I hope everyone had a great vacation. It is hard to believe that we only have about 2months of school left. The kids are working very hard and they are getting prepared for fourth grade.
On Tuesday, May 1st, we will be having a special guest visit the classroom. Mark Standen from the Manchester Karate School. Mark will be focusing on Self-Control, Listening Skills, Discipline, Good Manners, and Bullying Awareness and Avoidance. the kids are very excited.
On Thursday, May 3rd, we will have Jump Rope for Heart. If kids are getting pledges, please make sure they bring the pledges before or on that day. Our jumping time is our regular gym time, 10:35-11:15. Feel free to come and join us.
On May 8th, the New England Aquarium will be presenting to all of the third graders in the gym. Hopefully we have some parents signed up to get training for the day. Valerie posted a Sign Up Genius before vacation. Our time will be in the afternoon from 1;00 to 1:45. Trainers are needed for both morning and afternoon sessions.
We just finished our Unit 6 Math assessment. Now it is on to chapter 7. More fractions and liquid measurement. The kids are doing a great job on their fast math. Keep studying those multiplication facts.
In Wonders Reading, we are on Unit 5-week 3. Our genre for the week is Expository Test.
We are working hard to catch up om our President Unit. Our Presidential Reception will be held on the 25th of May in the afternoon. The presidents will make a short speech and presidential snacks will follow. We hope to see all of you there. Remember, the kids will write their speeches in class. They are responsible for finding a costume to dress up like their president. I do have some available outfits and accessories in the classroom if you are having a hard time finding something. Check with me if you need help. Modern presidents can wear white shirts and ties. It is up to the kids if they want to find props. Hope to see you on the 25th.
Happy Birthday this month to Sophia, Logan and Jenna.
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!
