    Gr 3 Day 3 Math

    Overview: Adding 3-digit Numbers

    Estimated Time: Approximately 45 minutes


    You can use what you know about place value to help you add 3-digit numbers. 

    Three quick things to know:

    1. For tutorials on how to access online Math in Focus resources using Ed Your Friend in Learning visit https://www.cbsd.org/Page/1511
    2. If you cannot print activities, you may write the answers on a sheet of paper.
    3. Please look at Student Workbook Chapter 2 pages 103 - 105 and 112-115 if you need guidance.


    1. Complete the sheet called Gr 3 Day 3 Adding With and Without Regrouping If you are not sure how to answer a question, write a question mark. (?)
    2. Play "Add Mentally." For directions, Log into Ed and find Chapter 2 page 94 of the Student Workbook.  You can use the document Gr 3 Adding and Subtracting Mentally Number Cards.  If you don’t have the number cards, you can make number cards with the numbers 35-55.  
    3. Log into Ed. Play the mini-game Chapter 2: Maze Addition Within 10,000.

    Writing and Spelling


    Overview: Respond to a writing prompt

    **You should have started your sensory details story about summer yesterday! Hopefully you wrote your first paragraph to introduce your story (with at least 3-5 sentences)!! Please continue with paragraph 2 today using one of your senses to describe summer!**

    Estimated Time: 30 to 45 minutes over five days.  Pace yourself! Try to write one paragraph each day. Each sense (hear, smell, taste…) can be a separate paragraph. Don’t forget your opening and closing paragraphs too!

    Explanation of Activity/Assignment:  Practice skills you have learned over the course of the year--prewriting, drafting, revising and editing, and publishing.

    Quick Things to Know:  The five senses: hear, feel, smell, taste, see.  We just described spring using sensory details. (Ex:  I hear buzzing bees landing delicately on flowers as the sun kisses their fuzzy bodies!) Now, you get to use your senses to describe summer!  Have fun! Don’t forget to use awesome adjectives and vivid verbs too!


    1. Respond to the following prompt: Write a paragraph with sensory details to describe summer.  
    2. Create a rough draft and then revise and edit your writing.
    3. Type your draft into a word document and save it as "Sensory Details in Summer"
    4. If you finish your story early, please free write! You could even write sensory details for your birthday, sensory details in fall, sensory details for Easter….


    Overview:  Practice spelling words using games and activities.

    Estimated Time:  15 minutes every day.

    Overview:  Identify Force as a Push or Pull

    Estimated time: 30-45 minutes

    Explanation of Activity/Assignment: Click the link to print out the cards and Venn Diagram.  Cut the cards out.  Use what you know about pushes and pulls (force) to sort the cards.  Sort the cards into categories on the Venn Diagram. Do they represent a push, pull, or both?  If you can’t print the cards, walk around your house and find toys that require you to push or pull them.  Put them into categories!  Post a pic of your sort on Seesaw if you’d like to share!
