See you today at 10:00 for an extra special Zoom session for 3M. It is SPIRIT DAY, so wear your best Heathcote colors and apparel. We will also be checking out the birthday bags of Rupert, Sophie and Jake.
** Your Cultural Universals Project should be complete by the end of today.**
wellness: Coloring (optional)
Take a little time to unwind. Maybe in between activities or to start your day. Put on some music and pretend we are in class together working on our mandalas/coloring to refocus. Feel free to take a picture of any of your finished pieces and put them on your E-Learning Slideshow.
Please complete 30 minutes of independent reading. Don’t forget about Storyworks, Scholastic News, Epic and True Flix on the library databases.
Ela- poetic device: white space
Watch the video below to hear about using white space in a poem to create a shape. Then try to find some poems that use this technique, and try writing a shape poem of your own! Take a picture of it and record yourself reading it on Seesaw. Can’t wait to see your shape poems!
These slides focus on word problems that start with two examples. Please read the examples carefully. Complete the first two pages of Level 1. Problems #1- 6. Correction!! For # 5 the shading did not show up on the scanned version. Skip #5!
Copy and paste the two pages into your own slideshow to answer. Or print and add to slides later.
Check out my introduction video to the activities today! It is my first one, I will get better! 🙂
I have some new activities you might want to try today. As always, you can continue to work on Reflex Math, Typing Club, Tynker, any of the math or ELA games from my blog, and Scholastic News. Keep reading the books you have at home, or use Epic to keep up your reading stamina and volume.
Today you will read the story “Enemy Pie” that is located in the Storyworks, Jr. magazine. The link to that is here: StoryWorks, Jr. Reminder: you need to hit “Log In” at the top right hand side, select “I am a student” and our class code is: mangan3.
Once there, you will need to access the March/April edition and read the story “Enemy Pie”. There is an option to have the story read to you if you would like.
Throughout the story you will see “Pause and Think” questions. Copy and paste those questions on a new slide behind the ELA section of your “E-Learning Slideshow” and answer the questions. I will check in on your slides to offer any help and give feedback. Happy reading 🙂
math- Intro to perimeter
Now that you have worked a lot with area, there is another way in geometry that we think about the space of a shape. That is the perimeter. The perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape. Learn about and practice perimeter with our favorite, Khan Academy. If you’re interested, complete all the videos and practice listed on the left hand side, just like we do in class.
Print workbook pages out, write answers in slides or use a notebook to record.
Social Studies- how do we learn about history?
In the upcoming weeks we will be learning all about history and culture. Today I want to see your thoughts about the subject. In the E-Learning Slideshow, add a few pages in the Social Studies section to write your answers. The title can be, History. Put the date on the slide(s) as well.
How would you define history? What does that mean if something is history?
Brainstorm how we learn about history. (Don’t forget about places you can go!) Make a list.
Books, internet, etc…
Write WHY we learn about history. Why is history important for us to learn about?
BONUS: Create additional slides with any places you have been that have helped you learn about history. Feel free to include pictures from the internet or from your actual experience and writing telling us how that resource helped you learn about history.
cursive- Upper and lowercase practice
Click hereto print out some additional cursive practice.
Welcome back, 3M! If you didn’t get a chance to complete the work from yesterday you can absolutely do it today. I will keep adding activities daily for those of you who are excited and willing!
Remember to either print out the activities or add your work to the E-Learning Slideshow in your Google Drive Social Studies folder. If you choose to print the activities, you can always take a picture of your work and add it to the slideshow afterwards. I have enjoyed checking your work and leaving you comments.
Continue reading your independent reading books or discovering new texts with Epic.
Reading poetry can be different than reading prose, or the typical way text is written in books or articles. It is organized into lines and groups of lines that are called stanzas. (Stanzas are the paragraphs of poetry.)
Read the poem, “The Wind”. I made a Google Slides to view the poem and the questions. Print your answers or write them in the E-Learning Slideshow. You can put your answers in the ELA section with the heading “The Wind” and today’s date.
When we last saw each other we began exploring area and yesterday you had additional practice through BrainPopJr. Pay attention to some new vocabulary such as composite figures as you participate in this interactive video. (You will need a computer and run Flash to play this video.)
In our next science unit we will be investigating climate and patterns of weather. Watch the Mystery Science Slideshow (there is no audio) and, if you would like, use the See-Think-Wonder chart to record your observations and inferences.
I hope you are all doing well. I am excited to share with you some activities you can do while we are out of school. I will begin posting activities on Monday, March 16th.
For all of the activities you can record your work in a Google Slideshow that was shared with you and placed in your Social Studies folder on Google Drive. This slideshow is called, E-Learning Slideshow.
In that slideshow you will see that it is separated by subject area. As you complete an activity, record your thinking in that area. Add new slides when you need to.
If access to a computer is challenging, or you would prefer to hand write your work, feel free to print out the activities and keep your work in a folder.
If logging into any websites gives you trouble, remember to go through the Heathcote Gateway. Mr. Casal has given you directions and links to many resources that can be helpful during this time outside of the classroom.
If you have any questions about the activities over the next few days please use Padlet to get in touch with me. Here is the Padlet link to ask your question. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Good morning 3M! Take some time today to check out these videos about Ecosystems and Fossils. Our new science unit will talk a lot about these two scientific topics. Feel free to watch the videos (with your headphones on) and of course, read the books. Remember if you want the text read aloud, click the button on the top that says, “Read to Me.”
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.
