Thank you for taking time to meet with me during our parent-teacher conferences this week. I enjoyed having the students there and able to hear about their successes and set goals together. This is an amazing group of kids and I really appreciate the parent support. I am truly blessed! ❤️

We are entering a very busy time of year! There are a lot of events coming up important pieces of information so I hope to keep you informed. Please check the “reminders” section at the bottom of this letter.

Our third grade service learning project involves a connection with the Whidbey Naval Air Station in Oak Harbor. We will be putting together care packages and writing letters. I like to do this in November for two reasons. First, it is Veteran’s Day and we have already been talking about who veterans are and how important they are to us and our country. And second, the children have SO much candy and I know some parents are eager to find an alternative to the consumption of all that sugar ;). We’d love any donations of Halloween Candy for these boxes. In addition to candy, I’ll put together a list of items and more detail soon. I just wanted to catch the Halloween candy window.

THANK YOU PARENTS, FOR AN AMAZING HALLOWEEN PARTY!

Literacy- This week we read about structural adaptations on penguins, while making mental images and practicing with the skill of inferences. We will take this to apply to two different types of camels next week and wrap up the unit on animal adaptations. For writing we moved from the prewrite on our dinosaur stories to the rough drafts. Creative writing is so fun at this age!

Math– We explored the concept of multiplication in equal groups, arrays, and number lines. Their eagerness and excitement about multiplication is so fun! I love it!

Religion– This week we took our saint research and began putting it in our PowerPoint slides. Students learned how to copy and paste images from the internet and spell check when their words are underlined in red. They finished two of the five slides and are loving this!

Science/Social Studies- We continued with fossils and after learning the oceans and continents, we focused in on the United States and the regions of the US in our map/geography unit. These regions will help us this spring with our Native American study.
