Miss Peters' Google Classroom Testing Post Update

Hello Parents & 3rd Graders,

I was given all of the students' school emails and have entered them into Google Classroom. I have set up three (3) different classes- one for Math, one for Science, and one for Social Studies. Each class has its own class code. I'll put each code below because I'm not sure if you will still need that since I have invited you (your students with the emails I was sent from Mrs. Cowart) to classes already. Please check your (parent's) emails for the three different codes. Please let me know if the codes along with the emails that I have entered work. If you are able to get in answer the sample question under the math class so I can see how answers are submitted and how I can "grade" you on this sample assignment.

Don't forget to update me on how your science projects are coming along! (I did mention this in my Tuesday Check In post below this one.)

Have a wonderful day!

Best wishes,

Miss Peters

How are your science projects coming along? Any questions? Has the instructions document I sent helped? Leave a comment below with how your science project is going!

Make sure you push the "Publish" button once you have finished your comment so it posts onto the blog. If you have trouble leaving a comment please email me your response, so I know you have seen the blog post. :)

Here is a short video to practice the letters of the alphabet in ASL. I would like you to watch it, practice the letters and tomorrow I will post another video with a fun quiz/challenge for you to answer to see if you can recognize whose name I am finger-spelling. Have fun!

Good morning everyone,
Today I would like you to go to Storyline online and listen to the story Carla's Sandwich.  The link is listed below.  Listen to the story, and then describe for me what your unique sandwich would be.  If you make your sandwich send me pictures of it.

I also want to remind you to be reading on Raz.  I am checking how you are doing.  Here is my challenge to you.  If you read five stories on five different days and get 100 on the quiz the first time you take it I will move you up a level.  Remember I get a report saying how you are doing each time you take the test.  Good luck!https://www.storylineonline.net/

Hi everyone,  I just heard about a great website where author Mo Willems is going Doodle Lunch with Mo Willems.  He is the author of the Pigeon books.  He will teach you how to produce doodles.  I have the link below.  Give it a try and email me your doodles.  I will put them on the blog.

Hi everyone,

Today's religion question is this: One of the marks of the church is catholic.  What does catholic mean?

Pet Entertainment!

Dear 3rd Grade Friends!

With all the extra time at home I get to spend more time with my cat April Skye. She is almost 3 years old! She loves to play and entertain herself if no one wants to play or is unable to play because they are busy working on something. I thought it would be fun to post pictures or videos, or stories of our pets. If you have a pet please share in the comments section or through email any fun stories, pictures, or videos.

April was helping me grade your Math Graphs the other day.

She loves to bask in the sun. She found a very sunny spot on the futon in the sun room.

Stay healthy and enjoy the family time! Continue to send me pictures and stories of what you are all doing at home with your families, as well as updates on where you are with your science project! I miss you all!

Miss Peters's March 20 (21st) Check In

Hello 3rd Graders!

I forgot to post on here yesterday. How are all of you doing? It's barely been a week and I miss all of you so much already! How are your science projects coming? Has everyone been able to open the power point through one of the ways I sent it? Please comment and/or email me with your responses.

I have checked with Mrs. Cowart and it sounds like Mr. Evers (or maybe I) have to get your school email address linked to Google Classroom in order for it to work; I'll continue to check into that and get back to all of you on that.

Someone shared with me a fun Science "Weather School" program you may like to tune into Starting Monday at 10am with Steve Beylon from WBAY News! If you tune into it please leave a comment or email me with how it was!

Here's a link, but I'm not sure if it will work:
Steve Beylon Weather School

Here's the post:

*I just discovered that many of you are commenting on my posts! I love it! Miss Ploederl probably gets the email update for it, which is why I just discovered it. Haha. I'll check those more often!*

Hi everyone.  I hope your reading and book report is going well.  I am listing a couple of trivia questions to answer just for fun.

3.  Who invented the telephone?
4.  How many bones are there in the human body?
5.  What is an elephant tusk made of?

Goo luck!!!

Miss Peters's 3/19/2020 Check In

Hello Everyone!
I have attached in an email to parents the Solar System Power Point because I'm not sure if the link to open it that is on the blog is working, or if the people who have asked for access to open it is working when I grant access to it.
I will look into more tutorials and information on how to get Google Classroom working, because I received many emails that the class code was not working.

Please remember to email me your "How Rich Are the Leprechauns?" Pictograph worksheet.
If you had a test sent home please complete and email it to me by tomorrow, Friday, March 20, 2020.

Miss Peters's Fun "Challenge"!

Dear 3rd Graders!
I would like you to try out this fun challenge in your own way. If you can do it similar to the video that is fine, but if you don't live near streets make it up! This is just for fun and to fill in extra time you have. Please send me a video of it after you have tried it so I can see what you came up with; if possible I'll try to share the videos with the class for everyone to see.

Hi everyone.  I hope everything is going well.  I have a question you.  Using your religion book look the answer to this question and comment back to me.  What are the four marks of the church?

Miss Peters's March 18th Check In

Hello 3rd Graders!

It is definitely different not seeing you at school! Miss you dearly already. Has anyone completed any of the fun St. Patrick's items that were sent home on Monday? Remember these are just for fun and do not have to be returned back to me, with the exception of the Pictograph worksheet. Once you have finished that one either send me a picture of it through email or bring it back to school so I can see how you did on it.

Have any of you started with your science project yet? How are they going? Learning lots of information about your planet? Comment in the comments section or email me to update me on how the projects are going.

Science Project 
Each student chose a planet to research. Below is a list of the planet they chose; if they were absent on Monday I assigned a planet for them.
Nick- Earth
Journey- Mercury
Ella- Venus
Onnie- Saturn
Iley- Mars
Jackson- Uranus
Elliot- Jupiter
Evelyn- Neptune

Link to NASA's Planet Page

Link for Solar System Power Point from Heart2HeartLearning.com

*If the links don't work let me know so I can email them to you. I've never tried posting a link before; first time for everything.*

As of now projects are due April 6th; keep watching for a later date. I'll let you know how you will have to present if we have to do it online. As of right now that is how it is looking.

*A note for 3rd graders and Parents*
I've been trying to work ahead and get a Google Classroom started. I have been successful (hopefully; fingers crossed) in creating an assignment that I would like you to respond to so I can see if it works or not. I've just started trying it out so I'm not sure how it will go. I'll email all parents the class code so you can join Miss Peters's 3rd Grade Google Classroom. Try to do this as soon as possible so I know if it works. Thank you! :)

Have a wonderful evening, continue to work hard, and enjoy the extra family time!

Best wishes,

Miss Peters

Good morning,  I miss all of you already.  How is your reading going for your book report?  Have you learned anything interesting about your person?  Share what you have learned so far using the comment section.

I want you to keep up your reading skills.  Read on Raz each day and do the quiz.  I will be checking Raz to see how you are doing.


We are  preparing for Lent.  The students have decided what they are going to do for Lent and have written it in their cocoon and placed the cocoon on the tree on our religion board.  Hopefully our sacrifices during Lent will turn into beautiful butterflies, a sign of new life in Jesus.
