Here are a few of the great things that have been going on in Room 3:
- The students have been busy spreading kindness throughout BES. They have also been celebrating friendship right in our classroom. We have been talking about the positive traits that each one of us has. This has been an introduction to our ‘Secret Valentine’ exchange that we will be having on Valentine’s Day. (Information was sent home last week.) Please have your child complete the claim about their ‘Secret Valentine’ and bring it in to school by Feb 11th.
- Writing workshop- Over the last few weeks, our third graders have been learning how to develop their opinions and create thoughtful and strong, persuasive writing pieces. Early on, I encouraged each of the students to think of an idea, topic or problem that has personal significance and meaning to them so that they can write with strength and sincerity. Throughout our class discussions, there was a great deal of focus put on our school community and our town community. The students brainstormed ideas that would help make our local communities better, stronger, healthier, and happier. Conversation starter:*Ask your child what they are writing about to improve our school or local community.
- Math: Please continue to support your child with their fact fluency practice. There will be a fact fluency check-in this week.
- Spelling: The Unit 7 Spelling packet is due on Friday, Feb 8th. The Bonus Unit Spelling packet can be turned in at any time.
