We had asked the third grade teacher Ms.Morelli the following questions about the happenings in grade 3.
How has the school year been so far?
So far the school year has been wonderful in third grade. Once again, I am blessed with fabulous students and families that really help to make out community the best it can be. We have a lot of fun planned for Trimester three.
Are there any projects coming up?
Many students are excited for our “Who Was Project”. Each student has a month to read a “Who Was” biography book, create a costume and presentation as that person. All grades are then invited to walk through our living museum. Last year the project was a huge hit because students get to choose from over 100 people. One student chose to be Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel!
What have the students been learning in math?
We will be focusing on Math until the last days of school. For the remaining of the year, we will focus on measurements, geometry, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals.
What have the students been learning in Science?
I am so excited to start our final science unit “Life Science”. This will focus on plants and animals. In May, we will have a visitor come to our class bringing an incubator. For about a month, we will observe these chicks hatch and grow. In June, we will take a field trip to Casey Farm in South Kingstown to release the chickens, and learn about both marine and mammal life.
Thank you Ms. Morelli for answering our questions.We hope you have a good rest of the school year and achieve all your goals before the end of the year. Have a good summer.
