Today we had our first "Maker Spaces" session. We learned that it's all about the 6 C's: collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, citizenship, communication, and character. First we read the book, Iggy Peck, Architect and then we got to build, build, build anything we wanted! There were all kinds of materials that we could use, and the best part was there weren't any rules! Check out some of our creations (see the Instagram tab on the right). We had so much fun that we're thinking of setting up our own "Maker Spaces" station in our classroom!

Sincerely,

Last week was another amazing week at school. Our teacher is awesome! In math, she has been showing us how to play Yahtzee. Afterwards, we discuss what mental math strategies we used to add up our totals. Some of the other things we've been up to are: grade 3's started swimming lessons, we had a couple of fire drills with the new alarm system (boy is it LOUD), and we had bus ridership with Bus Driver Bob. He does this with us twice a year every year, so most of us are pros at this now, but it's still a good review! We had our second library period. Most of us brought back all of our books so Mrs. Conci is letting us take out 3 books now. Oh, and the grade 4's had their first Cross Country race. The second race is this week. We also continued to work on our personal goals for this year and in Science, Mrs. Adamson brought in marshmallows and spaghetti noodles so that we could build structures. Check out the pictures on Instagram. Here's to another great week ahead!!

Greetings Families! Welcome to Room 3! This week has been awesome and busy! We have had lots of fun learning about each other and presenting our portfolio bags. We had our first library period and we reviewed how to pick a "good fit" book using the "I PICK" acronym. We've been learning about how our classroom works and what our jobs are so that everything runs smoothly throughout our day. We even painted our feet for a bulletin board (stay tuned for a photo)! When Mrs. Orloff "catches" us helping each other or working well together she gives us a scoop or 2 of popcorn to put in Popcorn Patti. When she is filled to the top...you guessed it, a popcorn party! Room 3 is a great place to be. We can't wait for more learning and fun next week!

Sincerely,

Students of Room 3
