Today, we had our first writing celebration! Students got into groups of 3 and shared their stories. They also gave feedback on each other’s stories, stating one thing that they liked and one thing they think they could work on for next time.
Today, we took the Marshmallow Challenge. Students were given 20 pieces of spaghetti, 3 marshmallows, 1 yard of string, and 1 yard of tape. They were challenged to build the tallest tower. They planned, built, and problem solved with their groups. Take a look at some of our pictures.
Today, we started talking about fixed mindset vs. growth mindset. This year, we are going to work really hard to develop a growth mindset. We watched this video about “The Power of Yet.” We also made a project for the hallway. Take a look at both! Your child should have brought home some information on this today.
Third grade is participating in SOCKTOBER!! We are collecting new socks until November 1. We will be donating them to a local shelter.
Our Student of the Week this week was Emma!!!
Last week we did the Cup Challenge. Groups were given a stack of different size cups and were challenged to build the tallest tower! Two groups built towers that were 39 inches tall. Students had a lot of fun planning, building, problem solving and working together. Take a look at our towers!
