We are having so much fun this week with Spirit week. I will be posting pictures of all of dress up days on Friday. Today I wanted to share some pictures of our special visit and some October events.
We had a guest speaker visit with us today, along with some special tiny guests, bees! Don't worry, they were in a sealed container, but the kids were able to get a sneak peek at the bees and how they interact within their hive. The kids were very excited!
We will also be working on our addition facts with a new Ninja math activity. Students will be able to earn belts (go to the next level) once they master a certain number of facts. We will also be starting The Book it program. Students who read for 20 minutes a day all month, which is already our daily homework, will earn a free pizza coupon at the end of the month. Information will be sent home about both programs within the next week.
Don't forget that tomorrow is College team attire and Friday will be purple and gold. If someone will be checking out your child on Friday who is not already on their list of approved adults, please send a note by Friday morning. We will not be able to take permission by phone calls, only written notes. Go Choctaws!
Wow! September is almost over and so is the 1st 9 Weeks! We are having a great year!
Next week will be very eventful too. Monday is the crowning of the king and queen, Wednesday we will have special visitors to teach us about bees, then we will finish off the week with the day of homecoming and the parade. To help us celebrate and support our highschool, we will be having a spirit week as well.
Monday- Class color day. Our class is dressing in orange.
Tuesday- Crazy sock day
Wednesday- Hippy/ 70s day
Thursday- College/ sports Team shirt
Friday- homecoming shirts or rock that purple and gold!
Since the week will probably be hectic with all of the fun, we will not have any reading tests next week. Go Choctaws!
This month has started out pretty good. We have had a lot of fun with science and we have already finished our first math unit!
Since it is a short week, we do not have a reading or vocabulary test and our spelling is just review. Next week we will be starting a new math unit involving adding and subtracting within 1000! We will also take our science test on Friday September 18th.
Here are a few reminders... Grandparents day is tomorrow and we will have lunch at 12:10. The. field trip has been set for November. We are going to the Georgia Aquarium. Please make sure to return the letter sent home today.
Here are a few pictures of our farmers in celebration of Mr. Bolding's birthday today.
I am very excited to meet my new group of 3rd graders! While I hope everyone enjoys the last few weeks of summer, it will be here before we know it! Here are a few reminders and suggestions to help the year start off smoothly.
Orientation for 3rd and 4th grade is on August 4th from 4:00 to 6:00pm. This is a great opportunity to meet the teacher, me :), see the classroom, drop off supplies, and pick up the necessary paperwork. I love getting to meet students and I believe seeing the classroom helps those first day jitters everyone has.
The first day of school is on August 6th. If you are unable to come to the orientation, this is the day to drop off supplies and pick up paperwork. Please return paperwork as soon as possible, especially the forms for emergencies and contact information.
This year I am using an app/ website to communicate with parents. It is called remind101. In order to recieve announcements you can text @3hbes to 81010 or I can add your number or email to the list. If you download the app, you can also chat directly with me. While there will be times when I can not reply immediately, like during school or during family time, I think this will be a great tool for parents who need to discuss or ask questions. I will still send information home in folders and I am available for conference.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone soon! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
I know that it seems like the lists get longer every year, but these are just some of the supplies we use throughout the year to help students learn, stay healthy, and to keep our classroom clean and sanitary. With 20+ kiddos in a room, supplies disappear quickly, so it is very helpful for parents to help with costs. You are appreciated! We couldn't do our job as well without your support with materials and at home. The 3rd grade supply list can be found at the back of the school, or at Walmart in Centreville. I am also posting it here, just in case they are all gone.

I know it was only two days, but this first week has been amazing with our class! I have to admit that my favorite part was watching the students work together on the STEM (science technology engineering math) challenges. They did great on the 50 cup building challenge and rescuing Freddy the worm with only paper clips. I will post pictures as soon I recieve all of the student handbook sheets.
Next week we will start getting into our math and reading lessons. We will have our first reading and spelling test on Friday. Keep a look out for a studyguide to come home on Monday.
