First, thank you so much for all the different ways you shared your appreciation with me this week. My dining room table is covered in beautiful plants, a sweet teacher book with comments from each student, chocolate, bracelets, coffee, gift cards, love notes, fresh eggs, tea, seeds, drawings, and many other types of goodies that I will get great use out of. Thank you also for the awesome classroom wishlist items you all contributed to or gave to us. We have put the testing tents, organization containers, lava lamp, sensory seat, and laminating pouches to good use! We have only drooled over the glue sticks but we will open them for an interactive notebook entry on Monday 🙂 I really appreciate you all taking the time and effort to celebrate me and other teachers this week.
We played a new game called KaBOOM! this week in geometry and it was a lot of fun! We are also studying Greek Gods and Goddesses along with other notable myths. The students are really engaged in this topic and it’s been a fun study so far. We are also working on our final writing piece this week and this will finish up our third grade writing portfolio when we wrap it up in the coming weeks.
As always, please make sure your champion is completing the assigned homework. We have been getting math I-Ready completed at school which only leaves NewsELA and XtraMath to complete at home. Students are earning certificates and I know everyone would like to earn one before the year ends for sure.
Thanks again, see you Monday!
