eLa- fantasy writing
Writers, today is the day you’ve been waiting for! For the first time ever, third graders are going to be writing fantasy stories. In order to do this type of writing well, there needs to be a structure that is followed. We know how creative you all can be and want this to be an awesome learning experience, so please take your time with today’s exercise in letting your mind wander. Get your pencil and notebook ready, and then watch this video.
- Get a pencil and paper ready to record ideas
- Watch Ms. Boyer’s intro to fantasy lesson
- Go to your Writing Folder to find the Slides, “Imaginative Narrative Part 1”
- Watch the video Ms. Boyer links to in the slides
- Show us your ideas! (Your idea generating time should be around 20 minutes.) Write your wonders and questions somewhere to share! E-Learning or Seesaw.
Math- Subtracting from meters
Today you will be learning how to subtract from meters. You will have to recall your knowledge of converting centimeters to meters and meters back to centimeters. You will also be reminded of some mental math strategies you have learned in previous units that might help you solve some of these problems. You will need a pencil and paper to complete this work.

Science–Mystery Doug (Optional)
We loved gathering together at the end of the day to watch a quick Mystery Doug! I collected a few you might be interested in. Since there are no specials this afternoon besides the daily Library session, maybe spend some time today checking out a few of these fascinating mysteries.
- How is glass made?
- How do flowers bloom in the spring?
- How old is the Earth?
- How does hand sanitizer kill germs?
On this day in 1767 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s first opera “Apollo et Hyacinthus”, written when he was 11 years old, premiered in Salzburg. I know Mozart has been featured in the smart facts section before, but can we just stop and recognize the genius that he was, having written his first opera at age 11. He was essentially a 6th grader when he did that. The Book of Henry, Gifted and Little Man Tate are stories/movies that feature child prodigies who struggle with their gifts and their desire to lead a normal life. Perhaps suggest one for your next family movie night?
