Thank You!!!!!!

Today the third grade students received hats, scarves, and mittens that were knitted by several special women. These women spent many hours making these wonderful gifts for my students. We took a picture to show how excited we are to receive our new accessories.

Job Applications

Today the students applied for new jobs. They worked hard to write about their best qualities and why they would be the best person for the job. The students were able to apply for one of Santa's elves, Rudolph, or Santa. Below are the pictures and applications the students created.

Snowmen at Christmas

Today in class we read Snowmen at Christmas. It is a story about what snowmen do at night while everyone is sleeping. After reading, the students wrote their own stories about what their snowmen would do during the night. Then the students made a snowman glyph that displays their likes/dislikes about snow and winter weather. (Their stories are underneath the snowman's stomach.)

Aaron's Hair

We have been studying cause and effect in reading. We read Aaron's Hair and picked out all of the cause and effects that were in the story. Each student put a comb in Aaron's hair for each cause and effect.
