Good Morning 3D! Happy Heathcote Spirit Day! Look at Charlie cheering on Heathcote! Take pictures showing your spirit and tweet to #heathcotepride
To my sweet class that I miss so much. Watch this
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!
Please remember to visit the specials websites: Heathcotegateway E-Learning option
Remember to check out Mrs. Bescherer’s Google Classroom: 3rd Graders MUSIC Google Classroom
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.
REMINDER: After completing your work everyday PLEASE press share and include my email, so I can view your slides promptly.

ELA- POETIC DEVICE: LINE BREAKS
Heart maps, shape poems, and font/punctuation poems are past due, please make sure yours is on Seesaw.
Watch the video below to hear how to use line breaks with your poems:
Once you have watched this lesson, take the time to think about your own poetry and come up with a creative poem that you can upload to Seesaw using appropriate line breaks mentioned in the video. Remember to use line breaks to highlight rhythm, rhyming, when to slow down or speed up, or when you want the reader to notice something, 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. I can’t wait to see of your poetry work.
Poetry Websites: Read 10 minutes or so for poetry
- Poetry Foundation
- And one for fun: Read, Write, Think (this is a great site to create your own digital magnetic poems)
Please complete 20 minutes of independent reading. Some of you may be finishing your fiction books. Don’t forget about Storyworks, Scholastic News, Epic and True Flix on the library databases if you need to read something else.
Also, please remember to post on your own blog about your reading work if you haven’t done so yet. You can explain that every story has a story mountain and you can include a picture of the one you are either creating or created. Another idea would be to post a list of problems and your character’s reactions to the problems Characters Face and React to Trouble. Another option could be to add a relationship timeline that shows positive and negative relationships to the main character. Last, maybe add your secondary character chart Secondary Character Organizer: Are they advisors, sidekicks, or challengers? Your blog post should be a reflection about what you are learning and doing as a reader. Please remember to include a picture of one of these jots. This is due today.
Math: Area and perimeter composite figures
Please watch the video below made by Ms. Boyer as she solves two composite figure word problems.
After watching the video please complete two composite figure word problems. You can take a screenshot and do a tutorial on Seesaw or Screencastify using writing tools to show us your thinking. If you use Screencastify please include the link in your E-Learning Slideshow. I can’t wait to see what you do.
REFLEX MATH– 3 green dots due by today
Science- INTRO TO WEATHER
This is past due. If you didn’t include your observations or comparisons of two US cities to Scarsdale, today is your chance to add them under science in your E-Learning Slideshow.
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?
