Even with all the school spirit that was evident in the 3rd grade classroom this week, they still had a lot of learning take place. They thought all the dress up days were awesome, but overall decided Disney Day was the bomb. They continued working with map skills in Social Studies. Figurative language was the talk of the classroom as they learned more about similes, metaphors and onomonopeia. Math involved adding and rounding numbers. Keep up the hard work, 3rd graders!
Winners in the 3rd Grade room for this week are:
Monday: Julie and Aislynn
Tuesday: Ammy and Adyson
Wednesday: Chase and Daley
Thursday: Gage and Jesse
In 2nd grade we are learning about what makes a good citizen. We made a "good citizen" trail mix and put in the ingredients of a good citizen. They include a dash of kindness, a cup of respectfulness, a pinch of honesty, a teaspoon of courage, and a tablespoon of responsibility. We then did a carousel activity. Different scenarios were written on several pieces of chart paper around the classroom. The 2nd graders went around the classroom to each scenario and wrote down how they would handle each scenario as a good citizen. They came up with several great ideas about what good citizens can and should do. These scenarios are hanging outside of our classroom so come check them out! The 2nd graders are also loving the app called "Spelling City." On "Spelling City" they are able to practice their spelling words through fun, interactive games. The 2nd graders were also very excited it was homecoming week. Our poster theme for the homecoming parade is "The Cyclones are Incredible!" (based on "The Incredibles" the movie)
2nd Grade Winners are: Monday winners – Lenora and Keaton
Tuesday - Isaak and Addisyn
Wednesday winners – Matt and Carter
Thursday Winners - Ava , Addy , and

They had a great time imagining what they would see and experience. This was the first piece of writing this year that they wrote a rough draft, proofread and edited, and then wrote a final draft. There are a lot of steps for improving our writing! *In science, photosynthesis is an idea that was focused on. They learned how plants need water, sunlight, carbon dioxide, and nutrients from the soil to make their own sugar & give off oxygen. The 4th graders are getting ready for their Chapter 3 test next Thursday!! *In Nebraska history, they have been learning about the natural resources in our state. Did you know that Nebraska is divided into 2 main regions?-- the Till Plains and the Great Plains (where we live!)! They discovered some similarities and differences in those regions. The 4th graders are preparing for the test over Chapter 3 next Wednesday!! *In math, the 4th graders just finished a chapter on division meanings and facts. 75% of the class gotan A or a B on the test!!
