Below are some interactive videos for perimeter.  These are completely optional videos that go along with the student work packet from last week.

Think about what we do when we see the word – perimeter… We box in the RIM to remind us to use all of the sides of our polygon. We change the “t” into an addition symbol (+) to remind us add all of the sides

Google Classroom 101 for Parents

I miss you like crazy! Wash your hands and mind your parents! This is a stressful time for us all, but we are all in this together! Love you!

If you pick up the work packets from school, here is some additional information regarding two of the papers inside of the packet.  If you have any questions or need help with any of the papers in the packet, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]

One of the pages has butterflies. Please feel free to color the butterflies.  Under the first butterfly, write 3 facts about butterflies.  Underneath the second butterfly, write 3 opinions about butterflies.

Watch a video on the life cycle of a butterfly.

I also wanted to explain the Understanding Area work page.   Here are the answers for the fill in the blanks.  Area is the SPACE a shape takes up.   It is measured in SQUARE UNITS such as square inches or square centimeters.  To find the area simply count the squares.  Area is Square! Students can learn more about Area by clicking the image below.

Remember the Area and Perimeter mini-lesson?  Here is something to help you remember what we talked about right before Spring Break.

During the next few weeks of “social distancing”, the kids may be looking for things to do.  Grade-level practice packets will be available for pick-up outside the Intermediate beginning Tuesday morning. These packets will not be graded they are just for practice.  In addition to those activities, some links are provided below for both online activities and activities/games in all subjects that may be made and played at home.

ONLINE PRACTICE:

1. The kids can continue to practice their math facts using XtraMath.  This login information was placed in front of their student planner at the beginning of the school year.  If you are unable to log in, email me at [email protected]  I get daily reports on the kids’ progress.

2. Multiplication.com  is a free website where students can practice their multiplication facts playing games.

2. Several math assignments have been made in Prodigy–but the kids MUST use their login from school.  This login information was placed in front of their student planner at the beginning of the school year.  The assignments ensure that the kids are working on at least 3rd grade-level skills.  If you are unable to locate this information, please email me at [email protected]

3. Several third-grade math assignments have also been made in Education Galaxy.  Their login information is also located in their student planner. If you are unable to locate this information, please email me at [email protected]

Math Homework:

Math homework is due this Thursday.   It was passed out today, Friday.   Please study all of your multiplication facts this week.  (0’s-10’s) Students are expected to recall facts to multiply up to 10 by 10 with automaticity.

Multiplication Test: Mad Three Minutes

We will take a multiplication test on Tuesday this week due to benchmarks.  The test consists of 30 multiplication problems.  Instead of giving one minute, students will be given three minutes.  This grade will be averaged with last week's Mad Three Minute in the grade book.
