  3. You’re going to record your answer on the recording sheet. Then, try to find someone in your house to measure (you won’t have enough yarn for this, you will have to get your partner to lay on the floor and place paperclips beside them). Record and compare your answers. Who is taller?
  4. Complete the Math measurement detective worksheets

Week #5

Welcome to another week!

You will notice lots of new things in your work packs this week. First, let’s start with what’s the same. You have 5 more letters to practice your printing, another colouring sheet, a subtraction sheet to use with your dice, and a Rainbow Scavenger Hunt. Remember to read all your books and write in your writing book. This week we’d like you to write about what you miss about school. Try to write at least 3 sentences with proper uppercase letters, finger spaces, and periods at the ends. I would like you to take a photo of your writing and send it to me by email so I can see what you’re thinking about.

Math is new this week. You have 5 Daily Math sheets to review math concepts we’ve already learned this year. Put your mathematician hat on and try to remember how to do everything! Also new is Build a Sentence. You need to cut out the words on the bottom of the paper, and move them around to figure out the sentence. Once you know, glue them down in order, then practice printing the sentence & draw a picture that matches it. Fun, right?

The really fun stuff is the science activities! We have real live caterpillars at home.  Right now they are little, about 1.5 centimeters long:

They live in this little container until they make their chrysalides:

The stuff you see at the bottom of the container is their food:

First, I want you to read about caterpillars. If you go to our GetEpic website (classroom code qme0040) you will find some books I have assigned for you to read in your mailbox.  “Creepy but Cool Caterpillars” is my favourite! You have a caterpillar anatomy sheet to do. Cut out the names of the caterpillar’s body, and glue them in the right spot to label the caterpillar. The other fun thing to do is to have a caterpillar race! You have 2 strips of construction paper & 2 straws. Watch this video to learn what to do, then race someone else!

Here are a couple science videos that are cool to watch:

How do germs get inside of your body? – Mystery Doug

Watch the video to discover the answer to “How do germs get inside of your body?” and don’t forget to vote for next week’s question!

How does hand sanitizer kill germs? – Mystery Doug

How does hand sanitizer kill germs? Watch the video to discover the answer and don’t forget to vote for next week’s question. There are mysteries all around us. Have fun and stay curious! This episode is locked Invite 5 or more friends and we’ll unlock all previous episodes as a thank you! Locked.

As always, send me a text or an email if you need help with anything!

Week #4

Hello again!

We were sssooo excited to see everyone who picked up their packages yesterday! It was nice to have a visit and see all your smiles again.  Have you enjoyed your bubbles yet?

We loved reading your letters. If you haven’t had a chance to write yet, you can do it this week and return your letter to school next time. 😊

This week you will notice that the word work and the daily math is the same as last week. You also have a new colouring sheet, more printing letters, and a Spring Scavenger Hunt.

This week in geometry we are moving from 2D shapes to 3D shapes. These are the shapes of things you use in real life. For example, an orange and a ball are both spheres. Can you think of other things in your house that are 3D shapes? Try making them with your toothpicks and Play Doh.



You will also have a template to make a cube. Cut it out, build it, and use it for the game inside your geometry booklet.

We gave you 2 new activities to do with your dice. One is an addition sheet, the other is a game to play with someone else in your family.

As always, there are 5 new books for you to read. This week we would like you to write about one of the books you read in your yellow writing book.  Everyone is doing such a great job at returning their books every week, it makes us very happy!

Also, Karin has been busy at home putting together activities for you to enjoy at home.  Check out her website:

Have a great week and remember if you have any questions or if we can support you in any way please, text or email and we will try our very best to get back to you!
