    Dear Students and Parents,

    Below is a list of learning opportunities across all subject areas to offer instruction and challenge during the upcoming week.  Please DO NOT feel overwhelmed.  Do whatever fits best with your family routines and school work schedule.  You and your child can contact me through email and I'll help/assist as needed.  

    Google Meets: We will continue our morning class meetings at 9:30.  However, our Monday meeting will be cancelled this week.  I look forward to seeing everyone Tuesday morning.  I will also be setting up 15 minute small group or individual meetings to discuss your writing progress.  

    Thank you for your flexibility and support.

    Take care, 

    Mr. Eszes

    • Follow the directions at this link.  Be sure to "Test Your Knowledge" and try the extension activities!


    • If you haven't written and submitted your GPWAP on "The Lesson I Learned", please do so this week.  To start, make a new Google Doc, name it, and Share it with me.  Then use your amazing writing skills to create the best story you've ever written:) 
    • For those of you that have submitted your GPWAP on "The Lesson I Learned", I would like to have a meeting to discuss it with you.  I will be setting up meeting times with you on Google Meet. Have fun!  


    • Give your brain a workout with these math games on the Math Playground.  
    • Check out "Math with Mr. Fitz" every Tuesday at 2:00pm.  Log into a Google Meet with your student account and enter fitzmath as the nickname.  He looks forward to seeing you!    
    • Imagine Math (Log in through Clever) Try to pass at least 3 lessons this week.  Your ultimate goal is to complete your pathway.  I will be assigning you new pathways, so look for those.
    • Everyday Math online (choose McGraw-Hill's ConnectED from the drop down menu, then log in with your Google account information.  Then select Mr. Eszes 2019-2020) Lesson 6-13 should be your priority this week.  I would also like to see a video of you doing and/or teaching someone how to do long division.  Click here to see Bethany's. Great job and thank you, Bethany!!  Work on the journal pages, math boxes, and home links.  There are also games and "Do Anytime Activities" that can be accessed.  
    • We will be exploring division strategies for the next few weeks.  Everyday Math teaches a method that can be found on the above link.  All of your parents also know another way called Long Division.  If anyone knows or learns how to do long division, try making a tutorial video to share.  We could use it to teach each other.    

    Amplify Science Remote lessons:

    This week, we are starting a new unit called, "Waves, Energy, and Information".  In this unit, we will be trying to discover how a mother dolphin and her calf communicate underwater when they cannot see each other?  This will help us learn all about sound waves and how humans use patterns to communicate, too! 

    Mr. E's Mystery Challenge:

    "Home Classroom" video project:

    • Make a video, iMovie, picture slideshow, or other way to show us what your remote learning environment at home is like.  We would love to see what your classroom and day looks like while learning at home.  As always, have fun!!
