After an extra-long February, 3/4 is looking forward to a fun-filled March. We will continue working on individual student goals, and we will also begin celebrating our “holidays.” A few weeks ago, each student was asked to create and describe an original holiday. We voted on the top 3 most popular ones and will begin to plan how we will celebrate these special days. The winning holidays were “Prank Day,” “Video Game Day/Junk Food Day/Sports Day,” and “Challenge Day/Week.” We are all looking forward to these special days!
During March, a new group of students will be joining Zoe for a weekly art session this month. Zoe began a long-term clay unit towards the end of February that will continue into March. These students will be using kiln-fired clay to learn about slab building skills, glazing chemistry, and decorating techniques. They are hoping to turn these clay creations into flower pots as spring approaches.
Do you know where hot dogs were invented? Or what the word “ample” means? At our daily meeting time, we began a new tradition in February that we will continue through the end of the school year. On “Mappy Mondays,” “Wordy Wednesdays,” and “Fun-Fact Fridays,” students will have a chance to present geography facts, vocabulary words, and interesting facts to our group three times a week.
