Third Grade Students Learn By Giving
The Third Grade teachers and students have recently started a program through the website, freerice.com. The students work on this site to solve math problems, work on grammar skills and use their knowledge of geography. Every time that the students answer one question correctly, they earn 10 grains of rice. Each class is working together as a team to add to the class total. After just one day of doing this, the students earned over 20,000 grains of rice!
The rice that is earned by each classroom is actually donated to help those who are hungry in many parts of the world. Students get to help the less fortunate by using their knowledge and skills and at the same time, putting an end to hunger.
AIG Students Have Aquatic Adventure
Many young people are fascinated with sea life, especially sharks. But not many have the opportunity to spend the night with them! Last week, 49 students from Mrs. Ziskind’s AIG classes were able to do just that. After lunch, students and chaperones set off for Myrtle Beach and Ripley’s Aquarium. Before visiting the Aquarium, the group explored WonderWorks, a multi-level attraction full of fascinating hands-on learning activities and even an indoor ropes course. Most of the students and a few of the chaperones donned harnesses and safety gear and braved the neon-lit course on the top floor of the building.Full Story
