Oh The Wonderful Places You'll Go!

We have actively been reading Dr. Seuss books each day to celebrate Read Across America week. Some students are rediscovering old favorites and discovering new ones. I love Dr. Seuss books, whether they teach a lesson or are just fun rhyming reads.

Morning Journal: Mr. Sid's assignment on being an upstander.

Morning Math: Subtraction with Regrouping, Metric Length Measurement, Word Form to Standard Form, Fractions

Math: We reviewed over customary capacity with "Super G". We took a quiz on capacity and drawing of our "Super G" tool. I introduced metric capacity with liters and milliliters.
1 L=1,000ml; We discussed how easy it is to convert metric measurements because it is a base 10 count.

Instead of doing science I read "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins". The third grade is creating a bulletin board called "The 500 Hats of Third Grade". Each student will create a hat that describes them in some way and they will write five sentences to describe their hat. They will complete this activity tomorrow instead of their morning journal.
