Then we went to the Library. There was a contest for which class was the most responsible, respectful, and safe. Both third grades tied, but our name was drawn for the winner. Soooo, we will be visiting the library again for a movie and popcorn. :)

Today we investigated and explored relationships in math.
How to make 5 triangles from 9 straws...
Sheep ratio to cows...
Making larger shapes from smaller shapes. How many triangles does it take to make a bigger triangle? The trapezoid was trickier for some. The hexagon was the most difficult.
We are writing ending our unit on informational reports. The students chose their topics of interest, found books and used websites to research, took notes, and then created informational reports. They had choice how to provide that information to the class. Some students chose to use a tri-fold poster board format, another wrote a book, some used their Google account to create a slide show.
Madason chose Tigers....
Lilly wrote a book about Labs...
Annette presented information about birds...
After the presentations, the class provided feedback.

We are continuing to learn about communities. This unit focuses on celebrations. The students worked as a group to read the content and create a poster to teach the rest of the class. Tomorrow, they will read the posters to learn the content and complete questions to test for understanding.
