Welcome to Mr. Maneno’s Class.

Our Class


Hi all,

I miss school and working with you in class.  As a class, we are in good shape as far as the curriculum goes.  In science we only have sound and light left to learn.  In math we have number analysis (prime and composite, even and odd, and order of operations), probability and geometry.  In social studies, we still have the midwest, southwest, and the west.  We have learned and will continue to practice the reading and writing objectives.

 

Anything I send or suggest in the coming days and weeks is optional.  From my perspective, we need to be flexible.  Stay healthy first, and provide some normalcy and continuity second.  Reading is always the single most important thing.  This can be any genre of book, but also magazines, the internet, perhaps take the time to research any topic you are interested in.  I would shoot to read for at least twenty minutes a day.

 

Feel free to be creative and design some new scratch projects, learn Origami, or make some piece of art.

 

Again, stay flexible, stay healthy, and workout your brain a little each day...

Below are free online programs that have been created in response to the Novel Coronavirus and are designed to support students and families learning at home:


Lunch Doodles: This is Mo Willem's series, which posts daily at 1 pm, Monday through Friday

Draw Every Day with JJK: Jarett J. Krosoczka, creater of the Lunch Lady graphic novels releases a YouTube video every day at 2 pm focusing on a particular area of drawing 

Kids ask Authors: Grace Lin hosts a podcast Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays.  You can subscribe, submit questions, share poems and listen to past podcasts 

Publishers: One of the things that teachers will struggle with when posting things online are the copyrights of materials and books.  However, most publishers have recently posted videos of story times, drawing demonstrations, flashcards, activity sheets, and content for us all.  Three big ones are below.
Harper at Home
Holiday House Resources
Scholastic at Home
