Sea Life Orlando Field Trip
We are sending home field trip permissions slips this week. Please turn in your child’s form and money by Thursday, February 28th. We will choose chaperones the week of March 4th.
Science Learning Targets:
We will continue our unit on classifying plants.
SC.3.L.15.2: Classify flowering and nonflowering plants into major groups such as those that produce seeds, or those like ferns and mosses that produce spores, according to their physical characteristics.
Science Learning Activities: Students will learn about how plants respond to light, gravity, and heat. Students will conduct research through reading passages about plant responses. They will hypothesize about what will happen to plants when they are given no light, turned over, or results of different temperatures on a plant. They will also make observations of these plants and the effects the stimuli will have. Students will classify plants as either flowering or nonflowering.
Dormancy: when plants growth stops or slows down in order to stay alive
Germination: when a seed begins to grow
Wilting: the drooping and shriveling up of s plant, usually due to lack of water or heat
roots: part of the plant that soaks up the nutrients and water from the soil, holds the plant in the ground
stem: part of the plant that brings the water and nutrients to the rest of the plant, holds the plant up
leaves: part of the plant that makes the food
photosynthesis: the process which a plant makes its own food
seeds: the part of the plant that is responsible for reproduction of the plant
Math Learning Targets:
Students will be able to describe and classify polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals by their attributes.
Students will be able to identify, estimate and measure mass in kilograms and grams.
Math Learning Activities:
Students will participate in our unit on classifying and describing polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals from My Math chapter 14. Students will do practice activities and work in small groups. Next, we will work on a problem-solving lesson and begin working on measuring mass and volume.
IXL: CC4, CC1, CC6, DD3
This a review week. There will be a summative spelling and vocabulary assessments. There will also be a practice FSA on Thursday and Friday. We have been working hard on using our test taking strategies.
ELA Activities: Students will participate in small groups during centers and also practicing on Iready and Istation.

3.RL.2.8: Describe how paragraphs in a text are connected by comparisons.
3.L.3.4b: Determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known affix is added to a known word.
3.L.3.6: Use academic and domain-specific vocabulary.
Comprehension: Ancient Toothpaste, Writing on a Wasp’s Nest
3.W.1.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
IXL: G.6, Q.1, O.6, M.2, N.1. P.5, EE.7
