Gods & Goddesses, Clouds, & Even/Odd Multiplication Patterns
Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday in 3rd grade! First thing this morning, we met with our Houses to discuss next week’s Gratitude Day. On Tuesday morning, you will meet with your house and complete a service project for our school or somewhere in our community. This will be a great way to have a grateful heart, especially right before we leave for Thanksgiving break!
When you returned to our room, we had a quick morning meeting, discussed your gratitude activity for the day, sang Happy Birthday to Makenna & Landon and then began our reading rotations!
You completed another daily fix-it sentence and discussed verb tenses with Mrs. Day, read chapter 3 in your little readers with Mrs. Meridith, and practiced your spelling pattern. Then it was time for our read-aloud!
In our reading, you learned about gods and goddesses, along with Roman life and beliefs. You also learned about another type of fiction called a myth. A myth is a story told by ancient cultures to explain why people act a certain way, how things came to be, or how things happen in nature. For a bonus ticket, explain the difference between a myth and a legend.
Miss Erica was here for a science lesson about wind. We went outside and used bubbles to see which direction the wind was blowing. You learned that you can measure wind’s speed and direction and created your own wind socks.
After recess and lunch we continued yesterday’s Mystery Science lesson. We learned about 4 different types of clouds: cumulus, stratus, cumulonimbus, and stratonimbus. Which types are storm clouds?
During math you identified patterns in multiplication and division facts using the multiplication table. Can an even product ever have an odd factor? Comment below for another bonus ticket!
Have a great evening, we will see you tomorrow!
