The following are ideas and suggestions to use with your children in the event that school is unexpectedly closed. Please refer to our 3rd Grade Mapping Guide for the content we are currently working on. This will help when selecting books or other materials for your child.
After reading, have your child complete one of the following activities:
- STP (Stop, Think, Paraphrase). Your child can read orally and then use this strategy to improve comprehension. This will also improve a child’s fluency.
- Your child can write 1-2 sentences for each of the following: beginning, middle, and end of their book. This can also be done at the end of each chapter if your child is reading a chapter book.
- SWBS- Somebody Wanted But So. For this strategy, the child should focus on the main character, what the character is wanted to do, but (whatever the conflict is), and so (the conclusion). In some books, there may be more than one conflict.

Each child has been given the Investigations Student Math Handbook, which should be kept in backpacks at all times. This can be used for activity ideas, as well as practicing the many games we have explored in class. Game activities can be located in the back of the book and can often be played with any deck of cards or dice.
You can also visit the following interactive websites for other activities:

Refer to the mapping guide to see specifically the content we are studying. This information can be used to Google appropriate and interesting websites for ideas or interactive activities to be used with your child. Students can also write interesting facts or create posters, review games, flashcards, mini-flipbooks, pop-up books, or anything else that would be fun to share with classmates. Encourage children to use their imagination to create other projects.
