First Graders Take on the Roles of Piggie and Gerald!

As a culminating activity for our Meeting Characters and Learning Lessons reading unit, Class 1-204B performed different Elephant and Piggie plays.  The students chose which book they wanted to perform and which character they wanted to play.  Performing the plays gave the students the perfect opportunity to practice all of the skills we learned during this unit.  The students made their character come to life by changing their voice, body, and facial expressions.  They thought about how their character was feeling at that moment and decided how they should look, act, and sound.  The students also created hats and props for their parts.  We invited class K-110 into our class to be our audience.  The students worked so hard and did such a great job!!!

Third Graders at The Bronx Zoo

In science the Third Grade has been learning all about animals.  Some things we are beginning to study are animal habitats, animal life cycles, the functions of different body parts, and ways animals sense.  We extended these studies by visiting The Bronx Zoo!  Here we are enjoying our day at the zoo.
