Mrs. Hogan's Third Grade Math & Science

  • Dear Students and Families,
    Please check this website every Monday morning during our closure for the required and optional assignments for the week. This week's "School to Home" activities are in two categories. We are working on lines and angles and fossils this week. Please try to complete at least 1 Math & 1 Science activity throughout the week.  Please report your progress back to your teacher by email, Bloomz, a photo, a requested phone call or submitting digital work. As we are now in the 4th markind period, grading will be Pass/Fail. I'll also include reinforcement and enrichment activities to review all concepts and continue fraction skills, these are optional, but encouraged. Your specials teachers have assignments posted on their websites too! My office hours (for a more immediate response) are M,W,F 9-12, and T,Th 12-3. I am here to help, together we can make this work the best we can! Our situation is far from ideal, but given lemons, we'll make lemonade!

    Blessings to all,
    Mrs. Hogan

    Optional activities: Good morning, I hope this message finds your family well. I'd like to offer your child some activities to keep skills fresh. I highly recommend Study Island which your child can access through the Muncy website Classlink page. Also, you could continue Xtramath for fact practice. We had been working on fractions. So, baking, cooking and measuring length are wonderful real-life applications for them to try. In science, we had just finished our plant unit and begun our animal unit. I'm seeing many online resources being offered for free right now including virtual field trips, etc. I'm going to compile a list and post later. I will keep you updated as more information comes through. Please feel free to message me via Bloomz or school email. I wish you all well.
