Outstanding October!

It has been a busy month here in Room 209!

The third grade teachers love to show our spirit! Some days we plan on dressing alike, some days it just happens!

Officer Schipelliti came in to talk about bus safety and how to act on a school bus and what to do in case of an emergency.



We met up again with our Kindergarten Buddies to help them learn some cooperative games to play during indoor recess:
Mancala


Uno:


Chess:


We were also one of the first grade levels to fill up our flag in the cafeteria because we earned so many Starbucks! Our reward was being able to decorate our lockers! Check them out!






In math, we are finishing up learning our multiplication facts from 0-10. We learned a new game call Multiplication Squares to help us practice our facts!






In Science we learned about Magnets and what in our classroom was magnetic and what was not. We also learned about the poles of a magnet and how we use magnets every day.

In Social Studies, we are busy learning about the Wampanoag Native Americans and the Pilgrims in preparation for our field trip to Plimouth Plantation. Mrs. Weldon put together a great activity for us to use the interactive Plimouth Plantation Website to learn more about them.




We got together with Mrs. Kip's class and Mrs. Moussa and Mrs. Guttenplan came in to teach us about Diwali and the traditions that go along with Diwali. We made connections with some of our own celebrations and how they are similar and different.


Mrs. Kip also showed us a fun Brainpop on Halloween, where we learned where the holiday came from. Did you know that it originated in Ireland? I didn't know that!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween. Please refrain from sending in candy as a snack. A nutritious snack is more helpful for your child's learning than candy. 

November is tomorrow! Remember no school on November 8th (Election Day), 10th (Teacher Professional Development), and 11th (Veterans' Day).

We will be having a Magnetism Test on Thursday, October, 27th. The study guide went home today (Monday, October 24th) and the students have been having fun doing experiments with magnets. Reviewing the sheet nightly for the next few nights is encouraged.

Thank you!

Kindergarten Buddies!

Today, Room 209 had the opportunity to go down to Mrs. Percoskie's Kindergarten Class to meet our Kindergarten Buddies! Both classes were very engaged in eating snack and interviewing our new friends! Some of us also got to read books to our buddy! We are looking forward to doing this a few times a month during the school year!

September!


September had been a busy month! The students are settling into their routines and doing a fantastic job following Third Grade Expectations. 

Today, we started our Time Lines for Third Grade. We meet as a class to brainstorm what we thought was exciting, new, or fun for us in the month of September. Above are the things we came up with. The students are really enjoying our new math program and switching for math class, as well as the new math apps that they get to do in 3rd Grade.
