Grandparent's Day!!

This morning we were fortunate to have many grandparents spend the morning with us!  We began by performing our plays for them.  These were the plays we wrote on Monday based on a theme and including a distinct problem and solution.

After that, the students conducted interviews with a grandparent and then created Google slideshow presentations to share their findings.  Although most were unable to finish, due to time constraints, we shared what had been completed prior to lunch.  They were great!  It was clear the students had learned a lot!!!

After lunch we were left with a total of 11 students.  So, together, we created a list of activities from which each student could choose.  These included math sites from the third grade web site, writing a story, poem or letter using the Chromebook or paper, creating a Thanksgiving Powtoon, including facts from the Scholastic slideshow, and reading quietly.

The students worked nicely and appeared to enjoy free time to practice whichever skills they preferred.

Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving weekend!!
