Mrs. G's Classroom News
September 30, 2016
We have many upcoming events next week. Please keep checking my online, color-coded classroom calendar on my WEBSITE. Also take note of the dates below:
Oct. 3 - Student Council speeches for those who want to run to be a Hornung Leadership representative. One sign is allowed to be posted in the room and a speech is required. Students do not have to write out their speeches unless they want to. Two students from each third grade class will be voted on and the winners will be announced at the very end of the day. The first meeting for those who are voted in will be Thursday at 8:15am.
Oct. 5 - Walk to school day. Please see Mr. Yates' stinging news newsletter to read more. I will be at Mt. Brighton in the morning with my sign. Look for me!
Oct. 7 - Brighton's Homecoming parade. I will be walking with other teachers in the district weather permitting. I will stop in front of Gia's Salon right on Main Street to greet students who decide to attend the parade. We will take a quick photo and of course I may have a little treat or something to hand out to them!
Students logged into the Achieve 3000 for the first time Friday. This non-fiction program is leveled individually for each student. We hope to do Achieve 3000 once a week to read interesting articles, participate in related polls to the articles and do the activities to help us understand non-fiction text. This program is great for preparing our third graders for the M-Step standardized test that will occur at the end of the school year.

In social studies this week, Mrs. Allen taught about the four cardinal directions. She also went over Michigan landforms.
