Think Tank in Third

Weekly Update- November 22, 2016

Our Week at a Glance

Due to the short week our schedule was a little different.


We had a heavy math focus this week while trying to move forward with our e4tech lessons to finish up module 1. We also practiced our typing skills on www.typingclub.com. Remember students can login at home as well!


***No spelling list this week. ***

***No homework menu this week- continue working on family traditions project due December 2nd.***

Family Traditions Project

Family Traditions presentations will be on December 8th and 9th in the morning and afternoon.


If you plan to attend, please click the sign up genius link below to sign up for a time slot that you would like your child to present. If you do not plan to attend, we will assign your child either a morning or afternoon slot, as their time can be more flexible.


If you plan on allowing your child to bring a sample of their food (this is not required), please make these bite size samples! We will have all foods set up buffet style to save time.

The Columbus Dispatch Coming to The Think Tank!

As many of you read in our exciting letter that was sent home last Friday!


A writer from The Columbus Dispatch found our class on Twitter and wants to do a story on us! How exciting is that?! Talk about the positive power of social media! :) He interviewed Mrs. Callahan and Miss Pratt last Friday, and will be in on Monday Nov. 28th to take pictures of our class in action.


Please sign and return the form that was sent home last Friday which grants permission for your child to be photographed by The Dispatch. If you did not receive the letter or need a new copy, please let us know! If this form is not returned, your child cannot be photographed.
