Third grade had an amazing time making Peace Cranes for international peace day. We cannot wait to find a school to exchange them with. We had a wonderful time learning about St Katharine Drexel and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament at the Shrine this Friday. They were all very respectful and asked some smart questions to learn more about our wonderful Saint. In the afternoon we completed our Oreo stacking challenge you can find pictures of the kids stacking their Oreo towers and there's some videos of them falling down. Thank you so much for sending in the packs of Oreos the kids had a blast doing this experiment!
I can't believe we are already a month into school! The children are doing a fantastic job getting settled into the routines and work load in third grade. We have been having a wonderful time working on our map projects in Social Studies and the kids are very excited to do our Oreo stacking challenge this week in Science. You can stay up to date on the fun things we are doing in school by looking at the photos on our website. For International peace day we folded origami cranes with messages of peace written on them. We were hoping to exchange them with a class in South Africa but that didn't work out, so we are looking for another international class.
This Friday we will be going on our field trip the the St. Katherine Drexel Shrine. We will leave school at 9:30 am and return to school by 12:30 pm for lunch back at school. The children will have time to shop in the gift shop, so they may bring some money to use in the store. If you would like to send money for your child to shop, please put it in an envelope with their name on it. I will hold all of the money and pass it out to the children when it's our turn at the store.
Our first Science test will be next week on the 3 states of Matter and the Water Cycle. The children have filled out study guide/chapter review packets which they have brought home in their folder. They should begin reviewing those guides now to help with review work we will be doing at school. I will be posting a link on google classroom to an online Quizlet to help them study the vocabulary words. A good way to study at home is to review the questions at the end of each lesson and to go over the chapter review.
Thanks again for all of your help and support at home!
Math review space race game, Blue team with the win! We also started our amusement park map project this week. The kids are very excited and have a lot of ideas! This week our class celebrated peace day by making peace cranes to exchange with a school in South Africa. We discussed how to spread peace and love throughout the world and wrote our ideas on our cranes.
We all made it through the first full week of school with flying colors, literally!! We ended the week celebrating Dot Day where we colored a dot and used the iPads to watch them float off the page. This week wasn't all fun and games however, we did lots of work and learning. We investigated some physical properties of matter and learned how to write some very big numbers in math. I know a lot of us are excited to continue learning about maps so we can get started on our own! 3B has been pretty amazing this week filling up their hundred chart with good behavior. Very excited to see what next will bring for us.
