Here are some suggested tasks for students in 3/4 to practise independently at home:

Today you will work on independent reading and writing a reading response. You should spend about 20-30 minutes reading, and then about 15 minutes writing down your thinking. Your reading response should include the title and author, a short summary, and your own thinking. It could include predictions, connections, questions, what you liked or disliked, or what you think the author did well. Here are some suggestions for what to read:

Writing

Today you can choose a topic and do some personal writing. If you are looking for a story idea, you can use the image here to inspire you!

We have been learning about how to use short, sharp sentences, and long sentences to have an impact. When you finish writing, reread your work and see how many short and how many long sentences you have used.

Maths:

Today for maths it is time to practise your skip counting or multiplication facts. Choose the pattern you are working on, and how you would like to practise.

• Whisper count – count the ‘in between’ numbers in a whisper and then say the pattern number out loud (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 etc)
• Use an online interactive 100 grid or number line to practise the pattern. (Here are some examples: link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4)
• Set a timer and write out the pattern. See how far you can get in one minute then aim to beat your own score.
• Sing the pattern to a fun tune and make up actions.
• Find a counting song (there are many available online) that you like and put it on and sing along to practise.
• Draw an array with rows of the pattern number and write the counting pattern down the side of each row.

Good morning 3/4s. This week we’ve had fun with looking at some of the weird and wonderful International Days Of …

Did you manage to count all your buttons during yesterday’s  Count Your Buttons Day?

While these days are fun, today is Caps Lock Day, Nut Day and even Smart is Cool Day, there are days, and months, that serve the purpose of making us aware of important issues or concerns around the world.

For example, as well as being Black Cat Awareness Month and Pizza Month, October is also Fire Prevention Month and Cyber Security Awareness Month. Both issues we should be educating ourselves about.

Did you know this Saturday is Make A Difference Day! It was created to help encourage us to take at least one day a year to try to make a difference in the world. It could be a big act or some simple, what can you do to make a difference?

Thursday

Morning 3/4s, welcome to Count Your Buttons Day!!! Yeah. If you collected buttons how would you sort them? By size, colour, type, age?

It is also Reptile Awareness Day and  Apple Day. So if you are into Braeburns, Caimans, Discoveries, Green Anoles, Crocodilias, Red Jonagolds, Squamatas, Pink Ladies,  Gharials, or Sulcatas, then today is for you. (Some of these are apples, some are reptiles, can you figure it out?)

Wednesday

Morning 3/4s. Welcome to International Sloth Day.

This day is dedicated to learning from the sloths of the world. They can teach us to just relax and take things easy. It is also about raising awareness about the many sloths that are injured by humans each year. Did you know many of these remarkable creatures are captured each year and are sold to be pets? They are cute but don’t you think they should be left alone?

Today in your lessons you have another mystery to work through in reading. In writing you get to write the first draft of the mystery you have been planning, while in maths you will be working in your small groups with your teacher.  Please bring your math’s book, a pencil and an eraser.

Good morning 3/4s. First, remember to check the specialist timetable, there have been some changes for this week.

Next, as you know yesterday was Toy Camera Day and Friday was Global Hand Washing Day. While I couldn’t find out a theme for today I did discover October was both Black Cat Awareness Month and Pizza Month.
