Our Day – Tuesday, March 31 – Day 10

Good Morning! Thanks for meeting yesterday.  It feels so good to see your faces and hear your voices.  I am grateful for that opportunity.

Morning Work – I hope you will start your learning day by completing your weather graph, noting the temperature on the section of the graph you color in and the type of cloud you see.  Use the symbols on the cloud finder as labels.

Stop to put your gratefulness rock in your pocket.  Think of two new things you are grateful for as your day begins.  Then check out each others’ blogs and leave a comment or two.

Keep up with independent reading suggestions by checking out all of the daily reading comments you’ve all been leaving.


Morning MeetingHappy Gratitude Tuesday!  Listen to The Gratitude Jar by Kristin Wiens.   Find a container and make your own Gratitude Jar. (I’m using a yogurt container.) When things aren’t going well, it’s important to have some way of reminding ourselves that we can get through this!  Leave the jar plain or decorate it to match your personality.  The important thing is to make some strips of paper and to write something each day to add to your jar.  If you’d like to share your jar – please do by taking a picture and posting it on your blog.


Take a break, get a snack and move around.  If you’d like, here are two  Go Noodle videos here to dance to Roar and here, breathe and grow confident.

Reading, Writing, Science and Art

Shared Reading –  Today you’ll be working to finish your concept map about weather.  But first let’s start with a new poem:

Weather ~ by Meish Goldish

Weather is hot,                               Next listen to 

Weather is cold,                             Clouds by Ann Rockwell

Weather is changing                    You may want to

As the weeks unfold.                    add the cloud

Skies are cloudy,                           information to your 

Skies are fair,                                 concept map.

Skies are changing

In the air.

It is raining,

It is snowing,

It is windy

With breezes blowing.

Days are foggy,

Days are clear,

Weather is changing

Throughout the year!

When you finish your weather concept map, take a picture of it to post on your blog or send to me in an email.  We’ll use it tomorrow when we write.

Take a break, go outside, run around, make a Paper Ball Bunny,  play a game, make some art.

ReadingFind a nice quiet place to read and enjoy at least 30 minutes with a great book.  If you’re wishing for some new book/reading options you can find some fabulous picture book recordings at Storyline Online and recorded books here at Audible. The Elementary selections look great.  Enjoy!

At the end of reading today, choose two or three things from the Book Talk Questions grid when you leave a comment about what you read today on the blog.

Go outside, have some lunch, play a game, practice your recorder.  Relax.

Inquiry Workshop – Social Studies  –  Our goal is to have the travel journal (magazine) pages completed by the end of March – that’s Tuesday. I’ve now heard from 7 of you that you are done with your Travel Journal. Congratulations! 🗿🏯⛩🌋I hope to hear from more of you today.

Math – How about some chocolate for the first part of our math warm up?  Here are four pictures of chocolate.  Without telling us which picture you selected, please create a blog post sharing the four equations in the fact family represented by the box you chose.   After, that write one story problem that would fit with one of the equations in the family.













Here is an example of the math I hope to see on your blog post.  My example matches this picture of eggs  and not any of the chocolate choices you have.  I didn’t want to do the work for you. 😁

My fact family is:  





My math story problem is:  Vera had 6 eggs.  She wanted to dye them equally in three different colors: pink, green and blue. How many eggs of each color could she dye.

Complete this Fact Families and More worksheet to help you have even more practice with fact families in the second part of the math warm up.

If you’d like to create some of your own  Fact Family Triangles, you can get them here.

Next, here are today’s problems to choose from.  See if there are two that feel like just right challenges.   You can solve them in your journal or on a piece of paper.  It would be most helpful to put the color and the date the problem was posted.  Thanks!

Javey really likes goldfish crackers. 

He ate 128 in the morning for snack and 206 in the afternoon.

How many did he eat altogether that day?

He ate twice as many goldfish crackers the next day.  How many goldfish crackers was that?

Javey he ate only half as many on the third day as he had on the first day.  How many goldfish crackers was that?

How many goldfish crackers did Javey eat altogether in those three days?

Van was reading about space. 

He learned there were three different colors of stars in one picture.

There were 4,368 stars in the picture altogether. 

457 of the stars were white.

1,863 stars were red.

The rest of the stars were blue.

How many blue stars were in the picture?

Landin had 8 brownies that she wanted to share equally with five of her friends. (Landin and five friends make a total of six people sharing.)

When she was done – everyone had the same amount and there were no parts of the brownies left over

How did Landin cut up and share the brownies?  What portion did each person have?

Max collected shells at the beach.  He added 174 to his collection and now he has a total of 360 shells.

How many shells did Max start with?

Justin was walking along the beach.  He saw a flock of 15,362 birds.  How many total wings were in the flock. 

3,471 birds flew away from the flock as he watch them.  How many birds were left at the beach?

Elena brought 14 pizzas to a family party.  Each pizza had 8 slices. 

She and her family ate 74 slices of pizza. 

How many slices of pizza were left?

If you’ve worked through that, it’s definitely time for a game here at ABCya. If you want to try Prodigy talk to your parents.  Did anyone else find another game to recommend?  Leave the name in a comment so we can all have fun.Did anyone else find another game you like.  Leave the name in a comment so we can all have fun.

    • Hi Holden,
      Yesterday in the Shared Reading Science area of the day is the description of the concept map, a sample that I began and the link to a map. I know you don’t have a printer, but you can use the document and sample to create your own. It is a graphic organizer that we will use for writing in the next few days.
      Does that help you?
      Mrs. Eaves

        • Hi Holden,
          You submitted one yesterday. There were two days to work on it, if you wanted to use that amount of time. You may be all done, or you may want to see if you want to add any more details about clouds or any other information. We are going to use it as a guide for writing about weather.

  1. I read Ivy and Bean, and its about a girl named Bean who doesn’t want to be friends with a girl named Ivy, but in the end they do. I learned the word tightwad in it, and it means someone who doesn’t like to spend money.

  3. I read Berenstain Bears and the Messy Room by Stan and Jan Berenstain. I most of the time have a messy room. But right now it is clean. I also read the Berenstain Bears and the Sitter. My baby sitter’s name Courtney


    • Hi May,
      I haven’t read any Berenstain Bear books for a long time. They are fun. They always have an important message to think about.
      Do you have a favorite one?
      Thanks for sharing your reading
      You Rock!👍🏻

  4. I am reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I am almost on chapter 6. Harry got to the Weasley’s and Fred and George misplaced a wizard’s candy.They made it from a spell and it made Dudley’s tongue grow really long. They knew he was on a diet! Mrs. Weasley was not happy! Fred and George are BIG trouble makers.
    Ron’s oldest brothers Bill and Charlie are cool. Bill looks as though he is going to a rock concert! He wears earrings, clothes, and all that “pop stuff.” Charlie (who I think fights with dragons) has a burn on his arm. Bill and Charlie had a wrestling fight using tables. Hermione’s cat, Crookshanks, was chasing a gnome. I never knew gnomes could sprint or giggle. Bye! -Sophie

    • Hi Sophie,
      Thanks for sharing your reading. I think it would be fun to visit the Weasley family. I think it must be fun for Harry to visit there. While I wouldn’t like to have my tongue grow really long – I don’t mind that Dudley’s did.
      You rock
      👍🏻Mrs. Eaves

  5. I am still reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio now there is an conflict between Jack Will and Auggie because Jack Will was bad talking about Auggie’s face. I think i do have a connection with Summer because she helps Auggie. I think i help people to.

  7. Today I read “Clark the Shark”
    What conflict was there: The conflict was that Clark always wanted to be himself but he was the only shark, and he would go a little too crazy. Then there’s a new kid, his name was Sid the octopus, and everyone was scared of him because he broke all of the playground.
    How was it resolved: Clark said to himself, maybe if I rhyme it’ll remind me every time, and then it worked. And Clark made friends with Sid, which encouraged everyone else to play with him.

    • Hi Max,
      Thank for sharing you reading. What a fabulous job you did explaining the main part of the story mountain.
      This is a great story. It does remind us to be respectful, but empathetic too.
      You rock!
      👍🏻Mrs. Eaves

  8. I read Junie B. Jones Dumd bunny by Barbara Park.
    What happened in the story Junie b. went to Lucille house and Junie relly wants the gold egg. and Junie B. thinks May has bird parts. Lucille said that Sheldon is her boyfirend.


    • Hi Elena,
      Thank you for sharing your reading. Do you think Junie will get the egg? Or do you think another character will get it? Yesterday you said that Junie thought Lucille had a crush on Sheldon. I guess you were right. How does Sheldon feel about this?
