Working hard on writing our Personal Narratives
The students worked on generating ideas for a personal narrative using post it notes. Then we went through the steps by using our classmates to help us to add details. The students worked very hard on this writing!

The arrival of the anoles 2012!
Investigating Light! For part of our Science Unit on Light we did some investigation with Light. We had rainbows and lights all over the place! I admit, these are not the best pictures but we had SO much fun!!!
Instrument Project! We studied Sound in Science...each student then created either a wind, percussion, or stringed instrument.
Science! Model of Earth's layers and VOLCANOES!
Jamestown Journals Phase Two...
Each year the Kiwanis Club gives dictionaries to all third graders in Bellevue! The third graders love this surprise!
Jamestown Journals (Phase one)
Fontenelle Forest Field Trip!
We took a trip to the local forest as a way of wrapping up our Science Unit on Food Webs and Chains.
Dissecting an owl pellet!
The students worked in groups to dissect the 'mystery pellets.' The mystery pellet is all the stuff that an owl can not digest after eating a rodent. So the students found things like bones, including a skull, fur, and some sticks. They loved this activity! And don't worry the pellets were sterilized before the kids touched them...plus we washed and sanitized our hands! :)
Social Studies: Map Skills
We studied maps for our first Social Studies E.O. The students created compass roses in many ways.
We have been studying commands, statements, and exclamations. The students created jumbo punctuation marks to help them remember to add the correct punctuation to their sentences. The jumbo punctuation marks are on display in the Third grade hallways and in our classroom.
The idea of Bucket Fillers is to be kind to others or to 'fill their buckets.' When your "bucket" is full you feel good...when you fill others' "buckets" you feel good too. The students each made their own buckets. We try to fill each others buckets often.
