2. So, we've recently worked on 3.NF.2 and have been learning how to plot and identify fractions on a number line. We started by watching this video from Learn Zillion (my go to website...LOVE it): Learn Zillion. We did several days of drawing fraction models above our number line as the video shows. So then we wrote our names and related our names to a number line. The whole name represented the whole and each letter represented part of the whole. The kids seemed to really enjoy this simple activity and it helped solidify their understanding of the number line!
3. In Science, we've been learning about the Skeletal System and my kiddos have been super excited about this unit! I gave them this project menu (that you can get from my TPT store for free by clicking on the picture). This has been highly motivating because first of all they get to choose which projects to complete and also because some of the activities are just plain fun! The projects aren't due for another week so I hope to get some pics up then!
4. Not too long ago, my team gave the third graders a practice EOG test (or READY now) because our kiddos have never taken such a lengthy paper/pencil test. (They test each quarter on the computer through ClassScape assessments but their end of year test is paper/pencil and they have to bubble it all....) Anywho, one standard that my students are still need practice with is RL.3.9 so I whipped up this little graphic organizer to help them compare and contrast two stories. You can grab it for free at my TPT store (just click on the pic!)
5. Finally, I just have to praise the Lord for how he's working in my son's life! Last night he was acting up alot (nothing major, just typical little boy stuff) and I was talking to my hubby later about whether he seems to really understand repentance or not because usually we have to tell him to ask for forgiveness in his prayers. Well, we pray every morning together at his school and this morning his prayer was simple but perfect. He said, "Dear God, please forgive me of my sins. Thank you for giving me a fresh start today!" Remember y'all that you are forgiven! Enjoy your weekend friends!
