Third Grade Drama Fun:)

GR 3 September 20, 2019

Reading Partners

Reading is most fun when it is shared! Third Graders enjoyed being able to share their reading with reading partners this week. Reading partners are a great way to think about and discuss books even further than we would when reading alone. Students are able to share observations, extend their thinking, and enjoy the funny parts of the story with a friend. 


Third Graders were excited to do drama this week! Each year we have actors from Charleston Stage come to our school to work on presentation and dramatic skills. During these classes, students use their bodies, voices, and imaginations to create different scenes. Third Grade actors and actresses really enjoy learning and playing engaging theater games. By practicing these theatrical skills, students are able to gain confidence when performing in front of an audience of friends and family.


Third Graders were thrilled to get their iPads this week! At The Cooper School, students receive their own personal iPad in Third Grade that they will keep through Fifth Grade. When they graduate, they get to take the iPad with them. At The Cooper School, iPads are used for research and presentation during our Project Based Learning units.   Each child/family is asked to sign an iPad contract stating that these iPads will be used for educational purposes and not for games. Please make sure that your child has returned this contract to school!
