Hello Parents of 3M!

Happy FRIDAY! Our school year has been off to a great start! I hope your child is enjoying 3rd grade as much as I am! Our days have been filled with smiles, laughter, fun, and lots of learning! I am so lucky to have such a great group of kids! Take a look at the pictures below for some highlights into your 3rd graders past two weeks in room 208!



Notes:


If possible, please send in comics from the newspaper. We will be doing a project with them next week!



Scarecrow Contest

3S will be participating in the Lizzy Haddon Scarecrow contest. The theme this year is "People in the Neighborhood". Some examples of this are a police officer, firefighter, doctor, nurse, veterinarian, teacher, postman, baker, chef, dancer, construction worker, grandparents, scouts, ball players, etc… All scarecrows will be raffled off at the Fall Fair. We haven't come up with a class theme yet but if you have any materials to donate, we would really appreciate them! Some ideas of things we could use:


  • pantyhose
  • felt
  • buttons
  • fake flowers
  • fabric
  • snack for kiddos outside


Reminders:


  • Spelling test is moved to Wednesday. There will be no new words this week.
  • Science project planning sheet is due 12th
  • Final science project due 20th
  • There are links on my E-board with websites to help guide your child's research

Having fun sharing during Morning Meeting

Kindergarten Buddies!

We met with our buddies for the first time. We got to know them a little bit better by creating a book of our favorite things together. We also had the chance to read to our little buddy. Our 3rd graders were so great with the little ones! :)

Pollinating our plants with our bee sticks! Seed pods are now forming!
