  • Students at Wake Up to Ag DayThird grade students took a recent field trip to Wake Up to Agriculture Day, a unique experience that highlights the importance of agriculture in Union County and North Carolina.  Students connected with agriculture in many ways to learn about farming and other agricultural related topics.  They were introduced to a variety of animals as they learned about body systems.  They investigated plants and soil and learned about the interactions of living organisms in an ecosystem.  They were also introduced to agricultural machinery as they learned concepts related to force and motion.  This unique experience gave our third graders an opportunity to be immersed in aspects of agriculture they may not have seen or thought about before.

  • Students and AIG projectsIn a display of student innovation and personalization, students in Mrs. Dascenzo's class have brought their passion for math to life through projects. Embracing the principles of student voice and choice, learners have explored diverse mathematical concepts, unleashing their creativity in the process. From designing intricate geometric patterns to analyzing sports statistics, each project was a testament to the unique interests and talents of the individual students.

    Students honed essential skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. Students had an opportunity to provide feedback to their peers which offered a platform to share their insights, reflections, and constructive criticism with their peers while offering thoughtful suggestions for improvement.

  • Student's projectOur third graders have turned into zoologists this past month! Our recent CKLA reading unit, Animal Classifications, has allowed students to be zoologists and learn about how animals are classified. Our recent project was picking out an animal and researching the chosen animal's habitat, life cycle, diet, and classification. Students then turned their findings into a poster to represent all their hard work. All in all, we had a spectacular time being zoologists!

  • Third grade students displaying workOur third grade students have been having fun for the holidays! Our activities have been focused on project-based learning and creative ways to experience learning to the fullest. We planned our Thanksgiving Dinner menu, escaped a snow globe with math riddles through technology, learned about holidays around the world, and have written and discussed our opinions on various topics, some of which are how we felt about the characters, the entire story, or the themes presented in either Aladdin, The Wind in the Willows, or Alice in Wonderland. All in all, we have had a marvelous holiday journey!

  • Students display pictures of Olympic ringsSecond Graders ended their Ancient Greek Civilizations unit with a Greek Extravaganza!  Each class rotated through five stations where they learned about the origins of the Olympic Rings, participated in their own Greek Olympics, drew the Parthenon, wrote an ode just like the Greek poet Pindar, and they created their own laurel leaf crowns.  It was a great learning experience!

  • Third grade students displaying workOur 3rd grade team has been collaborating together in order to differentiate math projects for students to show their mastery of 3rd grade math standards.  These projects help students improve their planning and critical thinking ability.  We have incorporated Distributive Doctor along with Multiplication and Division Frayer Models.  Students have also demonstrated fluency with multiplication and division by completing a Fact Family Haunted House project.  We look forward to including more projects throughout the year.
