Lesson 1

Welcome to your first day of school! I wanted to give you one important reminder before you begin. Many of your lessons below have an internet link for you to click on. When you go to the different internet pages for your lessons, please DO NOT click on anything else on that page except what the directions tell you to. DO NOT click on any advertisements or games. DO NOT click on anything that takes you to a different website. Just stay focused on your lesson and then close that window and you should be right back here for the next lesson. Okay?

  1. If you didn’t get here through My EP Assignments, I suggest you go there and create an account.
  2. This course has an offline version and a printables workbook. Scroll up for links.

Parents: Please decide about buying workbooks or printing out the worksheet packets for the year. You’ll want those worksheets available when they come up in the curriculum.

(*)Following Directions — I write a lot of directions on here. Read them carefully and follow ALL of them. If you don’t understand, ask for help. Practice with this following directions worksheet. (note that an asterisk in parentheses indicates an optional printable. You can easily read this worksheet and follow the steps on a separate sheet of paper. This worksheet is not in the workbook for that reason.)

An important reminder as you are beginning the year…If you click on a link and the link is not working, please do not just skip it or find something similar to use. Let your parent know so that we can get this fixed right away for you and for other users.

Spelling

  1. Play this spelling game. Choose level 1. Click the arrows to find the correct letters. The last letter may be blank. Use the arrows to find the blank you need.
  2. This is the end of your work for this course for your first day. You are allowed to move at your own pace (this is homeschooling), but it’s intended you complete one lesson a day.

Lesson 2

Writing

  1. Describe what tongs look like. Write “I think tongs look like” and then finish the sentence. (There’s an optional writing page in your printables packet/book or you can just use your own paper.)

Lesson 3

Writing

Lesson 4

Writing

Lesson 5

Grammar

  1. Find the common and proper nouns.
    • When nouns are names, they are called proper nouns and are always capitalized. They always start with a capital letter.
    • Some examples: name of a person is Mary; name of a place is California; name of a thing is Oreos. If the noun is a name and starts with a capital letter, it is proper.
    • If it doesn’t, then we call it just a common noun.
  2. Now try this capitalization activity.
    • What words should be capitalized? Proper nouns and the first letter of a sentence, right?
    • Make lowercase the words that shouldn’t be capitalized. Make capital those that should be. Use the arrows to get to the letters.

Lesson 6

Spelling

  1. Remember, a contraction is a shorter way of saying something. Can’t means can not. I’m means I am. She’ll means she will.

Lesson 98*

Grammar*

  1. *Print out and fill in this past tense worksheet.   Then check the answers.
  2. You are going to write the verbs in the past tense. To write verbs in the past tense, most of the time you add -ed to the end of the verb, like this:  laughed. Here are some spelling rules:
    • If it ends in an e, don’t write “eed!” You just need one e. You can skip the e at the end and add –ed, like this: bake –> baked (not “bakeed”).
    • On this worksheet, if it ends in the letter y, then you change the y into an i and add the -ed, like this: carry –> carried; try –> tried)
    • Give it a try. It’s not as hard as it sounds. This is like your plural spellings. Remember? cry –> cries –> cried
    • The first verb is race. Today I am going to race, but yesterday I raced. Raced is a past tense verb. You did it in the past. You already raced.
