Hello again to my sweet families!

I know this is not easy, but you all are doing an amazing job! I truly miss each of you and look forward to the day we can be in our classroom together! 

Feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.  My plan this week is to once again give my students some assignments that will be familiar to them as well as new lessons.  I will also include some “extra” sheets for any of you who would like more to do!

My email is and I will be checking it often.  I would love to hear from you all to see how you are doing!

Send the work back to school in the ziplock bag I have provided.

Last week, I sent home a geometry lesson on two-dimensional shapes .  This week we will look at three-dimensional shapes. (3-D shapes) 

Look at the 3 pictures to learn new words: face, edge, vertice.

Look through the 6 three-dimensional shapes and their names.   Some are kind of funny, I know!  Notice these shapes have mass 

 and take up space.  For example…..a sphere is like a ball, a rectangular prism is like a kleenex box, and a cylinder is like a can of soup.    

 Use the pictures I have cut out, and stack them on the 6 different types of shapes. For example, put the plant on sphere 

 and the present on cube. (do not turn in) 

 Complete Math Lesson 15.1- Only do the problems I have circled. (turn in)

**I can’t put the words on here because I am not able to do the “think to spell” markings.
