As a group, third grade generated a list of campaign topics of importance to them such as No Bullying, No Littering, and Healthy Living. Throughout the week, we worked on making posters that would send a message to others about these topics. Not only did the kids create bright and informational posters that truly stand out, but they also put a lot of thought and effort into generating ideas as to why these topics are so important. You can find their posters hanging up outside the third grade classroom! Be sure to check them out!
For those that were here on Tuesday, kids also got a taste of what it is like to be part of an election! The older kids ran for President of Base and us third graders got to take part in helping to campaign, make posters/pins, and even vote! Congrats to all that ran during the election and all that voted!
Third grade also got to spend time in the gym this week working on team building activities. Kids worked together in both large and small groups to achieve a common goal/task. The benefits of working as a team shined through during their activities.
