I am excited to begin my second year of teaching Third Grade, after 11 years in first. I am passionate about giving my students opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and exploring the world around them through guided inquiry. I created the blog to allow parents and families to get a glimpse into the daily happenings of our classroom and for other teachers to gain ideas to enhance their teaching.
This is my FAVORITE event of the year! I have done this event for several years and each year I love it more. After several weeks of studying and writing poetry, students performed their original poetry for a packed house. We set the mood by wearing all black, dimmed the lights, and had jazz music playing in the background. We even had a "fire" going. Here are a few students during our rehearsal.
Video was taken of the performance. Of course, I didn't download it before break, so as soon as we return from Spring Break, I will post the video.
After the performance, we enjoyed coffee and treats. Thank you to Starbucks, Panera, Krogers, and Meijers for your donations! I want to give a shout out to Mrs. C and Mrs. W for organizing the entire event. Thank you to everyone who attended.
