Mrs. Stasney's 3rd Grade News

For the week of January 28th

Reading Logs

The students have several reading logs right now. One is the January calendar for the Pizza Hut Book It! reading program in our classroom. Another is the Aggie Dream Team reading log. The last is the Six Flags reading log. The students can record their reading each day on all 3 of these!

The Book It! log earns them a free personal-sized pizza, the Aggie Dream Team log earns them 2 free tickets to the Aggie men's basketball game on March 2nd, and the Six Flags log earns them a free admission ticket to either Six Flags over Texas in Arlington or Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. I encourage the students to participate in all three of these!
