Cole was our super hero last week. He could be seen roaming the halls with his cape billowing behind him. Is he safe? Why, yes he is! Is he responsible? Of course! Is he respectful? You bet! Thanks Cole!
We enjoyed a wonderful visit from Remax today. They did a great presentation that incorporated math, history, science, and reading diagrams. After the presentation, one class at a time was invited in to the envelope (the balloon part of the hot air balloon). Students were amazed at just how huge it was. It is 77,000 square cubic feet, so 77,000 basketballs would fit in there.
Time to pack the balloon back up
Sam was our super hero last week! He did a great job on his poster and on presenting it to the class. Thanks, Sam!
Wow! We have third grade experts on so many topics! Students were to pick a topic that they know a lot about. They are learning to group information together, write an inviting introduction, choose expert words to have in bold print, and use topic sentences to write out their chapters. I am so excited! It looks like I will be learning about Michael Jackson, horses, dogs, tractors, pigs, skiing, cats, softball, hockey, camping, hiking, and many, many more topics. When you get a chance, ask your child what he/she chose to write about.
Here are a few examples of covers, tables of contents, and introductions.
Elwood was our super hero before spring break. He is a hard worker who is kind to others. Way to go Elwood!
Before we can even begin to discuss apostrophes in possessive nouns, students need a review of what a noun is. To do this, students made a noun flap book. We went over and wrote the definition for noun, singular noun, plural noun, common noun, proper noun, singular possessive noun, and plural possessive noun. Then students went through magazines and catalogs in search of examples of each of those. They did a great job!
Yesterday and today we wrapped up March is Reading Month by having a Read in your Pajamas Party and having Donuts for Dads and Moms. It has been a wonderful month. I can't believe it's over already!
Sharing a book with someone is the best!
