Ms. Damschroder's 3rd Grade
Week of December 14, 2015
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I would like to take this space to wish you all a very happy holiday season! School is on break from December 21st through January 1st. Classes resume Monday, January 4, 2016!
Christmas Party--Note to Parents
Also, for your planning purposes, we will not have a traditional gift exchange, but we will have a "stocking stuffer" party. Students will be asked to bring one small item to school for each student on or before December 18th. Small items will be new and unwrapped. Items could include: pencils, a piece of wrapped candy, an eraser, a sticker, a small inexpensive toy (like something you could find at the dollar stores in the party section) etc. Please do not spend a lot of money. If you need help with this, let me know.
What do I do at home?
Read EVERY night. Find a good book and READ, READ, READ!! You should read for at least 15-20 minutes every day. Make sure you are not reading something that is too easy or too hard. If you need books, let Ms. Damschroder know.
Practice memorizing multiplication and division math facts. if you need flash cards, let Ms. Damschroder know.
There will be no new spelling words this week!
