Thank you to Ms. Moffat and Mrs. Kogut for their fantastic Art’s Alive presentation on sculpture. The students (and their 1st grade buddies) learned about balance, motion, gravity and kinetics as well as a variety of sculptors who use these elements to create their own works. Check out these hard-working students and some of their creations.

Every week, on Tuesday, our class visits Mrs. Ansley and the Mullen-Hall computer lab. This is a great way for us to get in some technology time that supplements all of the curriculum that we cover in our classroom. We spend time doing everything from practicing phonics and spelling to playing math games and taking Reading Street assessments. (Did you receive your notice explaining how you can visit Reading Street online at home?) We also watch curriculum related videos on the state of the art Smart Board to enhance our understanding of current topics of study. We have watched instructional videos about the American Revolution, Food Chains and Webs, the Solar System and even volcanoes. While we are there we also practice our keyboarding (with the program Type To Learn) and the fabulous Mrs. Ansley teaches us technology skills such as how to properly open and close programs, follow file paths and much more! Some of the sites we visit in the computer lab have been listed under our blogroll. Check them out!
Students busy at work in the computer lab!
On St. Patrick’s Day, the Third Grade Team was treated to some wonderful Irish Fiddle music presented by Mrs. Nicole Engstrom and her fiddle students that included some of our very own Mullen-Hall third (and first) graders. Well done!
Today in art class with Mrs. Finn, our class earned 5 Goody Stones (out of a possible 4!) for following directions, appropriate behavior, teamwork, listening well, hard work, and an amazing clean-up! Well done girls and boys! Their reward…extra recess!
