Wow, 200 AR points! These girls love to read.
What a fun two day!! We read "Balloons over Broadway" and how the big balloons made it into the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade. We decorated our balloon and then walked around the school to see all the creative balloons. We finished our week with a "Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving" and enjoyed the same "thanksgiving dinner" that consisted of Jelly beans, popcorn, pretzels, toast, and ice cream sundaes! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Proud of Audrey for passing her subtraction facts!
Birthday twins of the week!
We ended our day in Mrs. Jacquinot's room with a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! Our snacks consisted of popcorn, pretzels, jelly beans, toast and sundaes with toppings! Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday!
The students in Mrs. Jacquinot's class had fun learning about Balloons Across Broadway! I'm hoping they all get up Thanksgiving Day and watch the Macy's Day Parade!
Students at Garfield read the book "Balloons Over Broadway," the story of the marionette maker who helped start the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Students then decorated their own balloons and put them on display in the halls for everyone to parade past and see.
We have been learning about the Balloons over Broadway for the Thanksgiving Parade in New York, so we created our own balloon Parade here at Garfield.
A little friendly rivalry in Mrs. Tierney's class led to a discussion of reasons why someone may choose a favorite team to support. We talked about proximity, teams' stats and other factors that lead to people choosing a favorite team.
Congrats to Zoey and Evelyn. They both have passed all their Math Study Island topics.
The winners of the great Turkey Hunt at Garfield! Each adult that found a turkey received a $10 gift card.
Mrs. Strode's class used skittles to create their own bar graphs to wrap up our graph unit in math.
Such a fun home Thanksgiving activity! These students in Mrs. Jacquinot's class did a great job disguising their turkeys! Thank you Mr. Medina for the idea!
Mrs. Jacquinot and Mr. Medina partnered their students together to work on math problems. These mathematicians had a blast working on double digit addition with 3 and 4 addends.
Thanks to this very helpful Viking. She offered to help Mr. Medina's class assemble their elves. Thank you Charleigh for all your help!!
Third grade students are practicing their test taking strategies and earning strategy bucks while they are using their strategies! Mrs. Waun's students were able to cash in their bucks this afternoon. Thank you PTO for sponsoring our store!!
Mrs.Waun's class ended their chapter book, Chocolate Fever, by having a chocolate fever Friday.
After learning about voting, the importance of voting, requirements of registering to vote, Garfield third grade students performed their "civic duty" Friday, filling out ballots, and casting their vote for one of three candy candidates listed on the Candy Election ballots.
