March 31 Update:
I added a Zoom Link on the left with meetings and protocol for future meetings. Friday, April 3rd we'll have another Zoom Class Meeting with a SPECIAL GUEST!! Tune in to see who it is. Invitations will be sent to families by Thursday evening.

March 30 Update:
I so enjoyed our Zoom meeting this morning! You all are just as awesome as ever. I would like to have another meeting on Friday at 10:00 and will be sending out emails with the information and format for our next meeting. Now that I have hosted my first meeting, I think we can make the next one even better.

PLEASE look at the Continued Learning Resources on the left side of this page for weekly plans for all third grade students. Remember this is a suggestion and is not mandatory. Our goal is to help your children finish up grade level objectives and prepare them for next year.

** Currently ixl.com gives all students access to core subjects, not just math, on ixl.com.

Please check the useful links to see Pacing Guides and Curriculum Documents.

While away from school, students are encouraged to read and practice practical math each day. This is a great time to teach life skills while incorporating reading and math. Ms. Bankston created a FlipGrid account for both of our classes and several students have already shared books. Please consider joining us.

Cooking: Practice sequencing, following directions, measurement and experimentation.

Laundry: Practice sorting clothing, measure detergent and discuss the chemical solution created by adding water. Help with folding clean laundry. Pile all socks together and estimate how many you think there are. Then count them to check your estimate. Did you assume there would be an even number? If so, why? Before pairing them up, divide your count by 2 to calculate how many pairs of socks you have. Then match them up to check your work.

Cleaning: Practice measurement by measuring the length of items before dusting or vacuuming. Calculate what the perimeter of a table or room is by measuring the sides. Should you use feet, meters, or centimeters to measure each item (or yards, inches)?

Washing or Drying Dishes: What is the product of the number of silverware and the number of plates? Show three different strategies.

See the Math Link to the left for specific links to ixl.com. I have also updated Prodigy to include rounding, comparing and ordering for the next two weeks. Any practice on ixl.com or Prodigy will help keep students consistent in their math learning. 

Students may write to me via email or messages through Class Dojo if they'd like. I would enjoy communicating with them.
