    ONLINE LEARNING TIPS AND STRATEGIES
    From the students of 3HD...

    • Make a To-Do list - copy the items down on paper or on a white board and cross off as you complete a task
      • make a list for the whole day
      • OR make a list for each subject, and complete that subject before you move on to the next
      • consider putting the list in order from hardest to easiest to get the difficult tasks out of the way OR put them in another order based on how you're feeling that day
    • Set goals and rewards - for example, "I can go outside and play for 15 minutes after I submit my math work." or "I can get a snack after I work on my writing assignment for 30 minutes."
    • Take breaks - don't sit at the computer too long, get up and move, play and brain break

    OTHER ACTIVITIES (NOT REQUIRED)

    Tech Activities:

    Tech-Free Activities:

    • Read a just-right book and work on your reading strategies:
      • Stamina - try your own readathon, use a stopwatch to see how long you can read without stopping!
      • Decoding 
      • Fluency - read out loud to yourself or someone else in your best read-aloud voice
      • Comprehension - retell and summary
    • Write and illustrate your own picture book. Think about which authors inspire you and use our strategies from personal narrative or realistic fiction writing.
    • Math Activities:
      • Print out a set of Fraction Strips, color them in, then cut them out and store them in a ziplock bag
      • With help from an adult, find a recipe and cook something at home - talk about where you find fractions and what they mean
      • Play a multiplication card game (you'll need a regular deck of cards, dice, and/or game pieces)
    • 30 Day LEGO Challenge with Mrs. Demich
    • Mrs. Evan's Kindness Journal Challenge
    • Be the teacher! Prepare a math, reading, writing, science, or social studies lesson and teach it to someone in your family.
    • Choreograph your own brain break! Pick a song or a theme and come up with the moves. Practice, practice, practice and then teach it to someone else.
