Glad to be in Grade 3. (Or, any grade, I suppose.) "I really want to learn about...; I wish we could...; I'm wondering about...; I'm nervous about..." Awesome idea to give you some insight into your kiddos at the beginning of the year. =) Schools Activities, 3Rdgrade, Schools Ideas, 3Rd Grade Writing, Writing Ideas, Grade Thinker, Third Grade, Writing Activities, Schools Years

This blog is seriously the coolest, it makes me wish I was teaching third grade! But some of her ideas can be applied to high school...I will definitely be using the cereal and spaghetti idea to introduce Euclidean geometry on the first day of summer school!!! So excited :)
This is a great family activity to do before school starts! Parents lead your children to discuss what makes a good friend and make the chart together. Throughout the year when friendship issue arise, refer back to this list to help your child process the makings of a good friendship. Parents can share stories of their friendships and what made the friendship special.
Print on card stock. Have kid draw picture of self on back. Cut out and put pieces in Baggie. Take home self expression activity!
Every year for Open House I have my kids write autobiographies about themselves, and we do the WHOLE process (they feel sooo fancy working on their rough draft, and then writing their final draft!) We also step draw ourselves, and then trace with sharpie (of course!) and color in.
This gave me an idea for one of my favorite quotes: Take a picture of hands in family and hang under the quote: "Un homme est qu'il a fait, par ses mains voyons sa coeur." ( A man is what he has done, by his hands we see his heart.) -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"3rd grade reading resources" This website was a great help with my 3rd grader. He started the year with an early 2nd grade reading level. Now, towards the end of the same school year, he tests at an early sixth grade reading level. His success was a result of many activities on (and our own ideas inspired by) this website. A+++
