We built a big tower out of wood blocks.  We planted some seeds, maybe they'll be flowers.  We are researching tornadoes!  We run around and play games in Gym.  We are getting ready for the STEAM Fair!

We go to Gym and have so much fun.  We play instruments in Music and we make songs.  We made a rocket ship out of cardboard.  We're making shiny rocks and some crystals in jars.  We have numbers that we use when we're counting.

We are building a race track and racing cars.  We might make our own cars.  We have a new puppet theater and we are adding can tabs for Math.  I got my tooth pulled out.  We are exploring how to keep our teeth healthy.  We used the Zoomy to look at it.  We are also wondering if foods have good sugars and bad sugars.

Raymond and I are building a castle using wood blocks and loose parts.  We sketch our designs!  We read so many books in the morning!  We are doing Math Frenzy, too.  We used to do plus, but now we are doing minus!

The book order came in was our holiday gift.  We love to read so much in our class, we were so excited to get new books!  We are doing lots of coding in our class.  We have a robot named Dash in our class that we can code.  We are doing a lot of Math in our class...we like to be challenged!  We are also writing a story about Dash together!

In my class, we are making cars for STEAM Fair.  We get to work in groups.  I'm with Myla and Keira.  My car is already finished!  We used recyclables to make our cars.

Our classroom is bringing stuff from all around the world for sharing.  We are tweeting about it.  We are putting it on the world map with tacks to show where everything is from.

In our classroom, we are working on our STEAM Fair projects.  Some of us are doing crystals, planets, volcanoes and lots more.  We are also researching and making habitats.  A favorite book in our classroom is Abby Cornelia's One and Only Magical Power.  We are also using charcoal pencils to create art with our high school helper, Emma.

Ms. Shamanski's Grade 3&4
written by Rylan

Our class is getting ready for the STEAM Fair.  Some of us are doing our explorations and research on animals for STEAM Fair.  We are working in our special Reading Journals everyday.  We write about the problem, solution and the beginning, middle & end.  Sometimes we write about the author's message like when they teach you where to put commas and how to use punctuation.  The author is trying to help you write and put capitals where you are supposed to.  In Music, we are playing our recorders and earning our karate belts!  I am on my bronze belt and I can't wait to earn it next Music class!

Mrs. Magnusson's Grade 3&4

Our class is working on our STEAM Fair projects.  Some students are making rock candy, glowing water, slime, stop motion videos and more!  Everyone is making a backboard.  I can't wait until STEAM Fair!!!  For Math, we have Math sheets.  They are multiplication and division.  Sometimes we do Math Frenzy, adding and subtracting.  Our teacher is reading us a chapter book called Frindle!  I think the book is very interesting!  Every day we have silent reading and we get to pick our home reading books!
