E-Learning Tuesday March 31

Good morning! 

It was great to have 100% attendance in our Zoom session this morning! Thank you all for showing up. I’ve loved looking at your work today – so many thoughtful responses to the See,Think,Wonder, several beautiful heart maps and detailed responses to the Cultural Universals work. Keep it up third graders! You are all amazing 🙂 

As you begin to plan your day, make time for snack & recess. Taking a mental break and a screen break is really important! Be sure to plan at least one special today by visiting the Heathcote Gateway and seeing what your teachers have waiting for you. 

Our question Padlet is still active, so please add your questions here: E-Learning Questions

We have a special Zoom session planned for this morning with Ms. Stile joining to read the book of the month to us. The link is in your social studies folder. I’ll see you at 10:30.

Complete your heart map and upload it to SeeSaw. Use the mic icon to record yourself telling us all about your map. Once on Seesaw, click the “add” button and then you will be brought to the media screen –

You can take a picture using Seesaw (on iPad or phone) or upload a photo using  a computer.

Explore: Today I would like you to explore some different poems using these various websites provided below.

Poetry Websites:

If you are feeling up to it, after you have explored, take the time to think about your own poetry and come up with a creative poem that you can upload to Seesaw. You may decide to write it on paper and take a picture, draw it out with the texting tool, record yourself reading your poem, upload an image of the poem or type it in the note option. Then use the mic to record yourself. We can’t wait to hear all the beautiful poems you will be writing!
