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.

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.

Continue to work on the activities for this week’s words. A TIP: Do your writing sort on the last day that you want to hand in your activities. It erases your work so that you can come back to it day after day to practice. So the last day, the day you think you can “Turn in All,” do the writing sort so I can see all your great sentences/words.

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.

Ela- Storyworks

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.

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. 

  1. How would you define history? What does that mean if something is history?
  2. Brainstorm how we learn about history. (Don’t forget about places you can go!) Make a list. 
    • Books, internet, etc…
  3. Write WHY we learn about history. Why is history important for us to learn about?
  4. 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.

ELA: Reading & Poetry – “The Wind”

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.

The Wind Poem and Questions

Math: Area Review

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.)

PBS Learning- Area of Squares and Rectangles

Science: Intro to weather

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.

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.
