In Reading, we have been learning about idioms. We brainstormed all the idioms we’ve heard and tried to match them with a literal meaning. We know that idioms are phrases that we don’t mean literally, but that they make our writing more interesting. Here are a few of our favorite idioms!

This year, our traditional St. Nick Night Christmas Program looked a little different. We couldn’t miss out on all the community and festivities, so a St. Nick Night IN took place over Zoom. Each family joining from the comfort of their own homes. Teachers led games, read stories aloud, and even taught Christmas Songs in ASL! “He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re AWAKE!”

During Advent, waiting for Jesus to come can be hard! It takes a lot of patience. One way we can spend our time in Advent, is by doing things for others. We can also thank God for the blessings in our lives. Third grade students brainstormed “gifts” of kindness they can share with others during Advent, this season of waiting.

Thursday, December 3rd

In Reading, we have been learning that some words can be looked at on a scale from basic and boring to interesting and extreme. Today we showed a list of synonyms on a scaled level.

We started our Descriptive Writing Unit! In this “Show Not Tell” activity, students were given a feeling to describe: “I am _______. Using the 5 senses, students did their best to describe the feeling – what did it feel, smell, sound, taste, and look like? Then, students drew a picture of that feeling with as much detail as their writing included. Can you guess what these students are feeling?

Our latest Science Unit has been Weather & Climate. Students researched three different zones: Polar, Temperate, and Tropical. Using their knowledge of each climate zone, student picked one climate zone to create a model of. What a great use of household items to build a model!

We have been learning about Weather and Climate in Science for the past couple weeks.

What an outstanding job!

In The Invisible Boy, the main character feels lonely and ignored until he writes a note to a new student and makes a friend. From that point on, he has someone to play with and feels included. We talked about what it feels like, looks like, and sounds like to be included.
