Spanish

Hey friends! I hope you are all still healthy and doing well. I am writing this Tuesday night, right after that big storm that left a beautiful sky in it’s wake! Mrs. Henson, our Rejoice Art teacher, is one of my best friends, and I am lucky enough to live right across the street from her. How cool is that!?!? After the storm, she texted me to come outside with her and look at the beautiful sky God painted. I hope you got to see it, too. He truly is the greatest artist, and you, young ladies and gentlemen, are his masterpiece. I miss you bunches, and I love you lots! 

This week, let’s have some wacky fun! Let’s play dress up. You can be as silly or as sophisticated as you want to be. You can be fancy or comfy or anywhere in between!! Using our following clothing item words, either dress up or draw a picture of the clothing item. Have a parent say the word in Spanish, and you try to remember what clothing item it is. When you think you have the right item, put it on (or draw it on your picture). At the end, do a fashion show or show off your artwork! Have a blast with it; learning is so much more fun when we play games!

Clothing items:

camisa-shirt                         calcetines-socks           

pantalones-pants                    zapatos-shoes               

vestido-dress                        gorro-hat (like a ball cap)

falda- skirt                        pantalones cortos-shorts

cinturon-belt                        guantes-gloves

Music

Hello Boys and Girls!  HAPPY MAY!   

Music with Mrs. Smith – 3rd – 5th – May 4-8, 2020

A couple weeks ago, we learned the hand clapping game called SEVENS.  If you haven’t had a chance to learn it yet, here is the link. 

SEVENS Tutorial with Mrs. Smith

SEVENS written instructions

It’s a lot of fun! Try teaching it to someone else in your family.  It’s even more fun with more people.  Remember, the goal is to STAY TOGETHER.  

Have you ever wanted to do the “cup game” or “cup routine”?  Well this week, let’s check out this fun tutorial video to see how you can do the cup game at home!  Get a plastic cup and you can learn along with the people in the video.  Remember that when they say “right” or “left” they’re talking about THEIR own right or left.  It might look backwards to you, but follow what they SAY when they use the terms right and left.

CUPS!  Tutorial #1

You might have heard the song “What a Wonderful World” before in TV, movies, or on the radio.  In the video below you’ll see a singer perform the song with a guitar accompaniment and you’ll also see a book illustrated by Tim Hopgood.  The pictures are beautiful.  Watch below to see and hear.

What a Wonderful World

Have you been listening to music by our Composer of the Month? 

If you are interested in learning more about him, I have included his picture and Biography here.  Ask a family member to help you read some of the facts about his life.  What do you find most interesting?

Spanish

Hey guys! Another week has passed, and I haven’t seen your smiling faces or wrapped you in big hugs. Oh, how I miss seeing my buddies! I hope you are having a good time learning at home, and I pray you are all staying healthy! 

 We are going to continue using the Calico Spanish curriculum we have been using the past 3 weeks. As always, please do not feel pressured to do these lessons! My goal is to enhance your learning from home experience, not add to an already overflowing plate. There are lots of fun videos, songs, and learning materials at www.calico.com. I have also included the link to the pdf files where you can print flashcards, worksheets, and dialogues. For the week of 4/27/20-5/1/20, let’s explore Day 4 videos and activities! 

https://calicospanish.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/free-download-CalicoSpanish_SendingStoriesHome.pdf

I don’t know about your parents, but I feel like I have cooked 5,982,361 meals this past 6 weeks. So, in light of that, let’s learn some common food words! I have attached a worksheet called “Food Groups.” Try to fill it out using words you have heard. You might be surprised to see how much you already know. I have also included the answer key if you get stumped. After you have completed the worksheet, practice asking for certain foods in Spanish. You might even ask your parents if you can help make a snack, or even a meal, with some of the foods listed. As always, don’t forget your manners! “Por favor” (please), “gracias” (thank you), and “de nada” (you’re welcome) go a long way in every language! 

After enjoying a meal with your family, snuggle up with a soft blanket and take a virtual fieldtrip through the Amazon rainforest

  • One Finger ___________                                                 
  • With another person (back and forth) _______          

Round 2 = Repeat round 1, but keep your feet in the same place.

  • Hands ____________                                                  
  • Feet ____________                                                 
  • Head ____________                                                 
  • Elbow ____________                                                
  • Knee ____________                                                
  • One Finger ___________                                                 
  • With another person (back and forth) _______           

Throwing and Catching Practice

Get a ball and go outside with permission. (If you don’t have a ball, a rolled-up sock works too.) Count how many times you can throw a ball up and catch it without dropping it. Try again and see if you can do better each time. What was your highest number? ­­­­­­­­­__________

Practice throwing and catching with another person. Start close together. Each time someone catches the ball, that person will take one step backwards. How far apart can you get?

Art                                                                                                                                                                                      Hope for Healthcare Heroes

Friends,

   We will be making cards this week to offer hope and encouragement to those taking care of others during this time. Just like we have encouraged Madi, the kids in the orphanages, and those at the nursing home, we have the opportunity to encourage our local doctors and nurses.

*It is optional to send these cards. If you would like, you could take a pic and send it to someone that you know who is serving at the hospital or doctor’s office.

  Your assignment this week is to draw and decorate a card for those serving the sick. Some examples would be, “Praying you stay safe!”  “Thank you for serving!” “You have a heart of gold!” Something short and sweet with a beautiful picture. Be sure to use your best handwriting and drawing/coloring. Have mom and dad check it to make sure that it is ready to be sent. This is a great way to practice addressing an envelope! Below are some addresses for you to mail your cards….

Hi, Guys!   I sure have been missing you! I hope that you all are doing well! During these times of unknown, we know that we can trust our Savior. We have so much to be grateful for today! This week, we are creating our own individual collages. Remember that collages are collections of items put together to create one piece. This collage has the focus of gratitude.

Materials:

  • Paper 
  • Crayons or colored pencils
  • Your ideas on gratitude

Instructions:  Download this document by Cassie Stephens. If your printer isn’t working right now, you can draw your own version 🙂 Below is the printable file. Here is a song on gratitude by Elevation Worship. It’s my new favorite!  Grateful by Elevation Worship  I look forward to seeing your galleries!  “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Give thanks to the God of gods, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Give thanks to the Lord of lords, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.”  Psalm 136:1-3

Roll the Dice Work Out

Roll a dice and complete the exercise that goes with the number rolled. Try to roll 5-10 times at least 2 days this week. If you do not have dice at home, just choose your own numbers each time. You can also continue to keep a fitness journal. Write the different ways you were active each day this week.

 

1 = Do your favorite dance move for 20 seconds

2 = Touch your head, shoulders, knees, and toes 10 times

3 = Jump as high as you can 10 times

4 = 15 Jumping Jacks

5 = 5 Burpees

6 = Your choice (Choose from one of the other numbers or make up your own )

PE

Easter Egg Challenge – Eater is coming up, so grab a plastic egg and spoon and head outside (with an adult). See how far you can run while balancing the egg in the spoon. Can you skip, gallop, and/or hop? Ask someone at home to race you. Have fun and remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us all! 

Playing Cards Workout

Ask a sibling or adult at home join you (or your whole family 😊). Shuffle a deck of cards and take turns drawing one card at a time and doing the exercise that matches. You can just do the exercise for the card you draw, or you can try to do everyone’s exercises altogether. Complete as many rounds as you can. Play this game at least 2 days this week.

Numbers 2-9 = do that number of jumping jacks

Number 10 = run in place and count to 20

Jack = 10 frog jumps

Queen = 10 lunges

King = 10 sit ups

Ace = 10 push-ups

 Joker = 10 burpees

Music

Musication Play Along: Household Instruments

Hello students, it’s time to play!  You’re going to need some family members to make this challenge really shine so grab a sibling, parent, or pet to help you out!  Some of you may remember playing Musications in class around Christmas time. We used Boomwhackers. Well, I know you don’t have those at home but I bet you will be able to find what you need for this fun game.  Here’s what you need to find around your house: a box, metal can or pan, cutlery (that means a spoon or fork), and some type of lid. Don’t have those things? Use anything else you can find that will make a nice sound.

Once you’ve got all the other players and the right “instruments” click play and the video will show you how to play along with the music on the screen.  After you’ve played through once, switch instruments with someone else in the room and try again. Can’t find anyone else to play with you? That’s okay. Just play one part, and then when you watch again play a different part.  Good luck and happy music making!

Musication – Alla Turka 

Fun fact:  This music was written by one of the composers we studied at the beginning of the  year. Can you figure out which one?  

How did it go?  I would love to know!  Who played along with you or did you play all the parts yourself?  If you would like to share with me, you can email me at: msmith@rejoiceschool.com

Happy Spring!

I am so excited to celebrate what our Savior has done for us! What beautiful weather we have to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord!

Here is your lesson from me for this week! J

Watercolor Resist Watercolor

Here is an example from the internet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supplies

-White card stock, watercolor paper, or copy paper

-White crayon

-Ruler or straight edge

-Watercolors

Instructions

  1. Take your ruler to draw the cross with your white crayon.
  2. Using your ruler and white crayon, draw lines in various directions. Make sure your lines are thick!
  3. Watercolor over your lines. The wax will resist the watercolors.

*A variation is to use painter’s tape to create the lines. This makes it easier to see where you’re painting; however, it can be more difficult to create the skinny strips for lines. Simply peel the tape off to reveal your masterpiece!

Enjoy creating your art this week as you reflect on the beauty of the cross and what the Lord has done for us! He is RISEN!!!

Mark 16:5-6: “As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. ‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.'”

Spanish –

Hi sweet friends! I sure miss your hugs, high fives, fist bumps, silly faces, dances, and any other fun way you have greeted me throughout this school year. When this is all over, and I fully trust that it WILL be over soon, I can’t wait to see all of you again! Until then, let’s have some fun learning in a new way! 

Calico Spanish is a curriculum I purchased earlier this year, but I never got the chance to fully implement in the classroom. It is great, because it can be used for multiple grade levels! They are now offering their printable pdf, as well as other learning materials, to students and families as we all adapt to schooling at home together during this crazy time. Please do not feel pressured to do these lessons, but there are lots of fun videos, songs, and learning materials at www.calico.com. I have also included the link to the pdf files where you can print flashcards, worksheets, and dialogues. For the week of 4/6/20-4/10/20, choose as many or as few of the below items as you would like to learn: 

  1. For Calico Spanish, let’s explore Day 1 videos and activities! 

https://calicospanish.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/free-download-CalicoSpanish_SendingStoriesHome.pdf

  1. Remember our fun weather window in our beautiful classroom? Choose a window, look outside at God’s beauty, and make a weather report. With your parent’s permission, color pictures to tape to the window (or you could even use special markers made for glass, IF IT’S OK WITH YOUR PARENTS! :)) to post our different weather words on the window. You could choose from some of the following:

Hace calor- it’s hot            Hace fresco-it’s cool            Hace frio-it’s cold

Hay un arco iris-there is a rainbow    Hace viento- it’s windy    Hace sol-it’s sunny

Esta nublado-it’s cloudy    Esta lloviendo-it’s raining        Esta nevando-it’s snowing

Hace buen tiempo-it’s nice weather    Hace mal tiempo-it’s bad weather

Take a look around the writing hut to see where he created his ideas for stories. When you scroll to the bottom, there are three different activities to make. You may choose one of these or create your own! This week is like when we used to have multi-media and create whatever we could imagine with the various supplies we had in the room. Maybe at your house you have some popsicle sticks, toilet paper/paper towel rolls, feathers, buttons, pipe cleaners, etc. I want for you to use your imagination to help you create your own creation, masterpiece or invention. Be sure to send me a pic of your creation/invention!

I pray that you have a wonderful summer! I look forward to seeing you on the 20th 🙂

 

Music

HAPPY LAST WEEK of SCHOOL!  Have a safe and wonderful summer break.  

Are you thinking about joining the band in 5th or 6th grade?  Interested in learning more about the instruments?  Here’s a handy video that will give you some information about a variety of instruments.  When you’re finished watching the video tell me what instrument was your favorite and why!

Family Field Day

This week pick a day (or two, or three… 😊) and have family field day at home. Some of these activities can be completed inside the house and others outside. You can pick your favorite events or try them all. Feel free to make up your own events too. Have fun and be safe!

Limbo – use a stick from outside or a yardstick and see how low you can go

3-Legged Race – use something around the house to loosely tie two people’s legs together, you can time how long it takes each pair to race to a designated spot or just play for fun

Chalk Obstacle Course – use chalk on your driveway or sidewalk to draw an obstacle course and see who can complete it the fastest

Long Jump – use chalk to mark each person’s longest jump

Long Throw – pick a ball and see who can throw it the farthest

Sack Race – use a pillowcase or trash bag and race to a designated spot

Egg in Spoon Race – use a plastic (or real 😉) egg and balance it in a spoon, race to a designated spot

Cup Stacking Race – see who can cup stack up and down the fastest, try the different stacks (3-3-3; 3-6-3; 6-6; and cycle), or see who can stack the most cups/best tower

Walk/Run/Bike 1 Mile – see if you can complete a mile around your neighborhood, this can be finished over multiple days or all at once

Tag – play a good old-fashioned game of tag in the yard

 

Spanish

Hey friends! Well, WE MADE IT! It may seem like you have been staying at home forever, but it’s only been 2 months. Honestly, I feel like it has flown by so quickly. I hope you are all still well and healthy, and that this quarantine has given you guys so much amazing family time. I know that God has a plan bigger than anything the human mind can even comprehend. I truly believe that God is IN all of this. He did not cause this, but He is right here in the midst of it with us. God is not the author of fear and chaos; He is the author of peace and truth. My prayer for you guys is that you just know His great love for you and that you are enveloped in a peace that only God can provide, a comfort like no other. 

If we were in class, I planned on having a party day for our last day of school. Since I can’t do that, I created a game for you guys. The instructions are in the video, but here are the basics:

Using the list below, write the Spanish word on a post-it. (If you don’t have a post-it, any paper is fine.) Fold up the pieces of paper, and put them in a bowl. Have a parent or sibling pick a piece of paper and read the word in Spanish. As soon as you think you know what that word is, take the paper and stick it to that object in your house. See if you can do them all in less than a minute. How about 30 seconds? Hop on facetime (with permission) and challenge a friend to see who can get them all correct the quickest! Then, have some chips and salsa, and maybe some cheese dip, and celebrate the completion of a fantastic year!
