The kids have been so fortunate to have yoga instruction with Heather Altenburg throughout the year.  This has dovetailed very nicely with our daily mindfulness practice.

Ancient Egyptian Marketplace

After many preparations and a snow day postponement, the day of the Ancient Egyptian Marketplace finally arrived.  The children donned their costumes and "jewelry", laid out their products, hung their signs, and had notes at the ready.  Parents filed in to browse and "shop", and then stood around the perimeter of the room as each group of kids presented information about their wares. 


Sharing Nonfiction Writing

The class shared their nonfiction writing with another third grade class. 

Preparing for the Ancient Egyptian Marketplace

The children worked collaboratively to create "wares" to "sell" at the ancient Egyptian marketplace.  They also made signs advertising their products.
