2nd and 3rd grade E-time Update

Ms. Ricciardelli has some 2nd grade students captivated with what she has to share with them about possible plans for the newly formed building and construction group.  They spent a lot of time discussing what they want to learn in this round and brainstorming materials they need.  

These young ladies are learning the basics of weaving.  As one of them said to me, "You have to start with the simple stuff first.  Once you know how to do that, then you can move on to the harder stuff."  They have a plan to sell the bracelets they are making and donate the money to a worthy cause.  Stay tuned!

Did you know that you can create simple animations using Microsoft Power Point?  This 3rd grade student didn't know that either!  What a fun way to tell a story!

Mrs. Cook helps a student select just the right paper for the cover of his book.  Since he was making the book for his mother, he had to find just the right shade of purple since that's her favorite color.  I hope his mom enjoyed the little surprise!

Working hard to create a book for a friend in 3rd grade

This 3rd grade room was quiet when I came in but it was the students' choice.  They are completely absorbed in the task of solving logic puzzles and games with each one increasing in complexity.  Their final goal is to be able to write some of their own to have classmates solve.  I can't wait to see what they come up with!

Quesadillas, anyone?  The 3rd grade cooking group decided to focus on different foods from around the world with last week's spotlight country being Mexico.  Let me tell you.  It smelled wonderful down in B Hall!

The 3rd grade cooking group also spent a little bit of time learning about the countries from which their dishes originated.  They plan to keep a journal of sorts to record what they find out each week.
