Dragon Challenge #9


Share the most awesome or impressive thing with us. Explain why it is the most awesome or impressive thing.


Record a video, or photograph yourself next to the thing, and write an explanation.  Send the video to ajones@trinidadusd.net



Dragon Challenge #10


Draw the best picture of your face without looking. Your adult will put a piece of paper in front of you, and a crayon, or pen or pencil in your hand, and then blindfold you with a scarf or towel or bandana. No peeking! (Adults -- be careful they don’t draw off the paper!)


It is okay that your picture looks nothing like you. We expect that. You couldn’t see! 


Send a photo of your real face next to your drawn face to ajones@trinidadusd.net

Dragon Challenge #11


Put on a jacket, but stay inside your home. Stuff the most things inside your jacket. Record yourself after everything is inside your jacket, and then remove the jacket to show us the things. When you open your jacket, things will fall out. So, your adult decides whether the things you want to stuff inside are okay to stuff inside.  Send the (under 1 minute) video to ajones@trinidadusd.net


If possible, count your stuffed things and tell us how many there were.

Dragon Challenge #12


Make and wear the best hat for a person in your home OR for a stuffed animal. Use paper, cardboard, kitchen bowls or anything else around you. Decorate your hats!


You can be the person wearing the hat if you like.


Send a  photo of the person, or the stuffed animal, wearing the hat you made to ajones@trinidadusd.net

Dragon Challenge #13


Make the most dramatic entrance into a room. Wear a costume OR a towel cape OR declare “Tah duh!” OR do anything else to make your sudden entrance into the room exciting for those of us watching the video. Send the video to ajones@trinidadusd.net.

Writing tips:  Write the words out on a separate piece of paper for your child to copy. Phonetic spelling is shown above for the sample sentences, but if your child knows the actual spelling, that’s good too. Emphasize proper capitalization and using “two finger” spacing between words. Work on keeping letters grounded on the line instead of way above or below or through the writing line.
