Bustling Butterflies

Students in Mrs. Paul’s Arts & Humanities rotation classes created these beautiful butterflies in connection with their study of the art of Japanese origami. Like paper itself, origami actually originated in China but became popular in Japan as early as the 1600’s. Students began by first decorating the paper with original designs. Then they formed their butterflies without cutting by creating a series of folds from a single sheet of paper.

Charlotte's Web

Third graders began reading Charlotte’s Web the third week of school. We read a chapter a day and summarized the main events. After completing the book, we began writing about our favorite character. They included two reasons why they liked that character and used details from the book to support their reasons. To celebrate their hard work, students were invited to dress as their favorite character from the book and enjoy book themed activities in all their classes. They ended the day by watching the movie of Charlotte’s Web and enjoying popcorn and a spider web snack!
