Homework for 3B

    March 27, 2020 

    Welcome to week 2 of Remote Learning!



    Starting Monday, March 16, all learning at St. Matthias School will be done remotely. For third graders this means:

    • Every morning, Monday through Friday, Ms. Crimmel and Miss Allegro will each post on their classroom websites work for the students to complete. Some of the work will be in books the students brought home but some will need to be done online.
    • Additionally, both teachers will be online from 9AM until 12 Noon each day Monday through Friday. If students or parents have questions, they may email the teachers. Teachers will return emails as quickly as possible. After 12 Noon teachers will continue to check emails but it may take a while longer for a response.
    • Each day, students should also check the website of the specials teacher that they would have visited that day to see if there is an assignment for that class.

    This is new for all of us. We will need to practice patience. We will all be okay and we will continue to learn, just in a different format. Be safe and remember that God has endless love for us.

    Tests & Quizzes for the week: 




    Homework:   Parents many students are still learning multiplication and division facts from 1-12. Please study with your student each night. Thanks! 



    Thursday: Today we begin measuring time - both with a clock and calendar. For the next few days we will be looking at time. This website will give you a clock to practice with https://www.visnos.com/demos/clock

    You can also use one from home or make one on paper or with a paper plate.

    Things you should know -

    Clocks break an hour into minutes or groups of minutes. There are 60 minutes on an analog clock and they are broken into 12 groups of 5 minutes each (multiplication fact 12x5=60).

    Telling time always starts with the hour hand (the smaller one). You look at the number it is pointing to or that it has just passed - and that's the hour. Then you use the longer hand - the minute hand to be more exact and tell the time to the minute. The numbers are written every five minutes and the dashes inbetween give the minutes past the five minute marks.

    Digital clocks are easier to use but don't let us do enough math (how SAD!).  Analog clocks let us see fractions, multiplication and division problems and elapsed time. 

    1) Check Wednesday's work:

       Pg. 657 - 1) unit  2) mass  3) capacity or liquid volume  4) liter  

       5) milliliter  6) kilogram  7) gram  8) 1 liter  9) 1 milliliter

       Pg. 658 - 10) 200 mL  11) 400 mL  12) 1 g  13) 1 kg  

      14) 500-473=27mL  15) 132+132=x=264g  16) 100mL

    2) 24 Game - 8, 8, 4, 9 - Post your answers on Google Classroom

    3) Try your telling time skills on pages 660-661

    4) Free game to practice telling time: 



    Friday: Today we are looking at time as fractions! We are going to break the clock into four equal pieces called quarters or two equal pieces called halves. 

    When it is 7:30, we can also say it is half-past seven because half of the time in the hour is gone. 

    When it is 8:15, we can also say it is a quarter past 8 because a quarter of the hour is gone. fraction circle one-fourth green

    Now comes the tricky one. When it is 2:45, we have two choices. We can say it is three-quarters past 2 OR we can say it is a quarter to 3. fraction circle three-fourths green

    Just draw the picture for the fraction to help you decide the correct wording. 

    1) Check your work from Thursday:

    Page 660 - 1) five fifteen  2) 12:20  3) 1:50  4) 10:28  5) three forty-four

    Page 661 - 6) eight minutes after 5 5:08  7) eleven fifty-five 11:55  8) two forty-two 2:42  9) six fifty-seven 6:57  10) 3:45  11) 7:17  12) 4:02  13) 8:53

    2) 24 Game - 1, 2, 6, 6  Post your answer on Google Classroom

    3) Try your skills on telling time on these ten problems: (sorry this isn't in our book, so write your answers on a piece of paper).

    What time is it?

    1. half past 9                 2. half past 11       

    3. a quarter past 6         4. a quarter past 5

    5. a quarter to 7             6. a quarter to 1

    7. three-quarters past 4   8. three-quarters past 8

    9. 2:15                         10. 3:30

    We will check this on Monday. 

    Science:  All plants are growing at my home while we are away from school. See picture above. Sorry, I couldn't get it to turn straight! 


    Wednesday: You are an organism. You also have traits that have been passed down by your parents and grandparents to you. Think about the color of your hair and eyes. Is your hair straight or curly? Look at the shape of your nose. Was your parent a good student? Is your parent or grandparent a good athlete? These and other things that tell about you, are traits that have been passed down. Today you need to tell about some of your traits and who in your family that trait came from. 

    Go to Google Classroom for the rest of your science lesson.



    Social Studies:  

    Nice job on the Explorer's Tests!!

    Thursday:  We are starting to study Colonists - people that came to the New World from other places to start a new life. Go to Google Classroom to find more info. 

    Friday:  Think about that journey on the ship to America. Watch this video clip about the Pilgrims and their journey. 


    Life was difficult for the colonists. We will study more about them on Monday.






    1) Think back to yesterday's assignment. Look back at your answers on page 149. Why is it hard to treat people that are different from us with kindness? When we look at someone with bright purple hair and tattoos or someone that is homeless, why is it hard to think of them as the face of Jesus? 

    2) On Google Classroom write a short response.

    Thursday: I loved the well thought out answers from yesterday! Many of you wrote about how hard it is to be kind when people look different because they might seem scary, or they just don't seem the same as us. You also wrote about the need to see as Jesus sees. How we need to try to see the person inside and not be concerned with what the person looks like. Well done to all!

    Today let's take a break and watch a video clip on week 2 of Operation Rice Bowl.  


    Friday: I have missed watching Story Keepers with you. Several of our friends missed the last episode we watched. Let's watch Episode 11 today. Here is the link: Enjoy!




    Other:  Check Mrs. Bowers website for Spanish today.

    For those parents of students who are receiving speech and language services, please check your email inbox for a message from Mrs. Zehnbauer .  She plans to send  activities  for your children to practice at home on a weekly basis.  If you have not received an email from Mrs. “Z', please feel free to contact her at donnarose3@comcast.net.  


    Acers -  Students should be reading 20 minutes a night, within their reading range.
