3rd Grade Gifted & Talented News
1st Quarter Highlights
We say it every year - but WOW - how time is flying! It is hard to believe we are through our first quarter of the 2013-2014 school year. I have enjoyed getting to know my new third graders and I'm thrilled with their excitement to learn!
As a reminder, your student attends my class for approximately 30 minutes per day as part of their ELA curriculum. Most of our work will be "project based"; however, you will occasionally see a "graded" paper come home. These grades are not included in their classroom grades, but are intended for students to become accustomed to my classroom expectations. When they are fourth graders, they will receive report cards from my class.
Below you will find highlights of our learning thus far. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for sharing your student with me!
Labor Day . . . When I Grow Up
Third Grade Angels
From Amazon.com, "Beautifully illustrated book tells of the historic chapel less than 100 yards from the Twin Towers that miraculously survived on 9-11. Firemen hung their shoes on the fence and raced to help the people in the towers: Oh what gallant men did we lose/Who never came back to get their shoes. The story of terror overcome by courage and bravery that teaches us no one is too small to make a difference."
Students then wrote and illustrated their own "Little Chapel" books. I was so please with how they turned out and I hope you enjoyed them as well. Below you'll find Amy reading her book aloud.
