Happy 2022 Reflections! 🎉

 New Year Reflections are a fun part of January.

Students used a template as a way to reflect on themself as we enter a new year. 

We even embedded new tech skills as we completed this Google Slide assignment. Can you insert a selfie in a document? Do you know the shortcuts for copy and paste? Can you crop an image into a new shape? Where are emojis found?

Take a peek at the completed projects below.

Set Sail With O'News

 Third Graders in Mrs. O'Connor's class took on the BIG job of newspaper editors.

As a class, students began brainstorming ideas that they wanted to share about the happenings in their classroom.

A difficult decision was choosing a name for the publication. They agreed on O'News ~ Hooked on Third Grade Learning.

Students in collaborative groups of 3 volunteered to write the articles and edit the articles.

They should be so proud of their hard work!
