Jumping into November

Well, we made it through October with a bang.  Had a wonderful day on Halloween, the students went Trick or Treating to the other grade 3 classes.  I was lost without my partner Kaitlin at my school, so I fell down a rabbit hole and went to school as Alice in Wonderland. The class had a fantastic time on Halloween.  We worked on pumpkin shape poems, made Frankenstein treat bags, and played old fashion games like drop the clothes pin in the cup, bean bag toss, witch hat toss, and pin the wing on the bat. The Halloween scavenger hunt was a huge hit, and I have included some pics of the hidden pictures around the room. If you missed out on the Halloween scavenger hunt this year make sure it is on your wish list for next year. What a great day.

Later in the week the class worked on an art activity that tied into our pioneer unit and our chapter study of "Little House in the Big Woods. These Owl's are very simple and were made out of brown paper bags, but as you can see, each were so unique. The students absolutely loved the whole activity. After each chapter we read the students answer some comprehension questions, but at the end of this chapter they were thrilled to work on something a little more hands on. 

Today we started our Remembrance Day masterpieces that I found yesterday by "That Artist Women" http://www.thatartistwoman.org/2008/11/remembrance-day-painting-art-project.html.  I have included some pictures of their works of art in the beginning stages. So far they are amazing. We have something planned for Random Act of Kindness Day this Friday and it will be posted on our blog and Teacher Pay Teacher very soon.
