Field Trip to the Hagley Museum

3D went to the Hagley Museum in Delaware. We started at the Visitor Center and walked to the Power Plant (see my map below). Once we arrived at the Power Plant, we learned how an assembly line worked. As a team, we had to create stamps and labels for barrels of gunpowder. Some people were foreman or managers, some were runners, and some stamped the labels. When everyone was done, the instructors told us what positions would have been paid the most. Next, we had lunch; we had a delicious time there. When we were done lunch, we walked to the Gibbons House. Each group learned more about life many years ago. We learned how to get water from a well, how to do laundry, how to cook and wash dishes, and what types of clothes men and women wore. Life was much harder since there was no running water in the house. We also were taught lessons in an old school house!

Read Aloud: Howliday Inn (Bunnicula Series)

As my class and I were writing our homework down in our agenda, Mrs. Dugan said, "time for the Howliday Inn!" Everyone rushed to the carpet and sat down quickly. Mrs. Dugan started to read right away. Word after word, sentence after sentence, we were starting to get the chills; what a mystery and what suspense! I was the happiest and saddest girl in the world. I was happy because I wanted to know what happened to Chester and Harold. But I was sad because we were finishing the book today. I am not sad anymore because we have all the characters sitting in our classroom. Students brought in dog and cat stuffed animals that look just like the main characters in the book. I just hope we can read The Celery Stalks at Midnight before the end of the year.

Read Aloud: Winn Dixie

In 3D, we are reading Because of Winn Dixie. Winn Dixie is a dog who was abandoned and wandered into a grocery store. Opal went to the grocery store and saw Winn Dixie. The owner of the store was really mad that a dog was in his store so Opal rescued Winn Dixie. Opal begged the preacher, her dad, to let her keep Winn Dixie. The preacher did not like seeing anyone hurt or sad, so he said yes. Winn Dixie had many bald spots, cuts, and was smelly. Also Opal's mom left when she was little. Opal asked the preacher to tell her 10 things about her mom.

3D is really happy to be reading this book. This story has great text and details. We are also blogging with Mrs. Tomashek's 3rd grade class at Jennings; we are reading and discussing this novel together. It's like we have reading pen pals!

Museum Walk in Social Studies

In Social Studies, we are learning about the branches of government and citizenship. To help us learn more about it, Mrs. Dugan set up this cool activity called Museum Walk. This is a cooperative learning activity and it helps students learned better. In a Museum Walk, Mrs. Dugan wrote three questions on the board for students to answer. The students would answer the questions by writing response and ideas on sticky notes and sticking them on the board. At the end of the Museum Walk, Mrs. Dugan read all of our answers. We took notes on what other students wrote.
