Spring Break !!


Continuing with our poetry unit, students spent the week building their poetry portfolios. Third Graders continued to discuss poetry tools like repetition, rhythm, and alliteration and spent the week applying it to their writing. Some began composing poems based on their newly discovered tools, while others have taken the chance to revise past works. We are so impressed and enthralled by our poetic Third Grade class! 


This week in science students went a little deeper looking at seeds. Scholars observed the seeds we planted as a class and noticed that the seeds were going through germination. Scholars were ecstatic to learn that when water makes it through the seed coat, the embryo and cotyledons soak the water up and it grows. We are so excited to see what happens next!


This week in math our scholars focused on locating unit fractions on the number line. Students were able to partition the intervals 0 to 1. Scholars were then able to locate non-unit fractions and unit fractions on the number line. Third Graders are moving on to learning fractions located at whole numbers. Our mathematicians are soaring in this fraction unit.
