End of year celebration

On June 3rd we will be having an end of year celebration. The whole third grade will be hosting a pizza party for the kids. They will get 2 slices of Little Ceasar's pizza, a side (like chips), and a treat. The kids will need to bring in a drink and any other food they may need if this isn't enough. The cost of the meal is $2.00. Please have this to me by May 26th.

Weekly News

This week was an exciting week with our field trip. The field trip was a great time even in the rain. Thank you to Mrs. Dassie and Mrs. Ferrara for coming with and all the pictures!

This week we read a story that combined two cultures and how the cultures are represented through food. We also did two writing prompts with the story. The students are doing a great job with finding evidence to support their answers. We are also getting ready to test our robots. The students started adding modifications for the save. They are very creative!

Art

In art this week we did our clay owls. In class Ms.Davis showed us how to do it. First you take a ball of clay and flatten in out. Next, you use a tracer and cut it out into a oval shape. After that, you take your finger and at the top of the owl you push it down and then shape your ears.

Next you scratch the eyes and beak. Finally, you use your stick and make fun decorations on it! All of them looked so awesome and pretty when we done! Ms.Davis next has to put them in the kiln and “fire them” so we can paint them probably next week! Art was really exciting this week especially because we were doing clay! By: Ashley

Music News from Mrs. Crowe

If you hear strains of "Fifty Nifty United States" around your house this week it's because we worked on memorizing the song in music class! We particularly focused on correcting some of the things our friends have taught us when they sing it on the bus (contrary to popular belief, "Banana" is not a state.) :) Next week we will be taking our last singing test of the year and preparing for our Instruments of the Orchestra test! There are resources on Mrs. Crowe's Haiku page for students who want to prepare for the instrument test.
