Dr. Seuss Day!

The students had a BLAST on Dr. Suess Day. They got to rotate to 5 different classrooms and hear different Dr. Suess stories and do an activity. in our room, we made Oobleck goo! If you didn't hear, the first trial was a big fail, but thanks for Nick's mom, Shreyan's mom, Damien's mom, and Trent's mom, we got it figured out and the 3rd graders got to make their goo! I cannot thank you all enough for your time and patience! I am forever grateful :)

Study Guide Homework Packet

This week we are reviewing for our Language Arts and Reading benchmark. Therefore, the students' homework packets are a little lengthier this week since they are to help review for these 2 tests! Please do not let your child wait until the last minute to start! I also added a page about the 3 branches of government and wind energy since those are what we are learning this week!
