Third Grade in Review

07
Jan

So, now that the holidays are all over I am finally getting around to finishing up posting about what we did at Thanksgiving time.  I am really going to work on posting things this year when they are actually helpful :-)  But maybe someone can use this idea for next year.

After we learned about what life was like for the pilgrims, we learned what it was like to be a Wampanoag Indian.

I made this little wetu- the type of house the Wampanoag lived in.

Then we read If you Lived at the Time of Squanto and wrote down information that we thought was interesting and added it to our wetu.

Hailey made a book of facts about the Wamanoag using her 5 favorite things she had learned.

She wrote what she had learned and drew an illustration to go with it.

Hailey also made this cute turkey.  Then I had her write a paragraph about why she thought a turkey would or would not make a good pet.

From now on, I’m going to post things when we actually do them.  Promise this time :-)

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.

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.

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!

Poppins Book Nook- Animal Theme

25
Nov

PoppinsBookNook

The theme for this months Poppins Book Nook was animals.  Since we were learning about Thanksgiving this month, I decided to go with a turkey for our animal.

Fun With Turkeys

We used a few different books to go with our theme.  We read “A Turkey for Thanksgiving” by Eve Bunting, which is a super cute story!  Then we read 2 non-fiction books- “All About Turkeys” by Jim Arnosky and “Turkeys that Fly and Turkeys That Don’t” by Allen Fowler.  We learned so much from those 2 books!

Fun With Turkeys

As we read the non-fiction books about turkeys, we added feathers to this turkey.  Each feather has an interesting fact about turkeys.

Fun With Turkeys

I had Hailey write in her journal pretending to be a turkey and giving reasons why she should not be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner.

Turkey Fun

We also made some turkey crafts, you can see the full post here.  These are the cute hats we made.

Turkey Fun

Hailey made this turkey with a cute poem on it.
