During the first semester, I was doing so well updating the blog weekly! I will try my best to get back into that good routine this semester! I would say you haven't missed much, but that would be a lie! Here are a few things that have been going on since we returned to school!
MIND Time - The students wrote New Year's Resolutions and created an art project. They are really cool :) If you are in the building, make sure to come up the hall and check them out! The students also worked on fantasy Readers Theater plays and performed them last week! Their voices were amazing!
RED Reading - These kiddos have been busy reading and working their way through Mr. Popper's Penguins! I think most of them are enjoying the story! We have had various mini lessons on skills and strategies to help us become better readers!
BLUE Reading - Most of these kiddos are reading and workign their way through Junie B. Jones. They are becoming independent readers using skills and strategies we have worked on in mini lessons.
WRITING - We are finishing up the Six Traits of Writing, and the students are implementing many of the ideas presented in the mini lessons. Their writing is really coming to life...WAHOO!
All in all, it has been a great return for the third grade at Cravens Elementary School!!!
