What an adventure we have had together! The school year year is over and we survived distance learning. It has been a learning experience for all of us!
The Students in Grade 3 can now send and receive emails, share Google documents, share a Google slideshow, participate in zoom meetings, and research a variety of topics in groups. We all have been immersed in technology and are better off because of it. Grade 3 students really enjoyed the zoom meetings because they got to interact with their peers.
During this time of Social Distancing, Grade 3 students wrote and illustrated their own books. They researched planets and types of rocks and then shared their information on a slideshow. Each student researched a country and compiled the information in a slideshow. They studied different branches of the United States government and learned about responsibilities of a citizen. Grade 3 students studied weather and learned the instruments used. We learned about the rain forest. They were introduced to skills like Linear Measurement, Reading and Interpreting Information on a Graph, Identifying Different Shapes, and Finding Area and Perimeter of a shape.
Parents became supervisors, making sure that their child’s work was completed and submitted on a daily basis. Parents helped teach new skills introduced in lessons. Parents had to do their own jobs, set up a time for children to do their work, and manage a household in the midst of a pandemic. Way to go!
I want to thank all parents. I appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time. Enjoy a well-deserved break. Have a fun and safe summer. See you all in the fall!
Hugs, Mrs. Rowe
