The children will be able to participate in the Third Grade Book Swap tomorrow afternoon. They can bring as many books as they wish to donate, and will receive up to 5 tickets to “purchase” new-to-them books.
The children and I will prepare for conferences next week. The children will take part in some self-reflecting on their progress so far in third grade. Like in October, your children will “run the show.” Conference registration for all families began this morning. Please let me know if you need assistance.
We will have one more skating session in PE on Monday. Feel free to come skate with your children (you must wear a helmet).
The children continue to practice their multiplication and division facts (x2, x3, x4, x5, and x10). Next week, we will dive into x6. The class was able to peruse owl books and take notes on which Minnesota owl each child would like to study. Next week, they will make their final selections and I will put them into parliaments (a group of owls). Before spring break, we will also dissect owl pellets.
Reminder: there is no school for children next Thursday and Friday due to conferences. There is childcare on Thursday from 8:30-3:30pm; please check with Katie Peterson about availability.
