Biography Book Reports!

Hooray! Hooray! Book Reports are finished!

The class did a phenomenal job with their presentations, reports and research. We had a lot of laughs and some somber moments, too (Abe Lincoln and MLKJ). I am amazed every year with each child's hard work on this project. Congrats to all!

My favorite quote during the presentations came from a visiting first grader:

  • "A lot of people died in the past!" - Cooper in Mrs. Megli's class.

Very true, kiddo. Very true.

First Quarter is FINISHED

The first quarter of your child's third grade year is over! Woohoo!

I am currently meeting with each family, so my e-mail responses might be delayed to a fuller schedule. October 17th, the report cards will be live for y'all to view. Next Friday, I will send a detailed e-mail with direction for viewing and any extra information, too.

Next quarter:

  • Reading: We will focus on Compare/Contrast skills and identify stories' sequence.
  • Math: First, we will focus on basic geometry properties and we will build our way into multiplication.
  • Grammar: Mostly sentences and their structure: clauses, contractions and compound vs simple.
  • Writing: We will close out our narrative unit and move into research writing skills.
  • Extra Projects: Genius Hour! After Fall Break, I will send home more information detailing our schedule and plans for this new concept in third grade! Look out!
