Here is what is coming up at Willard East Next week:
Spirit t-shirt forms AND yearbook forms have gone home! Check your child's backpack for these items! The t-shirts look great! I'm excited to see some of this new "Willard Wear" around East.
Yearbooks are available for order. They will not be delivered until the end of the year. If you order online, you can personalize your child's yearbook with their name and a clip art...plus just save the hassle of remembering sending a check in. You can return the order slip with a CHECK. No cash will be accepted.
Next Friday is "Duck Dynasty Day". Dig out your camo and dress your child up like the crew of Duck Dynasty! (Can you tell I am not a DD watcher?)
We are reviewing standards that were not mastered by the majority of the class right now. We are aiming to take our end of the unit summative next Friday and Monday, November 25th at the latest.
We will continue to work on informational writing. This week we looked at good beginnings and how to hook your reader, even in an informational piece.
Since we weren't supposed to have spelling with Common Core, I took down all of my spelling lists off of the website to avoid confusion. Now, we are doing spelling and I am working on getting those lists re-linked so you can have access to them should you need to.
We are starting our first unit of science and are exploring space! Next week, we will look at the Sun as a star and learn about the patterns we see daily because of the Sun.
We have a new specials schedule and our class now goes to P.E. on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please be sure that your child is wearing tennis shoes. If they are wearing boots or slip on shoes, they have to take them off, making it hard for them to run, play, and learn. Coach F (Coach J's student teacher) has also informed the class that Mondays are a work out day. Students need proper dress and can bring a water bottle that closes with them to class.
I think that is all for now! Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Letterman is a third grade teacher at Willard East. This is her 8th year in Willard, but her 10th year to teach third grade!
