Catching Snowflakes - grade 3 As you may have noticed, my past few projects have been decidedly winter themed, but I can't help it - today it was close to minus 40 with the windchill! I feel like I am just completely surrounded by winter and cold and snow right now, and it's definitely affecting my choice of art projects. I originally saw this idea as a collage on artsonia but decided to have my grade 3's do them with pastels instead, just to get them drawing and coloring. They began by drawing the face (with the little button nose on top) then drew the scarf and body. Following that, they added in more details, such as the mouth, the hair, and the sweater pattern. It just kills me how cute these are.

Paper Plate Ship's Porthole There have been many versions of this classic paper plate craft. This paper plate porthole has a different version as well, called the paper plate aquarium.

This was originally published on Kaboose, then that site sold to Spoonful and it didn’t transfer for one reason or another. So I’m putting it up here because it’s one of my favorites!
The month of October is always a lot of fun in my classroom, and I just wanted to share some of our very favourite activities across different subjects. Math: "If you can't beat them, join them" ... so last year I resisted to urge to battle the candy in the classroom rule the day after Halloween ... instead, we put those candy wrappers to good use. :) I asked students to empty their lunches (and pockets) of all their Halloween treats and we made a tally chart showing all the treats brought to school that day (a little shocking, but made for some great data). Once we had completed our class tally chart, I let the students work in pairs to represent the data in three way - a chart, a graph of their choice, and show the mean and median. So much fun, and it kept them focused through the sugar rush.
