Spirit Days

We have two more spirit days this year. We kept them simple because we all know how crazy May and June can be. 🙂

Friday, June 1st: Wear your Laps for LeTort T-Shirts

Thursday, June 7th: Wear sunglasses and bright colors (The Future is BRIGHT!)

This Week

Tomorrow the kids are welcome to bring a sleeping bag/blanket and flashlight for a little camping fun in the afternoon.

I know that it is late notice (sorry!!), but I am looking for a couple parent volunteers who would be willing to come in on Friday afternoon from 2:00-3:15 to help with a little end of the year party for our third graders. We are keeping it simple, but would love a few extra pairs of hands. If you are able to come in on Friday, please just send me an email to let me know.

As always, thanks for all that you are doing at home to make the end of the year a success. Seven days…

Vocabulary Parade

THANK YOU!! Thank you to each of you who helped your kids create their costumes for today’s vocabulary parade. It was such a fun day! We spent our morning playing word games and then ended the day with the parade. Here are pictures of the amazingly creative and ingenious costumes in 3-B. (Here are the pictures in video form)

Week of May 7, 2018

What a fun week in third grade! The field trip was amazing! Thank you again to all of my fabulous chaperones. I truly could not have done it without you. We ended the week with one of my favorite days of the year…Laps for LeTort!


Our Week

Math – We are finishing up our Math ABC Books. I have been so impressed with the kids’ creativity! The students are also hard at work on creating their very own math board games. It is a fun way to apply everything that they have learned this year.

ELA – In writing, we are finishing up our poetry anthologies. We cannot wait to share our poetry with  you at Popcorn and Poetry. If you aren’t able to attend, look for your child’s completed poetry anthology to come home soon.

Content – The students created their very own creature, full of adaptations to help it survive in its habitat.

Spelling – The current spelling list is our last list of the year!
