Dynamic Broncos Weekly Update

December 15th - 19th

Season's Greetings!

I'm sure you are all gearing up for the upcoming holidays! The Dynamic Broncos are certainly excited about all of the events coming up this week. Here is a rundown of the week ahead. With so many special events and celebrations our weekly schedule is a bit different than normal. In this week's newsletter I have just included some highlights for this week. Please email me if you have any questions!

Writing Workshop

The Dynamic Broncos have grown so much as writers! I am so proud of all the work they have done throughout this unit on Crafting True Stories. Although not all of our stories have been typed, or rewritten with "perfect" handwriting, we are ready to share them with the world. The children are so proud of the important ways that they learned and grew as narrative writers during our study. On Wednesday, the children will share their stories with their fellow third graders in Ms. Hutcheson's and Mrs. Wright's classes in a special celebration in the chapel.

When we return from our vacation, we will begin a study of opinion writing!


Tic Tac Toe grid activities are due on Wednesday. We will also have our assessment on Wednesday.


We have wrapped up Chapter 4 and will be diving into a new study of subtraction. Over the break, if there is time, it may be beneficial for your Dynamic Bronco to review their basic subtraction facts.

You may find the following websites helpful for reviewing facts to 20:


Thursday afternoon will be all about celebrating the winter holidays!

Kate Hersch, Gus's mom, will be visiting to talk to the kids about Hanukkah (which begins tomorrow evening). Immediately following, we will have our class Christmas Party. Apologies in advance for the extremely excited children that are sure to greet you on Thursday after school.
