These are some of the major objectives we have covered this year:
- Fractions (identify fractions, fractions on a number line, equivalent fractions, comparing fractions with the same numerator or denominator (remember third grade only deals with fractions with denominators of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8))
- Time (telling time and finding elapsed time)
- Adding/Subtracting within 1,000 with and without regrouping
- 1 and 2 step word problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
- Rounding to the nearest ten and hundred
- Find area and perimeter
Study multiplication facts!!!
About the Teacher
A little about Mrs. Bledsoe I grew up in New York. I moved to Southaven when I was 16 years old and still live here. I live in Southaven with my husband Roy and our dog Perry. I am the oldest of 4 siblings and we are all super close. I love getting to hang out with them and when we are together we are always laughing. I also enjoy reading! I try to do some DIY around the house and sometimes it goes much better than others. I love flowers and keep hoping to develop a green thumb but so far no luck. I also love Starbucks and Diet
I graduated high school from Southaven High. I went on to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Ole Miss. I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education with a focus on reading from Fort Hays State University and am currently working on my specialist degree in Educational Leadership at Ole Miss.
I have taught 3rd grade at Horn Lake Intermediate for four years. Before I started teaching here I was one of the school's TST coaches.
A Message from Mrs. Bledsoe
Hey Kiddos I am missing you so much! I hope you are staying safe and making good choices. Remember to be the leader I know you are. While we aren't in school together please work on your iReady lessons, study your multiplication facts, and read. It is so important to continue to grow! If you need anything use this form to contact me or ask your parents if you can text me! BIG HUGS!!!!
Parents - I know this is new for all of us but I am available if you need anything. As always my first priority is your child's well being. If they are stressing or having any problems let me know. While at home have your child work on iReady, study multiplication facts, and read. If you are in need of any extra resources or support please reach out.
Distance Learning Plan
HLIS will be using the i-Ready platform for our ELA and Math Distance Learning lessons. This platform allows me to continually monitor student progress in order to provide students with needed support and help our team plan for upcoming lessons.
Password: Student's lunch number
The web version works best through Google Chrome. Also, there is an i-Ready app available for iPads.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Lessons for the Week
May 17th -- May 23rd 3rd Grade Distance Learning Lessons
Please complete this week's assigned lessons before going back and finishing the previous week's lessons.
In ELA this week, you will be completing scavenger hunts and writing extension activities for this last week of distance learning this school year. You can get the scavenger hunts and extension activities by using one of the following methods: (1) the document on Mrs. Peacock's website titled "Distance Learning Free Scavenger Hunts", (2) pick up a printed copy from school that is available now on a first-come basis, or (3) I can email you the materials for you to print. Students should complete at least four of the six hunts and extension activities. They can be turned into the school starting Wednesday or you can send pictures to me.
