Field trip

We had a great time on our field trip to Coterie Theater to watch the performance of The Wiz. We ate lunch at Crown Center and got to see their amazing holiday decorations!  Thanks to our parent chaperones which make our field trips  possible!

Matter

Today we did a science investigation to see how matter can change. Matter can have either physical or chemical changes. Heat can also cause matter to change states from a solid to a liquid or from a liquid to a gas.

Scoot!

This week we have been practicing multiplication strategies. Some strategies include repeated addition, skip counting, equal groups, and arrays. Today we reviewed with a game called SCOOT. Students moved from desk to desk as they answered the problems. It's a fun way to review while getting some movement in, too!

My Name is Bilal

Today our Park University student, Ms. Heller, taught a lesson about cultural diversity. Bilal and Ayesha were Muslim students. Bilal was embarrassed of his name, until his teacher gave him a book to read about a famous Muslim with his name. This book also addressed a bullying theme and how Bilal's sister was teased for wearing a head covering. The students were very engaged in making predictions and inferences throughout the story.

Book Clubs

Some of the kids in class decided to form book clubs. The book clubs will read and discuss the same book. They all seemed very excited to choose a book to get started with. 

Halloween!

Look at these third grade cuties!
