What's New in Mrs. Allen's Room?
I hope your families are enjoying Mr. Popper's Penguins! I'm reading it too, and love the story! With the visitors we had on Monday, it makes me almost want a penguin of my own...almost! Don't forget to sign your child's reading log so he/she can bring it to school Monday and earn a prize. There will be a trivia question over the first five chapters also. All students who answer correctly will be entered into a drawing for another prize!
I'm sure everyone has heard by now that we will be having school this Friday. That means that our Valentine's Day parties will be on Friday the 12th, instead of Thursday the 11th. I will send home a list of students in our class for those of you who wish to get Valentine's.
Have a wonderful week!
This Week in 3rd Grade:
GRAMMAR: Possessive Pronouns
- precaution* *bonus words
WRITING: We have worked up to writing for 13 minutes without stopping! And we celebrate every little minute we add! On Monday, we will begin working on a writing prompt set up just like the I-STEP, so the class will know what to expect.
MATH: We have finished our unit on perimeter and area!! Although the test was scheduled for last Thursday, I did not give it until Friday so the class could have more time to practice. On Monday, we will begin working with fractions!
SOCIAL STUDIES: The class will begin their last social studies unit on economics.
- Our One-School, One-Book program began last Monday!! Each family should have received one copy of the book, Mr. Popper's Penguins to keep at home at reach with your children. Your child will bring home a weekly reading log that will be due on MONDAYS in February. There will be classroom incentives for family reading time!! This will also help with AR goals!
- Please remember...if the temperatures (and wind chill) are above 20 degrees, we will be going outside, so PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS DRESSED ACCORDINGLY. In the event that we cannot go outside due to the weather, if you have any gently used board games at home that are no longer in use that you would like to donate to our recess closet, they would be great appreciated!
- 3rd Quarter book report info is posted on my classroom website: mrsallencc.weebly.com
- For one more week the student council will be collecting "Pennies for Patients" to raise money for childhood leukemia and lymphoma. If you have loose change lying around the house or the car, please send it in with your child! :)
