Happy Thursday 3rd Graders! During today’s morning meeting, we greeted each other with a “Selfie Salutation” and you shared what you would do if you were lost in the woods at night. Then we played “James Says” and read the blog.
Once we finished morning meeting, we continued reading, The Wind in the Willows. Today’s chapter took place in the cold and snowy winter. The perspective of the story changed when Mole is lost in the Wild Wood and Rat goes looking for him. Rat searches the scary and dark woods and finds Mole in a tree. How did Rat and Mole find Mr. Badgers door?
Next, we went to our 3 reading rotations. In Mrs. Day’s group, you worked with partners to write an alternate ending to today’s read aloud. Each group had a writer, a thinker, and an illustrator. You had to imagine the story took place in the summer and how that would have changed what happened. We can’t wait to hear your finished stories! During Mrs. Meridith’s group, you practiced using spelling patterns to read and write words with the long vowel sounds. With Miss Gurley or Miss Malorie you read the short story about Sir Gus and answered questions
In the afternoon, after specials, we started our 3 math rotations. You had a lesson with Mrs. Meridith or Mrs. Day to learn about the meaning of the unknown size of the group in division. You did fact fluency practice with Miss Gurley and Miss Malorie and had Reflex time on your own. We also practiced transitioning between rotations by listening to our 2's multiplication song. You were all able to clean up and get back to your seats before the song was over, way to go!
At the end of the day we played a speedy round of Heads Up 7-Up and then it was time to go home.
Have a great night, see you all tomorrow!
