Hello wonderful 3rd grade families!
With STAAR Tests behind us, we are now focusing on some new and exciting projects at school. For Language Arts and Social Studies we will be researching important people such as inventors, scientists, teachers, explorers, political figures, and athletes. The project will end with a Wax Museum presentation in the school cafeteria on May 23rd from 1:45-2:30. We are so excited!
For Reading, we will be good hosts and hostesses at school and at home with visits from Flat Stanley. Students will enjoy writing about their adventures with Flat Stanley and we will present our adventures from our journals each day in class. Please email me pictures if you would like and I will show them to the class. Also, check Twitter for other fun pics!
As a bonus, we have had some critters in the classroom. After purchasing some milkweed from our CPES Girl Scout troops, we had a caterpillar hatch, form a chrysalis, and finally we got to release a BEAUTIFUL Monarch! We have a couple more caterpillars and a few more eggs still on the leaves, so hopefully we will raise a few more Monarchs before summer!
I have enjoyed your students so much this year and I am very thankful to have gotten to be their 3rd grade teacher! THANKS for sharing your kids with me, and as always THANKS for your support from home!!!
