Pizza Book Reports

Our third graders have been cooking…cooking up delicious book reports!

We recently learned about the different parts of a book-the setting, problem, solution, summary, and characters. After reading chapter books, the students decorated pizza boxes and made pizzas with each slice representing a different topic. We then celebrated their hard work with a pizza party. During the pizza party, we walked around the room and looked at all of the book reports. Some even made a list of books they want to read over summer.

Afterwards, we ate pizza to commemorate their hard work! We even had a cookie cake that looked like a pizza! It was a delicious and fun way to learn about and showcase books!

All students will be finishing Ozobot lessons! The students will then be recapping on what we have learned thus far this year. We will be freshening up our typing, our tech terms, and our technology devices.

“Everyday is a new opportunity.  You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again.  That’s the way life is, with a new game everyday and that’s the way baseball is.” – Bob Feller

Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month, so the students were divided into groups, given a famous woman to study, and then they created a poster with pictures and information about their famous woman.  Here are some pictures of the process and final projects:

Fun with Science

After completing our unit on matter, the students were put into groups to make a bridge.  The lesson was showing how we combine matter to make many things in our world.  Each group was given the task to make a bridge that could successfully hold the weight of a Matchbox car.  It was neat seeing the different ideas they came up with.

Math Fun with Coordinate Graphs and Area

After learning about coordinate graphs in math, we made a life-size graph on our classroom floor.  The students had lots of fun placing objects on the coordinate graph and even more fun placing themselves on the graph.  We rolled dice to come up with the coordinates, and then each student had to stand on that point.

Then we learned about area.  Each student created a flower for our “Area Garden” and then calculated the area of their completed picture.
