Go to Google Classroom and add a photo of something you’ve made at home! It can be something crafty or something you’ve baked or cooked. It can be a video you upload of a song you can play or a game you’ve created! It can be a work in progress or something that you’ve finished already! Have fun and post! I’ll insert the link to the slide show tomorrow!
Beginning today, I will be posting Virtual Spirit Week activities for everyone!
Monday is Pictures with Your Pets!
Upload your photo and a description of who you pet is in a Google Slide Show! Look in Google Classroom for the “assignment”.
Click on the link above and then click present to view the Pet Parade!
Please make sure your child is working on the assignments listed in the Remote Classroom Page above. It is important that he/she is keeping up with the work we are doing. If you have any questions, please let me know!
This week, I’ll be planning on doing a virtual meeting via google hangouts. We received directions last week from the district that this is the platform that is supported by our district. Look for directions on Monday afternoon for how to join the conversation!
Ok third graders! Here’s take two! Post your favorite knock knock joke! I’ll start!
Knock knock. Who’s there? Amish. Amish who? Amish you!
Today, we’re looking at fun vocabulary from these two chapters. Add a comment for your favorite word that you noticed as I read the story. (Make sure you listen to the story by clicking on the link that’s up above. There is a Wishtree Slides on Google Classroom so that you can type your responses and the blog doesn’t get too cluttered. You are not required to write a response, it’s just for fun to see what other kids in our class are thinking!
I’m going to start recording videos of our current novel, The Wish Tree. You will find the links in the page listed above called “The Wish Tree”. I’ll have them as chapters. I couldn’t remember how to pronounce Samar as a girl’s name, so I asked students to tell me if it’s Samar #1 (SAM-er) or #2 (Suh-MAR). Please let me know in the comments below!
Greetings! I hope that everyone is doing well and has been able to access the new set of assignments under the “Remote Learning Tab”. If you are having trouble, please use the graphic below to help you!
I will be recording a video this morning of “Wishtree” and posting it on the blog. If you haven’t taken the survey yet for the app you prefer for online community circle with your student and the class, please do so by clicking here Survey.

Fun and Fit Activities for Home
I found a great resource for fun activities to try at home to help beat boredom. It’s totally reasonable and understandable that our children are getting emotionally and physically tired from the quarantine. Keep in mind, they’re used to spending the majority of their day interacting with peers and following a structured schedule. Here are some ways to help your children get active and creative.
