As a Third grade team, we assign biography book reports each year. We always strive to push students towards learning about new people. This is one reason we love the Who Was book series. As a part of this project the students will receive a 24 book set of the Who Was? book series, which features biographies for kids. All of our students enjoy learning in the classroom as well as the playground. We also believe that recess serves as a necessary break from the rigors of concentrated, academic challenges in the classroom. Equally important is the fact that safe and well-supervised recess offers cognitive, social, emotional, and physical benefits, which is why you will also see playground equipment, which includes which include basketballs, footballs, volleyballs, and frisbees, as a part of this project. We believe that all of these playground items, will provide students with learning experiences in and out of the classroom that they may not otherwise get to experience!
