Miss. Luburgh's 3rd grade class
Let's get started!
Welcome to the class!
Topics to be covered throughout the year!
We will cover several different topics!
The students will have journal entries to complete. Throughout the year the students will be asked to write about field trips, readings, and much more. The students will at least have one journal entry a week. Students will also be in reading groups. Throughout the year these groups will change. I want the students to work with different people throughout the year.
We will be working with several different formulas throughout the year. The students will have a student centered project in the middle of the year. The students will have to use the perimeter and area formula to create their own garden. This project also has English, Science and Social Studies topics integrated in it.
The students will have a lot of hands on experiments. I will bring in several different objects for the students to explore. I really think that hands on activities are more engaging! We will have a large unit over the different layers of ground and we will have a large unit on plants.
The students will have one presentation over their favorite inventor. In class we will talk about several different inventors through books and the internet. The students will pick an inventor, and then he/she will present the inventor they chose to the rest of the class. We will also research about different presidents, astronauts, and more!
