Calleigh and Emma worked on this cool project, called SIGNS OF SPRING. As you can see the bear has come out of hibernation! Although he may have gone back in after Friday's storm!! Way to go, girls!! So creative!! :)

Read- 20 minutes daily

Writing/Word Work- The following short story has 12 mistakes. Find the mistakes, rewrite it correctly and practise reading it aloud.

               

                                        My Fish Tank

I have a really cool fish tank with lots of excitin things in side. Their is guppies, tetras, and a tiny shark inside. Also, their are three snail that climb up the glass walls. They eate the green algae and keep the tank clean  A frog named flipper also live in the tank, but he usually hide under the rocks. It's fun to watch all of the different creatures in mi tank. 

 

Challenge#1- Write a few sentences about your weekend. Include a few mistakes. Challenge someone to find them. 

Challenge#2- Write 2 sentences using there (is a place- not here but there) and 2 sentences using their (ownership- their home, their dog).

 

Math- Another dice game- Circles and Stars- You will need a die and paper/pencil. The first player rolls the die and draws that many circles on their page. They roll a second time and draw that many stars inside each circle. How many total? Record the answer. Player 2 follows the same steps. At the end of 10 turns, the player with the most stars is the winner.

Challenge- Use 2 dice!! Use repeated addition if it's a larger fact that you don't know yet. 

3D shapes- Go on a scavenger hunt in your home/yard/neighbourhood. Try and find 5 of each of the following: cylinder, cone, sphere, pyramid, rectangular prism and cube. Make a list. 

Telling Time- Continue telling time at home. Do what we did in class. Every once in awhile look at an analog or digital clock. Ask yourself: What time is it now? What time will it be in 30 minutes? What time was it 20 minutes ago?

 

Science- Now that we are well into spring, more and more birds will be coming into our yards. I've seen crows and tiny brown birds. The brown birds are about the same size as chickadees. I looked up images of similiar birds, and I think they may be sparrows. 

Your challenge is to create a bird feeder with items from around your home. If you are able to get bird seed that's great. If not, treat the birds to scrap vegetables, leftover baked potatoes, old fruit and/or bits of bread. It's ok if the food is stale/wilted but make sure it's not moldy. Mold will make the birds sick. :( Get help to chop the food up into tiny pieces. Take a picture of your feeder (hopefully with birds at it), and email it to me for my teacher page. :)

 

Just for fun!

Good morning, everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! The big snowstorm on Good Friday was a bit of a surprise! I bet a lot of you went outside and made the last snowman of 2020! The next post will be your home learning for the week. As we roll along with this new way of learning, I want to remind you that at any time you can go back and do, or redo, something from a previous week. This especially applies to games and sites. Have a great week! I guess we have some rain coming. I'll be phoning later in the week, but don't hesitate to email me should you need anything.

Take care! Stay safe!

Love,

Ms. Hackett

Congratulations on winning February's District Math Challenge!! :) You did a great job working in teams to create 3D snow shapes. Luckily, we were able to open and use stuff from our basket before school closed. :)

Great job on our Art/Math project, 3/4H! Your symmetrical mittens are fabulous! Take a close look at the photo and you'll see our analog clock. What time did I take the picture?
