Happy March everyone. I hope you all had a great vacation. Florida was beautiful with sunny days and temps in the high 80's everyday. WE did numerous parks and poolside for most of the week. It was a very long drive on the way back. I am looking forward to seeing all of the kids again. We will also be welcoming a new student. Sarah will be joining us on Monday the 5th.
We have a few special days in March, so please check the Calendar page.
The book fair will be set up all this week. Our class will preview on Tuesday.
Please remind the kids that if they are participating in getting pledges for the PTA Read-A-Thon, that the money will be due on Thursday the 8th. That is the day we will go to the library to read with our buddies for half an hour. It is also Pajama Day.
We will continue studying fractions in Math and of course we continue with our multiplication facts.Our next unit math test will be next week.
Our second major writing project for the year is completed. The kids did a great job on their opinion writing. The teams will go over them on the teacher workshop day which is the 13th of March.
In Wonders, we will begin Unit 4 week 3. Our theme for the week is Fictional Narrative. We continue to read our weekly serial in the Union Leader on Tuesdays. Our new spelling words can be found on the spelling page. They are very tricky words this week.
Let the kids be kids. Every child has a strength. It is up to the teacher to find it or tap it so they can work to their highest potential. I tend to set the bar very high. Lifetime memories should be made in the classroom and at school. NBCS should be a place where kids enter happy and go home with a smile on their face. I want my kids getting up in the morning begging to go to school!
