October 9th, 2017 – Quarter 1 Ends

Good Day Families!

This week we will conclude the first quarter of the school year.  I don’t understand how time has flown by so quickly!  Even with a shortened week, we will have spelling words from Unit 2, Week 2 of our curriculum.  The kids will learn about immigration, and understand how/why so many people have immigrated to America.

The next time you’re at school, please stop by the bulletin board outside the third grade pod, as our completed U.S. Flag Mural is on display.  It’s really neat to see, especially in person.  So many kids decorated their section with flags and symbols  from around the world.  It’s a nice way to honor those immigrants that have come to America for opportunity and to help build our country.

In Math we’ll continue our seemingly endless pursuit of mastering multiplication and division facts.  We’re also using our Intervention section of the day to practice subtraction.  It’s a nice review of what they learned last year, as well as a refresher before we practice addition and subtraction in a few short weeks.

Thanks to all of you that ordered in our first Scholastic book order!  I was able redeemed points for $25 worth of free books for our classroom library!  I have a bad feeling the books won’t arrived before fall break, so the kids may have to wait until next week to received their order.  I’ll keep you posted!

I hope you and yours are doing well…have a great week!
