We had another fun week in 3A! We were able to eat lunch outside on Monday. We also went outside during one of the reading times this week. The students enjoyed reading a few chapters from the story outside. Next week we will continue to work on Nate the Great and also have the same spelling words. There was no spelling test or reading test this week due to the story being over 2 weeks. The students also dissected a lima bean this week in science. They were able to see the parts of the seed inside the lima bean. They really enjoyed this science experiment. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

We had a great week in 3A! We tried our best to get some movement throughout the week on these rainy days. We did some Go Noodles and the students enjoyed them. The students also had the chance to take some shots on a basketball hoop after they answered questions correctly about the reading story this week. We had some even make 3 points shots. As a reminder please make sure your child comes to school dressed appropriately for the weather to be comfortable at recess. We try to get out to recess as much as possible even if the weather isn’t perfect. We want to get some movement and also fresh air in as we are limited even more due to Covid restrictions. We are hoping to have more fall-like days so we can eat lunch outside more. We have eaten outside 3 times so far this year and the students really enjoyed it. We have also been trying to take 2 mask breaks in the morning and 2 in the afternoon for about 10 minutes or less each time since school started. During these times the students aren’t talking and are either listening to me read a story, or we are watching a brain pop jr on a concept we are learning.
Thank you so much for continuing to complete the homework on XtraMath, IXL, and Google Classroom. I will send an email on Monday outlining homework for the whole week. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
