Summer Time is Six Flags Read to Succeed Time

Six Flags partners with schools to promote reading through their Read to Succeed program. Students read for six hours and earn a FREE ticket to Six Flags. This year 55 Woodland Heights students participated. The best part - teachers also earn a ticket as long as they have at least one student complete the program! 22 teachers received tickets as well. My family made our trek to Six Flags Over Georgia on a hot day in July. Thank you Six Flags for providing this opportunity for students and teachers and for promoting reading!

3rd Grade: Color Thesaurus

3rd graders honed their reference skills using the thesaurus - in print and online. First they created synonym chains out of index cards - some were quite long with up to 25 synonym chains! Next students used artist and author Ingrid Sundberg's Color Thesaurus. The Color Thesaurus is a visual representation of the different names and shades of colors. Students found new words for their favorite colors and then added them to a group poster. Why go with just blue when you have all of these options:
