March 30th Instructions

Hello Parents,  Below you will find the instructions and lessons for each subject area for the week of March 30. Most of the materials for these lessons were sent home with your child on Friday, March 13. You can either screenshot or snan your child’s completed work and send it to my email,; or your child can bring it back to school April 6. If you have any questions please email me, send a pass-a-note, or text/call me.  I have also added some additional activities/websites your child can go to to supplement curriculum or give him/her extra practice.


Daily devotions begin with saying Luther’s Morning Prayer together. Then read to your child the devotion provided for each day. You will find the devotions on the links under the document section on Sycamore . If you are unable to find the devotion please choose your own either from online or a devotion book you have at home.

After the devotion, discuss and then your child may pick a song to sing. Suggested songs include: Jesus Loves Me, Praise Him Praise Him, I Just Wanna Be A Sheep, etc. 

Religion- Mary Listens to Jesus- Luke 10:38-42

*Read with your child the story found on page 5 of their green religion books. Discuss with your child the difference between Mary and Martha in the story and the importance of listening to God’s word. Explain to your child that God’s word is found in the Bible and it gives us eternal life because of Jesus’ death and resurrection. 

*Students will complete page 6. Talk about each picture and circle the child that is listening to God’s word. Talk about the student who is not listening, use the stickers from the middle of the book and put a heart sticker with the cross in the middle on that child as a reminder of Jesus’ love. Say the Bible verse together at the bottom of page 6. 

*Students will also complete the worksheet page 25- Whole Heart, they will connect the dots and color the picture. 

Memory- Blessed..are those who hear the word of God and keep it! Luke 11:28

Star Words- could, now, then, this

  * Students with help will write each word in a sentence. Make sure he or she is using a 

   capital letter and ending mark. We have been working on students spelling words    themselves so if words are not spelled correctly that is ok as long as the star word is spelled correctly.

In the lessons this week students will be using a hundred chart to count. 

*Lesson 11-5 students are learning to count forward from any number to 100. Students will look at page 649 start at the yellow number and stop at the red number coloring each number they say. Have students then count how many numbers they have counted aloud. Have students complete the rest of the lesson pages 650-652 doing the same thing. The instructions for each page are on the bottom of each page. 

*Lesson 11-6- students have been learning about decade numbers (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100) In this lesson they will need to know the number that comes right after the decade number so on page 655 they will circle 11, 21,31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, 91. Students will use the partial 100 hundred charts on pages 656-658 to find the missing numbers. The instructions for each number are on the bottom of the page.
