Indian Run News 001

May 7, 2016

We have had a wonderful past 2 weeks in room 001!

We were very busy with Student Led Conferences, Books and Breakfast, Ohio's AIR Math testing, collaborating with Ms. Wenning's 3rd grade class, and beginning our 'Wonder Workshop'. I am so proud of how hard they have been working!

Student Led Conferences

Our Student Led Conferences were a success! Thank you to all of the parents who were able to join us to celebrate each students success this year in 3rd grade. For those who were unable to make it, students brought home all of their work, and I hope they were able to share with you as well!

Books and Breakfast

We had a great time discussing the book, Sisters, written by Raina Telgemeier!

Our next Books and Breakfast will be on Friday, May 27th! We will be discussing the book, Ranger in Time.

Number Talks with Ms. Wenning's Class

We have been collaborating with Ms. Wenning's 3rd grade class during math to develop our mathematical thinking skills during our number talks!

Wonder Workshop

Have you heard your students starting to talk about Wonder Workshop at home? I hope so! We are joining the other 3rd grade classrooms on this exploration adventure that encourages students to research something that they are passionate about or something they have always wanted to learn about. After spending time creating, innovating, asking questions, collaborating, and persevering while completing these projects, students will be given the opportunity to present their projects!

Goals of this project:
  • To give students authentic, real world opportunities to refine the skills they are learning in 3rd grade
  • To promote, support, and model creative, innovative thinking
  • To allow students an opportunity to develop skill sets that are valuable in any learning situations
  • To provide an opportunity for students to share their passion projects with others and use the speaking and listening skills we have been working on.

Look through the gallery of pictures below to see what we have begun working on so far!
