This past week we have been winding down in 3rd grade. In math we are “stepping up to 4th grade”, working on a few concepts they will see next year. We are diligently working to complete our animal books by the end of next week!
We had so much fun at the John Ball Zoo trip. Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us, and especially to Mrs. Ryan, Mr. Fogel, Mrs. TerMolen, and Mrs. Minnaar for chaperoning. The boys and girls did a great job presenting!
Earlier this week we also completed a math escape challenge involving swashbuckling pirates! Groups had to solve the problems in order to escape their capture from the pirates.
We also took part in another Break Out Box Challenge to extend our science unit. Students had to work together finding and solving clues about sea turtles to unlock the box. The goal was to try and open the box within a certain time to save the sea turtle eggs that had been stolen!
This week was filled with teamwork and communication!
I cannot believe we have just 1 week of school left!
