Our class has recently been learning about bats since our visit to the cavern. Yesterday we got to be a part of a video conference on bats where we got even more information as well as got to see live bats!
What is one interesting fact you learned from our video conference on bats? (Complete sentences and best grammar and punctuation)
During Children's Book week we had several fun things planned for our class thanks to our awesome librarian, Mrs. G! First classes got to try and match up each teacher with thier favorite children's book. I'm pretty sure no one guessed mine, The Monster at the End of This Book! Next we had the opportunity to have a 6th grade English class come read to our students and they read back to them. What a great experience for our third graders!
Finally our whole school attended a "Read-In" where we got to read independently, listen to excerpts of a book, and watch our silly staff and administrators act out "The Day the Crayons Quit", which they absolutely loved!
We also got to watch a middle school class act out a few children's books for us. We were very impressed by thier acting and reading!
Our third grade hasn't gone on a field trip for 4 or 5 years so this year was especially exciting for students and teachers! This week we went to Inner Space Cavern and we all had a great time! Here are a few pictures from our adventure!
As you can see we were all wore out by the end of the day but had a blast and learned a ton!
What's one interesting thing you learned on our trip?
We absolutely loved our video conference with the Texas Wildlife Assictioan covering Urban Bobcats. This conference was definitely the best one we have been involved with and the students enjoyed all the new information they learned, as well as getting to see a live bobcat!
What was one interesting fact you learned about bobcats after our video conference?
Our school was visited by a whole group from the USDA to look at our cafeteria system and how our school garden is used in our food daily. Pretty neat since they only came to two schools total in Texas! Our student gardeners take pride in our school garden. Here are a few pictures.
Lately we have been working on different types of problem solving. Today we worked in groups to problem solve a math selection together, present it to the class, and describe how they figured it out. We definitely got a brain work out today! A healthy brain is a happy brain!
Yesterday we did our first videoconference titled Musical Storytelling, Growing Up to Become President Bush: Character Counts. We really enjoyed watching presenter and singer Bobbee Pennington share songs, stories, and an informational book about President Bush.
This week we made Shape Monsters to review our geometry terms and 2D shapes. Our class really enjoyed going step by step to see how to make thier unique monster depending on certain traits they have. After making our monsters we wrote all about them during our writing time. We definitely have some sneaky, cute monsters that like to eat. Some even speak another language! Here's some pictures of our finished products.
