The 3H Crew has many reasons to be happy: they worked hard and presented many neat projects for their families to see at our open house; they were in a three way tie for 1st place in Landmark Games (Primary Group A); they survived the never ending winter and made it to spring; and they created amazing instruments as a part of our science sound unit. Watch and listen to them jam to Because I'm Happy by Pharrell Williams.

The 3H Crew started 2014 by learning about coding. We started this morning by watching a video on the Computer Science Education Week web site (http://csedweek.org/learn ) and writing code using laptops to help the Angry Bird catch the pig. In the afternoon, we tried out our new found skills and used the Hopscotch app on the iPads. The 3H Crew found out it takes critical thinking skills and a lot of experimentation when it comes to computer coding! The students were very excited about writing code and many shared how they were going to go home and continue writing code using the programs we tried out today in school. They sure make their teacher proud! Please follow these links to see some of the finished programs:

To learn about the community, each one of the 3H Crew became an expert about one of our "community" vocabulary words. They researched the meaning, created a gesture and a vocabulary card to help classmates remember the word, tried to make connections of how the word fit into "community" and then taught the class their special word. After all the words were taught, the 3H Crew worked together to group like words, and ultimately created a huge community graphic organizer(see below). Click on the photo below to see all of the Community Vocabulary cards.

The 3H Crew learned all about biographies. First they read a biography, took notes, and then used the information learned to create a project about the subject of their biography. Students could choose to create a PowerPoint Presentation, Glog, or accordion book. The final activity was a Biography Bash where the students "became" the person they learned about and gave a speech to classmates, parents, and other special guests. Click on the image below to view the Biography Projects.

The 3H Crew is very interested in learning all about the history of our community. Today we learned about how architecture has changed in the 300 years Haddonfield has been around. After learning about different styles of architecture, we hit the streets and became architecture detectives. We checked out 7 houses and after answering a series of questions, determined what style of architecture each house was. Here we are in front of a great example of a Queen Anne style Victorian house.

We ended our Sound Unit by making Recycled Instruments. Each student was taped while he/she presented their instrument to the class. The students also wrote a paragraph about the instrument and took a photo of it using an iPad. The students created a Glog (an interactive poster) incorporating all of the components. Click on the Glogster image below to see all of the Recycled Instrument Glogs. The slideshow gives you a front row seat to the "3H Jam Session." Enjoy!

The 3H Crew tried something new this week. To help learn more about different communities, we connected with 2 other classes who participated in the Global Monster Project and skyped! On Monday we skyped with Mr. Ferguson's 4th grade and learned all about a rural community in New Hampshire. Today we skyped with Mrs. Daemmrich's 4th grade class and learned all about a suburb in Wisconsin. The 3H Crew will be using the information to compare these communities to our own community.

To learn about the community, each one of the 3H Crew became an expert about one of our "community" vocabulary words. They researched the meaning, created a gesture and a vocabulary card to help classmates remember the word, tried to make connections of how the word fit into "community" and then taught the class their special word. After all the words were taught, the 3H Crew worked together to group like words, and ultimately created a huge community graphic organizer(see below). Click on the photo below to see all of the Community Vocabulary cards.

Thanksgiving



by Ivy O. Eastwick



Thank you



For all my hands can hold-


Apples red,


And melons gold,


Yellow corn


Both ripe and sweet,


Peas and beans


So good to eat!






Thank you


For all my eyes can see-


Lovely sunlight,


Field and tree,


White cloud-boats


In sea-deep sky,


Soaring bird


And butterfly.






Thank you


For all my ears can hear-


Birds’ song echoing


Far and near,


Songs of little


Stream, big sea,


Cricket, bullfrog,


Duck and bee!

The 3H Crew is back to school today after experiencing first hand a little storm called Hurricane Sandy.  We are very lucky that everyone is safe and things are beginning to get back to normal.  Halloween was poseponed in our town and will be celebrated on Friday.  All of the 3H Crew had hurricane stories to tell, so we shared the sights, sounds, and feelings about the storm. Here are pictures of our inspiration charts and some of the great entries the students wrote about their experiences:



  



 





 





 



Hurricane Sandy Experiences



Sentences that make it come to life:



We have experienced Hurricane Sandy. It is when we get a lot of impact of rain and strong wind. Trees fall down and basements flood.  Electricity goes out.



By Jacob and Owen



During Hurricane Sandy, we were stuck inside.  On the news, we saw the boardwalk at the shore crumble to pieces. We also saw a power line explode. Shayne and Cece saw that Ocean City, NJ was completely covered in water. The storm was 90 miles long.  Then the storm died out and we were safe.



By Shayne and Cece



The main lesson of Hurricane Sandy is be prepared. I saw several trees go down taking the power lines with them.  Soon the wind was blowing, no howling like a wolf in the middle of nowhere. Lights were flickering like a ghost was at the light switch. I was feeling so adventurous I played LIFE.



By Cal



We felt the cold, strong winds from Hurricane Sandy. We heard the exploding transformers. We smelled the smoke from the exploding transformer. We saw trees down in front of houses and in streets. We listened to the news and we saw all the damages that Sandy caused.



By Katie and Marisol



During Hurricane Sandy, I saw a transformer exploding. It looked like lightning blowing up and sounded like machine gun firing.  On the news I saw cars completely submerged in water and I felt empathy for the owners.



By Andy



We saw a tree fall and it sounded like a gun shot. There was devastation because people were losing their houses and bad stuff like that.  In the end, there was power lines down, transformers shattered, houses lost, flooding in thousands of places, people killed and so much more.



By Joseph and Carson



During Hurricane Sandy, we felt scared that the power would go out.  We saw pouring rain and sticks crashing to the ground. Even though we live in the same town, Evan’s power went out, but Wyatt’s did not.



By Evan and Wyatt



During Hurricane Sandy we saw trees waving back and forth, leaves were flying everywhere. Rain was pounding in puddles. The sewer pipe exploded, BOOM and flooded the street.  The tree crashed down and made a dent in the street and also it made a big loud crash.  We were happy, scared, and sad. We were happy because we did not lose power and we could watch tv. We were scared because we heard and saw really strong winds and we thought it might blow a tree down into our house.  We were sad because we could not go outside, and we heard branches cracking and breaking – CRACK!



By Daniel and Colleen



Hurricane Sandy came one dark and stormy night when all of a sudden, trees went crashing down. We felt sad for the people who lived where the tree fell down.



By Auden and Sara



 



Hurricane Sandy was horrible! In Scott’s neighborhood there were lots of blue flashes of light. Before the light came, there were tons of zapping sounds. It was kind of scary.



By Scott



During Hurricane Sandy, I was up in my playroom when I heard people banging on my door.  My mom, my sister and I opened the door and it was my neighbors. A big oak tree crashed on our fence and our garage.  The bad part was all of the power went out because the telephone pole fell with the tree.  Some of the wires were live.



By Ruby



During Hurricane Sandy I went over to my cousins during the weekend and one night we slept outside.  The rest of the time, we were inside.  We watched the news and saw how Hurricane Sandy was getting worse and worse.



By Billy

Hi!



 I hope that everyone has been having a lot of fun this summer. I have been spending time at the shore with my family, trying to keep the weeds from taking over my vegetable garden, reading lots of books, and  crafting.  Please let me know what you have been doing so far this summer!

The 3H Crew is working on another global project.  This time we have paired up with Mrs. Bushey's 5th graders and are participating in the Landmark Games, which has been dubbed "the most difficult intellectual game on the Internet". Forty-two teams from around the world are participating. Each team had to pick a landmark and write 9 clues about it.  Each week 3 new clues are sent about the 42 landmarks. Tatem's 5th graders and 3rd graders are working together using their critical thinking skills, map skills, and research skills in order to figure out where in the world the landmarks are. Each week the students are allowed to email one yes or no question in order to help them with their quest to find the landmark.



Our "Tatem Tiger" team is looking forward to seeing the last set of clues next week and is hopeful that they will be able to locate all of the landmarks.  Wish us luck!

Trekking the Planet Header



The 3H Crew is very excited to be a part of Trekking the Planet project!



Here is a message from Darren and Sandy Van Soye about their journey:





Our Journey is a 424-day, around-the-world trip to raise geography education awareness.



We plan to visit six continents and approximately 50 countries.



During the expedition, we will be taking approximately 12 hikes or "treks" to some of the most remote and unspoiled places in the world.



Travel will be by ground (boat, train, bus), where possible, to experience the world more closely and minimize our carbon footprint.





Our Mission is to bring geography to life and instill a greater curiosity about the world - its people, culture and our fragile planet - in as many young people as possible.



By following this journey, kids can increase their understanding of geography and develop an appreciation for the cultural and natural significance of places in the world.



Our Goal is to engage students by providing geography education modules: sixty (60) four-page weekly overviews (that correspond to where we will be) that use the framework of the Geography Standards of 1994 developed by the US National Council for Geographic Education.



We plan to send out weekly supplemental emails with our impressions during our journey, as well as images and video from the road.



To view their live tracker and to learn more about their journey, please visit: http://www.trekkingtheplanet.net/live-tracker

Thanksgiving



by Ivy O. Eastwick



 



Thank you



For all my hands can hold-


Apples red,


And melons gold,


Yellow corn


Both ripe and sweet,


Peas and beans


So good to eat!


 


 


Thank you


For all my eyes can see-


Lovely sunlight,


Field and tree,


White cloud-boats


In sea-deep sky,


Soaring bird


And butterfly.


 


 


Thank you


For all my ears can hear-


Birds’ song echoing


Far and near,


Songs of little


Stream, big sea,


Cricket, bullfrog,


Duck and bee!

Read this Thanksgiving poem written by Ivy O. Eastwick and use it as inspiration to write your own Thanksgiving poem.



Thanksgiving



by Ivy O. Eastwick



 



Thank you



For all my hands can hold-


Apples red,


And melons gold,


Yellow corn


Both ripe and sweet,


Peas and beans


So good to eat!


 


 


Thank you


For all my eyes can see-


Lovely sunlight,


Field and tree,


White cloud-boats


In sea-deep sky,


Soaring bird


And butterfly.


 


 


Thank you


For all my ears can hear-


Birds’ song echoing


Far and near,


Songs of little


Stream, big sea,


Cricket, bullfrog,


Duck and bee!
