Today, every 3rd grade received a free dictionary from the local Kiwanis Club! Be on the lookout for them in your superstar's backpack. Hopefully, they can all find a good place to keep them so they can use them for years to come. The back of each dictionary also provides information about the 50 states, US presidents, the 7 continents and much more!
We worked on finishing up our Eve Bunting author study today. The students were able to come up with some great generalizations about her writing style.
We began a new author study on Steve Jenkins. We are so excited to see how his style differs from Eve Bunting. It was great to be outside today during recess time! There were many exclamations of "Summer is coming!" and "The snow is melting!" Here's hoping we are done with cold /snow days!
Wow! so much has happened since my last blog post! The superstars and I have been busy learning and growing together.
This is a busy week at Elmwood! We kicked off March is Reading Month on Monday with some flashlight partner reading.
It was perfect for our theme: Spotlight on Reading! Snowflake Wars is in full effect! the superstars have already purchased 125 snowflakes and we are tied for 8th place. We are striving to win some scholastic bucks and maybe even the grand prize... a movie party with Mr. Lyman! All proceeds go directly to Elmwood. The battle concludes this Friday.
Elmwood PTO is hosting a Green Eggs and Ham breakfast tomorrow to celebrate reading month. It begins at 7:30 and ends at 8:15. There will be coffee! Hope to see you there!
The superstars have been working on division and are just rocking it! They know 5 different methods for solving division equations and understand which ones are most efficient.
We are finishing up an author study on Eve Bunting. The students have fallen in love with her books! So far we have read: Fly Away Home, December, Wednesday Surprise, A Day's Work and Some Frog. Ask your superstar to tell you about their favorite!
Our Valentine celebration was fabulous! thank you to everyone who donated supplies and helped out at the party. It was truly a day filled with love and kindness! Pictures coming soon.
We have been surviving indoor recess and keeping our minds ready to learn with brain breaks using gonoodle.com We have way too much fun singing and dancing!
Ms. davidson and the superstars
