Guess Who Biography Projects



We have really enjoyed the biography study during our nonfiction unit in reader's workshop. To conclude our unit, the kids picked their favorite person to research and then they produced a biography project with a partner or group of their choice. They combined several of their favorite apps for the technology portion of the project and then created an iMovie. I will post the projects as they complete them!

Book Creator Creations!


Snow days and delays have made the month of January go by pretty fast! We have still managed to learn so much and have some fun with our Nonfiction Unit in Reader's and Writer's Workshop. Our 3rd graders have been developing the necessary skills for reading nonfiction. They have been focusing on finding the main idea and details. This was very helpful as they did research about a favorite topic in order to write their own book. We used Book Creator on our Chromebooks for this book project. Here are the links to their books! They did a wonderful job!

Mystery Movies


Our Mystery Unit was a big success! My mystery readers have learned to recognize what the mystery is and who the crime solver will be. They also enjoyed trying to solve the mystery before the detective! They worked as co-detectives to make predictions and figure out motives and red herrings. I believe some of them love a good mystery as much as I do now! To conclude the unit they used some of their favorite apps and smashed them together into iMovie to create a book review of their favorite mystery. Here are the links!

We're Learning and Growing Inside and Out!



This week was our last week with our 3rd Grade Garden Program. We have enjoyed working with Ms. Vinson and Ms. Davis each week and we are sad to see them go! They have taught us so much about planting, growing and caring for our gardens. We had a very bountiful crop of kale, spinach, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, beets and radishes! On Halloween we harvested our veggies and made delicious salads during our Harvest Celebration. Please enjoy the google slide presentations that the students made about all they learned!

Readers are Thinkers

This week in Reader's Workshop, we practiced putting ourselves in the character's shoes and we also shared our thoughts and favorite passages with our reading partners. We used PicCollage along with Flipgrid  for this. It worked well and was a perfect way to merge our reading and tech lives!
