This week we continued working hard on finishing up the 2nd quarter. It’s hard to believe that we are half way through 3rd grade. We will be busy the 2nd half of the year working on different research projects in the library and the computer lab. We have now finished working on all the lower case cursive letters so we will start writing in cursive more throughout the year, especially in spelling. A student council representative came to 3A this week and talked with the students about the Pulsera Project. The bracelets will be on sale next week after school until 3:45, but 3A will have the opportunity to buy them on Wednesday afternoon during school if they like. The bracelets are 5 dollars. A note also came home last week about it in the Friday folder about this. If you want to find out more about it you can go to this website: www.pulseraproject.org . Students can wear bracelets with their school uniforms from January 16-February 2. Also it was announced during the morning announcements that due to the snow day the lunch menu changed. Tuesday will be mega nachos and we will not being having pizza that day. On Wednesday the lunch menu will be back to normal. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with your family. This week we slowly eased back into our normal school day routine. With the cold weather outside we spent recess indoors playing games. Most of these 2 days we finished up our penguin projects. We will be going down to the computer lab on the 16th to type the penguin acrostic poems up. Each year I am amazed at how creative the students are with coming up with ways to phrase the research into their poems. This year’s class used some great higher level thinking to come up with spectacular poems. I hope you have a great weekend and stay warm.
We had a wonderful last full school week of 2017 in 3A! I was not there today, but I heard from multiple sources that 3A did a wonderful job with their lines for the Archdiocese thank you video. They said they were all smiling, enthusiastic, and so well behaved! Thank you so much with the help last night with those lines! We are going to celebrate on doing such a fantastic job by having donuts on Monday! Please make sure to be practicing those multiplication flash cards at home. It will make math easier going forward the rest of the year knowing those facts as fast as they can say their name. We have been playing some multiplication games called Kaboom and Around the World, and the students are really are starting to get the facts down. Please keep up the hard work of helping them memorizing those facts! Next week we have a short 2 day week so no spelling test and also I won’t be sending home Friday Folders on Tuesday. If anything important needs to be sent home I will send it in the homework folder. Have a great weekend!
