Happy New Year to The Third Grade Thunder and all of their families. I hope you all had a great vacation. I missed all of you and I am looking forward to spending the rest of the year with you. We will also have a new student in our class beginning on January 2. Please make him feel at home and welcome him to our third grade family. I had a great time in New York City with my nephew Mr. Chris. We are ready to get back to school.
This week, being a short one, we will be reviewing most of our material that we covered the week before Christmas break. We will get ready for our Unit 3 Math assessment and get back to our poetry unit. We will try to finish up our weather unit in Science and tackle the upper case cursive letters.
In the next couple of weeks, we will do our Aimsweb assessments in Reading and Math. That should show some nice growth from the beginning of the year.
We will continue our weekly story on Tuesday in the Union Leader.
Have a good week everyone.
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!
