Think Tank in Third
Weekly Update- March 17, 2017
Week at a Glance
Math- We're continuing our fractions unit. This week we looked at fractions of a set by sorting shapes into different categories and determining the fraction each set represented.
Science- Today we will program our circuits to light up, using Arduino boards and the scratch program. On Friday, we had an issue with the boards doing what we wanted them to do, but it was a great teachable moment that sometimes things don't always go as planned and we just have to be flexible and keep moving.
Social Studies- We have a lot of Flat Stanley mail rolling in and have received a few of our completed Flat Stanley packages. This is the most participation we've ever received on this project, so thank you!! It's been great to explore new places and customs through authentic learning experiences.

Typing Practice- Important!
We have set students up on a website called www.typingclub.com. This site is great because it shows students where to place their fingers, and which fingers to use to type certain letters.
Student login will be the same as their google login.
Login example: firstname.lastname@example.org
password will be eagles3!

Students in grades 3-5 will need headphones for portions of the state tests in April. We would like for all students to have their own set of headphones for comfort and sanitary reasons. Headphones will be provided for students who do not have their own on the day of testing.
If you haven’t done so already, please send in one pair of headphones for your child to use during testing and in the classroom. A basic set of headphones or earbuds is all that is needed for testing. Please label the headphones and send in a labeled plastic ziploc bag to help with storage and travel. We ask that headphones be sent in ASAP. Thank you!
