Happy Tuesday 3rd graders! It was another terrific Tuesday in our classroom. We began our day by being "fancy" and greeting each other with a bow or a curtsy. After a quick meeting and a few announcements we got down to business.
For whole group reading, we read Chapter 9, A Walk on the Moon, together in your little readers. This came in handy because for your read to self rotation you had to read Chapter 10, What's It Like in Space?, with your cohort and compare and contrast each chapter. We also discussed having a Space Day next week, since you all seem to be enjoying our Space Unit so much. More info to come on this soon!
Today is Dr. Seuss's birthday and silly socks day, so during story time, Mrs. Day read Dr. Seuss's "Fox in Socks" and then you wrote your own tongue twisters and shared them with the class. Try saying this tongue twister 3 times fast: Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better.
Since it is Tuesday, that means Exploration Place was here for Science! In today's lesson you explored more properties of magnets. Every magnet has a north pole and a south pole. If you have two magnets, their north/south poles are attracted to each other, while the same poles (north/north or south/south) repel from each other. You tested more materials to see if the magnet was attracted to them or not. Who remembers what type of metal magnets are attracted to?
In math with Mrs. Meridith, we continued reviewing time by using clocks, number lines, and a game called "Race to Midnight." For writing with Mrs. Day you worked on your reading/writing choice boards about constellations some more. And in Miss Gurley's group, you finished (or nearly finished) your planet mobile or worked on your planet reports. After finishing up your rotations, it was time to wrap up for the day.
Have a great night! See you all tomorrow!
