Goodbye Summer Hello School

Summer was seriously a big splash of fun for me but I am ready to see my new favorite second graders! I've enjoyed researching new and creative ideas for the year and our room is just about ready! After many years of teaching I still get nervous and excited! There is no better job than teaching!

A Final Pic

It's hard to believe a new school year is about to begin. I began looking at my picture files and getting them ready for the new year when I saw this favorite one. It was a beautiful day for Field Day and a lot of fun! I wish my favorite third grade students a wonderful new school year!

The students were learning about biographies. They chose a famous person they wanted to research. They had to write about their life in first person narrative so they could "become" that person for our wax museum. They created a museum display with a book, artifact, and covered cereal box with information about their character. When our museum opened visitors had to press and "on" button to make us come to life and share our story.

We had a wonderful opportunity to learn about the weather from a real meteorologist! Mary Kay Kleist came to our school to tell us how she became a meteorologist. We went outside to see the weather lab and be a part of a live broadcast.

Pajama Party

Who has the best students in the world? ME! We got to enjoy a fun day because we have been working so hard. The students voted for a pajama party with lots of board games. I learned a lot of new games and found some of my childhood favorites are favorites of my students! It was a great time in room 3!

Lights, Camera, Action

Our class has become so talented when performing our reader theater plays that we are able to practice and perform one in the same day! Our group in the pictures did a fractured fairy tale version of Kind Midas. In this play everything the queen touches turns to chocolate! The voices and expressions of our performers kept us giggling and engaged! BRAVO!

What Is Air?

Soon we will be meteorologists in room 3 but first we have a lot to learn about air. Through many experiments and observations we have learned that air is a powerful force that can move things. We saw how air can create air resistance and compresses with pressure. Although we cannot see air, we know it makes up wind and changes the weather.
