As many of you know, the first week of March is "Read Across America" week. We will be celebrating at Reedy Creek in many ways. We will have spirit week, you will be participating in the reading competition for prizes, we will have the spring book fair in the media center, and we will be completing some activities in the computer lab.
One of Dr. Seuss' famous books is called "I Wish I Had Duck Feet" which is about a boy who wants animal parts such as duck feet or rhino horns. You are going to be creating YOUR WILD SELF, creating an avatar that resembles you in real life, and then adding animal parts to it. The end result will look silly and definitely make you laugh! Here is one that Mrs. Rood made of Mrs. English!
First, you will create YOUR WILD SELF by clicking here. After you create YOUR WILD SELF you will be practicing your writing and typing! You will be writing three sentences about how you look and what you will do with your new animal parts. Think about the different ways to write that will make it interesting for the readers. Can you ask a question? Maybe you could tell them something really exciting! You will type your sentences on this template. We will save this to your H drive (lunch number). At the end you can print both your picture and your sentences to bring home and share with your family.
You have been practicing using what you know about place value and creating proof drawings to help you decide whether one number is greater than, less than or equal to another number. Remember the symbol > means greater than, < means less than and = means equal. Click here to play a game and practice your understanding. You will need to choose whole numbers.
In science you have been practicing measuring different objects and comparing their length. Who is taller? Which person is shortest? This week you will be practicing the same skills in technology by measuring different parts of the computer. Click here to see what you will be doing. If you finish early you can practice your skills by clicking here.
