This week, Third Graders loved Morning Meeting! It is an amazing way to start our mornings and we learn something new about each other every day! During Morning Meeting, we begin by sharing a welcome greeting, sharing thoughts and ideas either whole group or in pairs, followed by an activity and we close our meeting by reading a group message. This week, we practiced our “Did You Know?” greeting to learn and share about healthy snack and lunch items . Creative Third Graders enjoyed stretching their imaginations with a Morning Meeting activity called, “This Looks Like a Marker”. Another favorite class activity from this week was “Just Like Me”. In this activity students were able to discover new and interesting things that they have in common with classmates. Ask your Third Grader which activity and greeting they enjoyed the most during Morning Meeting this week!
Third graders came back to school so very excited to read!We explored the classroom library and bookshop. Students were ready to dive into our reading routines.We reviewed how we should look and sound during Sustained Silent Reading. Third Grade scholars read a variety of texts as we explored our classroom library. I look forward to reading a variety of literature this year with these avid readers!
Third Graders spent time getting to know our class pet through nonfiction texts this week. “Jackaroo” is a female bearded dragon. Third Graders delighted in writing facts, wonders, and fan mail to “Jackaroo”. Stay tuned to learn more about our unique class pet.
