Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
Third grade today went outside at the beginning of class to have exploratory time while it was cool outside and to release some of their energy. After running around and connecting with our classmates, we started our writing prompt and discussed it in our circle time.
Our prompt and discussion today was: If you were to help someone in need, what would it be? Everyone expressed their ideas of helping someone using empathy (putting themselves in someone else's shoes). We then had a discussion about what Ms. Love is planning to help others. Ms. Love is planning to go to the Food Bank soon. We will pack food that will help the Buddy Pack system. Ms. Love will have more information about the trip soon as she is trying to solve transportation before planning a date.
Students went to work on their Google Classroom answering a survey and writing about their thoughts about the Morenet Mill trip. The Everfi Digital Citizenship program is up and rolling! Students have been challenges to read and listen to the simulation to write better passwords and figure out which website is safer to use: is it an HTTP or HTTPS site?
As students are working through the simulation on Everfi, they are learning how to make better choices now while using the internet, texting and social media in the future. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Students may access the program at home as well, but I would like for them not to get far ahead as we talk about the problems they had to solve.
Thanks so much and have a wonderful week!
