Our Day – Monday, April 6

Good Morning! I hope you had a great weekend!  I was able to visit my mom and dad – from afar- and bring them meals for the week.  They are doing well and dad feels as though he is gaining.  I hope you have positive news to share too.  We’ll meet this morning in Zoom at 10:00.

Morning Work – Let’s start our learning day by completing your weather graph, noting the date and temperature on the section of the graph you color in along with the cloud type you see.  Use the symbols on the cloud finder.

Stop to put your gratefulness rock in your pocket. Think of something new that you are grateful for as your day begins and add it to your Gratitude Jar.  Then check out each others blogs and leave a comment or two.

Keep up with independent reading suggestions by checking out all the comments you’ve each been leaving.  Keep reading each and every day!

Morning Meeting –  This week I have chosen books to remind you of the importance of celebrating yourselves. You are dealing with something no one else has ever done.  You are learning in a whole new way.  You deserve to be proud of yourselves.  You are doing it- we are doing it together.

Let’s start by listening to Calvin Can’t Fly – I love how unique Calvin and how he is connected to weather. 😁 When you finish listening take some time to complete this All About Me page, adapted from a page of The Big Life Journal. Write and draw on it to remind yourself of the things that make you unique and special.  If you’d like, post it on your blog or send a picture when you’ve finished it.

Take a break, get a snack and move around.  Here are two Go Noodle videos: move here with the Ball Is In Your Court and relax here with Victorious.

I suspect this is where our Zoom meeting will fit into Our Day.

Our last two chapter read-alouds were mysteries: The Mystery at Pine Lake and Winterhouse.

Let’s start a genre study about mysteries.

Shared Reading –  Instead of poems, let’s start this genre study with some riddles.  Just like mysteries, you have to solve riddles by thinking about what you know in new ways.

Riddle # 1 What’s bright orange with green on top and sounds like a parrot?

Riddle #2 There’s a one-story house where everything is yellow.  The walls are yellow. The doors are yellow.  Even all the furniture is yellow.  The house has yellow beds and yellow couches.  What color are the stairs?

Riddle #3 What’s really easy to get into, and hard to get out of?

If you’ve got the answer, leave it in a comment.

What makes a mystery and mystery?  Here is a Detective’s Dictionary to help answer that question.  Open it up and read the 11 words and their mystery definitions.  Did you learn any new words and phrases?

Here’s a our first mystery The High Rise Private Eyes Case #001 The Case of the Missing Monkey.   When you finish listening, we’ll use Ingredients of a mystery to name what we discovered.  Try to do it on your own before you check what I discovered here at 001 The Case of the Missing Monkey . Tomorrow I’ll ask you to try completing the form on you own.

Take a break, go outside, run around, sing,  play a game, make some art.

Independent 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.

Writer’s Workshop  –  Today we’ll continue writing about weather.  Here’s a review of the steps we’ve taken so far if you want to check back on our writing process.

We began with a lead on April 1.

Then we used our concept map to make a plan on April 2 and we learned about topic sentences and paragraphing.  You wrote about your first subtopic.

When you’re ready to write today go to all posts on your blog and open your weather draft.  Read your feedback and make revisions to your lead or paragraph.  Delete the feedback and add the next new paragraph(s) about that one subtopic.  Remember to use your elaboration strategies.  When you have finished writing about that subtopic  STOP and save your draft.  Don’t submit it.  You’ll be adding more the next time you write.

(If you have bits and pieces of your travel journal to finish up, do them when you have time.)

Inquiry Workshop – Social Studies  –  Let’s work on our souvenirs this week.  You might be able to find your souvenir planner in your blue folder.  Complete your planner – think about supplies you have on hand, talk to your family and then begin creating.  We’ll try to work on one each day this week.  The plan will be to submit a photograph of your completed souvenirs on Monday, April 13.

Math – We’ll keep practicing solving multiplication and division problems.  Some of the problems on the worksheet today use letters to represent the unknown.  For example: 12÷6 = b. The answer would be written b = 2.

Make sure you’ve got whatever you use for manipulatives (pennies, legos, beads…) near by so you can check your thinking if needed as you solve the problems on today’s warm up pages: More Story Problems 1 and  More Story Problems 2 

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!

Anna had a collection of stones.  She had 1,473 stones that had quartz crystals in them.  She had 856 that had feldspar in them.  How my stones did she have altogether?

Anna friends gave her 247 stones made of agate.  How many stones did she have then?

Van had a collection of 12,000 Legos before he began building robots out of them.

He used 2,485 bricks to make the first robot, 3,067 bricks to make the second robot and 918 bricks to make the last robot.

How many Lego bricks did he use in all to make the three robots?

How many Lego bricks did he have left to use for other projects?

Piper organized her craft supplies.

She sorted and counted 1,327 beads, 2,684 stickers and 857 feathers.

Each basket held 134 Legos of each color.

How many Legos were in each basket?

How many Legos did Justin have altogether?

Elena went to a farm.  She saw three pigs, three cows and fifteen chickens.

How many animal legs did she see altogether on the farm?

How many animal eyes did she see altogether on the farm?

Max was in charge of organizing snacks for himself and his 2 brothers.  He made bags of trail mix.

When Max was done each of them had 15 raisins, 7 M&M’s, 5 pretzels and 14 Cheerios and 10 almonds in his bag of trail mix.

How many raisins did Max start with?

How many M&M’s did Max start with?

How many pretzels did Max start with?

How many Cheerios did Max start with?

How many almonds did Max start with?

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.

UA’s for today…

Art Click on new lessons and scroll down to find what Mrs. Nardone has for you to explore in Art today.  If you explore the art gallery you’ll see new artwork this week from Brady and Anna.  Technology.  You’ll find the lessons Mrs. Herlihy left here at this link open the lesson that is next for you.

I hope you had a marvelous Monday.  I’ll be looking for your work.  I am so glad to meet with you.  Comment and post often – it keeps us connected!

🌈☀️🍃💕Mrs. Eaves

A Summary of Week Three

Here is a collection of photographs and work samples you sent this week.  Thank you for sharing.  They make me so happy.  I love reading your posts each day!

We explored Gratitude and are trying to develop a daily practice of taking note of what we are grateful for.  We’ve got our gratitude rocks and jars.

 

 

We are keeping up with daily independent reading and recording our thoughts in a comment each day.

 

 

We are taking time to learn more about leads, topic sentences and paragraphing in a developing weather essay.  I’m excited about what I am reading in your drafts.  They will be ready for publishing in a week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve explored fact families with  chocolates, cupcakes and cake.  We’ve also practiced writing problems to match particular equations.

Anna journal cover   You’ve worked on your travel journals and covers.  This week we’ll begin creating the souvenirs (some of you already have, and that’s great)

And the deadline for the Winterhouse Challenge is coming on Wednesday.  You can already see some of those posts that include a favorite character, a list of personality character traits supported by evidence from the books – what did the character do, say or think.

On top of that you are creating art, playing games and your recorder, going for walks and bike rides and shooting baskets and practicing Spanish when you can.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are outstanding! 💕 Even from far away, you are digging deep and doing all that you can to learn and grow.  I am GRATEFUL for YOU!

Ms. Griffenhagen found Jaggy on her deck trying to cheer her up on our last rainy Friday.  She said it worked and sent the video on to us.  Even though it’s sunny today, I thought you’d enjoy seeing Jaggy dancing in the rain.

Keep on being awesome – I miss you!

🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜Mrs. Eaves

 

Our Day – Thursday April 2 – Day 12

🥳🎂🎉Happy Birthday Holden!🎉🎂🥳

Good Morning! 

Morning Work – I hope you will start off 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.

Stop to put your gratefulness rock in your pocket. Think of something new that you are grateful for as your day begins and add it to your Gratitude Jar.  Then check out each others blogs and leave a comment or two.

Keep up with independent reading suggestions by checking out all the comments of you’ve all been leaving and keep reading each and every day!

Morning Meeting –  It’s another wonderful day.  Listen to this reading of The Awesome Book of Thanks by Dallas Clayton.  I like the message and the colorful illustrations.  I am grateful for color.  Let’s see what happens when we each try to make a monochromatic picture.  “What,” you ask, “is that?”  It is a picture that is created by using different shades of only one color.  If you decide to give it a try, make sure to post it on you blog. Here are a few examples. Be inspired.  Have fun!

 

Take a break, get a snack and move around.  If you’d like, here are two Go Noodle videos.  The first one here is one to move with and the second one here is one to help us become more mindful.

Reading, Writing, Science and Art

Shared Reading – To start today listen to the poem called The Storm by Laurie Harley.

Next listen to What Will the Weather Be Like Today by Paul Rogers.

I hope this book is reminding you of the difference between weather and climate.  Think back to the climate maps you made a week ago in the Mystery Science activity.  Can you describe the difference between Climate and Weather?  Create a blog post to explain the  difference between the two.

 

Take a break, go outside, run around, sing, 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.

Writer’s Workshop  –  Beginning on March 31, we will spend six days to work little by little to craft a piece of writing sharing the weather information you have been collecting. We are going to learn about creating paragraphs. Yesterday you wrote your lead.  If you had a chance to take advantage of that opportunity,  you’ll find some feedback waiting for you in your draft.  9 of you did that writing assignment.  If you didn’t have the chance, go back to yesterday’s post to find the information you need to complete it now.

Today you will be planning the order of how you will present your storm information and you will be writing a paragraph or two about that one type of weather.

Here’s my plan.  You can use it, but it would be more fun if you followed your own line of thinking. Some of you chose other kinds of extreme weather altogether so this plan won’t work – that’s FABULOUS!  You come up with your order.

I decided to start with the subtopic of  Thunderstorms.  Then I chose to move to Tornadoes because they start in Thunderstorms.  I going to tell about Hurricanes next and connect to the fact that both, Tornadoes and Hurricanes have high winds and 5 different classifications.  And finally I am going to explain what I know about Blizzards because they are also windy.

The first sentence in a paragraph is called a TOPIC SENTENCE.  It lets the reader know what they will learn about in that paragraph.  It’s like a mini lead or introduction to the subtopic.  Every sentence that comes after the topic sentence, should add a different detail.  Altogether the paragraph teaches about that subtopic completely.  

I’ll get some of my sentence details from my concept map.  The details are the facts I collected in the small circles.   I’ll also have to remember to write about some I didn’t collect on my map – I may even have to look some up by going back to the resources.

Here’s an example of a paragraph with a topic sentence and six supporting details from Writer’s Toolbox by Nancy Loewen.

When you’re ready to write, open your weather post, make revisions to your lead, delete the feedback  and add the new paragraph(s) about that one subtopic.  Remember to use your elaboration strategies.  When you have finished writing about that topic.  Stop and save your draft.  Don’t submit it.  You’ll be adding more the next time you write.

(If you have bits and pieces of your travel journal to finish up, do them when you have time.)

Math Workshop~

Math Mini Lesson Warm-Up –  It seems like almost everybody is feeling certain of how multiplication and division meet together to create fact families.  You did great with the chocolates and cupcake problems. (Here’s a tip : using the option key and the / together will allow you to type the division symbol÷.). Today in honor of Holden’s birthday let’s do some birthday cake math for the first part of our math warm up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are four pictures of cakes cut into equal pieces.  Choose a just right challenge for you, and without telling us which picture you selected, please create a blog post that shares the four equations in the fact family represented by the cake you chose and one story problem that illustrates an equations from that fact family.

Complete these Multiplication and Division Review1 and Multiplication and Division review2 worksheets to help you have even more practice with fact families in the second part of the math workshop.

Problem Solving ~ Next, here are today’s problems to choose from.  These were written to model ways to write division and multiplication story problems.  Solve as many as you can.   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!

Edward counted the crayons.  He found out the class had 80 crayons.  He places the crayons in boxes.  Every box contains 8 crayons.  How many boxes will Edward need?

Brady organized the paper.  There were three piles of clean white paper.  He decided to place the paper in envelopes that could hold 10 pieces of paper her.  How many envelopes does Brady need if there are 120 pieces of clean white paper in each pile? 

May collected the watercolor paintings that class had created.  She wanted to hang and equal number of paintings on each of the four walls of the classroom.  How many paintings did May hang on each of the four walls.

Estella combined 526 colored pencils, 385 markers and 1,217 crayons from the classroom supplies and put them in a box to send to a shelter so kids their could create pictures.  How many art supplies did Estella put in the box?

The box weighed 3 and ½ pounds.  When Javey took it to the post office to mail he found out it would cost $6.95 per pound to mail the package.  How much money did it cost to mail the package of art supplies?

Landin painted Gratitude Rocks for everyone in 3E – including Mrs. Douglas and Mrs. Eaves.  On each rock she painted 35 green dots, 46 light blue dots, 27 yellow dots and 18 dark blue dots.  How many dots did she paint on each rock?  How many dots did she paint on the entire set of Gratitude Rocks?

Math Games and Activities ~ If you’ve worked through the first three parts of math workshop, it’s definitely time for a game here at ABCya. If you want to try Prodigy talk to your parents.   Does anyone else have 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.

UA’s for today…

Spanish ~ I know Señora Murphy has posted some new lessons for you to explore.

And Music ~ Here’s the link to Mrs Oliver’s Online classroom.  Remember, she’d love to hear from you and is hoping you’ll email her pictures of videos of the songs you are learning to play.  Have fun making music!

New School Week Expectations
Dr. Lupini and Ms. Snyder set some new school expectations.  The plan is that students will have new assignments Monday through Thursday.  Friday is a day for you to catch up on things you haven’t had the opportunity to do or complete. It’s a day work on larger projects – like our Winterhouse Challenge.  The hope is that this will make the weeks feel a bit more relaxed.
Teachers have been asked to spend Friday getting ready for up-coming lessons with time to work together in Zoom to plan grade level activities.  Don’t worry, I’ll still be checking the blog and will be near by to answer your questions as they arise.  I’ll be there for you! ☀️💕🙌🏼
So that means you’ve gotten all the new assignments you’ll have for this week.  The travel journals you’ve been able to share with me are WONDERFUL. (It’s fine to still be working on them.) Next week, we’ll start creating the souvenirs.
This week you have done amazing writing, math and reading.  You shared joy with each of us and the world as you expressed your gratitude for all of our many blessing.  You played music and created pictures.  You went for bike rides and hikes.  You are remarkable!
Thank you for being you!

Here’s something interesting.  Ms. Griffenhagen just sent this video.  How can this be?  I thought we had that figured out…

Our Day – Wednesday, April 1 – Day 11

🥳🎂🎉Happy Birthday Estella!🎉🎂🥳

Good Morning! Happy April Fools Day!

Morning Work – I hope you will start off your learning day by completing your weather graph – I think we should be able to use the same one we began on March 18, 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.

Stop to put your gratefulness rock in your pocket.  Think of something new that you are grateful for as your day begins and add it to your Gratitude Jar.  Then check out each others blogs and leave a comment or two.

Keep up with independent reading suggestions by checking out all the comments of you’ve all been leaving and keep reading each and every day!

Morning Meeting It’s Wonderful Wednesday.  To begin our day, here’s a video of Ms. Griffenhagen reading, I Am Enough.  It fits really well with our conversation about gratitude and feeling confident in who you are. Next watch this video about the importance of practicing gratitude.  What’s on your Top 10 List?  We’d love to see your list in a blog post. 

 

Take a break, get a snack and move around.  If you’d like, here are two  Go Noodle videos here, No Crust dance and here, You are Courage mindful moment.

Shared Reading

Let’s start with a new song to the tune of “Oh My Darling”

What’s the weather?

What’s the weather?                                      Listen to Wild Weather

What’s the weather, everyone?                    The author created characters

Is it windy?                                                      to share weather facts.

Is it cloudy?                                                     I think it is different

Is there rain?                                                  and unique.

Or is there sun?

Take a break, go outside, run around, sing,  play a game, make some art.

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

Writer’s Workshop  –  Over the next six days we will work little by little to craft a piece of writing sharing the weather information you have been collecting.  Today we will write the lead.  We learned  about 4 types of  leads and conclusions. They are:

Snapshot leads that paint a picture,

Dialogue leads where conversation opens the writing,

Question leads the pique your interest through questions and

Onomatopoeia leads that open with sounds.

Before you begin read through the leads on the chart.  These are from four nonfiction books about frogs.

Look at the lead from Super Storm by Seymour Simon that you listen to on Monday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look at the lead to Wild Weather  by Thomas Kingsley Troupe that you listened to today.

 

 

 

 

 

Using that information, decide how you will begin your writing about wild weather.  What kind of lead will you use to hook your readers?

When you have decided, open a blog post and write your lead.  It is likely to introduce your topic in several detailed sentences that use the elaboration strategies all authors use.  When you have finished writing your lead.  Stop and save your draft.  Don’t submit it.  You’ll be adding more tomorrow

(If you have bits and pieces of your travel journal to finish up, do them when you have time.)

Math – Great job yesterday with the Chocolate math.  (Here’s a tip : using the option key and the / together will allow you to type the division symbol÷.). Today in honor of Estella’s birthday let’s do some cupcake math for the first part of our math warm up.

Here are three pictures of boxed cupcakes.  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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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!

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.

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:  

2×3=6

3×2=6

6÷3=2

6÷2=3

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.

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.

Winterhouse Challenge

Challenge Summary:

  1. Choose a main character to make an image of (see details below.)
  2. List 3 inner personality traits (explained on “Our Day -Monday, March 23)  your character has and explain how the character demonstrated each trait in the story.
  3. Take a photograph of your image, post it with the traits on your blog
  4. This is due on or before April 8.

When we began reading Winterhouse on January 21 and in about forty days we finished our most exciting read-aloud to date.  In the first week we began sorting characters.  We were wondering who the main characters were and who the secondary characters were and who were the extras.  Here’s our list from that first week.  I would add a character and I would move a few around.  How about you?  Gracella hadn’t appeared in the story when we made our list and we listed Freddy as a secondary character then.  I think the main characters are: Elizabeth, Norbridge, Freddy, Leona and Gracella.

 

Your challenge, should you accept it, (and I hope you will!!!❤️❤️❤️ – 🥺🥺🥺 Did you notice I am pleading?😀) is to choose a main character from Winterhouse, create an image of that character and list 3 inner personality traits your character has.  Support those claims with evidence.  You do that by explaining how your favorite character showed those traits through their thoughts, words and actions in the book.

You can create your character image in any 3-D or 2-D way you’re inspired to use – play-doh, water colors, model magic, sewing, markers, foil, pipe cleaners, crayons, a puppet, collage, any combination…

Once you’ve created your character, take a photograph, add it to a blog post (or send it to me in an email and I will) with your favorite character’s name.

Along with that, please list 3 inner personality traits your character had and how they showed each trait through their thoughts, words and/or actions in the story.

This should be completed on or before Wednesday, April 8th.

Happy Creating!

Our Day – Monday – March 30 – Day 9

Good Morning!  I hope you had a relaxing weekend!

We’ll hold a Zoom Meeting at 10:00.  Bring your gratitude rock and be ready to share one thing you’re grateful for. Hopefully you’ll each be able to share and we’ll be ready to listen to each other.

Morning Work – Start off 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.

Stop to look at  your gratitude  rock or put in your pocket   Think of a couple 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 the comments you’ve all been leaving.

 

Morning Meeting – Let’s be grateful – when we give our attention to the people, places and things we are thankful for, it can help us find greater happiness.

This book is a beautiful reminder of all the incredible opportunities there are for us in the world.

This first link is a reading of All the World.  This second link focuses closely on the illustrations.  I think it is beautifully arranged. It helped me notice the details I hadn’t seen before.  Enjoy if you feel you have the time!

I found this  Gratitude Scavenger Hunt on simpleacresblog.  Go on a hunt sometime today and create a post sharing what you discovered and collected.

 

Take a break, get a snack and move around.  If you’d like, here are two  Go Noodle videos here , Repeat the Beat and here Weather the Storm mindfully.

My guess is this is about the time we’ll be meeting on Zoom.

 

Reading, Writing, Science and Art

Shared Reading – Today we’ll be working to summarize what we’ve learned about predicting the weather, reading clouds and staying safe in extreme weather.

Let’s start with a new poem –

Four Seasons ~ anonymous.                            

Spring is showery, flowery, bowery.

Summer: hoppy, croppy, poppy.

Autumn:  wheezy, sneezy, freezy.

Winter: slippy, drippy, nippy.

To review all the different types of extreme weather listen to Super Storms by Seymour Simon. Take some time today to begin creating a concept map about storms. Here is a link:  concept map. Try to make it as detailed as you can. That will mean adding more circles. You may want to draw your own on a larger piece of paper.  Here is one I started as an example.  It may give you an idea of how to begin.

Go back to the pieces you wrote about each different kind of weather to remind yourself of the facts.  You can read other kids’ post or reread the resources shared throughout last week if you need to remember more facts.  I think this project will take you a while to do. Do some today and some tomorrow.  We’ll be using it to write from on Wednesday. When you’re finished take a picture of it post it on your blog or send it in an email.

 

Take a break, go outside and run around, sing, build, 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. So far 5 students have completed their travel journals. How are you doing on your writing, covers, table of contents and glossaries?

Math – On Friday five classmates wrote math problems for you to solve: Vera, May, Anna, Katherine and Landon.  To start our math warm up, take time to open at least two of these blog posts and solve their problems.  Let them know what you’ve done in a comment.  I was hoping we’d be able to draw sticks this time.  We’ll give it a try another time when more classmates have a chance to complete the assignment.  😃✏️🔢

For the second part of the Math Warm-Up try this worksheet.Fact Families and Missing Numbers 3.30

At the bottom of the worksheet you’ll see three equations with parenthesis in them.  Parenthesis = ( ).  Let’s talk about what they mean in a math problem.  When you see (3+2) x 5 =□  Do you know what to do?  The rule in mathematics is to alway perform the operation inside the parenthesis first and then perform the second operation.  So this equation becomes 5×5 =□ and we can solve that:  5×5=25.  Here’s another example: 135 – (5×9) = □.  That becomes 135 -45 = □.  135-45 =90.  Now give those last three problems a try.

It does seem as though more of you are feeling comfortable with division.  Vera, Katherine and May showed us their division process with photographs and videos.  Lots of you have solved the division equations on the worksheets last week. We’ll keep practicing until division feels more comfortable to everyone.

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!

Elena has 21,850 crayons.  Sophie has 17,039 crayons.

How many more crayons does Elena have than Sophie?

Landon has 2,258 more crayons than Sophie has.  How many crayons does Landon have?

If Elena, Sophie and Landon put their crayons altogether, how many crayons will that be?

Holden has 10,000 balloons.  2,626 of the balloon are blue.  4,486 are red.  2,029 are yellow.  The rest of the balloons are different shades of green.

How many of the balloons are green?

275 of the green balloons are star shaped.  The rest are round.  How many round, green balloons does Holden have?

Vera baked 128 muffins.

Edward baked 11 times as many.  How many muffins did Edward bake?

Vera baked some corn muffins and some chocolate-chip muffins. If 59 if the muffins were corn muffins, how many of them were chocolate chip?

Edward baked some blueberry muffins and some apple muffins.  If 826 of the muffins were blueberry, how many of them were apple?

Brady had 2,080 Legos.

He built a castle.  He used 762 of the Legos in the castle. 

How many Legos did Brady have have left for another project?

May had 2,056 markers.  She threw away 268 because they had dried up.

How many markers did she have left?

Round your answer to the nearest 10. 

Round your answer to the nearest 100.

Estella was building a fort.  The floor of was a rectangle that measured 6 feet by 4 feet.  She wanted to get tiles to put on the floor.  The tiles were 1 foot by 1 foot. 

How many tiles would Estella need to cover the floor of her fort?

If each tile cost $1.25, how much money did Estella spend to buy the tiles?

If you’ve worked through that, it’s definitely time for a game here at ABCya.  Brady and I especially like Math Bingo. Landon recommended Basketball Math Facts.  Edward recommends Number Ninja.  Holden recommended a different game site, Prodigy.  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.

UA’s for today…

Art Click on new lessons and scroll down to find what Mrs. Nardone has for you to explore in Art today.  If you explore the art gallery you’ll see new artwork this week from Brady, Anna, Piper, Landon and May.  Technology.  You’ll find the lessons Mrs. Herlihy left here at this link open the lesson that is next for you.

I hope you had a fabulous Monday.  I’ll be looking for your work.  I am so glad to meet with you.  Comment and post often – it keeps us connected!

🙌🏼🎉💕Mrs. Eaves

Our Day – Friday, March 27 – Day 8

Good Morning! 

Morning Work – I hope you will start off 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.

Then check out each others blogs and leave a comment or two. Justin wrote about his epic trip to the beach – it is full of photographs from every part.  There are lots of posts about Blizzards and listening carefully with gratitude.  There are some great illustrations – Anna actually cut some snowflakes to post with her writing.  Vera shared all about her animals.  We’ll have to see if Edward and Justin are saved…  Will Piper ever write again…  Thanks for sharing and posting and staying connected.

Check out all the comments of you’ve all been leaving about reading too.  You’re making great predictions and inferences and sharing what you think about these great books.

Morning Meeting – What I was grateful for after I sat and listened surprised me.  I didn’t expect to be most grateful for the sound of motors, but I was.  Were you surprised by what you discovered when you thought about being grateful for sounds?

Here’s another gratitude exercise I found this on positive psychology.com. I hope it will remind us to keep track of more of our forgotten blessings.  The exercise is called:  A Gratitude Rock.  But before I share the instructions, let’s listen to this story, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble.  It’s a long one, but a great one, so relax and enjoy.

Now, here are the instructions for the activity:  find a rock!  Pick one you like.  (Justin I had planned this before I read your post from yesterday – you’ve got some great rocks to choose from. 🌊) It can be smooth or bumpy, sparkly or collected from a place special.  Carry your rock with you in your pocket or leave in a place where you will see it off and on throughout the day. Whenever you see it or touch it, stop and think about at least one thing you are grateful for. It can be something as small as the sun shining on you or it can be something as big as having a family who cares for you.

When you take the stone out of your pocket at night or see it for the last time of the day, take a moment to remember the things that you were grateful for throughout the day.

When you put it in your pocket in the morning or see it again for the first time in the day, repeat this process to remember what you are grateful for.  Gratitude builds. It makes us happier and healthier the more we remember to take note of what’s wonderful – even in not so fun situations.

When you’ve selected your Gratitude Rock, take a picture of it and post it on your blog along with a few things you are feeling grateful for in your life.

Take a break, get a snack and move around.  If you’d like, here are two  Go Noodle videos here and here. One is a fun guided dance (Katherine, I think you’ll really like it.)and the other helps us grow gratitude.

Reading, Writing, Science and Art

Shared Reading – Do you know the difference between a snowstorm and a blizzard? Let’s find out about one last type of extreme weather today – thunderstorms.  We’ll start with a new song (sung to “Pop Goes the Weasel). It’s by Meish Goldish.

Thunder and Lightning

When a storm begins in the clouds,

It sometimes may look frightening.          To learn about thunderstorms

You see a quick electrical spark –               click here

Flash! goes the lightning!

Long and thin and stray and fast,

Its gloms is oh so brightening.

Watch for the electrical spark – 

Flash! goes the lightning!

When a storm begins in the clouds,

It truly is a wonder.                                  You can learn some more from

You hear a rumble loud in the sky –        this video

Clap! goes the thunder!                             Thunderstorms 101

Lightning bolts are heating the air,      

Over clouds and under.                           

When the air expands enough –              

Clap! goes the thunder!

 

Now that you’ve learned about thunderstorms, take time to write a poem, an informational piece or a narrative story that features one.   Consider using all your elaboration strategies as you write.

Add an original piece of artwork or illustrate it with images online to create a blog post sharing what you think is most interesting about this kind of extreme weather.

Take a break, go outside, run around, sing Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes regular, fast, faster and then in slow-motion,  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.

Inquiry Workshop – Social Studies  –  Our goal is to have the travel journal (magazine) pages completed by the end of March and ready to share on April 6th. Our writing goals for this project were to show some of what you know about non-fiction text features and that is why you’ve been asked to design a special cover, have bold or highlighted words, build a glossary with this words, create a labels map and a table on contents.  We’re also working on paragraphing. You know how to do all those things.  Just do one thing at a time. Do what you can and don’t worry about what you can’t.

Math – I didn’t see many examples of how you solved the division problems on Thursday, so I’m not sure if we should move on.  May shared a great video showing how she used division with a new supply of play-doh her family was given. Watch what she did:May 3.26 dividing

I thought I’d double check understanding by trying another activity.  Here are two different equations:  28÷7= ___ and 4×9= ___  Below them you will find four different story problems.  Can you tell which ones are match the equations?  Only 2 match. Can you find them and explain why.  Sometimes finding the words to explain is the tricky part.  You know the answer, but you’re not sure how.  Make sure you have someone around, so you can actually practice explaining.

  • a) There were 28 pieces of candy in the dish. A boy ate 7 of the pieces of candy.  How many pieces of candy were  left?
  • b) There were 4 logs in the pond.  Nine turtles crawled on each long to sun themselves.  How many turtles were sunning themselves altogether?
  • c) There were 28 donuts.  I shared them evenly with 7 students. How many donuts did each student get as their fair share?
  • d) There were 4 bluebirds and 9 robins in my yard.  How many birds did I see altogether in my yard?

After you’ve made your choices and practiced explaining, please share your reasoning in part 1 of a blog post.  Next, please select two equations from below and write a math story problem for each of your two choices.  Remember to use our story problem guidelines, except make these one step problems.  Post your math story problems as the second part on your math blog post so we can use them in our math class on Monday.

9×2= ___.         16÷2= ___.         24÷4= ___.         4×8= ___.         42÷6= ___.         6×5= ___.         6×8= ___.       40÷5= ___.       9×6= ___.         18÷3= ___.         36÷4= ___.         10×4= ___.

If you’ve worked through that, it’s definitely time for a game here at ABCya.  Brady and I especially like Math Bingo. Landon recommended Basketball Math Facts.   Edward recommends Number Ninja. Did anyone else find another game you like.  Leave the name in a comment so we can all have fun.

Here’s a message from Mr. Guidi to you and your parents:

After talking to the Physical Education team, we have decided that the fitness logs that are posted on Google Classroom are optional. If you would like to continue filling out the fitness logs, then you are more than welcome to do so. Google Classroom can be used for students to get in contact with us, but you can also email us with any questions you might have. 
 
We have created a website that you can use as a resource. I have posted the link here: https://sites.google.com/sau21.org/nhspe/home?authuser=0. We will continue to update the page with videos and links that we hope will be useful to you and your children at home. 
So enjoy something active, joyous and fun for Phys. Ed. Here’s the link to Mrs Oliver’s Online classroom.  Remember, she’d love to hear from you and is hoping you’ll email her pictures of videos of the songs you are learning to play.  Have fun making music!
You’ve finished the week. 👊🏻🙌🏼🎉 Well done!  I am so proud of you – you are doing it.  I am working on Zoom – we’ll be in touch soon.  I miss you more than you can imagine.
Have a wonderful weekend!
❤️🧡💛💚💙💜☀️ Mrs. Eaves

Our Day – Thursday, March 26 – Day 7

Good Morning! 

Morning Work – I hope you will start off 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.

Then check out each others blogs and leave a comment or two.  Piper and Edward are holding out – they won’t finish their stories until they get a few more comments.  Lots of you share how thankful you are for your family and many of you shared your engineering skills.  There is a lot of effort and learning happening here. You should be proud of yourselves.  Thanks for sharing and posting and staying connected.

Check out all the comments of your classmates have left about reading too.  You’ll notice who is thinking about character traits, or favorite events.  You just might find a new book for you.

Morning Meeting  – Now that I’ve started thinking of what I grateful for, I’ve begun to think about things like being grateful to see and hear, to taste and feel.  And that made me think of this book.  Here’s a link to The Listening Walk. Enjoy!  I like how this book is full of onomatopoeia so let’s see how we can combine sounds with gratitude and writing.  First, make time to “go on a listening walk.”  You decide – do you want to sit and listen right where you are, or do you want to go for a walk outside.  Whatever you choose, make a list of as many sounds as you hear.  Next sort them into natural and manmade sounds.  And finally, choose the sounds you are most grateful for and share them in a poem or story on your blog.  Try using onomatopoeia in this post.  If you need an example to help you get started, there’s one on my blog.

Take a break, get a snack and move around.  If you’d like,  here are Go Noodle videos here and here. One is for moving and one is for thinking about kindness.

Reading, Writing, Science and Art

Shared Reading – Do you know the difference between a snow storm and a blizzard? Let’s find out about this type of extreme weather today.  First here’s a new poem by A.A.Milne:

The More It Snows                                            Here’s  John Rocco’s Blizzard

The more it.                                                             It’s his personal narrative from 1978.

SNOWS – tiddely -pom,

The more it.                                                            Here’s an article by Lauren Tarshis.

GOES – tiddely – pom                                          She is the author of the I Survived series

The more it.                                                           It’s about The Children’s Blizzard of 1888

GOES – tiddely – pom                                           And finally, here’s a video,

On                                                                            The Biggest Snowstorms!

Snowing.

And nobody

Growing.                                                             some snowflakes to illustrate your writing.  

Post them together on your blog.

Take a break, go outside, run around play a game, make some art.  Maybe there’s something on this chart that you haven’t thought of that could be fun.

Reading – Find 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.  Mrs. Oliver has a couple new songs for us today.

Inquiry Workshop – Social Studies  –  Our goal is to have the travel journal (magazine) pages completed by the end of March and ready to share on April 6th. You can find your assignment and notes in the blue folder so you are sure of what parts need to be worked on.  You may want to begin writing what you have researched now and see how many of your pages you can complete before you finish researching.  It’s okay to work in whatever writing program you have on your computer rather than using Print Shop.  Google Classroom is an option for making your pages too.  You can choose the font type, size and color in Pages or Word and you add photographs the same way.  Do what you can and don’t worry about what you can’t.

Math –   Today our goal is to make sure that we can solve division story problems with dividends to 100.  And we are going to try practicing solving division problems by finding an unknown factor.

(A dividend the the number that is being divided in the problem.  Factors are the two numbers being multiplied together.)

Here’s the first story problem:  If I had 24 cookies and I wanted to divide them evenly among 6 children. How many cookies would each child get?

Step one: count out 24 pennies (It what I have to use as counters like we use the tiles in class.)

Step two:  draw six kids

Step three:  Start sharing pennies until they are gone to find out what a fair share is.

Step four:  Write the equation.  My answer is four.

What if someone said, “I could solve that because I know that 4 x 6 =24.  So it just makes sense that 24 ÷6 =4.  They’re in the same fact family.”  Would they be right or not?

Edward had 35 baseball cards that he wanted to share evenly with seven friends.  How many baseball cards would he give each of his friends.  Edward said, “I know that.  I know that 7 x 5 =35 so 35 ÷7 =5.  My answer is that each friend would get 5 cards.”

I wasn’t certain so here are the steps I took to solve the problem.

Step one:  Count out 35 pennies

Step two: Draw seven kids

Step three: Share the pennies until they are gone to find out what the fair share is.

Step four:  Write the equation.  My answer is 5.  Each of the kids would get 5 baseball cards.  I got the same answer as Edward did, but I got it in a different way.  Can we both be right?

For today’s warm up choose at least two of the following problems to solve.  Record all the steps of your math thinking either by recording and dating it in your journal or by photographing your steps and creating your own math teaching blog post.

  1. Seven candies fit into a treat bag.  Jerry has 56 pieces of candy.  How many treat bags can Jerry make?
  2. Our families are coming to school for a game night.  Each table holds 8 people.  There are 48 people coming to the game night.  How many tables will we need?
  3. Six markers fit in a box.  Olive has 36 markers.  How many boxes can Olive fill.
  4. Mr. Guidi has 27 basketballs.  He wants to put the same number in each storage bag.  He has 3 storage bags.  How many basketballs will Mr. Guidi put in each bag?
  5. There were 18 crackers. 3 kids wanted to share them fairly.  How many crackers were in each fair share?

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!

At baseball practice the players on Landon threw the ball 162 times.  He batted the ball 63 times and fielded the ball 79 times.  How much contact with a ball did Landon have at that practice?

If that was repeated three times each week for the entire month of May (there are four weeks in a month) how much contact with a ball would Landon have altogether in that month?

Mrs. Nardone bought 15 packets of crayons.  Eight of the packets had 8 crayons and the other seven had 10 crayons.  How many crayons did Mrs. Nardone buy in all?

Half of the crayons were triangular and half were round.

How many of each type of crayon were there?

Holden was doing a jigsaw puzzle that had 1,525 pieces in it.

He divided the puzzle pieces into five equal groups.  How many pieces were in each group?

By Monday he had completed 3/5 (3 of the 5 groups)of the puzzle.

How many pieces did he still have left to put together then?

The birds are back and nesting.

The ornithologists are keeping track.  They have found:

15 bluebird nests, with 4 eggs in each nest and

21 robin nests, with 6 eggs in each nest.

How many eggs were in the 36 nests altogether?

Elena collected 174 shells at the beach.  She added them to her collection and now she has 360 shells.

How many shells did Elena start with?

Sophie had 1,209 books.  Katherine had 1,136 books.  If they put them together on a shelf, how many books would they have then?

Paul borrowed 140 and Holden borrowed 128 of the books the girls put on the shelf.  How many books were left on the shelf then?

If you’ve worked through that, it’s definitely time for a game here at ABCDya.  Brady and I especially like Math Bingo. Landon recommended Basketball Math Facts.   Did anyone else find another game you like.  Leave the name in a comment so we can all have fun.  You could also make your own Tiguous board.  All you need is a partner, 10 counters each and two dice.  You can teach for family the game.

 

I know you began Spanish yesterday.  Here is some information I forgot to share:

Hola familias – Hello families.

I hope you are all doing well and coping with the adjustments we are having to make so quickly. I miss your kids and teaching Spanish face to face. Having said that, I will do my best to teach online.
Here are a few requests for your children:
  1. Keep a journal of what you do for Spanish each week.
  2. Try practicing speaking aloud with another person, even if they do not speak Spanish.
  3. There are lots of Apps for children to learn Spanish to use on the computer and/or a tablet. I will do my best to compile a list of some suggestions.
  4. Practice 2x per week, 15 minutes each time.
Take care and stay healthy. Please email me with questions.
Sinceramente, Sra. Murphy

Here’s the link to Mrs Oliver’s Online classroom.  Remember, she’d love to hear from you and is hoping you’ll email her pictures of videos of the songs you are learning to play.  Have fun making music!

Well done!  You’ve completed another day.  I miss you more than you can ever know.  Thank you for all you effort.  You are wonderful. 🙌🏼
