Happy Holidays from these wonderful 3rd graders! We had a blast at our special snack yesterday. Unfortunately, there was so much going on that I didn't take any pictures during the party! Luckily we took a few before the fun began
We've only got two weeks until the Winter break and the new semester will begin when we return jn 2015. I can't believe our year is half way done already! We are finishing up our unit on Plant growth and development, as well as our last Reading lesson of the first semester. Next year, 2015, we will have a new science unit and we will switch to our other set of reading books.
Tomorrow, there will be notes going home about the holiday party. It will be on Wednesday, December 17th around 1:00. Also, don't forget that the 18th and 19th are half days so the kiddos will be coming home early.
Wow! It is hard to believe it is already November! We have a lot going on this month. Tomorrow holiday picture money is due and the Veteran's day assembly is at 1:00 in the Gym. We are also on the count down to our field trip to Tennessee..Less than 3 weeks to go! Please keep working with your student on their reading and math work, since this nine weeks will go by very fast!
Here is our bulletin board decorated with our "not turkeys". The turkeys are disguised as ninjas, dinasaurs, space porate?, ladybugs, hunters, and many other creative costumes. Enjoy!
I had to post some more pics from this week! Here are the kids that wore pink for cancer awareness today! We are having a great week and are super pumped about Halloween!
We are having a special snack tomorrow afternoon to celebrate and anything store bought is welcome.
Reminders: field trip money is due on Monday November 3rd. Holiday picture money is due on November 5th. Holiday pictures will be on November 6th. Happy Halloween!

I can't believe that homecoming is this Friday! This year is zooming by, but we are having a blast! Due to homecoming, we will be reviewing reading skills and there will not be any reading or language tests. Next week we will be on Lesson 7. Here are a few "Black Out" pics! Tomorrow is favorite college team shirt!
We have had so much fun with our Science unit on the Human body! Today we continued our study by building models of the thumb! We identified the bones, joints, muscle, and tendons in the thumb. We also took some fun class pictures! Don't forget to check out some more pictures in the gallery section of our website.
We have officially started our Science unit on the Human Body! Last week, we started off with the skeleton. It was so much fun seeing students put together their skeletons and decorating them. I love when we can use our creativity to help us learn!
This week we continued learning about bones by inspecting bones found in owl pellets. Our 3rd graders had a blast finding the rodent bones and comparing them to the human skeleton. (Even though it's gross, everyone really got into it!) Pictures will be posted in our gallery asap!
I hope everyone has had a great start to their week, I know we did in our class! I had students record their homework and test reminders in their agenda today. For those of you who are wanting more information, don't worry! I am sending home information in our weekly newsletter that will be sent home in our Tuesday bus folders. (Unless we still do not have the new folders, in which case the papers will go home in a student folder.)
Along with the newsletter, parents will recieve several letters about math websites and lessons, a textbook sign out sheet, and any school reminders to be sent home.
Let me know if you still have questions or concerns!
