    Design Your Own Tic-Tac-Toe Variation!

    Want to challenge yourself, but need some ideas?  Complete the tasks below to fill in the squares.  Yes, I know.  There are more tasks than squares!  That's where you come in.  You can decide how best to spend your time.  Also, you must fill all squares, unlike traditional tic-tac-toe.  But you've got plenty of time :)  








    To fill each square, you must complete one of the following:

    →Recommend a book to someone – 5 times

    →Read for information (Use NCWiseOwl – teachers have password) – 10 times

    →Read aloud to improve public speaking skills – 10 times

    →Read aloud to sibling, adult, etc. – 10 times

    →Have someone read aloud to you – 10 times

    →Listen to a podcast – 5 times

    →Watch a virtual field trip – 5 times

    →Use Brainpop.com (teachers and Ms. Ruby have login info) – 10 times

    →Read a classic (Free ones at https://www.bookshare.org/browse/collection/368172) – 1 book

    →Take a virtual tour of the Smithsonian National Museum of National History (https://naturalhistory.si.edu/visit/virtual-tour) - 2 tours

    →Listen to a free Audible book (https://stories.audible.com/discovery) – 1 book

    →Find a recipe and cook/bake – 5 times

    (I cannot post password info to NCWiseOwl and username and password to Brain Pop on the web.  But don't let that stop you from using these great resources.  Send me an email, and I'll get that info to you asap.  (druby@wcpss.net)

    Turn in!  Create your own 3 x 3 grid and fill it in with your activities.  Include name, grade and track.  I'll have some fun prizes in the Media Center when we return!
