All 3rd Grade students will participate in an Egg Drop Challenge next Tuesday, June 5th!
Planning will begin today in their assigned teams and students will be responsible for bringing in supplies to create their design. (Scissors, glue, tape, and paper will be provided to each team.) Nothing may be created at home - the entire design process must occur at school in order to have a fair competition.
Students are encouraged to think creatively and use recycled materials available to them. This activity should not require parents to go shopping.
We will be BUILDING ON FRIDAY! So students need to searchtheir recycling bins, garage, craft closets, etc. and bring in theirbuilding supplies on Friday.
Today we used Pharrell Williams's "Happy" music video to prepare for our Reading SOL. We practiced questions such as these:
- What reference resource would you use to find a synonym of "happy"? (Thesaurus)
- What's the author's purpose of this song? (Entertainment and Persuade)
- What suffix could you add to "truth" to make it mean "full of truth"? (Truthful)
Ask your child what they learned today!
