The third grade enjoyed themselves at the Children's Museum on Wednesday. Students were amazed by the process of doing suminagashi. The "wow" factor was when our teacher lifted the paper from the pan of water and the ink design was printed on the bottom. In the Japanese house, students were allowed time to explore and find something similar to their own home and something different. They then divided into three groups, morning, afternoon, and evening to look through boxes of activities associated with those times. Each group presented information to the whole group. Back at school, we did a venn diagram comparing Japanese and western style homes.
This week, students have been creating their slide shows of their independent research in preperation for the culminating event at the end of March. Many are also writing/typing their reports. Each student will have the chance to present their slide show to their classmates.
In math, we are continuing to work on multi-step problems using all four operations with and without bar models. We will complete this chapter before our March break.
In technology , students are creating 3-D kokeshi dolls with Mr. Felix. Once students are done with the programming, the 3-D printer will continue to make them on our spring break.
Students have been creating maps of Japan showing the major regions, or prefectures, and surrounding bodies of water.
Colin Martin would like parents to know that the next Diversity Group Meeting will be on Thursday March 7 from 3:15-4:00 in the Conference Room. Childcare for FA students will be available in the After School Program free of charge during the meeting.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. For all you snow lovers, it looks like we are in for some white, fluffy weather!
