have STEAM time like at the Makerspace, click here.

You can be finished for the day if you want.

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

Clean up your work area.

Here is a recording of Ms. King singing the school song.  Try singing along. If you're up for a family challenge, follow these directions on how to record yourself joining in.

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