What's New in Mrs. Allen's Room?
Marc h 7-11, 2016
HAPPY SPRING!!! I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that today is the first day of Spring! It is my favorite time of year, with everything blooming and coming to life again! The kids are getting outside for recess and fresh air, and all these late winter germs will be going away!
This week of school is also one of my favorites because it's Hawaiian Week! We will be doing Hawaiian themed activities and will try a few native foods (pineapple, coconut...nothing fancy).
For those of you who are leaving town for Spring Break, please be safe! For those of you having a stay-cation, please be safe as well! I hope everyone gets plenty of rest and relaxation next week!
This Week in 3rd Grade:
SPELLING: NO SPELLING THIS WEEK!
