Hello 3rd Grade Families-
First of all, take good care of yourselves and each other.
I have added resources to the website that your student is familiar with. Feel free to access any of the resources to help guide your student's learning during this time. Please email me with any questions that arise.
I miss all of you and am looking forward to hearing from you!
Week of March 23-27
Hello 3rd grade families,
I hope everyone is staying safe, well, and have been able to enjoy some time in the beautiful weather we have been having this past week! The following is an example of things you can work on to help structure your learning this week:
1) Type a paragraph(s) about: What are you doing each day? , Have you had to use your math skills when baking or making something to eat?, Have you used any fractions? What have you done outside? Do you have a "Go Noodle" recommendation that you just loved doing? I also would like a paragraph telling me anything you want about yourself, family, pets, or friends. Remember: Open office 365 under managed bookmarks, Sign in, open a word document, it saves automatically, share with me in the upper right. Play around with the size and make the font different and insert a picture if you can figure out how!
2) Work on iready for 20 minutes each day. (Alternate between reading and math)
3) Read a book(s) and take an AR test(s).
4) Read at least 2 stories on Raz-kids this week and take the comprehension quizzes.
5) Complete 2-3 math pages in your math packet this week.
6) Read a Scholastic News or Science Spin magazine and complete the back page. If you want type up a summary about what your read in a word document and share it with me.
7) Read a book and complete one book summary or work on some pages from your March Extra Practice packet.
8) Make sure to check out the links I added under web resources on this page to help you continue learning at home. Don't forget typing master is available.
9) Take time to get some fresh air outside and spend time doing activities with your family. Have you tried the math array game? Type up a paragraph in office 365 and tell me what you thought about it. Remember to share it with me.
10) Read two non-fiction topics on pebble go. Summarize one in a paragraph in office 365. Share with me.

Week of March 30-April 3
Happy Monday!! I'm so glad that I was able to connect with so many families last week! I truly appreciate all the support that parents have been providing at home. I am also very proud of my students for making a huge efforts to continue their learning while we are away from school. This is a challenging time for everyone, but we will get through this together. The following is an example of things you can work on to help you structure your week of learning.
1) In office 365 please type the following assignment and share with me; Remember that a homophone is a word that sounds the same, but means completely different things. For example: fly-an insect with wings and fly-to become airborn. Another example is: light-not heavy, light-to set fire, light-a lamp. Come up with as many as you can. Remember thinking takes times and effort to come to an answer. This would be a fun activity to involve your family in...especially if they are competitive. See who can come up with the most homophones! Remember to go over each one to make sure they are correct. Whoever comes up with the most correct homophones wins! Make sure and let me know who the winner was!
2) Noun Review: Walk around your house and outside (if it's ok) and write down as many nouns as you can. Remember a noun is a person, place, or thing. Example: Ms. Milles, Florida, ocean. Then, type them up in 365. Then do the same thing with verbs: show action or a state of being: run, jump, is, do, be, has. Finally see if you can come up with super silly sentences using your nouns and verbs to make silly sentences. For example: Ms. Milles ran and jumped her way to Florida wearing her purple sneakers.
Remember: Open office 365 under managed bookmarks, Sign in, If it asks you to type a password type in: your lunch email@example.com.,open a word document( it saves automatically) share with me in the upper right. Play around with the size and make the font different and insert a picture if you can figure out how! This is a great way for me to give your child feedback on their work. I can type in their 365 document and share it back. It can be shared back and forth as many times as needed, and parents can type their questions if any at the bottom and them I can reply.
2) Work on iready for 20 minutes each day, (Alternate between reading and math) Try to get 45 minutes for reading AND math each week.
3) Read a book(s) and take an AR test(s). AR is available during school hours only. You should be reading 40-55min/day to keep up with your skills.
4) Read at least 2 stories on Raz-Kids and take the comprehension quizzes.
5) Complete 2-3 pages in your math packet this week.
Practice your multiples 1-5:
Then write, or type equations. For example: 1x1=1, 2x2=4, 3x2=6 etc.
7) Read a Scholastic News or Science Spin magazine and complete the back page. In addition, write 5 facts you learned from reading the magazine and type them up in an office 365 document and share with me.
8) Work on some pages in your March Extra Practice packet this week. If you have already finished, feel free to begin working on your April Extra Practice Packet.
9) Read two non-fiction topics on pebble go. Summarize one in a paragraph in office 365. Share with me.
10) Be sure to check out the new links I've added under "Interesting Web Resources" on this page. Please explore ate least one this week that is new or of interest to you.
11) Be sure and take time to get out and get some fresh air and exercise each day.
As we continue to learn at home, I would welcome students to send/share any of their work with me through office 365. IF this is not possible, an email would work just fine. I would love to see what you are working on and I would be happy to give feedback or answer questions about the current assignments. I will also be checking your iready reading and math minutes each week, and your progress on Raz-Kids and AR. Remember, AR is available to take quizzes during school hours. Congratulations to all the students who have been working on reading, their assignments and taking AR tests. Your efforts are noticed and appreciated. I will be checking in with families either by phone or email this week to see how things are going. Please note that when I call you to stay within district policy I will need to block the number I am calling from. Please do not hesitate to email me with questions or supports that you may need.
