Caught in the act!

I have just added our newest wallwisher to our blog.  This wallwisher will be a place where we can display the acts of kindness that our kids are doing.  I hope you follow along and let us know when you catch our kids doing something great!

Working with Kindergarten Partners


On Friday our 3rd graders met our Kindergarten learning partners.  We shared the book Miss Nelson is Missing with Mrs. Schipull's class.  Then our 3rd graders worked at helping their K partner make a paper airplane.  Getting to test out the airplane was definitely the most exciting part of the project.  The project was really fun and we can't wait to get together again!

Recycled Box Project- The Update

Wallwisher

Our class had a chance to post notes on our wallwisher website.  A wallwisher is a place to post notes or ideas.  Our class worked on posting notes of things that we have learned about each other.  Using wallwisher was a learning experience.  It took patience and sometimes it just wouldn't work.  We ended up working in partners and everyone had a chance to post at least one note.  Our wallwisher website is www.wallwisher.com/wall/pearson3rd.

Our Recycled Box Project

Today our class worked with partners on a project that required us to brainstorm ideas on how to recycle a box into something new.  The kids loved coming up with ideas and working on creating their idea.  I have posted a video of 2 of our students at work.  I am hoping to post their finished creations tomorrow.  The kids will tell you what they made.  Stay tuned....
