We are just about to dive into our exploration of multiplication. Multiplication can be thought of as repeated addition, drawn in arrays and groups, or looked at on a number line.
Check out these videos and practice activities from Khan Academy. There is a menu on the far left of the page that lists everything that you can do today. Please go one by one and scroll to the bottom until you are done watching all videos and completing all of the practices.
Did you know that magnets have a force of their own? Much like the pushing and pulling we have been talking about, magnets make things move. Watch the Generation Genius Video to start thinking about magnetism as a force.
We have kicked off our reading unit on Mysteries. It is a special type of fiction, where the writer includes clues, suspects, crime solvers and a really big mystery that the reader needs to try to solve before the crime solver does.
Please respond to the following question:
Do you like reading mysteries? Why or why not?
Please type this in a Google Doc in your READING folder. Title it “Mysteries”
This should be at least a paragraph, with a topic sentence (“I like reading mysteries.”)
And several supporting sentences to support your opinion. (“I like mysteries because…”)
Please check your work and make sure your Google Doc is just the way you want it before we post it to our blogs later today.
As we prepare for our first math assessment in third grade I thought putting together a collection of Khan Academy tutorials might be helpful. Work on them at school or check it out tonight while you are studying. Happy practicing!
