A few weeks ago we were learning about Plains Native Americans. Each reading group practiced a reader’s theater telling facts and information about the Plains. Then we performed them for each other using popsicle stick puppets. It was fun!
It was really nice to meet everyone last week during conferences. It goes so fast! Thanks again for making time to come in and chat. Click on our newsletter to read about our week.
I have posted some pictures from our fun Pumpkin Investigation. We measured our pumpkins, weighed them, and counted the ribs and seeds. After all that, we noticed when pumpkins have more ribs on the outside, they usually have more seeds on the inside. We read that in a book and were curious if our pumpkins would prove it. Yes, they did! For every rib on the outside there should be a row of seeds on the inside. Interesting!
I will post a few pictures from our last couple of weeks. Sorry I haven’t kept up with that! Click on the link to read about our learning this week. Don’t forget we DO NOT have school on Friday. Have a great week!

We had fun ending last week with a Minute to Win it game. Can you get a cookie from your forehead to your mouth WITHOUT touching it with your hands? Mine ended up on my back! You can see some students got it! Click on the link to read our newsletter for the week.
Happy Monday! I will send home a weekly newsletter so you can read what skills your child will be practicing for the week. I also have it printed on the back of the homework sheet that is in the take home folder. Click on the link to read the newsletter for the week. Hope to see you Wed. for Open House from 4-6 pm.
I can’t believe how fast summer is going! I miss seeing your children’s faces everyday, however I will still see them in the halls. I hope they visit me! I would recommend you UNSUBSCRIBE by using the Unsubscribe link in the email from this post. I’m sure you would rather hear from your new third grade teacher.
