I'm sure you all had some proud new "parents" come home last Friday and tell you the exciting news that our class adopted peanut babies! Each student has written a persuassive letter to the "adoption agency" (the teachers) explaining why they would be a good, fit parent to take care of a little peanut. This project allows for some fun and creativity, while allowing students to practice responsibility for something and have the opportunity to write about it.
All library books should be turned in this week. Keep your eye out for any stray books laying around your home and get those sent back in!
Thursday, our third graders will be walking to the high school to watch Suess Sayers be performed. This is just a fun, short trip that the elementary students have been able to take to watch this neat little production.
We also have the Book Fair going on this week! Be sure to visit and check out some of the great books that are being offered! Friday is the last day to visit.
Friday is the day of many great things! Friday is also the famous school carnival! Be sure to bring your family and come enjoy a night of food, fun, and auctions! We are hosting Wii games in our classroom! If you would still like to volunteer to help for a bit, contact me or Rebekah Brymer!
Friday will also be our last spelling test! So have your child study extra hard and go out on a high note in spelling! :)
Next Monday will be our Field Day. Be sure your child wears tennis shoes to protect their feet while playing and so they can play hard! Sunblock is another must. 3rd grade won't start until 12:00 and will go to 2:00, so we'll be right in the heat of the afternoon. Send sunblock with your child so he or she can lather up before playing! You also might want to send an extra change of clothes. Rumor has it that students can get dirty and maybe even a little wet during the day.
Students will also need a sack lunch from home that day. Please have your child tell me ASAP if they would need a sack lunch for Monday. I will turn my count in tomorrow or Wednesday so the cooks can have plenty ready.
I think that is all for this week! Have a great one! Only two more Mondays left for this school year...
