Depth and Complexity
Posted on February 15, 2019
This week, we learned about depth and complexity icons and how to use them in different subjects. The students were SO engaged and loved diving deeper into our article about Citizenship that we read in our Studies Weekly for social studies. I am so excited to be implementing these icons into learning! :) It is a fantastic way to get students to think deeper about the text and really use their critical thinking skills. 
See you tomorrow!

Dino Race
Posted on January 25, 2019
We have been learning all about dinosaurs & fossils in our science unit. This week, we learned about the distance and speed a dinosaur runs and tested our speed and stride length against that of a dinosaur close to our size (his name was Cee-Lo!). 3 runners were picked to test their stride length and one student was picked to mark and measure the distance. The students even had me test out my stride length! Luckily, all of us would be able to outrun Cee-Lo! :) The students had a blast cheering on their classmates. 
Secret Life of Anakin
Posted on December 8, 2018

Our book that we worked on in November came in this week! "The Secret Life of Anakin" is a story that talks about the secret life of our sweet anteater mascot! If your child bought a copy of the book, check it out! If not, we have a copy in our classroom! :) It is a wonderful read. So proud of my students for becoming authors and illustrators!

Pure Bliss
Posted on November 28, 2018

Nothing makes me happier than seeing my students take their knowledge of what they have learned in class and applying it outside of the classroom. In this case, I had two of my students choose a book about space in the reading room today and seeing their faces light up warmed my heart. They would say things like, "Mrs. Cox! Look! Its the Apollo 11 mission we learned about!" and "Wow! That's the Eagle! And the control center in Houston!". They couldn't stop smiling while looking through the book and were amazed at how many things they recognized in the book. In our current Language Arts module, we are learning all about space and the Apollo 11 mission. I just had to capture this sweet-as-can-be moment :)

Who knew reading could be so yummy!? I absolutely LOVED getting to read through all of my kiddos book reports! They did a wonderful job on their sandwich book reports and had so much fun working on them! :) Come check out our book report wall outside of the classroom and sneak a peek at some of the awesome book reports my third grade students did!
