The specials teachers at SRES have developed a great weekday schedule for families learning at home. There are fun ideas from Mr. Crebs (Art), Mrs. Yurek (Library), Mrs. Doka (Music), Coach B (Physical Education), and Ms. Tuchawena (Technology).

If you can, show us what you're learning by having your parent/guardian take a photo or video of you and posting it on Facebook or Instagram and tagging @saltriverschools - we'd love to see what you're working on today!

Can't read the text or download the PDF? Here's what it says:

Special Area: Art with Mr. Crebs

  • On Monday, go outside and find a flower or a plant. Sketch of picture of your favorite one and label each part of the plant (research online or using an encyclopedia or ask a family member for help – do your best).
  • On Tuesday, use a pencil, pen, or crayon to trace your hand. What can you turn it in to? (besides a turkey!)
  • On Wednesday, find a variety of items to trace. Create a shapes collage. Label your pictures.
  • On Thursday, go outside and look toward the horizon. Sketch a picture of what you see. The horizon is the line at which the earth's surface and the sky appear to meet.
  • On Friday, draw a self-portrait and write about how you are feeling today. A self-portrait is a drawing of you done by you.

Special Area: Library with Mrs. Yurek

  • On Monday, read a book and draw a picture of your favorite character. Re-write the ending so the opposite happens.

  • On Friday, curl up with someone special and read a good book with them! Talk about your favorite part!

Special Area: Music with Mrs. Doka

  • On Monday, find a household item to turn into a drum. How does it sound? Practice a steady beat.
