Third Grade in Review

Just in time for Christmas, here is what we did back at Thanksgiving time :-)

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We read The Night Before Thanksgiving and then Hailey filled this out about the story.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We read several books about what it would be like to be pilgrim boy or girl.

Hailey made a book about what it would be like to be a pilgrim girl.

Inside her book she wrote about the different things she would have done and drew pictures to go with it.  (Printables from The Razzle Dazzle Classroom.)

I saw a fun idea at Around the Kampire that was a little different than the usual disguise a turkey.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey came up with three good reasons to eat hot dogs on Thanksgiving, instead of turkeys.

Then she made a turkey disguised as a pigeon.

Each person in our family made these cute turkeys that have a little pouch in the front.  Then we wrote reasons we were thankful for each other and put them in the pouches.  It was so nice to see what everyone said about each other.

Turkey Handprint

I realize I am posting this a bit late, but hopefully someone can save the idea for next year.  I made this using Hailey, Hunter, and Harper’s handprints.  It turned out so cute!

Third Grade in Review

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Here are some of things we have been up to.  These activities are almost a month old, I just can’t keep up anymore!

Language Arts:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

 We read my favorite Halloween book Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman and then Hailey did this beginning, middle, and end activity.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We used some activities from the pumpkin unit at The Razzle Dazzle Classroom.  For this activity Hailey pretended that she went to the pumpkin farm and picked out a pumpkin.  When she got it home is grew legs and started walking around.  Hailey wrote a little story and then made a pumpkin.  Harper loves this pumpkin and she smiles at it, laughs at it, and talks to it whenever she sees it hanging on the wall.

History:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We have continued our study of Ancient Egypt.  We followed the directions at Creekside Learning and mummified a Barbie.

It was messy, but fun.

Hailey added some amulets just like they did in Ancient Egypt.

And just for fun- Hailey as a mummy.

Science:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Using printables from The Razzle Dazzle Classroom, Hailey made a book about the life cycle of a pumpkin.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

After reading several books about the life cycle of a pumpkin, she described each step in the process and drew a picture to go along with it.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

On Halloween, Hailey made a self inflating ghost using an idea I saw at Mama Smiles.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Math:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey did this fun Spooky Sums math paper on Halloween.  I wrote out the questions and then used a white crayon to put the answer inside the ghost.  After Hailey did the math problem she used water colors to paint the ghost to check her answer.

We’re actually working on Thanksgiving themed activities right now.  Hopefully I’ll get those posted before Christmas :-)

Preschool in Review

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

Several weeks ago Hunter started saying he didn’t want to do school anymore.  He is young so we will just back off for a while until he’s ready again.  Since then there have been a few times he saw me working on an activity with Hailey and he wanted to do something too. Here are a few of the projects he has made:

Hailey did a unit about Johnny Appleseed and her project is on the left.  Hunter wanted to make one too- his is on the right.

Reading about pumpkins in his Scholastic magazine.

So there is a little glimpse into what Hunter has been up to.  Hopefully he’ll be ready to do “school” again soon.
