Just another reason 3rd grade rocks!
I asked these kids what they were building. Their answer “angry birds”. Pop culture has officially landed in kinder!
sounds interesting, right?! I had the good fortune to see exactly this in action in a 5th grade classroom. A real dose of real math in the real world.
Do you want to learn about states of matter, mixtures, and solutions? Make rice krispy treats. I know a 4th grade class that is SO happy their teacher decided to teach these topics this way. Delicious!
What do ants, bees, and the goldrush have in common? They were all sources of conversation this morning in a classroom reading non fiction. It’s amazing how fascinating a non fiction can be, particularly if you are used to reading books that focus on the fantastic and imagination. Are you curious how ants greet each other? Do you know what panning is? I know 2nd grade class that could answer those questions for you.
Being off campus for two days in a row reminded me of how much we miss when we aren’t at school. Our minds usually go straight to the students when we talk about missing out when you aren’t at school, but the same goes for teachers. It is nice to be back ‘home’ today among the students and teachers at Condit.
