Math- composite Figures

Today we will talk more about composite figures, or irregular shapes. That is a shape that can be divided into more than one basic shape. For instance the letter H can be looked at like three rectangles put together.

Check out this Khan Academy Video and continue the exploration by watching the remainder of the videos and practices on the left hand side. Listen carefully because this is a tricky concept that we will continue to look at. There is no “worksheet” practice due today, just complete the practice from Khan Academy. Try your best, not to worry if you get some wrong, we will be spending the rest of the week practicing this.

DMC #7

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. Click on the Google slideshow showing the next photograph/illustration you will be analyzing using the See, Think, Wonder template. Copy and paste the slides into your own E-Learning Slideshow or print them out and upload them later. Due Tomorrow.

ELA: Role of Secondary characters

Please complete 30 minutes of independent reading. This reading, if fiction, will help you with your Seesaw activity today.

The main character in a fiction book has all types of people around him/her. Some are advisors, those who support them and give them advice. Others are sidekicks, people who are friends they have fun with! Lastly, some secondary characters are challengers. Those are usually the “enemies” in a text. The people who make the main character mad, upset or uncomfortable.

Log into Seesaw (Check the Heathcote Gateway for instructions.)

Ela- hand washing

You have probably been hearing a lot about hand washing recently. Read about two engineers who created a solution to a very common problem, not washing your hands well enough. Answer the questions at the end by either copying and pasting the slides into your own E-Learning Slideshow, writing just your answers on the slideshow, or printing it out and uploading a picture to your drive.

Hand Washing Innovation

Keep reading 30 minutes a day of your independent reading. Try to find a quiet space where you can concentrate and sustain your focus for the full 30 minutes. Need a suggestion? Go to our Seesaw class and check out the book reviews our class made last week!

math- Negative Space

Negative space is the space in the background of a figure. Watch the lesson above to see how you can use negative space to help you think about finding area.

social studies- Cultural Universals of Scarsdale (Class Zoom Lesson @ 10:00)

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 is the culture of 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 or print it out to hand write the information.

Friday, March 20th E- Learning

Today, is Seesaw Friday! Today’s activities allow you some time to record your thinking both in writing and through your voice. I can’t wait to hear your thinking through your own voices.

Make sure you consult the Heathcote Gateway to ensure you are logging into Seesaw correctly. Mr. Casal has created a tutorial that will answer all your questions. You can use a computer or an iPad to use Seesaw.

Any questions? Post them here: E-Learning Questions

Make sure you are still keeping up your reading stamina and volume. Want to discover new non-fiction books? TrueFlix. (Username: hcote Password: flix)

Ela-Book reviews

I am sure you have been reading up a storm these past few weeks. Today I want you to pick one of the best books you have read recently and think about giving it a review. A book review helps other readers decide if they want to read the book as well. Once we have everyone’s reviews we will have an amazing list to look at when we need help choosing a book.

Use this template before you record in Seesaw to brainstorm your review. Book Review Brainstorm

This is the background you will see when you record your review in Seesaw.

 

Once you have your review written, record your ideas by using your voice on the Seesaw activity I have assigned to you called, Book Review. Don’t forget to take a picture of the cover! Or even draw a picture of the cover and take a picture of your creation!

Math- draw your own area

In Seesaw you will see an activity called, Measuring Area. You will have to create three shapes all with the same area. Please explain in your recording how you found the area. Try to push yourself to think in terms of an array, like 2 sq. units  x 4 sq. units = 8 sq. units, instead of just counting the squares.

Follow the directions in Seesaw. Don’t forget to press the check mark when you are done to submit your answer.

I’m going to put in a daily math challenge (DMC). Try these two puzzles if you’re feeling up to it!  DMC #1

It might be easiest to print the pages out. If you want to put them on your slideshow it is easiest to take a picture, then download it to your drive or desktop and import it from there. Or you can write the answers in the math section of your E-Learning Slideshow with the title, Workbook B Page 174 and today’s date. Of course, use any scrap paper you might need to do the work.

E-Learning

Hello Third Graders!

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.                           

     E-Learning Questions

 

Monday, March 16th E-Learning

You can complete the activities any time during the day that works for you and your family. I know that being able to access a computer or other device might be challenging with your family at home right now. Also, just like in class, everyone works at a different pace and finishes tasks at a different time. If you are a fast finisher and feel like you need additional activities, don’t forget to use the Useful Websites tab of my blog.
