👋🏻☀️🌎Good Morning! Here’s another fun accomplishment. Our Super Scientists Celebration! We conducted experiments to make raisins dance, create tie-dye milk and watch a Skittles’ rainbow appear in between presenting our Who Am I? projects.
Morning Work – After looking at these pictures, what will you add to your Gratitude Jar today?💗
Take some time to read each others’ blogs and leave a comment or two. Thanks for staying connected!🙌🏼💕👊🏻
Morning Meeting– Listen to Say Something.
Your voice matters! What message will you share? What are your hopes and dreams? What would you like to say to your class? With your art and words, create a mini-poster share with your classmates. Take a picture of it and post it on your blog. If you can’t do that, email it to me, and I will add it to a post it for you.
Let’s send each other off with grateful hearts and caring wishes.
If you’re not sure what this means, there is an example on my blog.💕🌎☀️ Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not strong enough, or smart enough or brave enough! Look at what you have done this year in 3rd grade. 😎🤩🥳
🌎 Social Studies and Reading📚
📖🇺🇸Shared Reading – Listen to Austin Lost In America. What fun fact is shared about your state as Austin travels through it to find his forever home?
Take a break, go outside, run around, sing, play a game, make some art.📚
Independent Reading – Keep reading each and every day! Find a nice quiet place to read and enjoy at least 30 minutes with a great book. Reading about your state counts during this time too! 🏜🇺🇸⛰🗽🤠 You might want to read one of your classmates’ state post. Max, Sophie, Vera, Edward, and Brady have shared the Wonders of their states.
At the end of reading, choose two or three things from the Book Talk Questions grid when you leave a comment about what you read today on the blog.📖 If you read about your state. Share an interesting fact.
Go outside, have some lunch, play a game, practice your recorder. Relax.
✏️Writer’s Workshop – If you’ve got a writing project to finish, please work on that. If you’d like to work on your state research and blog post, that’s a fine thing to do.📝
If you’re ready for a new writing idea, here are today’s optional Quick Writes:
- In what area of learning do you feel you made your biggest improvements?
- What is something you taught your teacher of classmates this year?
- What was the best piece of writing that you did this year? Why do you think it is your best?
- Imagine you are going to build the world’s largest sandcastle. What would it look like? Who would you ask to help you?
- If the power went out this summer what would you do? How would you stay cool? What would you do without TV/electronics?
- Other ~ whatever topic you’d like to write about today.
Read the prompts, think for a minute or so, choose a topic and write for a full 10 minutes without stopping. At the end of 10 minutes you choose – are you done, do you have a different idea, do you want to keep going. It would be fun to see some of your writing on your blog this week.
Next, here are today’s problems to choose from. These are all solved with multiplication. 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!
