- Divergent thinking: We used our creativity to write stories about what secret pets might do. I can't wait to hear these stories next week when we share!
- Convergent thinking: We challenged ourselves with a "Directive Detective" puzzle. These are a bit complicated, but really hone those reading and logical thinking skills! We also work on relationships and connections when we interpret the meaning of the quote or phrase.
- Communication: We worked on a new "Weighty Word"-kleptomaniac. The kids are becoming dictionary and thesaurus experts!
Third Grade had a productive day!
We worked on our Audrey Aims unit by gaining more knowledge of Ancient Egypt through watching History Channel: “Howard Carter: Archeology-Ancient Egypt”.
We began a Hands On Equations assessment to check understanding of the concepts learned so far. We'll finish that next week and group the children according to need for review and those ready to move on.
We began our work with Virtues in Action unit. The children sorted various character traits into categories using their own evaluation process. We had an interesting discussion about what the traits are and how they might be valuable in school and later in life.
HW: First in Math
Have a great weekend-Enjoy the sun
My favorite 3rd Grade memories are reading really good books and camping overnight with the Girl Scouts.
