March 16, 2020 Activities, Reviews, and Lessons

I am going to update the hw blog regularly with materials students may utilize to keep their minds fresh over the next two weeks. Please keep in mind, the completion of the activities and readings are not mandatory, however if utilized, they will help students stay on course with the 5th grade level objectives. Feel free to explore the links I have set up below as an introductory over the next several days.

I. Reading - These links will take you to free sites in which students have the ability to read classics and modern narratives free of cost.
