Ideas for Learning at Home

Reading
*Read for 20 minutes each day
Use a plain sheet of paper to LOG your reading over your break.  I would like for you to record the date/title of the book/author.

*You can use your RAZ-KIDS or Tumblebook accounts to read.  
RAZ-Kids login is in your agenda and Tumbebooks login is haymarketes/reads

*Use this website to read different poems.  
https://www.poetry4kids.com/
As you read, write the name of the poem down on a sheet of paper and who you believe to be the SPEAKER of the poem.  I would also like to you write a sentence or two about what made the poem special.  

*Use this website for reading comprehension passages and questions for understanding.  On the left side, under filters choose (3rd grade) and then choose a passage.  These passages are all nonfiction.

*Use these StudyJams video clips from Scholastic.  Check out the ones on EcosystemsFood ChainsFood Webs, and Changes in Ecosystems. They are short and sweet and have lots of applicable information.  Watch the video clips twice and pause as you go through it because the information can be presented kind of fast.  Write facts about your learning in a notebook or on a sheet of paper.  Also, try the TEST YOURSELF feature.
