If you have not read all three articles in your River Otter magazine, finish it today. If you have already read the articles, you can reread them or go right to Read to Self.

Here are the videos from earlier this week if you need or want them.

Read to Self

You should read from your book bag for 15 minutes. More is better, if you want to do more!

Give yourself two checks if you earned them!.

9:00 - 9:45

We will be learning about Green Up Day instead of our usual activities. If you don’t have a grownup who can help you with these special activities, you can do Read to Someone Else, RAZ Kids, or Sight Words instead. If you want to learn about Green Up Day and do your regular activities, too, that is great! Go for it.

Print out this Green Up Day activity book. Read it by yourself or with a parent or caregiver.

Green Up Day Activity Book

If you don’t have a printer, you can watch The Lorax instead.  

It’s okay if you want to do both!



Go outside for an exercise break!

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



Glue your sort. Have an adult or older sibling check it with you.

Today we will work on writing equations with numbers up to 100. By the end of the lesson, you will need to decide what challenge you want to try!

Part 1: Get your materials

Make or print this spinner

You can print it out or draw one that looks just like it. (Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to insert a picture of it. You will need to click the link to see it and draw your own or print it out.)

Pick what other math tool you will use to play. You can use your ten frames, your bundles, or dimes and pennies.

Part 2: Play a warm up round

  1. First partner builds a number from 0-100 using a math tool.

  2. Second partner spins and says what the answer is.

  3. Repeat until each partner has gone three times.

Part 3: Choose one or more of the challenges. You can try more than one challenge at a time!

  • Challenge 1: Play again, but now write the equation each time.

  • Challenge 2: Instead of building the number, the first partner writes the number. The game is way faster this way.

  • Challenge 3: Make your own spinner...Ten more/ten less, five more/five less, whatever you want!

  • Challenge 4: Set a time limit for each round like we did with Build and Count.

  • Challenge 5: Play with money...dimes and pennies! (Or even dollars!!!)

Part 4: Send me a picture of your challenge work

Take a picture using a phone or chromebook and send it to my email. You could also write me an email that tells me what you did.


Choice Time!
