Thomas – Math/Writing – Thursday Newsletter and Assignments – 4/16

Teacher: Corinne Thomas (cthomas@hps.holyoke.ma.us)

Assignment:

Hi 3rd graders!

Thanks to all who have made it to our Zooms, completed online work, and sent me pictures of their learning! Even if you can’t attend the Zooms, you can definitely do the online and offline learning below!

April Break 

Students are on April Break Monday 4/20- Wednesday 4/22. Over the course of these days they can continue to work on enriching learning activities, or they can take a break from school, either is 100% a good choice. I will still be generally available to students 10am-5pm on those days. However, Monday-Wednesday Zoom classes are canceled for 3rd graders! We will resume Zooms on Thursday and Friday.

Math

Today we practiced subtracting on the open number line! You can practice this skill by playing our math game, Find that Addend!

You can watch a video of me reviewing some addition and subtraction strategies!

Teach Find that Addend to 2 people at home, send me a picture, and earn a dojo point!

Writing

Today we shared our Daily Diaries! We will continue to keep these daily diaries each day and have the option of sharing them on Zoom. Remember that if you send me a picture of your Daily Diary, you will earn 2 dojo points per entry!!! Check out an example here!

We learned about sequencing our directions and discussed what good directions look like. Specifically, we learned that good directions always go in order!
