12/17/20 Homestead Studies Round Two, Day 1

Dear 6-9 Families,
Arlington Public Schools are closed on file:///C:/Users/jmorgan/Downloads/Homestead%20Studies,%20Round%20Two%20(2).pdfThursday, so we will be moving to Homestead Studies, Round 2, Day 1.  These new Homestead Studies Round 2 were sent home about a month ago, and have everything your student will need to complete Days 1, 2 and 3.  
For Thursday, we're on Day 1.  I've attached the Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 here.  Any associated worksheets for the subject area assignments were photocopied and enclosed in the folders.  However, the folders are often lost or misplaced, so we have been asked to supply a scanned copy in the subject-area Google Classroom sites as well.  
For 6th grade Day 1, the subject areas are Reading (read 20 min.), Math, Social Studies, and Art.  Math has two options that are on the Math Google Classroom from Ms. Hickey or a worksheet assignment in the folder.  Social Studies has worksheet and Google Classroom options, which can be found on the Social Studies Google Classroom from Mrs. Meehan, and Art has options that are shown below.  These Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 grids are found in the Homestead Studies folders as well.
For Reading there are no Storyworks or other associated online or worksheet assignments.  To simplify things, students are expected to read.  (They're great readers, and should have The Westing Game on their laptops, as a suggestion.) 
I certainly didn't expect this, and was anticipating the students being able to take the Adjectives test before break.  I am sure that we'll be back on Friday, and we will definitely take it, even a shortened even/odd version, then so that the students don't worry about taking it and/or have holiday brain drain. 
If there are any questions or concerns, please contact me at [email protected].  See you on Friday for Dress Down/Dress Up for Christmas!
