What a year this was! Recording your thoughts, interests and ideas about a time period is always a great way to reflect and grow. Plus, it’s really fun to look back at it when you get older 🙂

Check out this activity where you can jot down your ideas all about third grade. You can print it out to write, or edit with Kami (rotate to get it right side up) and print to save.

Wellness Week ~April 6-10

 

Please watch the video to understand Wellness Week better.

 

Good morning 3rd Graders!

Welcome to Wellness Week! Throughout the week, teachers will be offering workshops, lessons, and activities that will explore the ways in which we connect with ourselves, others, and the wider world. This week you will have the opportunity to take part in so many different experiences. We hope you all take the time to enjoy new independent learning opportunities and enjoy time with your families. 

Participation and Attendance:

Workshops and activities are listed by age range AND starting times (9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 1:00 p.m.) on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  The district realizes many families within our school community need flexibility on Thursday and Friday to engage in religious observance, all activities and sessions will be pre-recorded and noted in BOLD.

As you work through this week, there are three sessions daily that you are expected to participate in. You should choose from the activities paired to our grade level, or within our grade level bands. Some of these activities will be with teachers who are conducting the lesson live while other sessions are pre-recorded activities that you can choose to watch at a moment when you have free time during that day. The district has a reflection form for you to fill out after you have completed the activities for the day. 

Directions to Access the Menu of Activities and Submit Daily Attendance:(this was sent to your parents in a separate email)

Step 1: Click on this link.

Step 2: Click on the activity that interests you under the appropriate time and age range.

Note: For synchronous activities, if you haven’t already, download the Zoom client or Zoom mobile app to the device that you will be using to participate in the activity. Students in grades 2-12 will need to log into Zoom with their Scarsdale Schools user account by clicking “Sign in with Google.” Students in grades K-1 will have to be signed in through an adult’s Zoom account.

Step 3: Follow the directions for the activity or click on the zoom invite and engage in the live session.

Step 4: Fill out a daily attendance/reflection form and submit.

 

Have a wonderful week! We wish you a Happy Passover and Happy Easter!

Forces

We have been learning about balanced versus unbalanced forces. Today we learned about friction. We learned through our investigations that friction is a force that affects the motion of objects.

Click on the video link below from Brainpop to learn more about forces. When you finish, click on the padlet and write something you learned from the video. Please put your initials and use correct spelling and punctuation.
