Welcome back! It’s not going to be easy to hear the alarm go off early Tuesday morning, but it will be exciting to see everyone after the nice, long break!. We have a lot to accomplish during the month of January. The students will take a reading and math benchmark test at the end of the month to show what they know about each topic we have learned so far in the third grade. Everyone needs to work hard and stay focused!
The newsletter page and the homework page have been updated for this week. Just a reminder that tomorrow is PE. Everyone needs to wear running shoes. The high tomorrow is only supposed to reach the upper 20s! We will more than likely have indoor recess unless the weather dramatically changes for the better.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. We can do this!
We are looking forward to our last week of school before the winter break. Thank you so much to Mrs. Burke for planning the Winter Activity on Friday. If you are planning on attending, please make sure that you have filled out a volunteer form. The newsletter and homework pages have been updated for the week. I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday!
I just want to send out a huge congratulations to Anaya and Caleb. Anaya will represent our class in the school spelling bee next Wednesday. Caleb is our runner up. All of the kids did a great job in our classroom spelling bee this morning. Good luck next week, Anaya! We know you will do a great job!
I hope that all of the students have been busy studying multiplication facts. We are currently practicing the 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s facts. We will have a quiz on the 1s and 2s facts on Thursday and the 5s and 10s facts on Friday.
Please remember that the kids will be performing for you tomorrow night at the PTA meeting. All students should wear red, white, and blue. I will see you tomorrow night!
I know the kids are super excited to perform in the Veteran’s Day Program on Friday morning and on Tuesday, November 14th during the PTA meeting. Don’t forget that the kids will wear red, white, and blue for both shows.
Please place your Scholastic Orders no later than Monday night. I would like to submit the orders on Tuesday to ensure that the kids receive their books before Thanksgiving Break. Our code is H2PCF at https://clubs.scholastic.com
Also, the homework page and the newsletter page have been updated for the week. Check it out!
We will start mulitplication next week! It would be great if all of the kids could have a set of multiplication cards for practice at home. I have had good luck finding flashcards at Walmart, Amazon, and Teach N’ Things. Of course, the kids could make their own flashcards using index cards. There are several websites on the blog for extra multiplication practice.
Also, Make-Up Picture Day is Wednesday, November 8th. In order to retake pictures, students must bring the unwanted pictures back on make up day to give to the photographer. Hopefully, we will receive the school pictures soon!
Tomorrow we are celebrating colleges. Students are encouraged to wear their favorite college shirt.
