Friday April 3rd – 3L Work

Wow! I love hearing your beautiful poetry and adorable voices sharing your poetry on seesaw. Your heart maps are melting my heart! The colors, the people, the places and the many things you hold dear to your heart are all so beautiful! Thank you for sharing!!

Heathcote Herald: Fatty Bird!

Today is Heathcote Spirit Day! Wear your Heathcote Colors!

Wear your best Heathcote spirit wear today and dance to your favorite song! We may not be able to celebrate together but we can in spirit!

A little happiness to brighten your day! Hope you enjoy this video that we all made for you! Miss you so very much!

 

I’ll see you at our small group sessions today. I will share the link with you prior to your session. Please be patient as I am doing a couple of groups today and may be running a bit late. Each session is a half hour. Please have your reading passages printed out and a highlighter and pencil ready to go. Can’t wait to see you!

I hope you all had a wonderful experience seeing your special area teachers. I spoke with them and they were thrilled to see all of your smiling faces! Apologies for the challenge with the links.

Below is our link for the question padlet. Feel free to post any questions you may have! 

Question Padlet

Remember to plan out your day. Do an assignment. Take a mental break (go outdoors, listen to music, play a board game – whatever you need.) Then come back and tackle another assignment. That seems to be the best approach and one where you can get the most out of your day!

Read for 30 minutes of an independent book!

Mrs. Sorenson wanted us to remind you about all the reading opportunities (Reading Materials) she has on her E-Learning page. Please remember on the Library Databases you can read ebooks from the library’s catalog.

Poetry Lesson #4

Notice how line breaks are purposeful and meant to draw your attention to certain words and force you to pause in your reading. As you look through poetry and even write your own, note how line breaks you see or line breaks you create help the reader focus on the important ideas, words or patterns in your poetry. Grab a pencil, record some poetry and then share what you have written on seesaw! I can’t wait to read it!

Math

Mrs. Boyer has shared with us a review of Composite Figures! Watch the video to be reminded of the strategy.

Composite Figure Practice Slides

Copy and paste the slides from the link above to your E-Learning Slideshow. Take a screenshot of the slides and upload them to seesaw so you can talk over them and explain your thinking.  I can’t wait to hear your work! Good luck 3L!

Social Studies: Document Analysis

A first hand account is when someone who lives in a particular time writes about his/her own experience of an event. Some examples may be diaries, telegrams or letters. Remember that many people attending the same event, may retell the event differently from another person’s experience of that exact same event. Therefore, listening to and reading about the same event from many different sources helps us to understand history more fully!

Below is a video of a document being analyzed. Watch the video and then the link below is for you to analyze your own document. Add those slides to your E-Learning Slideshow.

 

Document Analysis – Student Work

You should now be finished with your Cultural Universals Slideshow! I’ll be looking through them and making suggestions or corrections as needed.

Science-  INTRO TO WEATHER

Use one of the weather links below to check your local weather forecast. Do you see some of the features mentioned in the videos from yesterday?  How does that compare to the weather in places around the country? Choose two US Cities to quickly compare to Scarsdale. Write a few sentences telling what you noticed. Take a picture, label weather, date and put under science.

Optional Coloring

Relax, unwind and color away! A great stress reliever for me is to take out a coloring page and enjoy some quiet time to myself!

Wow your heart maps you shared were amazing! I love learning more about some of my favorite people through your Mrs. Mangan introduces us to the poetic device of white space and line breaks. Listen to her lesson and think: “How might I use this poetic device in my own poetry?”

Once you have watched, take the time to think about your own poetry and come up with a creative poem that you can upload to Seesaw using the poetic devices of line breaks and white space. Once on Seesaw, click the “add” button and then you will be brought to this screen:

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!

Poetry Unit Introduction:

Heart Mapping – Writing from the Heart

Here is the link for your own heart map to be printed out: Heart Map (when you print it, go to settings and play with the size in order for it to fit the page or be the exact size you want)

Heart Map is due on Wednesday  – make sure it is decorated and ready to be uploaded to Seesaw. 

This week we will be starting our poetry unit. One way to get ourselves started is to create a heart map. The video above is of all the 3rd grade teacher’s heart maps.

Some questions to help you get started heart mapping: 

  • What memories have you stored in your heart (they don’t have to be BIG or exciting memories. For example, the smell of molasses cookies baking in the oven at my grandmother’s house is an important memory to me because it was something she would always do.) 
  • What people have been important to you – and why? 
  • What are some experiences or events that you will never forget? 
  • What happy or sad memories do you have? 
  • What secrets do you keep in your heart? 
  • What things or objects are important to you — for example, a tree in your backyard or a stuffed animal, etc.? 
  • What’s at the center of your heart – you might want to place the most important people, memories, and experiences in the center? 
  • Ask yourself if you want to keep some things inside your heart and less important things on the outside of your heart. 
  • Do you want to draw more than one heart – good and bad; happy and sad; secret and open – and include different things inside each heart? 
  • Do different colors represent different emotions, events, and relationships?

Math

Today we will review and summarize AREA concepts that we have completed over the past two weeks.  Please watch the Math Antics video below to capture the big ideas. Afterwards, please watch the video made by Mrs. DeGrazia to help visualize the different measurements of square units. It is important to remember to label the correct square units when using area. Last, complete the three word problems.

Math Antics Video:

Mrs. DeGrazia’s Video:

Complete 3 math word problems (Please copy and paste ALL in E-Learning Slideshow under math, date and label)

Social Studies

Photograph Analysis: In this video, there is an example of analyzing a photograph/illustration using the See, Think, Wonder template that we have utilized in our science units of study. You will learn how to analyze a photograph/illustration by making observations about the people, objects and activities. You will then learn how to look at the “main idea” of the photograph by thinking about what activities you observed happening in the picture. Then some example wonderings are shared with you based on the illustration. Watch this video. A google slideshow has been shared with you showing the next photograph/illustration you will be analyzing using the See, Think, Wonder template.

Social Studies

We are starting a new Social Studies unit on Cultural Universals. We will be studying the five categories of universals: Politics, Social Aspects, Economics, Beliefs and Cultural Arts.

This will be a long-term project that we think you will really enjoy! Our next social studies unit will be about the Cultural Universals. What that means is that all cultures, within a country and around the world, share certain ideas and ways of life. We may all have different types of dance, but we all dance. We may all have different ways of dressing, but we all wear clothes!

The third grade team invites you think about your life in Scarsdale. What are the ways you get from place to place, what does your family value, do you celebrate any specific holidays? Some answers you will be able to find on your own, others you will need to ask your family and some you may need to use the internet to research. Good luck!

The Google Slides called, Cultural Universals Project, has been placed in your Social Studies folder for you already. Feel free to fill it out directly on the slides (erase the lines and type your answers) or print it out to hand write the information.
