It's hard to believe this year is winding down! A couple of things I'd like to mention: First, our farm field trip is on Monday. I am missing a few permission slips. If your child has lost theirs, you can just send me a written note authorizing them to go with the class. Almost every year we've gone, it's been really cold. Please keep this in mind as your child picks out clothes for that day. Second,we will need to start securing some parent volunteers for the 3rd grade Battle of the Books which will be held on Wednesday, May 10th in the morning. If you could let me know over the next few weeks, that would be great! Last, we will be holding a class raffle during the last week of school. The students have earned "sticks" throughout the year and will have some left over from our store and the Mini-mall. They will be able to buy tickets with what they have left over. My goal is to have a nice prize for each student. I am asking for donations to make this happen. Some examples for the raffle include: games, water toys(no guns), $5 gift cards, craft kits, lego sets, etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I will be getting the Easter Party list out in the next week or two.
Thank you for all of your help!

It's definitely time for an update! This month is full of many fun activities and learning!

Here is the plan for each subject area:

Math: We just finished up our chapters on division and are now working on Chapter 8 which focuses on fractions. Mrs. Warren has taken over our math instruction and is doing a marvelous job!

Language Arts/Reading: Our CKLA units have been fascinating and fun. The units integrate science as well as social studies topics. Recently we finished our unit on the Vikings and  Space Exploration. Mrs. Davis has also incorporated art activities that go along with these units. Now Mrs. Warren is starting our unit on Native Americans.
Writing- Along with our new unit our students will be concentrating on informative writing. Editing skills are also practiced daily during bell work time.
Tier 1- I will continue working on our Tier 1 fluency and comprehension program using the CKLA readers.

Keyboarding: Keyboarding skills are practiced daily on our Chromebooks. Type-To-Learn is the program the students are using.

Upcoming Valentines Party: February 14th @ 2:30 p.m. Students are allowed to pass out Valentines if they have one for each student in the class. I will send home a list of students today.
