DLI Students Write about their Favorite Activities in Class

"During our first nine weeks of class in 3rd grade, we have been working really hard on getting back to routines and rigorous learning including academic activities such as a show and tell with a 3rd grade class from Popayán, Colombia; reconnecting and practicing Spanish with last year classmates who are living now in Colorado and France; having parents as guest readers remotely – an idea from our room mom, Mrs. LaBaer; and mentoring. Norah, a student and leader in the class who offered to be a mentor of one of our kindergarten new students. Kudos to the class for building community through their initiatives!" Sta Torres

Actividades Favoritas de la clase

Hola! Somos Julia y Raya, estamos en tercer grado, en la clase de Srta. Torres. Vamos a hablar de nuestras actividades favoritos de tercero. Primero, me gustó cuando hicimos suma repetida en matemáticas para ser una estrategia para multiplicación, era muy divertido. Segundo, me gustó cuando estudió los niveles de gobierno en Ciencias, era muy interesante. También, me gustó cuando escribimos un texto informativo, investigó y aprendí mucho de mi tema. Hicimos una introducción, tabla de contenidos, cinco párrafos y un conclusión. Nosotros leemos muchos libros y artículos de nuestros temas. Era muy divertido y interesante. Finalmente, me gustó cuando aprendí sobre causa y efecto en lectura, hicimos causa y efecto con los textos informativos. Era muy chévere y interesante. Estas eran las actividades favoritas en la clase. Adiós!
