Homework

For all 3rd graders if you would like to play with the story maker we used in class follow this link. https://www.carnegielibrary.org/storymaker/

 

Get up and move!  For every 30 minutes of screen time do 5 minutes of movement.  This can be a quick walk around the house (inside or outside), a few exercises like jumping jacks and mountain climbers, or just stand up and sit back down continuously during commercials to work those legs.

Remember have fun and maybe even make it a family challenge of some kind.

Resources

The following is a list of some of the sites that we will be using in some if not all classes.  I encourage that the students, if possible, utilize these at home as well.  I will update and add to list as the year progresses, please come back.

www.kidztype.com

Site used to practice your typing skills.  You can also test your skills by taking the 1,3, or 5 minute typing test.

www.attinternetservice.com/kids-internet-guide/

A quick fun activity book for students learn some facts about the internet and its history.

games.sense-lang.org/kayak.php

and

games.sense-lang.org/olympia.php

Great game to practice your keyboarding skills.  This activity will encourage you to not look at the keyboard while typing.

kidstyping.weebly.com

-The site that uses dance mat typing, which teaches how to type with the correct fingerings for each key.

kidrex.org

– A quick research site that anyone can use for safe searches.  The information is written for all ages of reading and reading comprehension.

– Another site that we used in conjunction with the Hour of Code week.  This starts off as a fairly simple task.  Once you get past the first section there is a bit more critical thinking that is involved.

Code.org

– We used this site to promote the “Hour of Code” week.  It is a great site to use for any students or adults to learn about and how to code.

Botlogic.us

– This “game” starts to show how coding works and gets students see what coding looks like for each move that is made.

TVOkids.com
