Room 603 Update
First week done!
Last Week Review
We talked a lot about working together and the benefits of effective collaboration. We did many team building activities, and ended the week doing a STEM activity where teams worked together to build a "Spaghetti tower". The teams did a great job and showed very effective communication skills!
We introduced the writing process this week using playdoh! Students were able to go through the whole process from brainstorming to publishing to learn the steps needed for a great piece of writing. This year we will be focusing on writing thorough informational/expository, opinion, and narrative paragraphs.
This week the ONLY homework is for each student to organize his/her 3rd grade binder. Instructions were sent home on Monday and they are up on the homework page as well. They are due on Friday, September 11.
*Again - there is no need to get any new supplies for this. Students can get all the supplies they need in class. Thank you!
Back to School Night recap
Thank you to every parent who was able to make it out to Back to School night! We went through a lot of information and there are probably some things I didn't have a chance to go through in depth or skipped over. All resources for the night are on our website here.
Please take a moment to go over them and turn in any forms needed. Thanks!
