Impossible 2 Possible

The Impossible Was Possible
Learning about India in Grade 3 is awesome!Over the past 10 days (Nov. 27- Dec 6th) we have followed 4 runners that have run 270 km around the Thar Desert. We were very lucky to get the chance to video chat with Jessica, Patrick, Emma and Hashveer when they were in India. They are a part of the Impossible 2 Possible team that were teaching us about the animals, (yuck snakes) food, environment and hospitals in India. Emma is going to try to bring us some sand from the Thar Desert.
They all taught us that if we believe in ourselves and persevere anything can be possible.

Forestburg Grade 3 Skypes with Arambol India

On March 17th our Grade 3 class experienced the world of Skype with Leslie Lindballe and 3 children that live in Arambol, Goa, India. It was 9:00 a.m. here and 9:30 p.m. there. It was amazing! One thing that we found surprising was that cows are Gods. They also said that +27 C felt cold to them.
We asked them about their food, clothes and what their house was like. They asked us, if snow hurts when it hits us? We hope to Skype with Leslie again when she is in Mumbai.

Making Comments

Look at this!
A Grade 3 class in Jacksonville has made a video about making comments on their blogs.

They brainstormed what they already knew about commenting on blogs. What does quality even mean? What would a “quality comment” on the third grade classroom blog mean and look like? Collaboratively the class came up with the following commenting guidelines.

3rd Grade- Quality Commenting from MJGDS Classrooms on Vimeo.

They had some wonderful ideas and put a lot of work into their newscast!

We Have Started Blogging!!

We have started a new adventure in Grade 3!
This week we have started blogging. Each student has their own blog
at Student Blogs you do need a password to read it and every comment will pass through my mailbox before it is posted. If you would like to read what the students have written please ask them to show you they are very proud of their blogs.
