Thank you to everyone, especially our fearless room parents, who made our Halloween party a success! A great time was had by all.
Each of us created a project based on our understanding of our friendship novels. We have shared them with each other via voicethread and would love to share them with you through this slideshow! Enjoy!
Mrs. Downing's son, Garrett, visited our class this morning. He is a writer for the Baltimore Ravens and has his very own super bowl ring! We heard about how he turned his childhood passions for writing and sports into a full time career. We also got to see his ring. It was huge!
Enjoy the slideshow of pictures from our afternoon around the fire with our buddies!
We started our afternoon in the library with a very special visit from Shirck Orthodontics. Since many of us have had or are going to have braces, we found the presentation very informative!
We ended the afternoon with our new themed unit. We began the Cultural Columbus unit by doing some research on the basics of local government. Ask us what we found out!
After looking at the structure and language used in real cookbooks we decided to write a recipe of our own. A recipe for the perfect friend! This project brings our unit on friendship to a close. We are now gearing up for our second theme: Cultural Columbus!
Over the past couple days we have been working to revise, edit, and publish a personal narrative. Today we recorded ourselves reading our work using VoiceThread. We will eventually listen to and comment on our classmates stories. Ask us about the personal narrative we wrote!
Our first long term project has begun! We spent time yesterday planning and collecting materials. Today we started putting our plans into action! Our projects will reflect our thinking about the books we are reading in book group. Some of us are recreating a favorite scene, others are doing research on a famous person, and still others are writing comics about our characters.
3A got a chance to teach the Lower School a Spanish chant this morning at assembly. Ask us about our "Vamos Bananas" cheer and how it felt to be on stage!
This morning we got to meet real life author and illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka. Jarrett is the imagination behind the Punk Farm and Lunch Lady books. We loved hearing about his journey to becoming a published author. We especially enjoyed getting some tips on how to write and draw graphic novels. Some of us even put our skills to the test!
Follow our class as we learn and grow in third grade.
